Track Power Usage
NK Technologies' (San Jose, CA)
APN Series Power Monitoring
Sensor measures 3 phases of current and
voltage, and computes 14 values to track
power usage in the RS485 Modbus RTU
format. The monitor uses current transformers
to measure the amps. Features include:
■ Line voltage connection (600 VAC) direct to the transducer.
■ The ability to accept standard 5 A current transformer inputs
or sensors producing 333 mVAC proportional to the
AC current of the circuit.
■ A primary circuit voltage that is connected directly to the
monitor for 600 VAC or lower.
Improve Power Density
GE’s Critical Power business (Dallas, TX) has introduced its new
QBVE060A0S10R4 625-W and the QBVS050A0B 600-W, quarter-brick bus
converters. These new modules are part of the company’s Barracuda product series of fully regulated DC/DC power devices. Features include:
■ Support for intermediate bus applications where
multiple low voltages are generated using
point of load converters.
■ An operating DC input range from
45- to 56-V, with 10. 4 VDC power
(625 W) and a 52- to 60-VDC input
range, delivering 12 V of DC power
■ The ability to be paralleled in sets of
3 for higher power applications.
Hirose (Simi Valley, CA) now offers a hybrid, board-to-FPC, small form factor connector capable of delivering nearly three
times the power of similar-sized conventional connectors. The 4-position BM22 Series connector is an ideal choice for design
engineers who need to optimize power transmissions while minimizing their PCB footprint. Features include:
■ Contact resistance that is suppressed and temperature rise with 4 A of current is < 30°C.
■ A self-aligning range of 0.3 mm.
