The MM Series of dc-dc converters are for direct PCB mounting and is available in four package sizes with output voltages from 300V up to 15 kV, at 1.5 or 2.5W. Reversible modules are available up to 15 kV, with output power of 1.5W. All models feature standard input voltages of 9, 12, or 24V dc, and input currents less than 1A at full output. Other input voltages and multiple outputs can be custom-ordered. The series features built-in arc protection, and all models can be used with an external feedback loop to provide regulated outputs.

Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
