Fujitsu Develops Optical Switch That Cuts Power Consumption by Half
Kawasaki, Nov 10, 2010 - Fujitsu Laboratories Limited today announced that it has been able to halve the power consumption of an optical waveguide switch based on silicon photonics* through the world's first use of fine-patterned silicon germanium (SiGe) for this application, rather than conventional silicon (Si). This achievement will allow for high-speed optical switches capable of operating...Read More »
Diaphragm Level Switch offers optional protective cover.
With Hycar-® rubber nitrile cover, Binatrol-® Model G Series can be used with abrasive dry materials. Surface mounted switch monitors high, low, and intermediate levels of powder and bulk solids in storage bins, hoppers, silos, and vessels. Bulk material contacting unit transfers force to internal lever arm assembly, which then causes dry contact SPDT 15 A switch to be activated. Common...Read More »
Slotted Optical Switch features low-profile design.
Model OPB200 optically-triggered switch contains 890 nm infrared LED and phototransistor paired in 0.200 x 0.320 x 0.400 in. opaque plastic housing. When no object is present in slot, output phototransistor conducts current to maintain circuit, and when object enters slot, output switches to off state to interrupt circuit. Forward voltage is 1.7 V at IF of 200 mA, with reverse current of 100 -µA...Read More »
Overflow Switch evacuates condensate from AC systems.
Featuring integral pump, EZ Trap-® UltraSwitch Model EZT-356 helps prevent property damage from condensate drain pan overflows on residential and commercial air conditioners. When connected to air conditioner's overflow outlet with 1 in. dia PVC fitting, self-evacuating unit uses stainless steel electronic probes to sense rise in condensate levels caused by blocked outlet. Blocked drain pans are...Read More »
