Tiny Ethernet switch for space critical applications
It has been announced that Advantech, a supplier of industrial communication solutions, has introduced an eight centimetre high EKI-2525LI Ethernet switch aimed at applications where space is a critical issue for users.
New range of rugged capacitive touch switches launched by Bulgin
The new range of rugged capacitive touch switches have been launched by Bulgin and are suitable for repetitive operation. The sealed IP68 rated switches are activated by the touch of a finger and can be used across a wide range of applications from heavy industrial to consumer appliances.
Broad range of process sealed switches
Process sealed switches offer dust tight housing with protection against splashing water, low pressure water jets or temporary immersion up to one meter with sealing degree reaching up to IP67. Also available with some series’ are protective splash proof boots.
UL approved relays with 50A rating
It has been announced that CIT Relay & Switch is offering the J115F Series 50A relay with UL approval and shorter than industry average lead times. The rugged J115F Series has high dielectric strength coil to contact up to 4000VRMS.
SSW detect switch for safety critical applications
It has been announced by C&K that they are introducing the new SSW Detect Switch. This next-gen double pole double throw (DPDT) device will enable customers to improve functional safety in their electronic designs. It is defined by several key features, including built-in redundancy, self-failure detection and lack of bi-stability with controlled switching time.
Stepper motors reduce vibration and heat generation
A family of stepper motors that deliver 10% higher torque than currently available alternatives but produce 3dB(A) less noise with significantly reduced vibration and heat generation has been introduced by EAO. Improvements in motor efficiency has enabled manufacturer Sanyo Denki to boost the torque of its new SanmotionSF24 Series of 42mm stepper motors by 10% compared to current equivalent sized alternatives but with 15% lower inertia.
Solid-state relays use SCR output to add reliability
Now available in Europe through TTI are CX series SIP solid-state relays from Sensata that are ideally suited for high density PCB applications where a maximum of 5A of current is required. The components utilise a back-to-back SCR output which provides added reliability in commercial and heavy industrial applications.
Terminal blocks feature PUSH IN connection technology
The extended A range of Wedimuller’s Klippon Connect terminal blocks expands Conrad Business Supplies portfolio of electromechanical solutions for control cabinet design. The terminal blocks now feature the PUSH IN connection technology.
Tiny footprint relays featuring fast operate times
The reed relay company, Pickering Electronics, has announced a very small reed relay. The Series 124 is part of Pickering’s new ultra-high density 4mm2 reed relay range product line, which takes up the minimum board area of only 4x4mm, allowing the highest packing density possible.
Low voltage blower fans target high-density equipment
A series of small, low voltage blower fans that deliver a static pressure of 1950P (max.) and an airflow of 111m3 /hour (max.) at a rated speed of 8200 rpm are available from EAO. Developed by Sanyo Denki, the San Ace 9BMC blower fan measures just 97mm by 33mm but delivers the cooling performance and low noise requirements demanded by high-density equipment such as Servers, PSUs, fuel cells and air-con units.
