Family of compact high-voltage supplies
HiTek Power has introduced the OL10K family of 10kW high voltage power supplies for use in a wide range of ion and electron beam systems. The supply’s 3U-high converter box is one of the smallest in the industry, and an optional active arc management system is particularly useful in ion implanter applications.
Solid-state switch is rated for 10 million operations
The new DS series sensor from Foremost Electronics occupies the same outline as a conventional snap-action switch (“microswitch”), but its design uses Hall-effect sensing to eliminate electro-mechanical contacts and achieve very long operating life. Designers can specify the DS for the same sensing applications where they would previously have used a snap-action switch – open/closed sensing of doors or panels, actuation detection for pressu...
Lead-free miniature coded switch delivers 3 Ncm torque and 10,000 cycle life for space-saving user c
Now available from Foremost Electronics is the first of a series of new switch families manufactured by Elma, the C08 miniature coded panel switch, believed to be the world’s smallest coded panel switch to combine high torque tactile feedback (3 Ncm) long life (10,000 cycles) and compatibility with lead-free reflow soldering. Designed to offer a space-saving user control for price-sensitive mobile or handheld applications such as two-way radios...
National Instruments Brings Engineers from CAD to Motion in Minutes
National Instruments has released NI Motion Assistant 2.0, the latest version of the interactive software for prototyping single- and multi-axis motion control systems. Machine builders and OEMs can use the new NI Motion Assistant 2.0 to import motion profiles from CAD and drafting programs using the popular DXF file format.
AC-DC Front-End Reduces Power Consumption in Server, Telecom, and Datacom Applications
Power-One, Inc. introduces the FNP1500-12G AC-DC front-end; designed to reduce host-system power consumption by combining 90% efficiency with an output that is I2C programmable from 7-13VDC. This wide adjustment range enables users to select a bus voltage that minimizes their system-specific I2R distribution losses and increases the efficiencies of downstream bricks and point-of-load converters. I2C adjustability provides the option to dynamicall...
