Convection-cooled 600W programmable power supplies

TDK-Lambda GXE600 programmable AC-DC power supply convection-cooled 600W rated
series is certified to the medical IEC 60601-1 and industrial IEC 60950-1 and IEC 62368-1 standards. It is suitable for 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 operation. The programming range is 20% to 120% for the voltage and 20% to 100% for the current.


Broadband amplifier

Model SBB-0524034318-KFKF-E8 is a broadband amplifier with a typical small signal gain of 43
dB, a nominal P1dB of +18 dBm, and a typical noise figure of 5 dB across the frequency range of 0.5 to 40 GHz. The DC power requirement for the amplifier is +12 VDC/650 mA. The use of a heat sink is advised to assist in cooling the device. The RF connectors are female K connectors. Other port configurations, such as male K connectors for either input or output port, are also available under different model numbers. Sage Millimeter

Image-based laser sensor

Keyence Corporation of America has released the IX Series, a new image-based laser sensor.
By combining a camera with a laser, users can now determine part position prior to performing laser inspection, reducing hardware and installation costs. The IX Series will retain the quick-setup simplicity for which Keyence products have become known. The IX Series is designed to tackle four types of inspection situations: Unrepeatable target locations, reference height checks, low-contrast targets, and inspections of multiple areas at once. Because the IX Series is laser-based, low-contrast inspections such as height of a black component on a black background are easily determined. Keyence Corporation

3.75 in. stroke linear voice coil motor

The LVCM-051-127-01 Linear Voice Coil Motor by Moticont has a stroke length of 3.75 in. (95.3
mm). This 2.00 in. (50.8 mm) diameter linear motor has a high force-to-size ratio of 5 lb (22.2 N) and a peak force of 15.8 lbs. (70.3 N) at 10% duty cycle. The motor features two 10-32 UNC-2B threaded mounting holes in the housing and two 10-32 UNC-2B threaded mounting holes in the coil end for easy integration into new and existing applications. A complete plug-and-play system including an encoder and servo controller is also available. Moticont

Clamshell spring pin socket for SAW Filter

The CBT-LGA-5017 LGA socket by Ironwood Electronics addresses high-performance
requirements for custom pitch devices. The contactor is a stamped spring pin with 14.5-gram actuation force per pin and cycle life of 100,000 insertions. The self-inductance of the contactor is 0.98 nH, insertion loss of < 1 dB at 31.7 GHz and capacitance 0.067pF. The current capacity of each contactor is 4 amps. Socket temperature range is -55C to +180C. The socket also features an IC guide for precise LGA edge alignment.

Relay-controlled programmable attenuators

Fairview Microwave’s line of relay-controlled programmable attenuators consists of six models
that cover broad frequency bands from DC to 2000 MHz with attenuation levels ranging from 0 to 127 dB. These attenuator designs have 6 to 8 relay bits with attenuation steps ranging from 0.25 dB to 64 dB for precise tuning capability, depending on the model. Typical performance includes low insertion loss ranging from 0.8 to 3.5 dB, input power up to 1-watt CW and attenuation accuracy of  +/- 0.5 dB. Models are offered in 50- and 75-Ohm configurations.

6 & 10 watt chassis-mount DC/DC converter modules

Traco Power has added the TMDC 06 and TMDC 10 series of 6- and 10-watt products to its
TMDC family of industrial DC/DC converter modules. These DC/DC converter modules are fully encapsulated with terminal strip connections and equipped with integrated filters which limit conducted and radiated emissions and increase the modules EMC immunity. Each family consists of 14 modules offering either 9-36 or 18-75 VDC input ranges and outputs of 5 / 12 / 15 / 24 / ±12 / ±15 / ±24 VDC with high efficiency operation up to 86%.

Signal and spectrum analyzer families

Rohde & Schwarz has launched two new signal and spectrum analyzer families, with different
frequency models covering up to 44 GHz. The R&S FSV3000 is designed to help users set up complex measurements simply and quickly, suitable for labs and production lines. It provides up to 200 MHz analysis bandwidth—enough to capture and analyze, for example, two 5G NR carriers at once. The R&S FSVA3000, has up to 400 MHz analysis bandwidth, and a high dynamic range and a phase noise of -120 dBc/Hz.
