Megger has launched a 15kV diagnostic insulation resistance tester developed specifically to meet the needs of users in the industrial and OEM sectors. The MIT1525 provides insulation resistance measurement up to 30TO with 6mA of noise rejection and offers a range of diagnostic tests including polarisation index (PI), dielectric absorption ratio (DAR), step voltage (SV), dielectric discharge (DD) and ramp testing.
Sandvik Coromant has announced that its CoroTurn SL cutting heads now feature CoroTurn HP (high-precision) nozzles that direct cutting fluid precisely where it is needed — at the exact interface between the tool and the workpiece. This is said to ensure CoroTurn SL users can be assured of reliable chip breaking, which facilitates both good chip evacuation and extended tool life in back-boring operations.
The Senses 5300 series of wide-operating-temperature panel PCs is now available from Amplicon. Available in three LCD display size options — 10in, 12in and 15in — with five-wire resistive touchscreen, the series is said to be suitable for 99 per cent of SCADA/HMI applications.
Omega is offering the MPS11 series of analogue melting-point apparatus, which has been designed with both safety and ease of operation in mind, making it suitable for use in education. Supplied with a safe, spirit-filled, mercury-free thermometer, the low-toxic blue spirit will not pose a health hazard in the event of a breakage.
The SVERKER 900 protection relay and substation test system from Megger provides engineers with a range of tools that cover all major requirements for single- and three-phase testing in distribution substations, renewable power generation installations and industrial applications.
The readychain light rack system from igus has a frame thickness of only 40mm, and is only half the size of its original readychain rack, and so ideal for smaller applications.
CEDRAT has signed a licence agreement with CD-adapco. The agreement provides a licence of CD-adapco’s file formats to CEDRAT and will enable stronger coupling between Flux, CEDRAT’s electromagnetics code, and STAR-CCM, CD-adapco’s flow and thermal simulation code.
igus is offering a range of bearing products that are blue in colour for easier detection in the food and drink industry. The iglidur A350 polymer plain bearing material is FDA approved (Food and Drug Administration, US) and the igubal polymer material can also be recognised by metal detectors; both materials are manufactured completely from tribo-optimised plastic.
Jerry Manas, senior editor for Planview, has announced his latest book, The Resource Management and Capacity Planning Handbook: A Guide to Maximising the Value of Your Limited People Resources, which is intended to help organisations to conquer the complexities of resource and demand management with benchmarks, guidelines and tools for maximising the value of their people.
EMKA has added the BioLock with integral fingerprint reader to its electronic locking and monitoring range. The BioLock is used to provide a high level of security for the protection of valuable data in compliance with PCI, SOX, SSAE 16 and HIPAA in support of EN 50600.
Megger has introduced an app designed to provide users with a set of software tools to help them carry out portable appliance testing (PAT) more easily and efficiently. The PAT Toolbox app is available in versions for both Apple iOS and Android devices.
TTI is now stocking capacitors for high-temperature automotive applications from Kemet. The devices are said to be ideal for automotive applications above 125°C and up to 200°C, electric and hydraulic steering systems, electronic braking systems, engine and transmission contro and stop/start micro hybrids.
Linear Technology has introduced the LT3668, a 400mA, 40V step-down switching regulator with dual tracking LDO outputs packaged in an MSOP-16E. The LT3668 offers a complete, robust power solution for applications that require the power supply of a sensor to tightly track the power supply of a measurement ASIC.
Mouser Electronics is now offering the AD9135 and AD9136 digital-to-analogue converters (DACs) from Analog Devices. The AD9135 is an 11-bit DAC, while the AD9136 is a 16-bit DAC. The devices offer a high dynamic range and a fast sampling rate of 2.8 Giga samples per second (Gsps).
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the microSD/micro-SIM combo socket from Molex. Providing substantial space savings while also reducing manufacturing, assembly and component costs, the Molex microSD/micro-SIM Combo Socket offers a low-profile and narrow-width stacked design that enables easy card access from one direction.
