its latest 2. 4 GHz
RF high-power amplifier,
the SST12CP12, which adds
support for the 256-QAM ultra-high data rate modulation. The SST12CP12 utilizes orthogonal frequen-cy-division multiplexing (OFDM) to correct severe
channel conditions without the need for equalization
filters. Features include:
■ A high linear output power of up to 23 dBm.
■ A dynamic EVM as low as 1.8%.
■ MCS8 40 MHz bandwidth modulation.
■ A spectrum mask compliance up to 28. 5 dBm for
802.11 b/g communication.
Potentiometer & Bipolar Signal Conditioners
AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA) has expanded its line of signal conditioners to include
potentiometer and bipolar signal conditioners to solve interface problems between PLCs
and analog input devices. Models are field-configurable and useful to eliminate ground
loops and interfacing sensors to PLC analog input modules. Features include:
■ A slim-line plastic housing.
■ An integral 35 mm DIN rail mounting adapter.
■ LED indication.
■ Removable screw terminal blocks for installation and wiring.
■ A 24 VAC/VDC potentiometer input to an isolated analog output signal conditioner.
■ A field-configurable module for 3-wire potentiometer/slidewire inputs.
■ Switch selectable, analog output options that range from 0 to 20 mA to 0 to 10 V.
PV Connector System
Phoenix Contact (Middletown, PA) has introduced
Sunclix, a DC plug and receptacle connector system for
photovoltaic (PV) applications. The connectors can be
assembled in the field or factory. Features include:
■ A 1-piece DC connector design.
■ Spring technology for quick assembly and termination.
■ Voltage of up to 1,500 V IEC using only 2 versions.
MicroPower Direct's (Stoughton, MA) MD100xE series provides 1 W of output power
in a miniature 7-pin SIP package. The single and dual output DC/DC converters are
specifically designed to provide the voltage conversion, miniature size, I/O isolation,
and economy required by a range of
space critical board level applications. Features include:
■ 5, 12, 15, and 24 VDC
■ Single and dual out-
puts of 5, 12, 15, 24,
± 5, ±12, or ± 15 VDC.
■ Continuous short circuit
■ An efficiency as high as 82%.
■ An input/output isolation of
■ An MTBF (per MIL HDBK
217F) > 3. 5 Mhours.
DC Current Signal Splitters
Omega's (Stamford, CT) new series of DC current
signal splitters features inputs that have zero and
span adjustments. Typical applications include
isolation, output splitting, output device separation, and redundancy — or a combination of
these. Features include:
■ One input ( 4 to 20 mA) to two outputs
( 4 to 20 mA) with full isolations.
■ An output test button for each channel.
■ Built-in loop power supplies for sink/source
I/O, split, convert, boost, and rescale process
■ The ability to interface a process signal with
multiple panel meters, PLCs, recorders,
data acquisition, DCS, and SCADA systems.
