Measuring only 2.00 x 4.00 x 1.10 inches, the single output CFM101S Series has a universal 90-264V ac input, and output voltages of 12, 15, 20, 24 or 48V dc. Units feature power factor correction (meets EN61000-3-2) and achieve efficiencies to 85 percent. Additional features are built in short circuit and over voltage protection along with convection cooled operation in ambient temperatures range from 0 to +40C.
Units are RoHS compliant and have UL, cUL and TUV safety certifications and meet the conducted EMI requirements CISPR/FCC Class B. Pricing is in the low $30’s in OEM quantities and are in full production with deliveries from stock in 6-8 weeks.

Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
