Halogen-Free Coating

Specialty Coating Systems, Indianapolis, IN, offers ParyFree® halogen-free Parylene coating that is applied through a vapor deposition process, resulting in an ultra-thin, uniform, pinhole-free conformal coating. The thin film forms at a molecular level to fully encapsulate components and devices. The coating offers improved barrier properties over traditional halogen-free variants, and meets IPX7 and IPX8 test requirements for waterproof protection to electronic device and components.

Current Transducer

NK Technologies, San Jose, CA, introduced the DT-BB DC current transducer that allows a split-core transducer to be installed over existing bus bars or wire, and to be mounted on a panel or DIN rail. It is rated to measure DC current at working voltage to 1500 VDC. The power supply and output signal wires are connected to the sensor with a terminal block that plugs into the header on top of the sensor. Standard output is 4–20 mA unipolar or 4–12–20 mA bipolar.

The DT Series dual transmitters from Acromag, Wixom, MI, interface a variety of process and sensor signals to a control system. They feature two independent signal conditioning channels in a 17.5-mm-wide module. A signal splitter mode lets one input drive both outputs. Input options include process current, DC voltage, thermocouple, RTD, and resistance signal types with proportional process current or unipolar/bipolar voltage output.

Light-Curing Adhesive

DELO, Sudbury, MA, introduced DELO Photobond GB4033 light-curing acrylate for seal bonding. Designed for material joints that require adhesives to be strong, flexible, and tight, this low-viscosity, one-component, solvent-free acrylate provides sealing properties against water, humidity, and dust. It can be used in temperatures ranging from -40 to +120 °C and allows for good peel resistance on glass and plastic. The adhesive cures under both UV and visible light.

DC Power Module

Mouser Electronics, Mansfield, TX, offers the MAXM17552 step-down DC-DC power module from Maxim Integrated. The micro system-level IC power module provides an input voltage range of 4 V to 60 V and delivers up to 100 mA output current over an adjustable output voltage from 0.9 V to 5.5 V. The module uses peak-current-mode control architecture, operates in pulse-width modulation (PWM) mode, and offers a soft-start feature to reduce input inrush current. It offers an ambient operating temperature range of -40 to 125 °C.
