Measure Temperature, Velocity & Pressure
Developed by Advanced Thermal Solutions (ATS) (Norwood, MA), the
iQ-200 is a laboratory-grade instrument that simultaneously captures thermal data from up to 12 thermocouples, which can be J, K, T, and E types.
■ Surface area temperature measurements from -40° to 750°C.
■ 16 hot wire anemometer ports to measure air temperature using
ATS single-sensor technology.
■ 4 additional ports that support differential or absolute pressure
transducers to capture air pressure drop data.
■ Preloaded IQstage data acquisition software.
New from Mecmesin
(England), the Helixa precision torque tester has been
designed for achieving precise
alignment when using torque
sensors. Features include:
■ A choice of intelligent
■ Measurement from 6 Nm
down to a few mNm.
■ Mecmesin’s Emperor
control and acquisition
■ Breakaway torque
in rotary control
■ A counterbalancing
can be used to
remove axial forces
due to the torque cell and fixturing.
High Sensitivities for
Red & Green Light
First Sensor's (Westlake Village,
CA) Series 8r silicon avalanche
photodiodes (APDs) have high
sensitivities in the red and green
wavelength range. The new photodiodes are suitable for applications
that demand fast rise times and
low capacitance. Features include:
■ A flat gain curve where the
internal amplification rises
slowly with the applied reverse
■ An SMD package or hermetically sealed TO housing.
Socket Probe Adapter
Ironwood Electronics' (Eagan, MN) PB-BGA133A-Z-01 Socket Probe Adapter allows
high-speed testing of BGA device, while accessing the signals using testers via header pins.
■ A short trace length for maximum speed.
■ Blind and buried design via PCB design technology.
■ A design to interface with 0.5 mm pitch Fine pitch Ball Grid Array (FBGA) packages.
■ A PCB to deliver all data, address, control, and clock signals to header pins on
2.54 mm centers.
■ A pin self inductance of 0.15 nH and mutual inductance of 0.025 nH.
■ Capacitance to ground of 0.01 pF.
■ A current capacity of 2 A per pin.
High-Voltage Reed Switch
(West Wareham, MA) has
announced the world’s
smallest high voltage
1A35/1 miniature reed
switch. The switch has flat
surface mount leads, that enable paddle orientation. Features include:
■ A maximum glass length of 10. 5 mm and an
overall lead length of 34. 5 mm
■ An operating sensitivity range from 20 to 35 Ampere-turns (AT).
■ A switching voltage of up to 1,000 V.
■ An operational temperature range from -40° to 125°C.
