TDK Corporation announces Convection Cooled 600W Programmable Power Supplies Are Certified to Medical and Industrial Standards

February 6th, 2019

 

TDK Corporation (TSE 6762) announces the introduction of the TDK-Lambda GXE600 programmable AC-DC power supplies.  The convection cooled 600W rated series is certified to the medical IEC 60601-1 and industrial IEC 60950-1 and IEC 62368-1 standards. The GXE600 is suitable for medical, industrial, test and measurement applications requiring wide-range output voltage and current programming, with sensitivity to noise from cooling fans.

The GXE600 is available with a nominal 24V or 48V output and can be programmed, using the RS-485 interface (Modbus RTU protocol) or an external 0 – 6V analog signal, for constant voltage and constant current (CVCC) operation.  The programming range is 20% to 120% for the voltage and 20% to 100% for the current.  In addition, the parameters for fault programming (protection level and recovery characteristics) and the slew rate timing can be changed.  Remaining electrolytic capacitor life, operating hours and alarm history can be read through the RS-485 interface, aiding remote preventative maintenance.

C&K’s New KSC PF Switch is Compact, Water Resiliant and Potting Friendly

August 8th, 2018

The new KSC PF switch provides designers with a next-generation switch solution that is compact yet resilient to water ingression – and made to be potting friendly.

Features include:

  • Unique combination of a compact form factor (6.2 x 6.2 x 5.2mm)
  • IP67 sealed with life cycles up to 1,000,000
  • SMT soft actuator tactile switch with a potting friendly extended cage, which decreases potting level tolerance, enables faster production and increases quality. Potting is often necessary to ensure complete protection while a sealed switch is in use – but potting levels are typically difficult to control in production. In addition, the traditional method of using a flat switch top risks the possibility of potting moving inward and blocking the actuator. By incorporating an extended cage, this issue is avoided.
