The power supply is provided with a pc board protective coating to guard
against moisture, dust and other contaminants, making the CPFE500F
ideal for harsh, outdoor or dusty applications. Since there is no fan, the
CPFE500F series is equally suited to low-audible-noise applications.
These single output power supplies are available in 12V, 24V, 28V or 48VDC
output versions. Up to Â±20 percent output voltage adjustment is possible
enabling the CPFE500F to be used in a variety of customer-specific power
There is an extended temperature range of from -40 to +85C and lightning
surge capability of up to 6kV, the CPFE500F.
An efficiency of 85 percent insures heat dissipation is minimized. Operating
from a universal input of 90 to 265VAC with PFC, the outputs of these units can
be connected in either a series or parallel configuration with active
current-share as standard.
As an option, these units can be provided with an internal ORing diode for
redundant/fault-tolerant applications. A power-on signal, remote on/off,
remote-sense and auxiliary-output (12V/20mA) are included features.
The data can also be analyzed in detail in order to determine trends in the
measured values, for instance. This permits early reaction to problems even
before faulty parts are produced. All data is stored long-term in the IPM
software database so that seamless traceability of produced parts is
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
