UltraVolt Inc., a world-leading manufacturer of high-voltage power supplies, announced the addition of two parametric searches to its website that enable users to search for the characteristics they require and compare results quickly to find the precise modular or rack-mount high-voltage power supply or high-voltage test fixture for their application. The basic search includes only device type, output voltage, power, nominal output current, and input voltage in the parameters. The advanced parametric search, in addition to the basic search options, includes drop-down menus for derated input, standard package type, standard footprint, and standard volume. The advanced search also includes a table of 18 options and accessories, including options for shielding, mounting, heat sink, passive interface board, additional bias, connectors, and more.

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.
