Non-Contact Laser Shutters

FlexSorb™ laser shutters from nmLaser Products (San Jose, CA) feature a high damage threshold, small size, and quiet operation. The moving part is a low-mass, flexible, ferromagnetic cantilever membrane that is moved in and out of the beam by noncontact electromagnetic techniques. The shutters are immersion cleaning compatible and can be used for clean room type applications. They are designed for 24V type circuits with a timed impulse to open and a lower voltage for long-term hold. Aperture sizes range from 3mm to 14mm. They feature switching speeds from under 10 msec to 50 msec, and exhibit low backscatter from DUV through FIR wavelengths.

Glass-Glass Photovoltaic Modules

Silicon Energy (Arlington, WA) and DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions (Wilmington, DE) have introduced glass-glass polycrystalline silicon (cSi) photovoltaic (PV) power-generating modules made with DuPont™ PV5300 series ionomer-based encapsulant for added module strength and durability. Two 60-mil layers of the encapsulant surround silicon wafers to add high-transmittance tempered glass and increased flexural strength over traditional modules. The encapsulant is also resistant to moisture intrusion.

RGB Laser Driver

Maxim Integrated Products (Sunnyvale, CA) has introduced the MAX3600, a 3-channel RGB laser driver that enables integration of high-resolution pico projectors into small-form-factor applications. Fabricated using Maxim’s BiCMOS process, the device achieves switching times of s generate billions of colors and contrast ratios of 5000:1 and higher, while consuming 75% less real estate and 30% less power than discrete designs, making it suitable for battery-operated devices. Packaged in a 5mm × 5mm, 40-pin TQFN, the MAX3600 operates over temperatures ranging from 0 °C to +70 °C.

Boreoscope Camera

The FSC2 boreoscope camera from Schoelly Imaging (Worcester, MA) features an integrated LED light at the camera head, eliminating the need for light cables. The small CCU features auto white balance, variable brightness control, AGC, and a custom window feature that fits the boreoscope image to the camera chip. Outputs include composite video, S-Video, and a USB 2.0 digital port for capturing images to a PC. A variety of boreoscope probes ranging in diameter from 0.35mm to 2.7mm can be attached via a bayonet quick mount.

Scalable Shutters

Vincent Associates (Rochester, NY) has introduced three DSS Shutter Series products: the DSS10 (10mm aperture), the DSS20 (20mm aperture), and the DSS 25 (25mm aperture). The DSS series does not require an external protruding actuator and contains no other interfering components. All drive and damping related components related to the mechanical motion of the shutter are contained or integrated within. It can be scaled for alternate aperture sizes.

Solar On/Off Grid Power Platform

Sunpods (San Jose, CA) has unveiled the SP-500 SunPods Solar Agriculture & Remote Site Power Systems, which are designed to provide solar power for on-grid and off-grid agricultural processing, wells, irrigation, and water distribution systems. The systems are engineered for grid connected or off-grid agriculture power-on-demand solutions for farms, ranches, and wineries needed for product processing, center-pivot irrigation systems, water irrigation, water distribution, water processing, and well-water pumping. At off-the-grid remote locations, the system replaces fuel-powered genset power sources. Municipal water agencies can utilize the systems for pumping water at water towers, wastewater, and water purification plants. They require 100V-480V, 50Hz/60Hz AC or 12/24/48VDC, scalable from 2.4-kW units to megawatt size.
