8-bit digital phase shifters offer 360 degrees variable phase shift Pasternack has released a new series of 8-bit digital phase shifters which are programmable over a full 360° range and can produce a discrete set of phase states of up to 255 total steps with 1.4° increments with a high level of accuracy and minimal phase shift error. These building block components cover broadband microwave and millimeter wave frequencies and are suitable for aerospace and defense radar and EW applications which involve phased-array antennas, phase discriminators, beam forming networks and RF communication systems. Pasternack’s digital phase shifters have a programmable 8-bit TTL logic interface where phase states can be precisely controlled. The highly integrated hybrid MIC design architecture offers the benefit of greater immunity to noise on control lines and gives more uniform performance from unit to unit, achieves a flatter phase response over a wider frequency bandwidth with higher power handling and improved linearity performance. Four new models are available, covering frequency bands that range from 0.5 to 37 GHz. Typical phase shift error ranges from +/- 0.9 to +/- 5 degrees over 8 binary increments with fast switching speed performance from 30 to 450ns. Maximum input (CW) power varies from +10 dBm to +30 dBm depending on the model. The compact packages are environmentally sealed and feature field replaceable SMA or 2.92mm connectors and subminiature D multi-pin connectors for the power/logic controls. Pasternack www.pasternack.com Bluetooth adapter speeds data exchange with mobile terminal devices The Bluetooth adapter from Phoenix Contact enables data exchange between interface products and mobile terminal devices. Wireless connections enable more convenient control and regulation processes in industrial applications. The adapter is available as an accessory for Mini Analog Pro, Mini Analog, PLC logic, and Interface System Gateways products. Depending on the device type, it is either connected via the μUSB or S-PORT interface. If a PC or laptop is used for configuration, the accompanying PC adapter should also be used to ensure error-free communication. It is connected to a free USB connection on the PC. A corresponding driver is included in the software solutions of the devices to be programmed. Free apps are also available for the Mini Analog Pro and PLC logic product ranges, which can be downloaded from the respective stores for Android and iOS. They can be used to parameterize and monitor the devices. Users can request process values quickly and easily from operational systems and access the application directly. Phoenix Contact www.phoenixcontact.com Wire termination pins and receptacles with built-in solder cup Mill-Max is expanding its line of wire termination products by introducing six new pins and receptacles, three mated pairs, which facilitate the wire attachment process. Each features a solder cup for easy and efficient soldering and is precision-machined to provide the consistent and reliable interconnections expected of Mill-Max products. These mated pairs of pins and receptacles are suitable for use in cable and wire harness applications and, as they all incorporate press-fit features on the barrels, are perfect for assembling into connector configurations per specification. Each pair is designed to support either 20, 16 or 14 AWG wires. The receptacles are a two piece construction with a precision-machined outer shell and stamped beryllium copper internal contact. Like all Mill-Max receptacles they are capable of multiple insertion and extraction cycles and are rated to carry current matching that of the wire sizes the solder cups are designed to accept. The pins and receptacle shells are plated pure tin, matte finish, ready to accept solder. The receptacle inner contact is gold- plated, 30 micro inches, for durability and conductivity. Other plating options are available upon request. Mill-Max www.mill-max.com 120 000-lumens single LED COB module offers low thermal resistance Flip Chip Opto has introduced the Apollo 1200 Chip On Board (COB), a high performance LED module based on Flip Chip Opto’s patented 3-Pad LED Flip Chip and Pillar MCPCB technologies. The Apollo 1200’s both junction temperature and thermal decay are minimized due to the device’s low 0.006°C/W thermal resistance, allowing more than 120 000 lumens to be emitted from a single LED COB module. The new Apollo 1200 high performance COB modules enable energy-efficient LED technology to replace metal halide lamps in extremely high power lighting applications such as high mast, stadium lighting, airport and shipping terminal lighting, maritime lighting, and more. Flip Chip Opto’s patented 3-Pad Flip Chip and Pillar MCPCB technologies enable Apollo 1200 to perform high power lighting with low thermal resistance. Unlike conventional LED modules that must dissipate LED heat through MCPCB’s thermal-resistant dielectric layer, Flip Chip Opto’s 3-Pad technology creates an extra thermal pad beside two electrode pads, and uses it to couple the heat directly from LED into the metal core of the underlying MCPCB. The thermal performance allows the Apollo 1200 to achieve the lumen output between 107 080 and 121 680 lumens at 1200 Watt depending on the choice of color temperature (CCT) and color rendering index (CRI). Standard CCT values include 2700K, 3000K, 4000K, 5000K and 5700K along with CRI value as 70+, 80+, 90+ and 95+. In addition, 95+ of R9 and R12 are also available upon request.
