Brushless DC-Servomotors with Ø 16 mm

Brushless DC-Servomotors with Ø 16 mm

The new 1660 ... BHx series sets new standards: with respect to dimensions and weight, it delivers high speed and power values with low vibration and heat development, something inconceivable until recently. This drive series is thereby predestined for handpieces with high power requirements in applications with limited installation space.

The BHx series made by FAULHABER are new high power slotless brushless motors in 16 mm diameter based on a 2-pole technology. Through their robust, compact design and outstanding performance data, the motors of this new product family are particularly...

Constant Force Spring Increases Carbon Brush Life and More

Constant Force Spring Increases Carbon Brush Life and More

Ming Tai Industrial Co., a total solution of steel strip spring, has developed a wide range of Constant Force Springs, which can be widely used in rail vehicles and wind power turbine.
In rail vehicle, constant force springs designed for carbon brushes can be applied to alternators; auxiliary motor, blower motor, traction motor, slip ring and earth return current units. In wind power turbine, it can be applied to grounding system, motor commutator as well. 
Constant force springs ensure that the carbon brush works consistently by dependably exerting constant pressure to increase...

GO. A breath of fresh air in power electronics

GO. A breath of fresh air in power electronics

A fast measurement speed, achieved within tight cost and size constraints while integrating the primary conductor in SO packages without compromising the necessary insulation, is often as critical as the other high performances for current measurement in motor-drive applications.

A unique sensor with an integrated primary conductor achieves optimum temperature accuracy, measuring from -40 to +125 °C in a surface mounted SO8 or SO16 package. 
  
• 10-30 A nominal current
• Better than 1.3 % accuracy @ +25°C 
• Differential Hall...

Ultra-Fast High Resolution Thermal Imaging

Ultra-Fast High Resolution Thermal Imaging

The FLIR X6900sc is an extraordinarily fast, highly sensitive MWIR camera designed for scientists, researchers, and engineers. Capturing 640 x 512 images at 1000 frames per second, makes the FLIR X6900sc the world’s fastest full-resolution, commercially-available thermal camera. On-camera streaming and digital recording enables saving up to 26,000 frames of full resolution data to on-camera RAM with a guarantee of zero dropped frames.

Whether measuring temperatures on fast moving objects or characterizing the thermal transient of objects as they heat up, the...

RTS - Reflowable Thermal Switch

RTS - Reflowable Thermal Switch

SCHURTER introduces its new RTS, a particularly compact overtemperature protection device using advanced SMD technology. It is suited for the highest demands of protection in power semiconductors.

RTS stands for "Reflowable Thermal Switch". It was developed to protect highly integrated power semiconductors like MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, Triacs, SCRs, etc. from overheating. Before mechanical activation, the RTS can be mounted using conventional reflow soldering techniques with temperature profiles up to 260 °C.

IDS NXT: Extended product range and updated firmware

IDS NXT: Extended product range and updated firmware

IDS adds a new model to its family of vision app-based industrial cameras. IDS NXT vegas with 1.3 MP CMOS colour sensor, liquid lens with autofocus, ToF sensor for distance measurement and integrated lighting will be available from the end of April. Plus: updates for firmware and cockpit.

What makes IDS NXT so special?

1. The freely programmable platform is not restricted to specific tasks. Users can change and set up their preferred vision tasks in a very short time. This eliminates the need to switch devices.

2. The image processing engine of devices like...
