Regulated AC-DC Converters
UltraVolt (Ronkonkoma, NY) has launched a line of
single output high-voltage modules, the ESP Series.
The new line of Electrostatic Precipitators AC-DC
high-voltage modules addresses the need for a nom-inal-performance, stand-alone HV module to power
electrostatic precipitators operating in air or oil in
higher reliability, 24/7 applications. Features include:
■ A combined 14 models that provide outputs of 8
kV/4 kV or 12 kV/16 kV at 10, 20, 30, or 50 W of
■ An input voltage of either 115 or 230 VAC.
■ Dual, high-voltage outputs to power the ionizer
■ A fault monitor with isolated relay contacts.
■ A fixed-frequency, low stored energy design.
Nanominiature Rectangular Connectors
TE Connectivity's (Harrisburg,
PA) DUALOBE connectors are
designed to withstand harsh
the military and
The nanominiature D-style
rectangular connectors are
available in both machined
aluminum and molded plastic shells for 1- and 2-row
connector housings. Features include:
■ Multiple termination methods, including wires, surface
mount, thru-hole, panel mount, and duckbill — wired
assemblies can be customized.
■ A design to meet MIL-DTL-83513, which has been
developed for micro-miniature connectors.
■ The ability to exceed the military spec for nanominiature
connectors, as well as M32139 requirements on tempera-
ture, durability, and electrical performance.
■ A DWV of 500 V at sea level and 150 V at 70,000 feet.
■ Up to 500 mates and demates.
■ A temperature range from - 200° to + 200°C.
■ A .025" pitch pin with standard position sizes of 5, 9, 15,
25, 37, 51, and 65.
HMS Industrial Networks (Sweden) has launched a range of CAN repeat-
ers under the IXXAT brand. These products enable coupling of 2 or more
CAN network segments, provide them with galvanic isolation, and eliminate
the effects of EMI (electromagnetic interference). Features include:
■ The ability to use extended CAN
topologies, including tree or star
■ Integrated galvanic isolation
that provides built-in protec-
tion against over voltage.
■ A built-in CAN-bus choke
that provides protection
against signal peaks.
■ An anti-noise circuit that
helps eliminate effects of
EMI like heavy noise on the
20 KV/10 KA A/C line surge suppressors that protect designs from catastrophic
failures caused by over-voltage surges. The SS20 Series is designed
to be used in tandem with LED drivers and fluorescent
ballasts to provide an added level of protection against
harmful power transients in dry, damp, and wet
environments. Features include:
■ An integrated thermal protection device
per UL1449 (Type 4).
■ An operating temperature range
from -40° to +85°C.
■ An LED indicator and standard 1/2"
NPT threads for installation.
■ Protection from surges up to 20 KV/10 KA.
Molex (Lisle, IL) has released a new
Ethernet version of its Brad HarshIO compact 30
mm modules. Designed to provide industrial fieldbus connectivity for PROFINET, the new HarshIO
modules offer an IP67-rated, small form-factor for
high-density machine I/O connections. The modules are available in fixed and user configurable
I/O versions where the PROFINET controller can
configure (via GSD file) each port as an input,
output (up to 0.5 A) or universal digital channel.
■ An integrated 2-port switch with 100 Mbps.
■ A flexible, 8-port design that supports high
density I/O points.
■ Built-in protection to help prevent short circuit
and current overload.
■ Diagnostic LEDs for visual feedback on network,
power and I/O status.
