Water Repellent Cables

Cicoil (Valencia, CA) has released water-repellent silicone cables that are impervious to immersion, high humidity, fungus, and damp operating environments. Also, extremely dry conditions, low humidity, or salt spray and seawater exposure will not affect the cable’s high flexibility or life. The flat silicone cables are available with wire gauges from 4 to 44 AWG and can withstand temperature extremes from -65 degrees to +260 degrees Celsius. They are available in continuous lengths or as assemblies complete with connectors.

Intensified CCD Camera

Hamamatsu Corporation (Bridgewater, NJ) has introduced the C10054 series of compact Intensified CCD (ICCD) cameras for capturing still images or continuous video of high-speed or ultra-low-light phenomena. Key features include a high-speed electronic shutter that provides a shutter time as short as 5 ns, and image intensifiers that increase available light for detection by the camera’s CCD. Spectral response of the camera ranges from UV to visible to near-infrared. The camera head is equipped with either a TV format-type CCD or a progressive scan CCD and image resolution is up to 480 TV lines. The C10054 is available with three different types of photocathodes.

12-bit CCD Camera System

The electron multiplication 12-bit CCD camera system from The Cooke Corporation (Romulus, MI) has a resolution of 1004 × 1002 pixels and is suitable for extreme low-light camera applications. The system features thermo-electrical cooling of the image sensor (down to -45°C vs. ambient) and a quantum efficiency of up to 65%. A high-speed serial data link connects the system to a PC and a fiber optic link is available. Exposure time modes (software selectable) range from 75 μs – 1h.

LED Driver Boards

Two new Smart ForceTM LED driver boards from Endicott Research Group (Endicott, NY) provide wide range dimming, wide input voltage, and full brightness. The SFDL Series driver board provides high efficiency power with a maximum current of 180 mA, and measures 1.10 in. by 3.93 in. The SFDC Series driver board is a full-function LED driver with a maximum current of 1000 mA. It measures 1.10 in. by 5.61 in. and provides an on-board PWM dimming ratio of 1000:1 and external PWM dimming to a ratio of 20,000:1. Both drivers can be used with OEM panels’ existing LED backlights or with ERG’s Smart Force LED rails.

Digital Panel Meters

Mouser Electronics, Inc. (Mansfield, TX) has expanded its C&D Technologies portfolio to include the DMS-30DR series daylight-readable digital panel meters. The DMS-30DR series of large, 0.56-inch high, super-bright red LEDs are readable in direct sunlight without the need for special filters or shading devices. These devices can be used in very high ambient light conditions, but can also dim themselves for poorer light. Characters on the DMS-30DR series can be read at viewing angles of up to 180° in both vertical and horizontal planes.

CO2 Lasers

A new series of low-power, continuous-wave (CW) CO2 lasers from Coherent, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) now offers high reliability operation for OEM applications. The new DIAMOND C Series consists of sealed lasers with output powers of 30, 40, 55, and 70 watts at 10.6 μm. The lasers offer amplitude stability of ±5% for air-cooled models and ±3% for liquid-cooled units. The DIAMOND C Series also offers output beam characteristics of M2 < 1.2 for 30W and 55W systems, and M2 1.3 for 40W and 70W models.

Simscape™

The MathWorks, Natick, MA, has released Simscape™ software for modeling and simulating multidomain physical systems. Employing a physical network approach to model building, Simscape allows engineers to describe the physical structure of a system, rather than the underlying mathematics. From the model, the software automatically constructs equations that characterize the behavior of the system, and integrates them with the rest of the model. It provides libraries of fundamental elements from electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical domains that can be combined in a single environment. Engineers can convert models into C code using Real-Time Workshop® to run models in real time and perform hardware-in-the-loop testing. For Free Info
