standard models operate from a universal input of 90 to 264V ac, providing
tightly regulated outputs of 3.3, 5, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 24, +5/+3.3, +8/+5 or
+12/+5 V dc. Standard features include filtering to EN55022 Class B, input/output
isolation of 3,000V ac, and tight line/load regulation. All models are
protected for over load, over voltage, and short circuit faults.
The MTBF (per MIL HDBK 217F) of the MPM-04 series is greater than 350 khours.
The MPM-04 has a Class II input (IEC61140).
This means it can be used without an earth
ground connection. All models are approved to EN 60950. The series is certified
to CE and is
The MPM-04 series is packaged in a
miniature PCB mount package. Each model is specified for operation over the
wide operating temperature range of -40 to +70C (ambient).
The MPM-04 series is a
solution for a variety of applications requiring high performance, miniature
size and low cost. Applications would include industrial automation systems,
machine/process control equipment, and telecommunications/data processing
systems. With its Class II input, the MPM-04
series is a good choice for remote or portable equipment where a reliable
ground is often not available.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
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.
