B&K Precision (Yorba Linda, CA) has expanded its DC system power supply offerings with
the introduction of the model 9115 multi-range programmable DC power source. The 9115
can deliver up to 1,200 W in multiple combinations of voltage up to 80 V and current up to
60 A. With a high-density, compact 1U form factor and standard 19" rack-mountable design,
this DC power supply is suitable for benchtop or ATE system applications. Features include:
■ A multi-ranging capability that automatically recalculates voltage and current limits.
■ Wide voltage and current operating ranges without forfeiting high output power.
■ A high resolution, 1 mV/1 mA VFD display, independent voltage and current control knobs, cursors, and a numerical keypad for direct data entry.
■ Internal memory storage to save and recall up to 100 different instrument settings.
■ Adjustable voltage rise and fall times, sequence (list mode) programming, and remote sense.
Touchless Magnetic Angle Sensors
Novotechnik's (Southborough, MA) Vert-X 31E Series of
programmable rotary angle sensors are touchless sensors
with a permanent magnet that can be secured to a rotating
shaft, so that there is no direct mechanical linkage between
the shaft and the measuring system. Features include:
■ A 31 mm profile.
■ A 0° to 360° measurement range.
■ A resolution to 14-bit.
■ Repeatability of 0.1° or better.
■ A maximum hysteresis of 0.1°.
■ The availability of 8 output options: 0.1 to 10 V, 0.5
to 4. 5 V, 4 to 20 mA, 10 to 90% of power supply, SSI,
PWM, incremental, and SPI.
Balluff (Florence, KY) SteelFace sensors are designed and built tough to survive abusive
applications. For applications that require something more compact than a tubular sen-
sor, the 1-piece stainless steel housing offers a robust operating face for demanding appli-
cations. Features include:
■A 5 mm operating distance (flush).
■ A weld slag resistant W51coating (patent pending).
■A high switching frequency.
■A round corner housing.
Specialties (Hampton, VA) now offers a robust, DC-response accelerometer that operates in temperatures from -55° to +170°C. The sensor comes in a hermetically-sealed anodized aluminum housing with
an epoxy seal rated to IP65. Features include:
■ An amplified output.
■ Critical dampening to a -80 dB/decade response attenuation.
■ A dynamic range from ± 2 to ±200 g.
■ Integral strain relief.
■ An excitation voltage range from 8 to 18 VDC.
■ An excitation current less than 5 mA.
