With thermal fuses you´ll make a big step towards a higher safety of your device.
It´s surely not necessary to remind that any device can fail. Failure of a component, overload of a component (underestimated sizing), external influence and many other reasons are daily causing failures of devices. If the result of a malfunction is only an intermediate shutdown, it´s let´s say a better case. But if a device malfunction could cause further damage or even fire, it´s surely worth to make everything possible to prevent it.
The world of industrial automation is entering the fourth industrial revolution. A paradigm shift in which rising awareness of energy efficiency, environmental concerns and regulations, qualitative productivity and operational health and safety, contribute to the continued growth of machine to machine (M2M) technology.
Powervation Ltd. (www.powervation.com), the Intelligent Digital Power™ company, announced its latest series of digital DC/DC controllers for gaming & high-performance motherboards, embedded computing, networking, and telecom applications. The PV3203 & PV3205 digital dual-phase controllers provide fast transient response and new features to improve power supply & system performance, while reducing overall bill of material component cost.
Mouser Electronics, Inc. the global authorized distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the UNO POWER DIN-Rail Power Supply from Phoenix Contact. The UNO Power Supply is designed for applications requiring power of up to 100W and provides a maximum energy efficiency of up to 90%.
Murata announced the launch of the D1U86P Series of ultra-high density power converters from Murata Power Solutions. The 1600 watt rated D1U86 features AC-input and DC-input models. The power supplies are designed to fit 1U enclosures, and measure a mere 86 mm wide and 197.7 mm deep. High density packaging techniques provide a market leading 38W per cubic inch power density.
Mouser Electronics, Inc., the global authorized distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the ADS8339 Low Power ADCs from Texas Instruments. Optimized for low power operation, where power consumption scales directly with speed, the ADS8339 is a miniature, micro-power, 16-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) that dissipates only 17.5mW at a sampling rate of 250KHz, and only 0.25µW in power-down state.
Linear Technology Corporation announces the LTC3899, a triple output (buck, buck, boost) 29µA quiescent current, synchronous DC/DC controller that maintains output voltage regulation over a 2.2V to 60V input range. A 12V car battery can droop to less than 4 volts during engine restart or cold crank, causing reset of infotainment systems and other electronics that operate from 5 volts and higher.
Mouser Electronics, Inc., the global authorized distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, today announced that they have entered into a global distribution agreement with Molex for its GWconnect heavy duty connectors and accessories. GWconnect is a recent acquisition by Molex Incorporated and expands their product line into heavy duty high voltage connectors and accessories.
Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE:FSL) introduced the groundbreaking S32V vision microprocessor – the first automotive vision system-on-chip (SoC) with the requisite reliability, safety and security measures to automate and ‘co-pilot’ a self-aware car.
With the Figaro sensors, it´s possible to determine an oxygen concentration accurately and reliably.
Biochemistry, medical, air-conditioning, plant growing in glass-houses, protection against fire or explosion,… these are only a few fields, where it´s usually necessary or at least desirable to know exact concentration of oxygen in air.
