(Japan) has developed
the XC9270/XC9271 series of
30 V, 2 A step-down DC-DC converters. With an input voltage of up
to 30V, input rating of 36V, peak voltage of 46V for 400 ms, and an operating ambient temperature range of -40°
to +105°C, this series is ideal for car
accessories and industrial equipment
applications. Features include:
■ An absolute maximum rating of 36 V,
and a peak voltage 46 V (400 ms).
■ A PFM control that increases
efficiency at light loads.
Electrical & Electronic
AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA) now offers AEGIS powerline fil-ters/surge protectors to protect single-phase electrical and electronic
equipment from surges and line noise that can cause misoperation and
damage. With multiple levels of surge protection, AEGIS series units
guard against surges and clean up line noise. Features include:
■ Premium filter and hybrid models.
■ LED status indicators.
■ A compact design with no replaceable parts.
■ Up to 75 dB of filtering and up to 60 kA of surge protection.
■ EMI filtering protection.
Thomas Research Products (Elgin, IL) has introduced two new
LED Drivers designed for use in hazardous location fixtures. The
new LED-HL series 25 and 40 W drivers are based on TRP's standard LED series models. Features include:
■ V5A cases and internal thermal protection.
■ A Type HL rating from UL, in addition to an IP66 rating for dry
and damp locations.
■ Availability in constant-current, dimming, and constant-voltage
■ A 100 to 277 V universal input voltage.
■ Black Magic Thermal Advantage plastic
■ Over-voltage, over-current,
and short circuit protection
VCC (Poway, CA) now provides rapid prototyping with its Flexfire Series of
flexible light pipes. The light pipes enable engineers to prove-out design concepts for indicator applications that require light to be extended from the board
to the desired surface via a series of bends and turns. Features include:
■ Optional lens configurations that can be IP67/NEMA 6P rated for harsh environment and industrial applications.
■ Standard fiber lengths ranging from 2" (50.8 mm) to 12" (304.8 mm).
■ A 160° viewing angle.
