(Middletown, PA) has
announced compact monitoring relays for single-function
monitoring, making simple
more affordable. The new
EMD-BL (basic line) monitoring relays are available
with optional push-in technology for easier installation. Features include:
■ Availability for single-phase
current monitoring, single-phase voltage monitoring,
3-phase voltage monitoring, and phase monitoring.
■ A single function design.
■ A 17.55-mm-wide housing.
■ A retention force five times the IEC requirement.
Amphenol Industrial Global Operations (Sidney, NY) has
enhanced its AT Circular (ATC) thermoplastic connectors by incorporating Amphenol’s AT contact technology. These upgraded connectors
mate with a positive reverse bayonet retention system and can withstand current up to 13 A. Features include:
■ Availability in 3-, 5-, and 9-way receptacles.
■ Environmental sealing against moisture and contaminants.
■ Durability to 100 mating cycles.
■ High-quality copper alloy contacts.
High Power, UV LED
Innovations in Optics (Woburn, MA) has
introduced a full product line of LumiBright
UV LE Ultraviolet LED light engines. The versatile and powerful solid-state sources are ideal
for UV applications in life science, medical,
and industrial equipment. Specific applications
include epi-illumination for fluorescence imaging
in life science instrumentation, such as gel and
blot imagers, colony counters, and microplate
readers. Features include:
■ Patented non-imaging optics.
■ Single or multi-wavelength options.
■ Availability in spectral distribution ranging from 365 to 405 nm.
■ Operation from <1 to over 200 W.
Balluff (Florence, KY) has
announced a new generation of
data carriers with a memory of
up to 128 kBytes. These drives
work up to eight times as fast as
the standard ISO 15693, making
them the ideal choice for track-and-trace applications with high data volumes such as those used in assembly lines in the automotive industry.
■ FRAM technology design.
■ A high degree of protection (up to IP 68).
■ A high level of data security, even in difficult environments.
Heat Sinks Cool High
Advanced Thermal Solutions,
Inc. (ATS) (Norwood, MA) has
added to its series of Star LED
heat sinks designed for convection
cooling of high heat flux LEDs.
Each of the 32 heat sinks provides
heat transfer for LED cooling without
fans or blowers. Cooling performance
reaches more than 60 K (Δ
Ths-ambient) at 50 W of power dissipation,
depending on model. Features include:
■ Cooling fins that are arrayed in a
round, star-like cross section.
■ A flat base at one end that allows
secure, direct mounting of LEDs.
■ Integral threads on the base perimeter
for attachment of brackets and other hardware.
■ An inner thread on most models for attachment of LED lens
■ Availability in lengths from 25 to 1,000 mm (0.98 to 39.37 in).
■ A standard diameter of 45 mm (1.77 in).
■ A black anodized finish that provides corrosion resistance, electrical
insulation, and improved thermal performance.
■ RoHS compliance.
