Henkel has introduced Loctite 4090, a hybrid adhesive that combines the key features of structural and instant adhesives — bond strength and speed. This combination provides high impact resistance, high-strength bonding on a variety of substrates and high temperature resistance, making it versatile enough to solve a range of design and assembly challenges.
Mouser Electronics is stocking AMR magnetic switch sensors from Murata. The sensors are said to be ideal for open/close applications such as mobile phones and notebook PCs; they are also suitable for consumer white goods as well as industrial and security equipment.
TTI is stocking TE Connectivity’s mini I/O industrial connector system. This compact, latching, wire-to-board I/O interface is one quarter of the size of a conventional RJ45 plug and features two points of contact for increased reliability in high-vibration industrial applications.
Bearings specialist igus has launched two variants of its compact e-spool energy chain. The heavy-duty (HD) and motor flange versions are more powerful, enabling users to more easily retract and guide cables, while the e-spool range as a whole allows engineers to save space thanks to its small footprint. Quick and easy to install, the e-spool is flexible, providing cables reliably in any direction for travel up to 14m.
Infineon Technologies’ XMC1000 ARM Cortex-M0 32-bit industrial microcontrollers are now available from Mouser Electronics. The XMC1000 is suitable for harsh industrial control applications including high-end motor control, digital power conversion and LED lighting.
At the Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE) 2014, GaN Systems will showcase its range of gallium nitride high-power transistors based on its proprietary Island Technology. The devices bring smaller, lighter and more efficient power electronics to numerous applications including consumer appliances, data centre server racks, heavy-duty battery-operated power tools and notebook travel adapters.
Linear Technology has introduced the LT8580, a current-mode, fixed-frequency step-up DC/DC converter with an internal 1A, 65V switch. It operates from an input voltage range of 2.55V to 40V, making it suitable for applications with input sources ranging from a single-cell lithium-ion to automotive inputs.
Fluke introduces 500 series analysers for the testing of storage batteries and battery banks download
Fluke has introduced a range of battery analysers designed to simplify the maintenance, troubleshooting and performance testing of individual storage batteries and battery banks used in critical battery back-up applications.
Delcam will highlight the latest developments for high-speed and five-axis machining in the 2015 version of its PowerMILL CAM system at two half-day seminars at Matsuura’s European headquarters in Coalville, Leicestershire, on 14 October.
Control valve specialist Samson Controls offers a range of aseptic valves that incorporate the important features of smooth, crevice-free surfaces and are manufactured to quality assurance systems certified to ISO 9001, while also meeting stringent FDA requirements.
Igus has launches an accessory for e-chains and e-tubes: the CFV strain-relief element. This offers users the chance to relieve cables of strain outside of the chain cross section, even in enclosed energy tubes. The CVF ensures that cables within the moving e-chain do not move around when moving. In addition, with a stepped design to secure cables of different diameters, it ensures simple installation when strain relieving several cables.
The IR-USB infrared temperature sensor provides a reliable and economical method for most non-contact temperature monitoring applications. Each unit is factory calibrated to provide excellent sensitivity, fast response, and stability.
ROLEC has introduced Type R models to its handCASE range of handheld enclosures. The Type R models enable design engineers to mount larger membrane keypads and displays and are designed for demanding industrial applications including handheld machine controllers, robotics and heavy-duty test and measurement instruments.
On stand F42 at the PPMA Show, ABB Robotics will showcase key features of its IRB 460 robot, said to be the ‘fastest palletising robot in the world’. The event runs from 30 September to 2 October at the NEC in Birmingham.
Converting solar energy into electrical energy is easily done using Linear Technology’s LTC3105 boost converter with Maximum Power Point Control (MPPC). The MPPC feature allows the converter to extract the maximum power from a solar cell under varying sunlight conditions.
