ELECTRONICS:CUI Inc’s power division, V-Infinity, announces an extension of its high efficiency, high density VMS line with the 365 watt VMS-365 series. These units have an industry leading power density of 19 W/ in³ and come in an open frame package measuring 3.00 x 5.00 x 1.40 inch. The VMS-365 can be used in a wide variety of medical and telecom applications, meeting EN60601-1 & ITE EN60950-1 safety standards. With typical efficiency above 90 percent, this series is ideal for applications where power consumption is a critical consideration.
The VMS-365 series offers universal input (90-264V ac) and single output voltages of 12, 24, and 48V dc. This model outputs 365W with 400 LFM cooling and 200W under convection cooling conditions. It has a built-in active PFC function and a 12V auxiliary fan output with 5V stand by. The series can operate from -20 to 50C at full load, derating linearly to 50 percent load at 70C. Protections built-in to the VMS-365 include over-temperature, over current and over-voltage.
The VMS-365 series is available immediately through Digi-Key with prices starting at $230 per unit. Please contact CUI for OEM pricing.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
