MicroPower Direct's MPM-08MB series is a family of single and dual output 8W ac/dc
power supplies. These high performance modules include a wide ac input, full
safety approvals, robust filtering and a miniature PCB mount package. Eight
standard models operate from an input of 90 to 305V ac, providing tightly
regulated outputs of 3.3, 5, 9, 12, 15, 24, +5/+3.3, or +12/+5V 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-08MB series is greater than 350
The MPM-08MB 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 RoHS
compliant. The MPM-08MB series
is packaged in a 1.44 x 1.06 x 1.04 inch PCB mount package. Each model is rated
for operation over the operating temperature range of -40 to +70C (ambient). The
MPM-08 Mbyte series is a useful
solution for a variety of applications requiring high performance features and
a small PCB footprint. Applications would include industrial automation
systems, machine/process control equipment and telecommunications/data
processing systems. With its Class II input, the MPM-08MB series is an option for remote or portable equipment
where a reliable ground is often not available.
A middle school team from Rochester, Mich., has again nabbed the grand prize in the annual international Future City Competition, which drew students from 37 regions of the United States, as well as from England and China.
The word “smart” is becoming the dumbest word around. It has been applied to almost every device and system in our homes. In addition to smartphones and smart meters, we now hear about smart clothing and smart shoes, smart lights, smart homes, smart buildings, and every trendy city today has its smart city project. Just because it has a computer inside and is connected to the Web, does not mean it is smart.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
