TDK-Lambda Americas Inc.'s new
single-output ZPSA100 is available with single output voltages
from 5V to 48V dc and are well-suited for operation in convection or air cooled
environments from 0 to 70C, with appropriate derating. A green LED is used as
an indicator that the power supply is on, and other features include over
voltage and short-circuit protection. These supplies are offered in an
open-board configuration with Molex input/output connectors.
Accepting a wide input voltage range of 90-264V ac (47-440Hz) or 120-370V dc,
the ZPSA100 series is ready for use with no further configuration or input
selection. It can be a drop-in replacement for existing supplies and can be
installed in compact applications.
TDK-Lambda's ZPSA100 series is approved to
national and international safety approvals, including IEC/EN/UL/CSA60950-1 (Edition
2) meets conducted and radiated EMC requirements of EN55022-B and FCC Class B
(without additional filtering or components) and meets EN61000-4 immunity
specifications. Models in the ZPSA100 series carry the CE
mark, according to the LV Directive, and come with a two-year warranty. It is
for applications such as LED signage and lighting, point-of-sale equipment,
datacom, video/audio routers and test and measurement equipment.
Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
