Molex (Lisle, IL) has introduced the
ruggedized Imperium High-Voltage/
High-Current (HVHC) Connector System, a solution that delivers
reliable performance in extreme shock and vibration conditions found in
commercial vehicles. Features include:
■ Up to 1,000 V and 250 A per contact.
■ Availability in 8 and 11 mm diameter versions.
■ An integrated MX150 High-Voltage Interlock Loop (HVIL) crimp terminal.
■ A closed-loop 360° shield design.
■ Grounding tabs for EMI and RFI mitigation.
Sine Wave Inverter System
Absopulse Electronics' (Canada) CTP 10K Series of inverters employs
microprocessor controlled, field-proven technology to deliver 3-Phase
10,000 VA continuous output power with pure sine wave output voltage.
The rugged inverter systems are suitable for industrial applications where
a 10 kVA, 3-phase AC voltage solution is required. Features include:
■ 3-phase outputs of 380 or
400 Vrms (line-to-line).
voltages of 220 or
■ Operation from 48 V,
125 V, 250 VDC, or
custom DC input.
■ Up to 4 heavy-duty
modules in 9 U x 19"
x 16" rack-mount or
Compact Mid-Power LED
The low-profile rectangular shape of the new Synios E4014 from
Osram Opto Semiconductors (Germany) enables the light from
the LED to be injected into light guides. The LEDs are intended
primarily for visually enhancing white goods such as appliances,
and for lighting systems in vehicles and displays. Features include:
■ Color between 4,000 and 5,000 K.
■ A robust plastic package.
■ A uniform distribution of light, high efficiency, and flexibility.
■ A life of around 50,000 hours.
■ An ESD stability of 5 kV.
Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) has expanded its
8-bit PIC16F178X enhanced mid-range core microcontrol-ler (MCU) family. Low power consumption, in combination
with advanced analog and digital integration, make the
PIC16F178X MCUs suitable for LED and lighting applications, battery management, digital power supplies, and motor
control applications. Features include:
■ Increased Flash memory densities.
■ Intelligent analog and digital peripherals.
■ Active and sleep currents of 32 µA/MHz and 50 nA, respectively.
■ Self-sustaining smart control loops with minimal CPU intervention.
