    Choosing between a Porsche 911 and a 4-wheel drive Jeep for an expedition through the South American rainforest is easy. Selecting the appropriate power supply isn’t always so simple. In this article from Florian Haas of TRACO Power, learn how to go beyond the basic questions around input and output voltages, regulations, and environmental conditions, to choosing the right components to deliver power.

    One way to ensure the air indoors is clean is through the use of an air purifier. While there are several types of air purification systems on the market today using different methods and technologies to trap or eradicate contaminants, all purification systems share one thing in common. Each device needs to move air in order for it to be cleaned. Learn how to choose the right type of air mover and what style of motor is best to drive it.

  3. Current Challenges Purchasing Power Supplies

    Leave a Comment

    Sager Electronics recently asked its power sales engineers and sales team to list the five key topics their customers face when purchasing power supplies. The response was common across the Sager Power Systems organization: tariffs, lead times, warranties, safety regulations and transportation costs. In this recent editorial featured in Electronics Sourcing North America, Sager’s PSEs address these topics and how purchasing a good quality power supply can make all the difference – both operationally and financially.

  4. Switch-Mode Power Supply (SMPS) Emissions Filtering: Attenuation vs. Leakage Trade-Off

    Leave a Comment

    Designing a power system for medical devices not only requires meeting the electrical requirements for the system, but also requires understanding the relationship between the attenuation of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and the reduction of leakage currents. The power supply is typically one of the main sources for both EMI and leakage current within a medical device. TT Electronics’ Engineering Manager Dylan Howes discusses the relationship between EMI and leakage currents within the power supply, some methods for reducing both without impacting the other, and how choosing the right power supply can save time and money.

  5. Innovative Baseplate Cooling Design

    Leave a Comment

    The power density of AC/DC converter modules is increasing, but often requires high airflow rates to achieve their stated performance. However, forced cooling using mechanical fans brings reliability, noise and dust pollution issues. Baseplate cooling solves all of these problems, but only if the converter is specially designed from the outset to utilize conducted cooling measures, such as the new RACM230-G and RACM550-G series from RECOM, which delivers high power in a small form-factor along with a long list of other useful features.

  6. Are Delivery Robots the Future of Home Delivery?

    Leave a Comment

    Recently, U.S. regulators have granted permission for certain autonomous vehicle companies to start deploying low-speed electric delivery vehicles, also known as Delivery Robots or BOTs. In today’s current environment, there is a clear appeal to less human-involved food and package delivery – with an estimate that food and grocery delivery revenue is set to grow steadily and reach $200 billion by 2025. Autonomous delivery vehicles enable a future where everything comes to you directly on-demand. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic small sidewalk robots were gaining traction. In general these sidewalk robots move slowly are light-weight and do not present a risk to pedestrians.
