Omron Electronics LLC has released the 2008/09 Industrial Automation Product Catalog for North America. The catalog contains 800 pages with more than 4,800 products, including hundreds of new items.
Written in easy-to-read and -use format, this book updates and revises its bestselling predecessor to become the most complete, comprehensive resource on plastics testing. This book has an emphasis on significance of test methods and interpretation of results.
Mass production of parts usually involves injection molding along with significant time to market. But the time and development involved with injection molding proves prohibitive when only low-volume orders are placed, which is the case for medical pre-production and production of a device.
Fully shrouded post headers, available in two through 12 positions, have been added to the popular Economy Power (EP) connector family. Intended for secondary power circuit applications, the through-hole headers have a current-carrying capacity of 7.5 A maximum per contact.
The multifunctional NSG 3040 test system generates electrical fast transient (EFT), surge, and power quality tests (PQT) and is fully compliant to the latest versions of IEC/EN 61000-4-4, -4-5, and -4-11, making the system ideal for use in CE mark testing. The system can generate EFT tests to 4.
Sarcon GR-Fd thermal interface gap filler pad is a unique gel-like material. It is manufactured with an integrated nylon mesh layer that prevents distortion and stretching during die-cut operations.
More than 10,000 DC-DC solutions in the lower power range (below 60 Watts) are offered. The parts are pin compatible with many popular designs to offer a high-quality drop-in replacement solution for engineers.
A line of XRF tools is introduced for compliance testing and monitoring of prohibitive metals for the EU directives RoHS/WEEE for the circuit board and packaging electronics and plating industries.
The GORE SFP+ copper cable assemblies offer a more reliable, efficient, and economical alternative to fiber optic modules for transmitting 10 Gbps data at distances up to 25 meters.
Visual aesthetics are a key feature for the RoHS compliant Series 14 range of raised and flush mount pushbuttons, indicators, switches, selector switches, and key switches. Series 14 is available in 22.5 and 30.
This stackable multilayer capacitor series features a significantly reduced footprint, increasing printed circuit board space. Offering high capacitance values with low ESR, the TurboCap MLCs (patent pending) are designed to handle high ripple current at high frequencies and high power levels.
The Bal Conn contact, which consists of a canted-coil spring retained in a metal housing, ensures uniform, reliable mechanical and electrical contact between the battery and lead in implantable devices.
The Rhodeus offers mid-range computing power in a compact, low power consumption, and low cost PC/104 single board computer. It is an excellent choice for low cost/high volume applications with mid-range performance requirements, such as medical equipment and instrumentation.
Outsourcing using concurrent engineering practices provides the hands-on approach for a company that enables it to gain the most in efficiencies from manufacturing. It can be used by virtually any company of any size and applied to any medical device, product, or component.
In the medical device industry, designers continue to face unique challenges that stem from the broader manufacturing process. These can include anything from shorter product lifecycles and increased regulatory scrutiny to the need to source materials from a myriad of suppliers across the value chain.
