This new RoHS-compliant, 5W series is designed for tight quarters, with supplies measuring 2 x 1 x 0.6 inches. They are rated for operation at 100 percent load from 0 to 50C ambient, accept a universal input voltage (85 to 264 V ac or 100 to 340 V dc) and offer efficiencies of up to 77 percent in the 24V model. Five separate single output models provide an output voltage range from 3.3 V to 24 V. They meet UL/cUL/TUV/CE/CB safety approvals, and offer a 3,000 Vac input-to-output isolation, and short-circuit, over-voltage, over-current and over-temperature protections.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
