Boosting Small Controller Performance In order to increase controller scalability while enhancing user functionality and flexibility, Beckhoff Automation (Savage,
MN) has introduced
the new CX9020 Embedded PC. The CX9020 is suitable for a wide
range of PLC and motion control applications in small and medium sized
machines, systems or buildings. Features include:
A DIN rail mounted, fanless design.
A powerful 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor.
The integration of a CPU, numerous connectivity solutions and optional
interfaces, a power supply, and a direct I/O interface for Beckhoff I/O systems.
2 microSD card slots that provide the option for larger storage capacity
on the device.
1 GB of internal DDR3 RAM memory.
2 switched Ethernet 10/100 Mbit/s RJ 45 interfaces, 4 USB- 2.0 interfaces,
and a DVI-D interface.
The ability to automatically detect the directly-connected Bus Terminal
I/O or EtherCAT Terminal I/O and switch to the respective mode.
The Schaffner Group (Edison, NJ) has enhanced its family of IEC
Lock power cords with
Japanese PSE approvals
for the existing
the new IL19
family for currents up to 16 A.
The power cord families have
a patented locking system that
needs no change of existing
IEC inlets or IEC inlet filters and locks without additional fixture
in every standardized IEC inlet. Features include:
The ability to fit to all appliance couplers type C20 or to
Schaffner IEC inlet filters with type C20 inlet.
A locking system that can handle tensile forces up to 200 N.
RoHS and REACH compliance.
Precision High-Voltage Amplifiers UltraVolt (Ronkonkoma, NY) has announced the expansion of its popular line of preci- sion high-voltage amplifiers - the HVA Series - capable of operating in DC, reversible, and amplifier modes. HVA units operate a preci- sion filter/divider and linear HV switch to
produce the high-voltage amplifier. The HVA
Series can source and sink current linearly
through 0 V with low ripple and low noise
over the entire output range. Features include:
A high-resolution, high-voltage DC to full
scale waveform capability.
Greater than 500 Hz+ output depending
A fast slew rate of 40 V/µs.
A 25 ppm temperature coefficient standard,
15 ppm optional.
Constant voltage/constant current auto
LED Lighting Modules Elk Industries (Melbourne, FL) has released a line of LED lighting modules with efficiencies of over 200 Lumens per watt of optical output, in a full spectrum (cool white, warm white) and various colors. Features include: A size of 2 x < 4 x <0.5”. An input power of 1.6 W. A 12 V, DC regulated input. A lifetime rated from 5 to 10 years of continuous use.
Applicability in general purpose lighting, indirect lighting, walkway lighting,
and panel lighting.
