SMD Solid-state Fuse for the Most Demanding Applications

SMD Solid-state Fuse for the Most Demanding Applications

SCHURTER's new High Current Fuse, HCF, is an extremely robust SMD fuse, designed using solid-state / thin-film technology. The HCF is especially suited for use in particularly harsh applications, where the reliable interrupt of high currents is critical.

SCHURTER's experience, acquired from the development of solid-state fuses for the space industry, and the cooperation with ESA, have led to the development of the HCF. The new HCF has a similar structure as the two ESA-certified types SCHURTER MGA-S and HCSF. Fuses used in Space applications meet the...

High-Speed High Sensitivity Thermal Camera

High-Speed High Sensitivity Thermal Camera

Precise camera synchronization and triggering make FLIR Systems A6700sc series thermal camera ideal for high-speed, high sensitivity applications. Working in snapshot mode the FLIR A6700sc is able to register all pixels from a thermal event simultaneously.

This is particularly important when monitoring fast moving objects where a standard thermal imaging camera would suffer from image blur. Routinely achieving a high thermal sensitivity of <20 mK, the FLIR A6700sc is able to capture the finest image details and temperature difference information.

Patented retention system for pressure hoses

Patented retention system for pressure hoses

The energy contained within a pressure hose, in case of disconnection from the fitting, can be very dangerous to anyone or anything in its vicinity.

The patented system STOPFLEX of OP srl, has been designed to arrest the trajectory of the flexible hose, thus avoiding that the energy contained inside may trigger a frightening "whip effect".

The cable secures the hose to the plant protecting both the operators and components.

The bend, equipped with a rubber gasket, remains perfectly secured, simultaneously allowing the hose to swell according...
