Compatible with single-phase power supplies in industrial equipment, information technology equipment and medical devices, the 5120 Filtered Power Entry Module is used in everything from dental equipment to networking routers to fitness equipment and LCD TVs. The series is dimensioned as a 1-stage filter for rated currents 1, 2, 4, 6, 10 and 15A, and has wide-band attenuation in a 100kHz-30MHz range, and a leakage current of &0.5 mA for standard, and &5 A for medical filters. They can mount with traditional screw and nuts or rivets with a front or rear side mounting version, or via pre-formed, threaded holes for M3 screws on a special rear side mounting version. The modules' metal flanges shield the panel opening. The series meets IEC/EN 60950 and UL 1950, and IEC/EN 60601 and UL 544 requirements.
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 radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
