These devices are designed for full-switching power factor correction in motor drive applications in the 3-6kW power range. The FPDB20PH60 (600V/20A), FPDB30PH60 (600V/30A), and FPDB50PH60 (600V/50A) all integrate two fast-recovery diodes, two freewheeling diodes, two IGBTs, a gate-driver IC, a shunt resistor and a thermistor into one package measuring 44 x 26.8 mm. They are half the size of other devices, and use 40 kHz-switching operation for less power loss, typically providing 99 percent power factor. They have under-voltage and over-current protection through integrated gate-driving IC, and offer an isolation voltage rating of 2,500 Vrms/min.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
