The RT1 Ethernet rail transceiver from Hirschmann is DIN-rail mounted and dc-powered and meets the demands and environmental extremes of factory automation, traffic management, and process control systems, the company says. The RT1 requires no configuration, and user can build highly distributed industrial Ethernet networks. The transceiver provides secure transmission in areas of high electromagnetic interference and electrical isolation.

K3 Series sealed illuminator rocker switches from Otto Controls are snap-in panel mounting switches that feature front-panel re-lamping capability without disturbing the dust- and water-tight seal. A choice of LED, incandescent, and neon illumination is offered. Legends can be stamped onto a non-illuminated button, stamped onto an illuminated lens, or laser-etched into the lens and backlit.

The X-Cube beamsplitter from Richter Enterprises separates three color bands at 08 incidence and 458 internal reflection with minimum polarization and maximum transmission. Applications include projection systems and other display ones.

The WavePlexTM SXO61 compact radio frequency demodulator integrated circuit from American Microsystems Inc. shortens prototype development time for wireless spread spectrum applications, including data networks and security systems. The demodulator simplifies the process of getting a modulated radio signal to track properly, the company says. By assigning the development stage to internal protocols in the SX061, the time to bring a concept to prototype is shortened.
