New Low CxR PhotoMOS with optimized on-resistance for currents of up to 1A
Panasonic's new Low CxR PhotoMOS offer the smallest housings combined with the lowest on-resistance for maximum continuous load currents of up to 1A. The new CxR10 PhotoMOS relays belong to the successful Low CxR series PhotoMOS, with an optimized, i.e. low, product of C and R. Especially measurement applications require the smallest possible output capacitance C at the open contact and at the same time a low on-resistance R at the closed contact for high-frequency loads. Optimizing the capacitance and the resistance component in the transistors makes this possible.
Servo drives for superior performance: MINAS A5N
The Ethernet-based servo drives of the MINAS A5N series are not only extremely compact, but also ideally suited for highly dynamic applications. Thanks to its high transmission speed and sampling rate, RTEX (Realtime Express), the fast, real-time Ethernet bus for automation, is particularly well suited for highly dynamic single and multiple axis positioning tasks such as found in pick-and-place applications, labeling machines and bottling plants. RTEX transfers status information, for example warnings or alarm codes, current position, speed, torque, position deviations, mechanical and electric rotor angle, inputs and outputs, and many more.
New BACnet fieldbus slave unit unites building systems engineering with the world of automation
The ability to collect counter and measurement values as well as other vital operating data for heating, air circulation and conditioning is a prerequisite for developing open, interoperable and functional building automation applications. This includes devices at the field level, e.g. sensors and motor drives, as well as at the automation and management level (central building control system).
Fast, robust and reliable: Panasonic laser markers for the automotive industry
Many of the parts that make up an automobile have to be marked individually and permanently for reasons of traceability and quality control. These components are made of various material, e.g. metal, resin, ceramic and organic substances, and may be subjected to high thermal stresses or be in constant contact with aggressive mediums such as oil or gasoline. Laser marking can meet all these requirements, which is why the use of laser markers in the automotive industry has increased drastically in the last few years.
Power feed-in management for renewable energy sources
The European Union has decreed that 20 percent of the overall domestic energy consumption must come from renewable energy sources by the year 2020. The EU guideline to this effect is also known as the RES Directive.
