LED Edge-Lighting Solution

Global Lighting Technologies (GLT), Inc. (Brecksville, OH) now offers LED edge-lighting solutions that focus light into a high-performance backlight, or light guide. Because the LEDs are located on the edge of the light guide, there is better optical control for color and uniformity, fewer LEDs, better repeatability, and the thinnest possible lighting solution.

TRIO-UPS

Phoenix Contact, Middletown, PA, has introduced the TRIO-UPS uninterruptible power supply for use with industrial PCs. The UPS automatically restarts a PC in the event of an extended power outage. The UPS features an adjustable DC voltage output time function, enabling it to continue operating through short interruptions of main power. The charge unit and 5A power supply are housed in a single, DIN-rail-mountable package. The system includes a software package that lets the user configure alarm set points, delay times, and hold-up times. It also enables real-time monitoring of the UPS status including battery mode, charge mode, and battery capacity.

Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors

New large cell prismatic electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLC) from Ioxus (Oneonta, NY) are for transportation and utility applications and are lower in cost for the overall system design. The 1,000-, 3,000-, and 5,000-Farad (F) ultracapacitors are smaller in size, with increased energy and power density, compared to products of other industry players.
