36-V, 1-A STEP-DOWN SYNCHRONOUS REGULATOR SIMPLIFIES INTERMEDIATE POWER BUS AND POINT-OF-LOAD POWER DESIGNS

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications, today introduced the ADP2441, DC-to-DC switching regulator, the most recent in ADI’s growing portfolio of integrated power management switching regulators. The new 36-V, 1-A (amp) step-down regulator integrates both low-on-resistance, high-side and low-side power switches to provide compact point-of-load design and offers more than 94 percent efficiency. Under light load conditions, the ADP2441 will automatically operate in PSM (pulse-skip mode) to reduce switching losses and improve energy efficiency.

The ADP2441 supports a wide input range from 4.5 V to 36 V to accommodate a diversity of point-of-load applications including industrial and communication equipment and healthcare electronics. Output voltage is adjustable from 0.6 V to 90 percent of input voltage. The new regulator also offers low minimum on-time of 50 ns (nano seconds) saving valuable board space and cost through its suitability for single-stage, high input to low output power conversion.

By using a current-mode constant frequency PWM (pulse-width modulation) control scheme, the ADP2441 offers excellent stability and transient response to minimize the output voltage ripple. The switching frequency of the regulator can be adjusted from 300 kHz to 1 MHz. The new regulator also offers precision enable, voltage tracking and power-good features to enable a simple and reliable start-up sequence. System reliability and protection are enhanced further through over-current protection, under-voltage lockout and thermal shutdown. The ADP2441 operates over the −40°C to +125°C junction temperature range and is available in compact 3 mm × 3 mm 12-lead LFCSP package. Analog Devices’ integrated power management switching regulators are also supported by the ADIsimPower™ design tools, which makes selecting components, simulating power supply performance and building evaluation circuits easy and fast.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
