Spring-Loaded Screws

PEM® ReelFast® SMTPFLSM™ surfacemount, spring-loaded, captive panel screws from PennEngineering®, Danboro, PA, install permanently on printed circuit boards to provide secure attachment and allow for subsequent access whenever necessary. The all-metal assemblies mount in one piece on boards using the pick-and-place method, and install in the same manner and at the same time as other surface-mount components prior to the automated reflow solder process. They are supplied on tape and reel, and are compatible with existing SMT automated installation equipment. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61058-110

Product of the Month

MSC Software Corp., Newport Beach, CA, announced the release of Marc 2015 nonlinear and multiphysics simulation software. Enhancements include new material models to simulate complex dynamic behavior of elastomers, permanent deformation of thermoplastics, and anisotropic plastic deformation in metal forming. The software provides a cohesive contact behavior that allows users to apply a finite stiffness in the normal and tangential direction, improving stress results in the contact zones and the overall deformation. A new family of elements has improved bending behavior compared to traditional lower order triangular and tetrahedral elements, and can be used for either compressible or nearly incompressible behavior. Two new global adaptive meshing methods are included, as well as improvements to Mentat, the user interface of Marc.

Integrated Circuits

The Standard Power Series from Honeywell (Fort Mill, SC) includes four new sensor ICs. The integrated circuits offer a sensitivity of 11 Gauss max., allowing design engineers to use larger air gaps between the sensor IC and the magnet. The Standard Power Series Sensor ICs also feature a solid-state, non-contact, no-glass design. The devices have a supply voltage range of 3 Vdc-24 Vdc and operating temperature range of -40 to 185 °F. Potential applications include flow sensing in HVAC, anti-tamper detection in utility meters, and RPM sensing in exercise equipment and door position detection.
