Plug & Play Driver for Pulsed Laser Diodes

Laser Components (Hudson, NH) offers the LSP40 plug & play driver module, which can be used to accurately control pulsed laser diodes (PLDs). With two resistors, the user is able to regulate the operating current (and thus the laser power) and the pulse length. It requires an operating voltage of 12 VDC and an external trigger signal. The laser current can be set to any value up to 40A, and the pulse length can be set to between 30ns and 150ns. At a reduced current, pulse lengths up to 1μs are achievable.

Solar PV Encapsulant

DuPont (Wilmington, DE) has collaborated with Oerlikon Solar to produce the DuPont™ PV5223 thin white reflective solar PV encapsulant sheet. This thin 0.45-mm white reflective encapsulant eliminates the need for reflective paint typically used to reflect light back to the active layer. Designed for use with Oerlikon Solar's Micromorph® technology, the PV5223 increases light reflectivity by more than 50% versus paint, achieving 94% reflectivity, and delivers stronger adhesion than clear PVB sheet materials, which translates into longer-life modules.

KD-2446

Kaman Precision Products/ Measuring, Middletown, CT, has introduced the KD-2446, a high-precision proximity sensor system that offers RoHS and CE compliance in a compact DIN package. With a 10-KHz analog output and threshold-adjustable 3.3-KHz switched output, the sensor is designed for high-speed automated manufacturing and process control applications. The sensor provides 0.008%FS resolution and 0.56%FS switch point hysteresis. Applications include displacement, vibration, sorting, and event capture. The sensor uses inductive eddy current technology that measures without touching the target, and works with both ferrous and non-ferrous targets. The system consists of two sub-assemblies: the sensor with integral cable, and the signal conditioning or electronics module. Input voltage is variable from 12 to 24 V DC, and gain is adjustable for up to 22 V output (with 24 Vdc input). The system comes standard with one of two production sensor configurations: the 9C or the 5CM. Both rugged sensors are rated for continuous operation up to 400 °F.

Motor Design Software

Cobham Technical Services (Aurora, IL) has introduced the 3D Advanced Machines Environment that combines finite-element analysis simulation with a design entry system to create 3D models of electric motors or generators. The electromagnetic design tool for rotating electrical machines is an application-specific toolbox of the Opera electromagnetic simulator. The software provides a front end to the electromagnetic simulator that uses “fill in the blanks” dialog boxes. Users select the form of motor they want to design from a list of common types. By entering a list of parameters to define mechanical geometry, material properties, and electrical data, the 3D models are automatically created.

Compressor

The 2450 Series WOB-L® compressor from Thomas Division, a Gardner Denver Co. (Sheboygan, WI) features a footprint of 8.3 × 4 × 6.4" and sound levels of 50 dBA @ 20 PSIG. The compressor features a monolithic head that reduces leak paths, optional intake locations on the side and bottom, boltless construction to reduce vibration and noise, and center line-of-gravity mounting options. Maximum flow for the 115V/60 Hz compressor is 3.0 CFM, and maximum pressure is 30 PSIG.
