Infineon Introduces 5th Generation thinQ!™ SiC Schottky Barrier Diodes Delivering Market Leading Efficiency at Attractive Price-Performance Ratio

Infineon today announces the expansion of its SiC (Silicon Carbide) portfolio with the introduction of the 650V thinQ! ™ SiC Schottky Barrier Diodes Generation 5.

Infineon’s proprietary diffusion soldering process, already introduced with Generation 3, is now combined with a new, more compact design as well as latest advancements in thin wafer technology bringing improved thermal characteristics and a Figure of Merit (Q c x V f) in the order of 30% lower with respect to the preceding Infineon SiC diode families. The result is a series of products delivering improved efficiency in PFC and Boost stages over all load conditions with respect to all previous thinQ! ™ generations. The Generation 5 products are targeted for use in high-end Server and Telecom SMPS (Switched-Mode Power Supply), PC Silverbox and Lighting applications, Solar Inverters and UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems. With the new generation, these applications not only benefit from improved efficiency, but also from reduced EMI (Electromagnetic Interference), increased system reliability and cost/size savings due to reduced cooling requirements.

“Infineon has significantly improved and expanded the portfolio since the first introduction of its SiC Schottky diodes in 2001. SiC diodes are differentiating products, shaping the future of green energy,” says Jan-Willem Reynaerts, Product Segment Head High Voltage Power Conversion at Infineon Technologies. “The Generation 5 enables further improvements in system efficiency and power density compared to previous generations, in combination with an attractive price-performance ratio.”

The low capacitive charge (Q c) values of Generation 3 combined with the forward voltage (V f) levels of Generation 2 allow Generation 5 to deliver utmost efficiency levels in PFC circuits. The new family has a higher breakdown voltage level: 650V instead of the 600V of Generation 2 and 3, matching the latest releases in CoolMOS™ technology. This feature provides higher safety margins in applications like Solar Inverters and in challenging SMPS environments. Generation 5 offers moreover a high robustness against surge currents and a broader portfolio including products with both higher current ratings and new packages, such as TO-247 and ThinPAK.

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 Engin…

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 power…

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.
