Schroff plug-in kits come with IET or XL handle for high insertion and extraction forces Pentair has expanded its portfolio of complete kits for Schroff plug-in units to include kits with the so-called IET handle or an XL handle for very high insertion and extraction forces. The kits consist of a front panel, one or two handles (top and/ or bottom) and fixing and shielding elements. The design of the plug-in units with the IET handle makes them particularly well-suited for telecommunications applications, where large numbers of cables must be run and thus only limited space is available between the cabinet door and plug-in unit. This handle is suitable for insertion and extraction forces of up to 700 N per pair. Complete kits with IET handles are available as 3U/4 HP, 3U/8 HP and 3U/12 HP, also as 6U/4 HP, 6U/8 HP and 6U/12 HP with U front panel and textile gasketing. Plug-in units with IET handle are suitable for coding and can be used in all VME64x, VPX, VXS and CompactPCI applications. The kits with the XL handle are suitable for insertion and extraction forces of up to 1500 N per pair and are available in sizes 6U/4HP, 6U/8 HP and 6 HE/12 HP. Schroff www.schroff.co.uk Follow-us on @EETimesEurope Snap-Lock LED driver cartridge offers quick-change serviceability Journée Lighting has expanded its intellectual property portfolio with the introduction of the patented Snap-Lock LED Driver Cartridge and Field-Replaceable Linear LED Modules. Invented by Clayton Alexander, CEO of Journée Lighting and creator of the Lotus, the industry’s first highbrightness LED track light, the new modules claim breakthrough solutions, enabling the creation of sustainable and serviceable LED light fixtures. LEDs offer a number of advantages over incandescent, fluorescent, and high intensity discharge bulbs, however their installation makes it hard to replace the LEDs without extensive removal of the entire lighting unit. Journée’s Linear LED Module can be easily detached from its heat sink with no tools, as well as provide for effective dissipation of the heat generated by the LED light module. With the linear LED module, the heat sink and socket are a permanent part of the fixture, and the linear LED module is quick and easy to install. It offers multiple beam angle options and is available in multiple lengths. The linear light bulb pops in and out of the socket and can be used for various high-brightness linear lighting applications. Designed to replace dual T5 HO lamp applications, Journée Lighting’s new linear LED modules can deliver over 2,000 lumens per foot. Journée Lighting www.journeelighting.com SMD True sinewave clock oscillator delivers -170 dBc/Hz of noise floor at 1MHz offset The CCSS-945 crystal oscillator from Crystek Crystals Corporation provides -170 dBc/Hz of noise floor at 1MHz offset. The close-in phase noise performance is -105 dBc/Hz typical at 10Hz offset. This high-performance clock oscillator is available in the industry standard 9x14mm SMD package and is engineered to MIL-STD-883 and MILSTD 202 specifications. The CCSS-945 generates frequencies between 10 MHz and 125 MHz, with output level of +5 dBm minimum into 50 Ohms and harmonics lower than -25dBc. The CCSS-945 consumes 30mA maximum at 5.0 volts and has no sub-harmonics. The device is suitable for applications requiring ultra-low noise performance similar to more expensive OCXO crystal oscillators. Extended temperature operating range of -40°C to +85°C and other custom specifications are also available.
