Wind power and photovoltaic systems are based on powerful AC-DC and DC-AC converters. They require reliable power capacitors for AC filtering and voltage stabilization in the DC link circuits. TDK offers a complete portfolio of power capacitors customized for these issues with a wide range of voltages and capacitances.
In this article, learn about medical devices' associated risk guidelines, the means of protection mandatory for their use, their specific use environments, and the electromagnetic compatibility issues that should be considered when designing their power supplies.
Rohde & Schwarz has paired the outstanding performance of its established R&S RTP oscilloscope with an enhanced user interface and a larger display. The result is an even more flexible oscilloscope in a compact format with a modern look and feel that continues to deliver high-performance signal integrity in real time.
Batteries are to have a central role in the future of sustainable energy and mobility. Affordable, high-quality lithium battery packs are needed in diverse kWh ratings to power vehicles ranging from eBikes, drones, and small city cars, to large electric vehicles (EVs), trucks and buses. On the other hand, large, container-sized battery arrays are needed as energy storage for home, commercial, and utility-grade applications to bring stability to tomorrow’s green-powered grids.
The high precision of piezoresistive sensors and their ability to measure absolute, gauge and differential pressure make them suitable for a wide range of applications in the increasingly demanding requirements for industrial and automotive segment. Core component of each pressure sensor is the sensing element or the so-called DIE, which converts the pressure into an electrical output.
The recently released Revolve hybrid microscope from Echo Laboratories – which has generated considerable interest because it combines the functionality
of both upright and inverted microscopes into one instrument – supports the use of Negative-Stiffness vibration isolation when the microscope is being used in vibration-compromised environments.
The characteristics of these types of hybrid drives present a practical solution when a position needs to be detected with high precision and moved repeatedly over long travel ranges, or when a target position needs to be reached with nanometer precision. Applications areas include precision movement of telescopes, measuring technology or surface inspection, semiconductor manufacturing, microscopy, and laser technology.
Since the release of the first commercial atomic force microscope (AFM) about 30 years ago, technology advances have steadily been implemented to improve their performance. Now, the most recent advance in ambient-temperature AFMs is making them more compact, portable and user-friendly, which is enabled by Negative-Stiffness vibration isolation.
