LD015D power supply
Power Sources Unlimited has announced the LD015D Series AC-DC Constant Current LED driver power supply, which is fully potted and suitable for dry and damp locations.
It adheres to UL1310 Class 2 Safety Standards (110V AC) or CE compliancy (230V AC).
Features include input voltage of 110 or 230V AC, DC output ranges from 8 to 48V DC and wide selection of pre-adjusted constant current outputs.
Other features include: operating temperature range of -20 to 60C, phase dimmable, compatible with standard Triac and electronic low-voltage dimmers; and 82 per cent efficient typical.
Units are RoHS compliant, Reach compliant, FCC Class B, CE, EN61000-4, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 11 and UL.cUL safety certified, and carry a three-year warranty.
The Eltek Valere Flatpack2 HE Series of rectifiers has been introduced into the global telecommunications market, offering a conversion efficiency up to 96.5 per cent and a 50 per cent reduction in wasted energy, according to Power Sources Unlimited.
This report describes an isolated, power-factor-corrected, very high-efficiency LED driver designed to drive an LED string of 30V at a current of 500mA from an input voltage range of 90–265VAC.
With the PMCprotego D (D.48/D.72), the highest safety level (PLe/SIL3) can also be achieved for the STO function without an additional safety card (PMCprotego S1) if the shutdown paths of the PMCprotego D are tested by an external device (for example, safety control). This application note from Pilz Automation shows in principle the procedure for such a test.
Aerotech has released its Npaq 6U high-power drive rack, which uses plug-in amplifiers supporting both linear and PWM topologies to control brushless, DC brush or stepper motors.
Linear Technology has announced the LT8490 — a synchronous buck-boost battery-charging controller for lead-acid and lithium batteries, featuring automatic maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and temperature compensation. Applications include solar-powered battery chargers, lithium-ion battery chargers, multiple types of lead-acid battery charging and battery-equipped industrial or portable military equipment.
