ELECTRONICS: Tech9 Corp.’s 1A buck-boost dc to dc power converter accepts input ranging from 6 to 70V while output remains constant. The power converter can be ordered in 3V, 5V, 9V, 12V and 15V output models. Other outputs are available on request. These power converters are designed for use in mobile and portable devices in industrial, commercial, medical, military and process control as well as telephone applications. The new power converter offers + 2 percent output voltage tolerance with excellent line and load rejection characteristics (60DB typical). The units are short circuit proof. The power converters can be operated in ambient temperatures as high as 85C. Extended input range down to 4V is available. Extended temperature range is also available.
The company offers power converters with other voltage outputs down to 1.5V dc and other amperage ratings, including 0.5A, 1.5A and 3A and special orders. The power converters are available with or without enclosures, and the enclosures are available with or without flanges. The unit measures 2.13 x 3.27 x 1.21 inches. Add 1 inch for unit with flanges. Distributor/rep inquiries are invited.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
