INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS ARE JUST THE BEGINNING Innovation, high-performance, quality and reliability are synonymous with the Molex brand. From high-speed and micro-miniature connectors to power connectors, Molex offers complete interconnect solutions for some of the world‘s most complex and demanding markets. Today, Molex is able to bring its wide-ranging knowledge to bear on electronics challenges in many of the world‘s most critical industries. Visit Molex at electronica in Munich and see the latest product developments on display for Datacom, Consumer, Automotive and Transportation, as well as Lighting industries Hall B4, Booth 137 www.molex.com Next generation aqueous hybrid ion battery delivers 40 percent more energy Aquion Energy, Inc., has unveiled the second generation of Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI) batteries and energy storage systems which are capable of delivering energy gains of up to 40 percent. The increased energy is achieved without an increase in the size or weight of either the S-Line Battery Stack or M-Line Battery Module product lines and directly translates into improved performance and delivered value in all of Aquion’s target applications. Aquion’s entire product line will see improvements with the second generation of AHI technology, including both the S-Line Battery Stack and MLine Battery Modules. At shorter four to eight hour discharge rates, systems will experience an energy increase of up to 40 percent. At longer 20 hour discharge rates the second generation S-Line Battery Stack will see a 24 percent increase in energy to 2.4 kilowatthours, while the new M-Line Battery Module will see a 16 percent increase, now totaling 25.5 kilowatt-hours. The substantial increase in energy was achieved through improved utilization of the active material within the AHI cells. Aquion AHI batteries are optimized for long charge and discharge cycles making them ideal for solar and other renewable energy storage applications. Aquion Energy, Inc. www.aquionenergy.com Front-end AC-DC PSU delivers 1300W Murata has added a 1300W model to its D1U3CS series of front-end AC-DC power supplies. The D1U3CS 1300 series has a 108 to 264 VAC universal input, is hot pluggable, has no minimum load requirement, and incorporates low-loss integral OR-ing FETs on its main 12 V output, for faulttolerant and N+1 redundant applications. With a power density of 23W per cubic inch, the power supply can achieve a typical conversion efficiency of 92% at half full load. The D1U3CS-W-1300F has a primary 12 VDC output and an optional auxiliary output of either 3.3 VDC, or 5.0 VDC for powering standby circuitry. Active power factor correction is used to minimise input harmonic current distortion and ensure compliance with the IEC61000- 3-2 standard, with a power factor of 0.99 typical. It accepts the universally available IEC C14 AC input power connector. Digitally programmable, both models are equipped with an I²C interface and support the industry-standard PMBus communications protocol. Both also contain a memory device (EEPROM) that is pre-programmed with data about the unit. Murata www.murata.com
