Distributor and supplier team up to aid pushbutton migration
A collaboration between RS Components and Siemens will help customers with the phase out of the manufacturer’s SIRIUS 3SB3 22mm pushbutton range and the migration to Siemens’ SIRIUS ACT range of devices. In October 2017, Siemens announced the beginning of a gradual phase-out period – lasting two years – of its 22mm SIRIUS 3SB3 command and signalling devices, providing customers with enough time to migrate to the ...
Fan controllers deliver temperature-sensitive speed control
Energy-efficient fan controllers together with the 4300N series of fans from ebm-papst, are in stock at RS Components. The latest fan controller solutions are low-cost, credit-card-sized devices. The DCP controllers offer optimised power consumption by providing temperature-sensitive speed control for four-wire PWM controlled compact fans at 12, 24 and 48V DC.

Rugged relay designed for harsh inductive loads
TE Connectivity (TE) is pleased to announce the release of its new CII FC-335 series relay. Designed to manage harsh inductive, motor and lamp loads, this high-performance relay offers a rugged means of power switching in a range of aerospace, defence and marine applications. TE’s new relays are built to handle higher capacity loads than most comparable mid-range relays on the market, offering a 35A/28VDC resistive load rating.
Inductor delivers up to 250A continuous current rating
A Very High-Current Through-Hole Inductor - the Vishay Dale IHXL-2000VZ-5A – is available from New Yorker Electronics. The Vishay IHXL technology combines the metal composite construction of a pressed metal powder with an insulating binder which allows for high saturation magnetisation and high field strength – so it handles high transient current spikes without saturation.
Latest patent on zero-leakage high-voltage analog switches
ICsense, a TDK group company, is a supplier of analogue, mixed-signal and high-voltage ASICs (Application Specific ICs). The company has filed another patent to strengthen its portfolio in analogue circuits. The invention allows users to implement analogue, floating high-voltage switches that don’t load its connected lines. Contrary to existing solutions using large resistances and thereby large time constants, this invention provides a sol...
