Transducers USA (Elk Grove,
IL) has announced the release
of the new sounder, that
produces a high dB output
in a package the size of a
matchbook. The sound level
of Transducers USA’s new
model TRPS-07 is ideal for a
product whose sound output
level will override any other
sounds that may be within its
area. Features include:
A sound output level of 120 dB 10 cm.
A package measuring 1.8” x 1.5” x 1.0”.
An operating voltage of 12 VDC at 130 mA.
The ability to produce sound at a frequency of 2,500 Hz ±500 Hz.
Increased Memory Density Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) has announced an expansion of its 8-bit PIC16F178X enhanced Mid-Range core microcontroller (MCU) family. The new MCUs feature extreme low-power technology for active and sleep currents, extending battery life and reducing standby current consumption. Other features include: Increased Flash memory densities. On-chip 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs). 16-bit PWMs. 8-bit and 5-bit Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs). Operational amplifiers. High-speed comparators with 50 ns response time. EUSART (including LIN), I2C, and SPI interface peripherals. www.microchip.com ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■
Miniature Connector for Aeronautics
An alternative to the D-subminiature connector, the new micro-
Comp Quicklatch from Souriau (York, PA) is a 100% composite
larly for use on
cial aircraft. It is
32% smaller and
45% lighter than
a D-sub and can save as much as the equivalent of the weight of one
passenger on modern civil aircraft. Features include:
Compatibility with Gigabit Ethernet networks.
A nickel coating to ensure protection against lightning and electromagnetic interference.
The ability to support up to 4 100 Mbps Ethernet lines.
An easy connection: no screws and no risk of damaging the contacts.
Illuminated Pushbutton Switch
E-Switch (Minneapolis, MN) has announced an RGB color option
for the ULP series LED illuminated pushbutton switch. This switch
is available with either SPDT or DPDT circuit options and either
momentary or latching options. Features include:
Contact ratings of 0.5
mA, 25 VDC (silver),
and 0.4 VA max 28V
(AC or DC) (gold).
tance of 50 m
(silver) and 100
