First rewireable IEC connector with V-Lock

The IEC connector 4783 from SCHURTER is the first of its kind: for the first time it combines a reconnectable C13 connector with the proven V-Lock cord retention system. Available in black, white and grey for better differentiation - e.g. in 3-phase systems. Ideal for small series builds Reconnectable appliance sockets are particularly suitable for small series builds. With these inlets you are free to choose the cable length and country-specific plugs.

Rugged monitors and panel PCs for harsh environments

Review Display Systems (RDS) are now supporting Elgens rugged monitor and panel PC solutions. Featuring a wide range of sizes, integrated PCap touchscreens and a -40°C to +80°C operating temperature range, RDS can now supply the ideal monitor solution for in-vehicle, marine, aerospace, construction, and industrial applications.

Optical bonding of e-paper displays

Optical bonding enables the connection of touch sensor, cover glass and display into one unit by means of different technologies and processes. Just as with optical bonding of TFT LC displays, this finishing process can also be applied to e-paper displays.

650V Silicon Carbide Schottky Diodes

Featuring zero forward current low forward voltage drop (VF), low leakage current (IR), and 4A to 20A current rating. These Schottky diodes are available in standard TO-247-3 and TO-252-2 package sizes.

Intelligent solution for Edge networks from RDS and AAEON

Review Display Systems (RDS) has announced the availability of the SRG-3352C Compact IoT Gateway System from AAEON. The ARM powered SRG-3352C enables reliable, cost effective gateway operations with expandability and wireless communication support, designed to facilitate edge networks.

Solutions for high EMC requirements

Touch panel products for the European market must comply with European directives and be CE certified. An essential requirement is that these products meet the requirements for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). But which are these? Other electrical devices in the immediate vicinity of a touch panel must not affect the operation of this device. The touch panel must therefore have high immunity to interference. Conversely, the panel must not interfere with other products, so its own emissions must be low.

650V Silicon Carbide Schottky Diodes

Featuring zero forward current low forward voltage drop (VF), low leakage current (IR), and 4A to 20A current rating. These Schottky diodes are available in standard TO-247-3 and TO-252-2 package sizes.

Artesyn 650 Watt Open Frame Medical AC-DC Power Supplies

Capable of delivering 650 W with forced-air cooling (750 W peak) or 400 W with natural convection, the CNS650-M series follows the industry standard 4X6 inch form factor. It is available in U-channel, open-frame, enclosed and enclosed end-fan options. The series incorporates 2XMOPP and is Type BF ready, while digital communication offers control and monitoring functions.

Power Integrations BridgeSwitch Motor Drivers

Driving single and three-phase brushless DC motors up to 400 W and 98% efficiency without heatsinks, BridgeSwitch ICs integrate two high-voltage N-channel power FREDFETs with low and high-side self-supplied drivers in a small-outline package - eliminating external auxiliary power supplies. The MCU-agnostic devices support sinusoidal, trapezoidal, and sensorless field-oriented control implementations. BridgeSwitch hardware-based system protection enhances safety, reliability and accelerates time-to-market.

Choosing the Right Display for Industrial Applications

Attracted by cost savings and ready availability, companies are increasingly adopting consumer grade products within industrial embedded systems. However, those choosing this route take on additional risk, encountering issues of longevity, reliability, and maintainability that can push up the total cost of ownership. Display specialist Pacer explores the options.
