1U High Fault Tolerant Supplies
The PowerCassette Rack, a IU (1.72-in.) high, 19-in. rack, holds two new switching power supplies. The two units in a 1+1 redundant, hot-swap configuration produce up to 600W dc with up to six outputs. Outputs are programmed at the factory to meet a customer's requirements. The non-redundant mode, produces up to 1200W with up to six outputs. The rack provides front or back ac power entry using IEC320 inputs with switches or terminal block inputs. The modules are secured by means of a front panel jackscrew.

This new series of film capacitors for high power filter applications offers improved space utilization and reliability. The UL31 series features three styles with a low profile construction to enhance system space usage and increase cooling efficiency. An in-house, “specific to the task”, thermoplastic formulation used for the enclosure significantly improves thermal conductivity and resistance to hostile environments. An integrated flange with predrilled holes simplifies mounting procedures.

These ultra-low reverse leakage/low forward voltage drop Schottky rectifiers are available in plastic TO-247 packages. Rated at 100V/150V, and 30A/40A, they are suitable for free-wheeling and polarity protection diodes, converters, and switching power supply applications. The primary benefit is low power dissipation due to the fast switching speed of the Schottky junction coupled with a low forward voltage drop of 0.79V at rated current and operating temperature. The rectifiers are guard-ring protected for overvoltage.

DC Current Transducers
The new CR5200 series of Hall Effect current transducers is specifically designed for non-contact dc monitoring available in full scale ranges from 2Adc to 300Adc. The transducers operate from a 24Vdc supply. They monitor dc and produce a calibrated 0Vdc to 5Vdc or 4mA to 20mA output signal and provide accurate readings of 1% full scale and are highly stable over temperature variations with thermal drift of less than 500 ppm/°C. A unique design feature allows mounting on 35 mm DIN rails, or they can be surface mounted.
