Intertronics has introduced its air-cooled Phoseon FireEdge UV LED cure range, which is designed for pinning and curing adhesives, coatings and inks with high peak irradiance up to 5W/cm2 and small form factor.
Mouser Electronics is offering MPX2053 series air pressure sensors from Freescale Semiconductor. The sensors provide highly accurate pressure readings from 0–7.25psi (0–50kPa). The series is designed for a variety of applications that demand a high level of accuracy, including medical diagnostic equipment such as blood pressure monitors, pump motor control, robotics and pressure switching.
Critical Power and Flowbattery have announced a collaboration agreement that will see both companies aiming for the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) market sectors, including flywheel UPS, fuel-cell UPS and large data-centre UPS installations.
The LTC3624 is a high-efficiency, 17V-input-capable synchronous buck regulator from Linear Technology that delivers up to 2A of continuous output current to outputs as low as 0.6V. Synchronous rectification delivers efficiencies as high as 95 per cent, while Burst Mode operation requires only 3.5µA of no-load quiescent current.
EMKA Protector IP65 vandal-resistant swinghandles have been designed specifically for installations on street furniture or cabinets in isolated areas where there is high risk of spurious attacks. EMKA has now introduced an electronic version of the range.
The Atmel SAMA5D3 Xplained evaluation kit is now available from Mouser. The kit is a low-cost prototyping board for the Atmel SAMA5D3 series of processors based on the ARM Cortex-A5 processor core. The board supports an external LCD interface, Gigabit Ethernet and Arduino-R3 expansion headers.
The 2014 version of Orthomodel software for the design of custom orthotic insoles is now available from Delcam. The release includes improvements to the user interface to improve workflow and reduce design times, enhancements to pad design and placement, a more sophisticated re-ordering process and faster and more reliable import of scan data.
The E-Spool from Igus has been designed to guide multiple cables within confined spaces. The product is suitable for a number of fields of application, including process cranes, mobile crane trucks, sorting plants or stage applications. The E-Spool is an alternative to the classic cable drum, accommodating power, data, air and media together in one system.
Matrox Imaging has scheduled another round of classroom training on the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) processing tools and the MIL/MIL-Lite environment. The session will be held on 16–20 June 2014 at the company’s headquarters in Montreal, Canada, and registration before 16 May qualifies for a 20 per cent saving on tuition.
Seaward has launched a user-friendly app designed to help PAT professionals carry out earth continuity testing efficiently and accurately.
Using polymer infrared window technology, which is shatter and vibration proof, and does not degrade over time even in the presence of high UV, IRISS has developed its FlexIR electrical safety device for isophase buses.
