Eurotherm has adopted EtherNet/IP as the communications protocol for its 6000 series Paperless Graphic Recorders, allowing its recorders to communicate with a huge installed base of EtherNet/IP enabled PLCs and other I/O and control devices in many industrial applications.
Hirose Electric Co., Ltd. offers an extensive line of flexible circuit connectors. Designated the FH Family, the connectors come in many different configurations with contact pitches ranging from 1 to 0.
The QuasarBrite narrow beam SMT LED provides users with a tight beam of high-intensity red, green or blue light.
The improved V4 microswitches offer a reduced differential movement of 0.05mm and below to better accommodate industrial applications such as electromagnetic brakes or pressure switches that require very small differential movements to operate correctly.
The EKB-97-TP is a backlit keyboard that is lit by blue LED lighting. The keyboard is ideal for working in dimly lit areas such as labs and patient rooms.
As hospital rooms become more high tech, an important concern for today's medical device designer is electromagnetic interference (EMI). Much attention has already been given to the infamous cell phone case which highlights interference from radio frequency signals.
Most medical devices are designed for the purpose of assisting people who are sick or suffering.
Plain bearings employ advanced PTFE polymers, ceramic, and specialty composites for linear and rotary applications to meet motion system designers' demanding requirements.
Laser machining capabilities include data-matrix marking, allowing for a significant amount of data to be stored in a very small space. This process is typically used for marking small and difficult surfaces.
The EZ-Zone PM panel mount controller, in a 1/8 DIN size, is available with choice of horizontal or vertical configuration, allowing it to fit variable cabinet profiles. It features larger characters and buttons, improving usability.
The FFS760S balloon pleating and folding equipment offers increased throughput and operator efficiency with the use of dual in-line Wavepleat and fold heads, allowing for processing on one set of heads while the other set is being loaded.
The redesigned, solenoid-operated 075P2 two-way valves have low power requirements and are available with a normally open or normally closed valve function. The design eliminates sharp edges, with smooth contours that allow easier insertion and removal of tubing without snares.
Circuit designers pressed for space should check out the CC7A-T1A, a MHz quartz crystal designed for applications in implantable medical, medical telemetry, and other high-reliability markets. This precision timing crystal has a package height of 0.9 mm and a footprint of only 3.2 × 1.5 mm.
Nano miniature electrical connectors are capable of terminating multiple lines of ultra-fine coaxial cable. Their proprietary process of terminating signals and grounds on separate contact pairs allows for extreme miniaturization of multi-contact high speed connectors.
Metal injection molding offers advantages to allow for producing complex, three dimensional shapes in medical device components that would be virtually impossible to achieve with conventional fabrication technologies.
