TRAC4152-0813-5922

WIMA MKP 4F With MKP 4F WIMA has introduced a new range of filter capacitors based on metallized Polypropylene (PP) dielectric.

 

- Printed circuit modules (PCM) from 27.5 mm to 52.5 mm

- Capacitances from 0.68 F to 75 F

- Nominal voltages from 230 VAC to 440 VAC.

 

Due to their typical circuit position AC filter capacitors have to exhibit good high-frequency characteristics and at the same time high AC voltage capabilities. They in general fulfil two requirements:

 

- Low AC impedance to dissipate high-frequency interference signals

- Attenuation of transient voltage pulses caused e.g. by switching.

 

WIMA filter capacitors are designed on the basis of low-loss Polypropylene film and exhibit high AC current capability at high frequencies as well as low ESL and ESR values. The 440 VAC range has an internal series connection and stands out for an increased corona discharge inception voltage. WIMA capacitors are produced with the proven box technology using solvent-resistant, flame-retardant plastic cases according to UL 94 V-0. They are environmentally compatible with the RoHS 2011/65/EU regulations of the European Union.

Piher’s New Through-Shaft Steering Angle Rotary Sensor Offers Small Package and Cost-Effective Alternative to Encoder TechnologyPIHER PST 360

Piher International Corporation has announced the immediate availability of a new shaft angle rotary sensor – the PST-360 Through-Hole Position Sensor. The PST-360 combines a through-shaft design with 360º absolute position feedback in an extremely thin package.
Key features include a through-hole design where the sensor fits over existing shaft and bearing assemblies. The new sensor incorporates a proprietary ring magnet with a fully sealed Hall ASIC as the sensor element. This combination is truly non-contacting and does not rely on gears or other interfacing parts and therefore matches the durability specifications of the final application. The proprietary design provides a streamlined sensor with only one moving part along with programmable electronics designed for harsh environments. The result is an exceptionally small form factor, cost-effective product.
Measuring just 9.8mm thick with a body diameter of 37mm and 50.0mm mounting hole spacing, engineers can now integrate a fully featured rotary sensor directly on their existing shafts without the packaging issues that typically accompany encoders or other through shaft sensing devices. The standard model features a rotor with a 14.05mm inside diameter (double flatted) shaft design. Other custom rotor configurations are available from PIHER to adapt existing OEM shafts to the standard PST-360 Sensor.
The PST-360 is an extremely robust design with fully encapsulated electronics surrounding the durable ring magnet, allowing for use in high humidity environments. Unlike optical encoders, it has no sensitivity to dust or dirt and can tolerant high vibration cycles as the ring magnet never comes into contact with the sensing electronics.
The new device offers electrical angles up to 360° with no dead band and linearity error as low as ±0.5%. Rated for use at -40ºC to +85ºC, optional models are rated up to 150°C. The sensor can be programmed with full scale output with angles as narrow as 20 degrees. The device supports most common electrical signal outputs with minimal investment. Optional outputs include: Analog, PWM (12 bit) or Serial Protocol (SPI) at 14 bits and includes a second output channel to provide a programmable switch signal. Redundant versions are available with duplex, triplex and quad redundant versions all within the same package size.
With its integrated redundancy, the new sensor is ideally suited for use in a wide range of off-highway, construction and agriculture equipment drive-by-wire applications. It can be easily adapted to fit marine outboard steering and throttle control, robotic controls, material handling, electronic braking systems, automation equipment and medical devices.
“The PST-360 provides a breakthrough in terms of simplicity, size, cost and robustness, especially when compared to existing absolute angle sensors and encoders,” explains Paul Cain, Piher International’s General Manager for North America. “The propriety Hall design incorporates a rotating ring magnet as the sensing source, allowing for the smaller package and simplified electronics that are easily integrated into the final customer’s product”.

Piher Introduces Non-Contacting 360 Rotary Position Sensor, Featuring Fully Programmable Switch Function and High Temperature Capabilities for Harsh EnvironmentsPIHER PSC 360

Piher North America has introduced the non-contacting PSC-360 programmable Hall effect magnetic sensor featuring a switch function not found in other 360 absolute position sensors. The switching point can be programmed at any angle allowing maximum design flexibility. It can also be used as a indicator for multi-turn applications. This unique low current switch design incorporates both on and off positions that provide a secondary position verification for improved safety, especially important for mission-critical applications in harsh environments.
The PSC-360 Sensor also offers high temperature capabilities with operational performance between -40C to +150C and high accuracy over 360 at 0.5%. The bushing/panel mount style sensor features a standard inch D Flat shaft, in a low profile package of only 13 mm extremely advantageous for applications with tight packaging constraints.
The technology used by Piher breaks through the traditional magnetic fluxuation and complex circuitry barriers. Pihers technology is only sensitive to the flux density coplanar with the IC surface, which eliminates those problems and optimizes accuracy for absolute position feedback from 0 to 360 degrees. The simple, low-cost package maintains a true non-contacting air gap between the rotating magnet and the fixed sensing system.
Designed with the permanent magnet as the only moving component, the PSC-360 sensor provides a mechanical life of up to 50 million cycles. Further durability is incorporated with the fully sealed magnet and the sensors electronics (sensing system) encapsulated in molded plastic, providing a completely sealed IP67 rated sensor that is totally impervious to humidity. These features are ideally suited to harsh environmental exposure where shock, vibration, high humidity and dust are unavoidable.
Pihers technology is not only true absolute - maintaining the sensors true position even after a power interruption, it also offers full redundancy achieved with a dual core version within the same housing. The result is a highly configurable sensor that offers an excellent solution for the severe conditions found in industrial, food processing, agriculture and off-highway applications. Specific uses include hand throttle control and throttle position feedback, accelerator and brake pedals, wheel angle for off highway vehicles and tractors, farm implement position feedback, forklift lift and tilt control, suspension height, marine, cranes and airport ground support vehicles.
Other PSC-360 performance characteristics include linearity of 1% absolute (0.5% upon request), selectable analog (ratiometric), PWM, or serial protocol, up to 14 bit angular resolution, 40 bit ID number, and self-diagnostics. With the PSC-360s modular architecture and Pihers custom engineered technology capabilities, Piher can modify electrical characteristics, mechanical characteristics, and connector configurations to meet customer specifications. For example, Piher can provide the same full scale output over as short an electrical angle as narrow as15 degrees. The PSC-360 is priced under $30 each in production quantities with immediate availability.

Piher International Corporation has announced the immediately availability of the non-contacting MTS 360 SMD Rotary Position Sensor. The MTS provides a true breakthrough in sensor technology by combining a through-shaft design with 360 absolute position feedback in an ultra miniature size. The result is the smallest fully featured rotary sensor on the market with reliability up to 25 million cycles.
With its tiny size of only 6mm x 17mm x 18mm (HxWxL), engineers can now integrate a fully featured rotary sensor directly on their PCB without the packaging issues that typically accompany encoders or other absolute position devices. The exceptionally low profile fits easily in places that were previously too small for pre-packaged rotary sensors.
The MTS 360 relies on patented Hall effect technology to enable for the first time, true non-contacting through-hole shaft sensing using standard SMD features. The offset through-hole accommodates the vacuum pick up tool, allowing use in automated SMD assembly systems. The standard model features a 4mm double D-flat shaft and an (8) pad SMD footprint that is compatible in most reflow soldering systems.
The new device offers electrical angles up to 360 with no dead band and linearity as low as 0.5%. Rated for use at -40C to +150C, the sensor can operate up to 300 RPM and can be programmed with full scale output with angles shorter than 360 degrees.
