Three-phase AC Power Source and Alternator Simulator

Highland Technology introduced the P900 3-phase AC power source and alternator simulator. It can simulate aircraft power busses, and PMA permanent-magnet alternators and drive FADEC shunt regulators. Each phase can output 0 to 160 VRMS at 200 VA and 120 Hz to 4 kHz, including applications requiring a 400 Hz or APU/wild power source. Outputs can be programmed as low-impedance voltage busses or alternators with controlled source impedances. Features include output measurements, waveform monitors, and fault simulation. Control interfaces are USB and Ethernet. Highland Technology

Non-Commutated Linear Actuator

Moticont has added another non-commutated linear actuator to its DDLM series of low-cost actuators. The DDLM-019-070-01 Linear Actuator can develop 10.1 oz (2.8 N) of continuous force and 32.1 oz (8.9 N) of peak force at 10% duty cycle. Having a stroke of 0.960 in. (24.4 mm), this clean, fully enclosed linear actuator, also referred to as an electric cylinder, is useful for use in critical medical applications. Measuring just 0.750 in. (19.1 mm) in. diameter and 2.750 in. (44.5 mm) long, this zero cogging, bi-directional actuator is easily integrated into new and existing applications. Moticont

Edge AI Starter Kit

Lanner Electronics collaborated with Intel to launch the Edge AI Starter Kit for industrial automation. Combining Lanner’s Edge AI Appliance with Intel Edge Insights for Industrial, the kit aims to deliver an all-in-one platform composed of a high-speed camera, Intel CPU- and VPU-accelerated computing hardware, and application-tailored software to accelerate time-to-market AI deployment at the industrial edge, such as vision inspection, predictive maintenance and operator monitoring. Lanner Edge AI Starter Kit for industrial is powered by the edge compute platform LEC-2290, integrated with 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU (codenamed “Coffee Lake-S”). Lanner Electronics

100 MHz oscilloscope

Saelig Company’s SDS1104X-U 4-channel 100MHz oscilloscope, a lower priced, economy version of the SDS1104X-E. Many excellent features have been retained, including the large 7" TFT-LCD display and ergonomic front panel design, while economies have been made by removing the optional MSO and function generator upgrade capabilities, a reduced time-base resolution and vertical resolution, eliminating web page and WiFi control, and using one 1GSa/s ADC not two 1GSa/s ADCs. The SDS1104X-U uses the latest generation of Siglent's Super-Phosphor technology, yielding waveform capture rates up to 100,000wfm/s (400,000wfm/s in sequence mode). Saelig

75 GHz Bandwidth RF Socket for 1280 I/O 0.25 pitch device

Ironwood Electronics’ 0.25 pitch socket uses a high-performance elastomer capable of 75 GHz operation at a low inductance for wide-temperature applications. The 1280 WLCSP socket is designed for a 10 x 8 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 75 GHz, with less than 1dB of insertion loss and a contact resistance of ~20 milliohms per pin. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and has a small footprint. This socket uses a bolt-on lid with an integrated compression mechanism. This socket can be used for hand test and temperature cycling as well as debugging application in development and device characterization. Ironwood Electronics

Anritsu Launches Portable 400G Network Tester

Anritsu released its battery-powered Network Master Pro MT1040A for 400G networks, with directly-mounted QFSP-DD optical modules. The tester also has a simultaneously-installable 10M-to-100G interface for access, metro, mobile fronthaul/backhaul, and data-center transmission quality tests, such as BER, throughput, frame loss, and latency measurements. Features include a GUI, a remote-control-over-network option, and auto-test functions. The portable 400G tester aids in commissioning and maintenance of 400G Ethernet networks. The MT1040A is presented as the smallest B5-size 400G Ethernet tester available, and offers added functions for efficient testing, installation, and maintenance of faster networks up to 400G speeds.
