2009 PTB Products of the Year

Nextreme has integrated its OptoCooler UPF4 thermoelectric cooler into Voxtel’s VDHAX line of hermetically-packaged avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers. The OptoCooler-equipped APD device will be used for applications in military laser radar and optical communications and commercial telecommunications. APDs can multiply the signal produced by incident light by as much as 100 million times, enabling photon detection at very low light levels. The APD device delivers more than 45°C of cooling during operation. The UPF4 removes a maximum of 610mW of heat at 85°C ambient in an active footprint of 0.55mm2.

Programmable Actuator

The IDEA(TM) Drive stepper motor linear actuator from Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions (Waterbury, CT) integrates a linear actuator, electronic drive, and control unit with a patented GUI (Graphical Unit Interface). The GUI enables the operator to automatically enter motor and drive parameters based on the actuator part number. Complex parameter calculations or in-depth stepper motor knowledge is not needed.

Retaining Rings

The Hoopster(R) retaining rings from Smalley Steel Ring Company (Lake Zurich, IL) fit into shallower groves than regular snap rings or retaining rings. The rings’ low-profile, precision circularity, and small radial size allow it to be an unobtrusive component in an assembly. They are suited for light to heavy loads and are ideal for thin wall tubes.
