Wind turbines present some of the most challenging environments for electrical and electronic installations. Often subject to extremely high humidity levels, high temperatures and vibration, these installations require specialised protection measures. As a result of these consultations, Electrolube recommended its ER2188 UL94 V-0 approved encapsulation resin for this application.
Linear Technology Corporation announces the LTC3769, a synchronous step-up DC/DC controller that replaces the boost diode with a high efficiency N-channel MOSFET, increasing efficiency and maximizing output current capability. This controller produces 24V at up to 5A output from a 12V input with up to 98% efficiency, making it ideal for automotive, industrial and medical applications where a step-up DC/DC converter must have low heat dissipation in a small solution size.
PRQA | Programming Research, a global leader in static analysis, announces a major upgrade to QA·C++. Version 3.2 is a new release of this leading static analysis tool for C++ environments and incorporates extensive new functionality.
Germering (Germany) - Distec - leading German specialist for TFT flat screens and system solutions for industrial and multimedia applications - responds with the new vacuum-bonding assembly technology VacuBond® to the current development towards more fragile TFT display structures, touchscreens and front glasses.
Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE: PULS), a leading provider of electronic components, introduces its new gate drive transformers for high efficiency DC/DC converters. The PG1427 series has a high HIPOT of 2700VDC and functional insulation between the gate and the drive windings.
Linear Technology Corporation announces the LTC3124, a dual-phase, 3MHz, current-mode, synchronous boost DC/DC converter with output disconnect and inrush current limiting. Dual-phase operation significantly reduces peak inductor and capacitor ripple currents, minimizing component size while delivering lower output ripple versus an equivalent single-phase device.
Microchip announces the new PIC32 Bluetooth Starter Kit. The full-featured kit features a PIC32 microcontroller (MCU), HCI-based Bluetooth radio, Cree high-output multi-colour LED, 3 standard single-colour LEDs, an analogue 3-axis accelerometer, analogue temperature sensor and 5 push buttons for user-defined inputs.
Ametherm today introduced four new series of NTC chip thermistors for high-accuracy temperature measurement. Recently acquired from RTI Electronics Inc., the STC0134-X, STC0138-X, STC0143, and STC0144-X series devices are available in a variety of compact sizes, while providing fast response times and high-temperature operation to +150 °C.
Products target diverse range of applications in panel maintenance, conveyor systems and motor control.
OXFORD, UK - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, is significantly ramping up its levels of support for electrical equipment installers and maintenance engineers in electrical systems and automation markets with in-stock availability of many thousands of new product lines from leading manufacturer Phoenix Contact.
AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has launched the new FRC Series medium power DC-link film capacitors, which feature a wide range of capacitance and voltage values in addition to self-healing properties. Designed for use in DC filter circuits, power supplies, industrial inverters, UPS systems, motor drives, power converters, and solar inverters, FRC Series capacitors are comprised of dry, wound, metallized polypropylene film dielectric encased in a size A, self-extinguishing, cylindrical plastic case sealed with thermosetting resin and featuring four snap-in terminals that facilitate easy mounting to PCBs.
