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.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
