Massive weight reduction of the high current filters FMER SOL and FMCC SOL

Massive weight reduction of the high current filters FMER SOL and FMCC SOL

SCHURTER reduces the weight of the high current filters FMER SOL and FMCC SOL. The successful AC and DC filter series with currents up to 2500 A have big housings and heavy weights. The product weight was significantly reduced with an optimized potting compound. In the FMER SOL series, filters with a rated current higher than 250 A are able to benefit from this weight reduction, while in the FMCC SOL series all variants do.

The FMER SOL filters are designed for rated currents from 25 A to 2300 A at 55 °C ambient temperature, and voltages up to 1200 VDC. The filter...

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Asset and component traceability, from production to maintenance and even spare part service contracts, becomes easier because more information can be printed in a legible way on durable labels. This can also result in better compliance with legal requirements such as UL certification, safety standards and environmental responsibilities. 

Brady’s asset and component labels can be created with the highest flexibility.
This includes:
-    small prints of text in every language, symbols and special characters
-    improved serialisation...

More Power in the Hand

More Power in the Hand

The new 2668 … CR DC motor from FAULHABER offers considerably more power than comparable drives, and is the most powerful copper-graphite commutated DC-micromotor in its size class on the market. Thanks to a bigger NdFeB magnet and a high copper content in the winding, it supplies a rated torque of 70 mNm. As a result, it weighs just 189 g with a diameter of 26 mm. Furthermore, it reaches full power extremely quickly with its high pulse torque. The 2668 … CR is thus especially well suited for professional high-performance tools such as pruning shears...

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 Temperature Endoscope

High Temperature Endoscope

Resolve Optics has supplied several high temperature Short Wavelength Infrared (SWIR) endoscopic viewing systems to enable inspection of the blades in a gas turbine while in operation. To enable inspection during gas turbine operation required that the SWIR endoscope had to operate up to 950° C at the tip with 150PSI pressure and be able to withstand severe vibration. To overcome the negative effects of high temperature and pressure – Resolve Optics created a novel design which allowed introduction of cool air at high pressure at the mid-section of the endoscope....
