The LT3021 is hailed by the company as the industry's first 500 mA very low dropout regulator (VLDO). It features input voltage capability as low as 1.4V. It maintains its 160 mV dropout voltage up to 500 mA of operating current. It is stable with low ESR, ceramic output capacitors. Internal protection circuitry includes reverse-battery protection, current limiting, thermal limiting with hysteresis, and reverse-current protection. Linear Technologyhttp://rbi.ims.ca/4396-576


Offers continuous position data

The Nano-Gauge measurement gauge can resolve dimensions down to 5 nm over a full scale range of 25 mm. It is engineered to offer continuous position data to the user's PC via a standard plug-and-play USB interface for the display of real-time measurement values. The product is ideal for a variety of applications, including transducer design and calibration, development of nanoindentation systems, and materials testing.

The 222-415 splicing connector is engineered for the electrical industry as a cost-effective, more flexible alternative to traditional twist- or crimp-style connectors. They use the company's patented Cage Clamp spring pressure connection technology, which provides for a reliable, vibration-proof, corrosion/temperature cycling resistant, and maintenance-free connection. It is UL listed for 600V/20A and can terminate wire sizes 28-12 awg. WAGO Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4396-578


Small, powerful

The ADAM-6501 communication controller is reportedly the smallest application-ready Intel XScale communication controller currently available to the industrial market. It features a 400 MHz processor, a CompactFlash slot, embedded Web server, FTP server, and telnet server. It has embedded Microsoft Windows CE .NET 4.2, along with 32 Mbytes of onboard flash memory and 64 Mbytes SDRAM. Advantech Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4396-579


Saves time

The Platform Builder was designed for OEMs looking to build long-life products that require minimal customization. The configuration tool allows the company's engineers to provide OEM customers with a plan for building prequalified unbranded systems. It speeds the customer's time to market because all components are preconfigured, have been put through quality testing, and have all required FCC, CE, CSA, and UL certifications, making prototypes unnecessary.

Eight USB ports

Ideal for industrial applications, the ATX-807 Mini ITX Form Factor single-board computer features an 800 MHz FSB Pentium 4 Prescott CPU, eight USB ports, and dual Ethernet ports. Two DIMM sockets support up to 2 Gbytes DDR memory. An external connector is available to display LAN status on the front panel of the computer chasse, and the SBC is outfitted with a support hardware monitor and watchdog timers that will alert users of abnormal operations.

Integrated coding

The company's I/O System (Series 753) offers pluggable connectors for I/O module wiring, enabling users to pre-manufacture wiring harnesses and plug them into the product. It measures 12 × 64 × 100 mm, and features built-in test points at every connection point. The test point is completely shrouded to hold and stabilize the test probe. Integrated coding allows up to 16 different coding possibilities. WAGO Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4396-582


Fit seismic racks

The 1U, 2U, and 4U horizontal Type 39c chassis have been designed to fit seismic racks. According to the company, they will now have options to fit both 19-inch racks with an opening of 17.75-inches and NEBS seismic racks with an opening of 17.5-inches. The company reduced the width of the chassis, but still fit horizontally plugged 6U cards, 3U pluggable power supplies, as well as a vertically mounted pluggable fan tray and removable filter tray.

Solid state

The 2,500 btu thermoelectric air conditioner has no compressor, refrigerants, or filters. It is designed to provide reliable, maintenance-free cooling in indoor and outdoor applications. The product is suitable for use in operating environments up to 140F. The flush-mount design eliminates protrusion into the enclosure, and it features a built-in adjustable electronic thermostat, high-performance nickel-plated heat sinks, and an integral condensate drip pan.

Pin-connector versions

The company has released the pin connector versions of two of its USB digital I/O modules: USB-DIO24/37 and USB-DIO24H/37. The USB-DIO24/37 offers 24 bits of logic level digital I/O, and the USB-DIO24H/37 offers 24 bits of DIO with high current (15 mA source, 64 mA sink) output capability. Both products use 37-pin connectors and come without a case. Both products are USB 1.1 and 2.0 compatible, and are supported under Microsoft Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP.
