Future Electronics Now Offering the NCP112x Series High Voltage Switching Regulators from ON Semi

Montreal, Canada – October 31, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced immediate availability of ON Semi’s NCP112x Series of high voltage switching regulators for offline SMPS.

The NCP1129, NCP1126 and NCP1124 can deliver up to 25W, 15W and 12W respectively and each generate a jittered 65kHz or 100kHz switching frequency, resulting in marked improvements in electromagnetic interference (EMI) performance. They integrate a fixed frequency peak current mode controller with a low on-resistance high voltage, 650V MOSFET.

The NCP112x devices all have a wide array of protective features including a 50ms timer-based auto-recovery short circuit protection function. Furthermore, short circuit fault conditions can be independently detected from the auxiliary winding voltage.

The NCP112x series regulators feature 650V avalanche rated MOSFET; frequency foldback down to 26kHz and skip cycle in light load conditions; 50ms timer-based auto-recovery short circuit protection; option for auto-recovery or latched short circuit protection; has less than 100mW stand-by power at high line; fixed frequency 65kHz or 100kHz current mode control operation; adjustable current limit with external resistor; frequency jittering in normal and frequency foldback modes; and come in Pb-free PDIP-7 packages.

Future Electronics to present wireless sensor network demonstration using MultiConnect Conduit IoT platform at Electronica 2014

Egham, UK – 23 October, 2014 – Future Electronics today invited prospective visitors to its stand A4.259 at Electronica (Munich, 11-14 November 2014) to view a demonstration of a wireless sensor network based on a comprehensive new communication platform for Internet of Things (IoT) systems.

The demonstration on the Future Electronics stand, A4-259, will feature the new MultiConnect® Conduit™ from MultiTech, available from Future Electronics in Q1 2015. The Conduit cellular gateway has the ability to manage thousands of end points, such as wireless mDot modules which feature Semtech’s LoRa™ long-range, low-power RF technology connected to sensor nodes. The mDots are able to transmit and receive data over a range up to 16km. Applications requiring deep in-building coverage can expect 3-6km coverage. The Conduit programmable gateway packages and aggregates the data over the cellular (mobile telephone) network to the user’s preferred data management platform.

On the Future Electronics stand, visitors will be able to view and handle four such mDot-enabled sensor nodes, which will measure temperature, pressure, ambient light and position. Each will be connected via a Conduit gateway to the internet. Real-time sensor measurements will be uploaded to a data management site hosted in the cloud.

This means, for instance, that visitors to the stand will be able to cover the ambient light sensor in their hand to reduce the detected light, hold the temperature sensor and see a rise in temperature, or to lift the pressure sensor up in the air, and see a reduction in air pressure captured in real time by the sensor live on an internet-enabled display.

Future Electronics’ Vice-President Engineering and Vertical Markets, Stephen Carr, said: ‘For makers of distributed sensor networks, the connectivity element of the design can often be the most challenging. That’s why Future Electronics is showing the MultiConnect Conduit to visitors to Electronica: it provides a ready-made, plug-and-play platform for moving data from remote sensors via wired or wireless connections to any supported data management platform in the cloud.’

Future Electronics Offers the DRC3 Series of Solid State Contactors from Crydom

Montreal, Canada – October 21, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, offers Crydom’s DRC3 Series of solid state contactors.

The Solicon DRC3 Series are solid state contactors intended for frequently switching on and off three phase loads up to 5 HP, 480 VAC 7.6 Amps.They are available in both contactor versionsand reversing contactor versions.

The Solicon Contactor DRC3P is available in either instantaneous turn-on (for Motor Control) or zero voltage turn-on (for Resistive Loads). It is available in either 2 or 3 controlled leg versions. The 2 legs control version is particularly suitable for motor control circuits where the neutral conductor is not utilized.

The Solicon Reversing Contactor DRC3R includes an interlockcontrol that allows only off, forward and reverse operation in a safe mode while providing high space saving; it switches instantaneously upon application of the control voltage unless an instantaneous change of direction is commanded, then it will delay the direction change by 100msec in order to prevent simultaneous forward and reverse operations.

All the models of the Solicon DRC3 Series combine the benefits and advantages of a solid state contactor with the functionality and simplicity of use of an electromechanical contactor thanks to the proprietary thermal management technology (Patented) and complete electrical insulation (no grounding required); the embedded auxiliary contacts,normally open and/or normally closed are intended to be used at 18-280Vac. Three different control voltages are available in order to cover most the applications. All models include overvoltage protection.
