ELECTRONICS: Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corp. now stocks Stackpole Electronics’ RNCS series of passivated Nichrome chip resistors, a low-cost alternative for expensive and hard-to-find tantalum nitride chip resistors. Digi-Key is stocking the most commonly used values of this series in sizes 0603, 0805 and 1206 packaged on 1K reels. These products are also available in cut tape quantities. A smaller quantity can also be ordered for same-day shipment on a custom Digi-Reel®. The RNCS series employs a special manufacturing process to ensure high precision, ultra-stable performance and long life in the harshest environments. In moisture comparison testing, the lead-free and RoHS-compliant RNCS series outperformed Nichrome chip resistors and demonstrated the anti-corrosive claims characterized by tantalum nitride resistor products.
Sensor deployment in automated factories should be done slowly and conservatively, otherwise engineers may face the loss of hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars, an Internet of Things expert will tell attendees at the upcoming Design & Manufacturing Show in Minneapolis.
