has extended its RHINOTM
line to include ac/dc switch mode power supplies encapsulated in an
ultra-compact, low profile housing. The new PSE series is for space-limited
applications and can be easily screw-mounted to a panel or equipment chassis.
The power supplies can also be DIN-rail mounted using the optional DIN-rail
series features a universal ac input range of 85-264V and is available in
single- or dual-output models. Output voltage ranges include 5, 12, 15 and 24V
dc; and Â±12 and Â±15V dc. Single-output models provide a maximum output power
range from 15W up to 60W, while dual-output models provide 15 and 30W. Designed
with a double-insulated plastic resin housing, no external grounding is
required. Screw terminal blocks provide easy connection and the series is short
circuit and overload protected.
series encapsulated power supplies are RoHS compliant, UL and cUL listed.
Prices start at $49.50 for single-output models and $51.75 for dual outputs.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
