Utilizing the latest in thin-film vacuum deposition technology, Dontech’s (Doylestown, PA) CAR-Series and VC1-IM-Series index-matched ITO coatings on glass filters provide optical and electrically conductive properties.
Oriental Motor (Torrance, CA) has announced a 0.72° All-in-One Stepper Motor, Driver and Controller, the PKA Series. By combining the high performance motor with a built-in microstepping driver, and stored data controller, noise and vibration reduction are achieved.
Elk Industries (Melbourne, FL) has released a line of LED lighting modules with efficiencies of over 200 Lumens per watt of optical output, in a full spectrum (cool white, warm white) and various colors.
Murata (Mansfield, MA) has announced the UDQ series of isolated digitally controlled DC-DC converters developed by Murata Power Solutions. The UDQ series is packaged in the industry standard quarter-brick format incorporating the ABC (Advanced Bus Converter) pinout for PMBus communications to an isolated DC-DC converter.
The Schaffner Group has enhanced its family of IEC Lock power cords with Japanese PSE approvals for existing IL13 family and introduces the new IL19 family for currents up to 16 A. The power cord families IL with the patented locking system needs no change of existing IEC inlets or IEC inlet filters and locks without additional fixture in every standardized IEC inlet.
Kycon (San Jose, CA) has expanded their USB connector series, adding a High Temp USB A-type receptacle with a shorter body. With no compromises in USB characteristics, the smaller package size fits in space-constrained designs while withstanding high temperatures.
The MPU-400M series, available now from MicroPower Direct (Stoughton, MA), is a family of compact 400W AC/DC power supplies that are certified to EN 60601 3RD edition. These power supplies offer a unique combination of high power, safety features, robust performance and compact construction.
Cognex Corporation (Natick, MA) has announced the Cognex Industrial Camera (CIC) series, a new line of GigE Vision digital industrial cameras designed for easy integration with VisionPro and CVL vision software.
Texas Instruments Incorporated (Dallas, TX) has expanded its sensorless, brushless DC (BLDC) motor driver portfolio with a new device designed for high efficiency and low noise, which requires a low external component count of only one capacitor.
Allied Motion (Netherlands) has announced the KinetiMax 32EB-DS, an extremely compact brushless DC motor with a dual output shaft. This KinetiMax is an outer rotor motor and has two identical shafts and two identical bearings capable of handling high side loads on both sides of the motor.
Physik Instrumente (PI) (Germany) has introduced a new series of miniaturized, piezo-motor-driven linear positioners. The small dimensions make these new positioners the ideal choice for high precision motion in confined spaces.
In order to increase controller scalability while enhancing user functionality and flexibility, Beckhoff Automation (Savage, MN) has introduced the new CX9020 Embedded PC. The CX9020 is suitable for a wide range of PLC and motion control applications in small and medium sized machines, systems or buildings.
Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) has announced two new volatile, SPI digital potentiometers (digipots)—the MCP41HV31 and MCP41HV51 (MCP41HVXX)—its first to operate at 10, 12, 18, 24, and particularly 36 volts, for systems requiring wide signal swing or high power-supply voltages.
The MICU 300A-S/LF inductive coupler series from Premo (Spain) transmits the PLC signals between power line and PLC data transceiver without connection of communication cable to power line. This inductive coupler has a safer installation (High insulation > 5 kV) than a capacitive coupler.
Saelig Company (Fairport, NY) has introduced the ScanaPLUS Logic Analyzer - a robust, versatile, and multi-application 9-channel logic analyzer. The ScanaPLUS' inputs can be configured to use two integral differential receivers for direct connection to balanced buses like CAN or RS485, with an additional five receivers for RS232 or LIN bus serial busses.
