DuplineSafe(TM) modules add safety-critical systems to fieldbus applications
New Carlo Gavazzi DuplineSafe(TM) bus transmitters and relays allow customers to leverage investment in the Dupline fieldbus system to monitor safety-critical emergency-stop switches. Major benefits of using the Dupline fieldbus for safety monitoring include reduced wiring while meeting international safety standards, and enhanced diagnostics to trace faults quickly and maximise uptime.
Phase-monitoring relay prevents motor burnout
Finder has introduced the 72.31 three-phase monitoring relay, which is used for detecting a loss of phase or incorrect phase rotation when using three-phase supplies. This compact relay is ideally suited for the protection of motors in plant and machinery, and helps to satisfy the mandatory requirement of ensuring the correct rotation of motors in transportable equipment.
Very small photo-IC output couplers
Toshiba Electronics Europe has expanded its TLP7xx family of photocouplers with three new devices that provide totem pole outputs. Supplied in SDIP packaging – making them 50% smaller than previous devices - the new photocouplers are suitable for a variety of applications including CAN bus interfaces, high speed data transfer, and intelligent power module signal isolation.
3.3V Optocoupler from Avago is Industry's Fastest
Avago Technologies has just introduced what is said to be the industry's fastest 3.3 V/5 V CMOS-compatible optocoupler, capable of transmitting data at 25 megabaud (MBd). This speed makes it ideal for high-speed, data-line transmission applications, such as those in industrial networking, including PROFIBUS and DeviceNet.
RoHS compliant right-angle Tact switch
knitter-switch announces a new right-angle tact switch series designed for a wide variety of applications where a reliable, low cost switch is required. The series TSSE 6xx-RA is washable to IP46 and features a lifetime of 500,000 cycles. It is RoHS compliant and leadfree solderable to 255ºC ±5ºC for a maximum of 10s.
Surge Arrestors Offer Ultra Low Capacitance for xDSL Applications
STMicroelectronics has introduced a range of surge arrestors designed to protect ADSL/VDSL modems and similar high bit-rate communications equipment on the CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) side.
Device Offers Low Capacitance for HDMI Enabled Products
Semtech has announced the RClamp0544M, a four-line protection device with the low capacitance and high protection levels necessary for high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) and digital visual interface (DVI) enabled products.
New Force operated joystick
Aerco has announced the Model 462 compact, two-axis, force operated joystick control from Ultra MSI. Because of its small size and low weight, it is ideal for systems that require precise control and where space is limited.
85W Heat Sinkable Resistor keeps its Cool
The latest from Ohmite’s product range to use its innovative thick film technology is the TFH85, a heat sinkable resistor which provides a robust 85W power rating (at 25°C case temperature) in a compact TO-264 package.
Carlo Gavazzi has introduced a multifunction solid state relay that provides phase angle, distributed control and burst switching.
