Fuse offers extended ranges

Schurter extends the rated current range of its SHF 6.3x32 down to 500 mA for a total 19 rated currents, ranging from 500 mA to 32 A, including the newest 500 mA, 630 mA and 800 mA versions.

The SHF 6.3x32 is a ceramic fuse for higher voltages with fast tripping characteristics. The high dielectric strength and high breaking capacity of 1500 A at rated voltage of up to 500 VAC/VDC exemplifies the high performance of this fuse series, while also allowing for new areas of application.

Besides applications in the energy and industrial sector, the SHF 6.3x32 is suitable for the protection of three-phase systems. The compatibility with existing form and fit products on the market makes the SHF 6.3x32 an ideal substitution for applications with demand for increased ratings in the 6.3x32 mm size.

User-friendly remote switch

CBS ArcSafe has released the Chicken Switch brand of remote switching devices. The Chicken Switch’s design is lightweight and compact. It is a remote switch kit for select low-voltage electrically operated control switches and circuit breakers.

Under CBS ArcSafe, the Chicken Switch devices will retain their original root part number from Martek Limited (for example, CS01) but will feature the added prefix RSK (remote switch kit), which designates that the devices are sold as a complete solution or kit. The Chicken Switch does not require a separate remote switch operator as legacy CBS ArcSafe equipment does.

Laser modules

Modules designed for alignment applications

BEA Lasers has introduced two new additions to their MIL series of laser diode modules for alignment applications. The MIL RA alignment modules feature a low profile 3/8" rugged laser housing, fitted with an M12 connector. A PVC jacketed cable two meters long, integrated power supply and optional mounting bracket complete the system. The optional mounting bracket is available in sensor style or as a multi-adjustable “LB” bracket. The modules can be obtained in straight or right-angle configuration.

The MIL RA series laser diode system is available in standard 520 nm (green) or 635 nm (red), with 1 mW or 5 mW output. The MIL RA series laser modules are typically used for alignment and leveling applications. They are ideal for counting, machine vision, edge detection, paper web, riveting and water jet cutting alignment.

Angle Encoder

Sealed angle encoder ideal for machining applications

Heidenhain’s sealed angle encoder can be used as an alternative to modular angular encoders for use in motion control machining applications that require a larger-than-usual through-hole. The RCN 6000 series absolute sealed angle encoders with integral bearings have a large hollow shaft diameter of 180 mm, allowing larger-scale machines to take advantage of high resolution and signal quality.

Common applications for the RCN 6000 encoders are large-scale rotary tables and radio telescopes that can adapt their design to the encoder while the integrated stator coupling ensures alignment of the components involved in the scanning process, even if there are deviations in the shaft coupling.

The RCN 6000 series encoders uses Heidenhain’s metallur process (in which the graduation is applied directly to the bearing ring) and a reflected light scanning method, which gives it compact dimensions and larger mounting tolerances when compared to other products of its type. These integrated features—along with the compact design—minimize mounting difficulty while making the most of its unique shape.

Photodiodes convert broadband light to photocurrents

Marktech Optoelectronics’ InGaAs/InP PIN photodiodes are designed to convert broadband light into photocurrents within the VIS-SWIR range. In addition to their low noise, high sensitivity and high-speed response, they feature wide standard spectral ranges of 0.6 μm to 1.7 μm (1.7 μm material), low dark current and high efficiency, typically 0.6A/W. Standard model MTPD1346D-xx series broadband PIN photodiodes are offered in active area sizes from 0.1 mm to 3.0 mm.

Each is packaged in a hermetically sealed, three-pin TO-46 metal can with flat lens cap, with a choice of either through-hole or surface mounting. The photodiodes may be integrated seamlessly, together with Marktech SWIR emitters, as a single, compact package.

Marktech MTPD1346D-xx series InGaAs/InP broadband PIN photodiodes are designed to support applications in which high-speed performance, high data rates, low dark current, small capacitance and smaller active area sizes are required. Typical applications include aerospace, automation, autonomous vehicles, high-speed communications, industrial controls, medical, material and chemical analysis, security and wearables.
