The new SBS50™ finger-proof connector has a 2-pole housing. It minimizes contact with live contacts, per UL 1977 and UL 60950 regulations, for systems operating over 50V. Its design also allows operators greater ease when connecting and disconnecting. Along with flat wipe contact technology, it makes hot plugging and unplugging easy and safe while using minimal real estate.

Digital Servo Drive
DR100RE Series digital drives are for brushless, rotary, or linear servomotors that use resolver feedback. The 20-kHz digital current loop uses Space Vector Modulation (SVM) switching techniques that result in higher current loop bandwidth. The sinusoidal, resolver-based commutation of brushless motors results in the lowest possible torque or force ripple.

Secondary Side Post Regulator
The LT3710 secondary-side post regulator allows design of multiple output isolated power supplies using current mode architecture with output currents from 1A to 20A and output voltages as low as 0.8V. It drives two external N-channel MOSFETs synchronously at up to 500-kHz switching frequency, delivering high power at high efficiency while using small-sized inductors and capacitors. The 0.8V voltage reference is +1.5% accurate, and current-mode operation allows line and load regulation.

Expanded Power Connectors
UL-approved Power Series 120 power connectors are available in a 2-pole battery connector or a single-pole, stackable general-purpose connector. Rated for 120A at 600V (ac or dc) when using 2-AWG wire, both connector styles use a genderless housing design that mates two identical connector halves so only one housing part number is necessary. They're suitable for material handling equipment, electrical vehicles, electric utility vehicles, power supplies, rechargeable batteries, and telecom equipment.

New 125Arms Current Transducer
The LAH 125-P model current transducer family has added a unit rated for nominal current measurements of 125Arms. Adding a higher current capability to the existing 25Arms, 50Arms, and 100Arms models, it allows ac-dc and accurate to 0.5% over a frequency range or 0 kHz to 100 kHz. Powered from a supply of ±12V to 15V, it has a 3 dB bandwidth of dc to 100 kHz. Using less than 6cm2 of p. c. board area, it's 27 mm high and weighs 30 g.
