Ultra-miniature modular-switching power supplies are for applications such as telecommunications, embedded systems and controls, and process monitoring and control systems. Features include input ranges of 85-265V ac; voltage ranges from 3.3 to 24V dc; a fully encapsulated construction; and single, dual, and triple outputs. Catalog includes corporate information, product specifications, and selection guide.
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.
