Current sensing resistors
KOA Speer Electronics offers two new current sensing resistors, the zero ohm SLZ and the
1W/2012 SLW07. The high current SLZ1 jumper
chip offers a rated current of 44A in a 2512 size. The
SLW07 has an enhanced high power rating of 1Watt
in a smaller package size of 2010.
KOA Speer’s SLZ1 and SLW07 both feature
a wide temperature range of -55°C to +180°C.
The SLZ1 has a max resistance of 0.5m and the
SLW07 is available in 0.5m ~100m in both 1 percent and 5 percent tolerances. The chips’ special
electrode shape easily absorbs thermal expansion
and shrinkage stress. Made with a fame retardant
molded construction providing high mechanical
stability, these resistors are suitable for refow,
wave and iron soldering.
The resistors are ideal in applications such as
DC to DC conversion and AC adaptors.

Automated test system
The new Intepro SemTest automated test system is the ideal solution for reliability and extended
lifetime testing of Power Semiconductors including
IGBT, MOSFET, SCR, Diode and Bipolar parts and
modules. This fully integrated solution meets the
of JEDEC standards and may
be used for
product development characterization. Sem Test is comprised of
a test system, thermal oven and test software with
optional chiller and cold plates.
The Intepro SemTest system performs a combination of thermal and electrical cycles to verify
new products, processes and materials including
Silicon Carbide based semiconductors or devices
designed to meet RoHS requirements. Sem Test is
Particulate emission sensor
The FilterSense Model PS 10 particulate fow/ emission sensor is engineered for harsh processes with high temperatures and high pressures.
It is designed for applications such as coal gasifca-tion, fuid bed reactors in the plastics industry, kilns,
high temperature carbon black and other combustion and incineration processes. Temperature ratings up to 1600F and pressure ratings to 1000PSI
Like all FilterSense particulate sensors there are
no active electronics in the sensor housing providing high reliability. The sensor is mounted remotely
to electronic control units that apply advanced digital signal processing to provide exceptional performance in the extreme conditions. Applications
include monitoring particulate emissions from
fabric flters and particulate fow in process pipes.

Schneider Electric launched its PowerLogic PM5000 series power meter. This newest
addition to the PowerLogic portfolio of power and
energy meters is engineered on a compact and
These high-ly-accurate, reliable meters are
compliant with all
applicable metering standards
- PM5100 and
are rated accuracy class 0.5S while PM5500 models are rated accuracy class 0.2S. With essential
features such as different communication and I/O
options, a battery-backed real-time clock, alarms,
multiple tariff schedules and data and event logging, the PM5000 series has all capabilities for energy cost allocation and sub-metering applications.
With internationalization language support,
these meters directly connect to networks rated up
to 690 V L-L without voltage transformers, reducing installation costs. Data logging capacities vary
across the range, and a DIN-mountable variant is
also available. The range-topping models provide
a fourth current input, onboard web pages for viewing real-time and stored information, enhanced
harmonics capabilities and dual Ethernet ports to
daisy chain meters together, saving installation
and wiring costs.

Remote racking system
Remote Solutions LLC announced a version of the Safe-T-Rack (STR) SR-U Battery-powered
Remote Racking System specifcally intended for the
nuclear power industry.
Compatible with ITE K600-K2000 circuit breakers,
this lightweight and portable system helps ensure
compliance with evolving arc fash mitigation regulations. Its unique “No Mod” design does not require
installation modifcations to the cubicle or breaker,
and thus eliminates the need for utilities to generate
costly design change documentation and post-mod-ifcation testing of OE equipment.
Safe-T-Rack is a fully automated, American
National Standards Institute (ANSI)-tested tool that
has redefned techniques for circuit breaker remote
racking and control. The latest addition to the STR
line, the SR-U Battery-powered Remote Racking
System, employs a Mil-Spec design and robust
self-diagnostic capabilities. The system offers rechargeable 28V battery powered for international
use, universal handheld controller and drive unit,
quick-change tool coupling, smart drive bracket design, and an endlessly expandable data-bus design.
The unit includes a standard 50-foot cable with optional extensions.
