Crouzet SQ75 DC Brushless Motors Application

crouzet1

Crouzet water proof and dust proof SQ75 Smart Motion is the perfect choice to motorized golf AGVs with its communication capabilities and security features.

 

Golf players are largely creatures of habit. Each player is following a specific routine in which the range session takes a big part. Daily, thousands of balls are stroked on the Olympics driving range.

Therefore, efficiently collecting, cleaning and returning golf balls to the players on the driving range is a must. On the field, AGVs are taking the lead to run the golf driving range. A robot can mow the grass, collect balls, bring them to the washing machine, recharge the batteries and repeat the loop 24/7 silently.

E-T-A Appliance Inlet Modules for 3120-N Circuit Breaker / Switch Combination

Systematic reduction of components is a major reason for a successful cost-saving design. And fewer components normally help save space and allow for designing compact products.

The appliance inlet module X3120-B combines three functions within a single component: A C14 appliance inlet, a rocker switch and resettable overcurrent protection. In this module the two latter functions are provided by E-T-A’s wellproven 3120-N circuit breaker/switch combination.

Schurter RTS Thermal Fuse – Improved Protection of Power Semiconductors

Schurter Logo1.jpg

RTS Tripping Temperature > 175°C

Improved Protection of Power Semiconductors
• Protects power semiconductors from thermal runaway
• SMD reflow solderable up to 260 °C
• Tested for usage up to 60 V
• Integrated current measuring sensor (shunt)

Schurter RTS thermal fuse, successfully launched in 2018, gets a new variant with a tripping temperature of >175°C. The RTS is a particularly compact overtemperature protection device for power semiconductors in SMD technology for highest demands.

RTS stands for Reflowable Thermal Switch. It was developed to protect highly integrated power semiconductors from overheating. Prior to mechanical activation, the new thermal fuse can be soldered on conventional reflow soldering machines with profiles up to 260 °C.

Protection Against Thermal Runaway
Thermal runaway refers to the overheating of a power semiconductor due to a self-reinforcing, heat-producing process. One of the reasons is the trend towards increasing power density and miniaturization of electronic circuits. The RTS protects these power semiconductors against thermal runaway. In such an event, the thermal fuse acts as a fail-safe device and reliably interrupts the circuit from as early as 175 °C and thus addresses the operating temperatures of common power semiconductors even better.

Minimal Footprint
The new overtemperature protection device comes in the same minimal dimensions and maximum breaking capacity despite its additional shunt functionality. On its small 6.6 x 8.8 mm footprint the RTS can handle operating currents of up to 130 A and rated voltages of up to 60 VDC.

Integrated Current Measuring Sensor (Shunt)
The shunt version has an integrated resistance with particularly low temperature dependence. This resistance, known as a shunt, enables precise current measurement and enables an additional – non-thermal – circuit protection, e.g. via a controller.

Cynergy3 IWPTLU Series – Low Range Industrial Wireless Pressure Transducer

           Cynergy3_logo.jpg

The IWPTLU Wireless Pressure Transducer is a cost effective replacement to a traditionally wired pressure transducer that offers the advantages of a low-cost installation in inaccessible and expensive installation environments.

It is easily paired to the compatible IWR family of single- or five-channel wireless receivers thus offering a “plug and play” solution to your pressure measurement applications.

The instrument uses a piezo-resistive silicon sensor mounted within a 316 stainless steel housing giving excellent media compatibility for the harshest of applications.

The IWPT sensor can be used with either an IWR-1 or IWR-5 receiver. A line-of-sight range of up to 1640 ft is possible depending on the wireless receiver used. (refer to datasheets IWR-1 & IWR-5 for further information)

Each device is temperature compensated, calibrated and supplied with a traceable serial number.
