Once again, the Position Sensing and Gaging folks at CDI have bolstered their industry leading lineup of Precision Measurement products with the addition of dimensional measurement experts, Dorsey Metrology out of Poughkeepsie, NY. What does Dorsey Metrology bring to the CDI Gaging Party? Now that’s a fine question, but the better question might be: What DON’T they bring? When it comes to Dimensional Measurement Instrumentation, simply put.. “Dorsey brings it.” For starters, and maybe even the lesser known of all their incredible products, is the Optical Comparator by Dorsey. LookingRead More
In many applications it’s difficult or simply not feasible to monitor the actual fluid temperature in a closed system. This is especially true in after-market process control. The next best way to measure the temperature is by monitoring the temperature of the pipe in which the media is flowing. This is especially true in applications such as: gas boiler control, domestic water systems, air conditioners, radiator inlet-outlet, electric showers, vending machines, chiller and refrigeration units to name a few. Thermometrics/Amphenol has introduced the NTC Type JC Clip-On Pipe and SurfaceRead More

MEAN WELL introduces the LDD-L and LDD-H series of encapsulated module type DC-DC Buck converters for LED driving. With constant current mode output, LDD-L features a 9~36VDC input and 2~32VDC output while LDD-H possesses an even wider range of 9~56VDC input and 2~52VDC output. The LDD series is designed to be mounted on the system PCB of a lighting fixture. Their typical deployment is to connect to the output of CV (constant voltage) mode AC/DC LED power supplies providing a constant current to drive LEDs. For example, a typical LEDRead More

Mean Well Introduces SE-200/350 Series

MEAN WELL introduced the new generation of 210W and 350W single output enclosed type power supply ~ SE-200 and SE-350, to replace their existing models S-210(210W) and S-320(320W). With improved performance and a lower cost, SE-200/350 targets regions (like North America and Asia) where RoHS compliance and price are main concerns. To make the replacement easier for existing users, the new series are designed to offer the same features and dimensions as the old models. For instance, SE-200 has the same bottom case as S-210 (only adding more venting holesRead More
