Mouser Electronics Expands C&D Technologies Product Portfolio

Includes the first auto-dimming, daylight-readable, LED-display digital panel meter.

Mansfield, Texas, USA - June 13, 2007 - Mouser Electronics, Inc., known for its rapid introduction of the newest products, today announced it has expanded its C&D Technologies portfolio to include the DMS-30DR series daylight-readable digital panel meters, the NMJ series DC/DC converters, and the 5000 series of common mode chokes.

C&D Technologies is the first to market with an auto-dimming, daylight-readable, LED display digital panel meter. The DMS-30DR series of large, 0.56-inch high, super-bright red LEDs are readable in direct sunlight without the need for special filters or shading devices. These devices can be used in very high ambient light conditions, but can also dim themselves for poorer light. Characters on the DMS-30DR series can be read at viewing angles of up to 180° in both vertical and horizontal planes.

C&D's NMJ series of low-power DC/DC converters includes eight new single output models. The world's smallest UL60950 safety standard-approved 1W converters are housed in fully encapsulated, 7-pin SIP packages with a footprint of just 1.91cm2. These converters are ideal for applications that demand a miniature, safety-approved solution.

The 5000 series of surface-mount common mode chokes by C&D provides line filtering for designers of power converters looking to reduce unwanted common mode noise in EMC-sensitive applications. These devices are ideal for low-current DC input switching power supplies and telecom applications due to inductance values ranging from 0.47mH to 4.7mH, a DC current rating of up to 700mA, and attenuation capability at frequencies up to 100MHz.

Both the design engineering community and our suppliers rely on Mouser to supply the newest products available to the marketplace, according to Barry McConnell, Mouser Vice President of Product Marketing, and by stocking new products like these from C&D Technologies, Mouser is able to fulfill its commitment to both suppliers and design engineers alike.
