Coupled Inductors

Coilcraft, Cary, IL, offers LPD8035V Series miniature, high-voltage, 1:1 coupled inductors that provide 1500 Vrms and one-minute isolation (hipot) between windings. The inductors are available in six inductance values ranging from 4.7 to 150 μH. They provide peak current ratings up to 2.7 Amps as well as coupling coefficient ≥0.97. They are qualified to AEC-Q200 Grade 3 standards (-40 to +85 °C ambient), making them suitable for automotive and other high-temperature applications. They feature RoHS-compliant matte tin over silver-platinum-glass frit terminations, and are halogen-free.

Power Entry Module

Schurter, Santa Rosa, CA, offers the DD14 series compact power entry modules that combine an IEC C14 appliance inlet with 2-pole switch and 2-stage filter. Shielding is optimized by screwing the metal casing of the filter to the panel using its horizontal or vertical flange. A snap-in filter version eliminates the flange. The system integrates the EMC filter directly in line with the power input. The two-stage filter design suppresses interference voltages. The module is rated for current levels up to 10 A/250 VAC according to IEC, and 8 A 125/250 VAC according to UL/CSA.

AC-DC Power Supply

The TDK-Lambda CUS200LD AC-DC power supply from TDK-Lambda Corp., National City, CA, is rated at 120W convection or 150W conduction cooled. Up to 206W can be delivered for up to 10 seconds to drive peak loads associated with dynamic LED displays. The 31-mm height allows the product to be mounted inside industrial equipment with limited space requirements. It has an 85 to 265Vac input and can operate in ambient temperatures of up to 70 °C with start-up at -40 °C. Six output voltages are available: 5V, 7.5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, and 48V, adjustable by ±10% for non-standard outputs.

Digitally Imprinted Parts

Rize, Woburn, MA, announced Digitally Augmented Parts, providing the ability to augment functional 3D-printed parts with digital information. Users can create a digital thread between the digital and physical part. The Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) hybrid printing process combines extrusion and material jetting, enabling 3D printing of industrial parts with embedded markers that create an immutable connection to the digital part. Using the voxel-level inkjetting capability of APD, users can 3D-print secure information on an industrial part in a QR code, for example.

SLS 3D Printer

Sinterit, Krakow, Poland, introduced the Sinterit Lisa 2 desktop-size selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printer that produces large prints in one piece, up to almost 32 cm (12.6”). It uses powder sintered together by a laser to achieve complex parts without the need for supports. A nitrogen chamber enables users to create a special environment inside the printer and expand the list of potential materials. Printing materials include plastics such as Nylon PA12 and Flexa black, and PA11.

3D Printing

3D Systems, Rock Hill, SC, introduced Figure 4™ Production and Figure 4 Standalone 3D printing technology. Figure 4 Production offers part print speeds up to 65 mm/hr, with prototyping speeds of up to 100 mm/hr. The Figure 4 platform utilizes a light-based UV curing process that takes minutes versus hours with heat-based curing processes. Highspeed molding supports long- and short-run batches, and allows different parts to be produced in the same batch. More than 30 materials are available for Figure 4 Production.
