The fast growing global hunger for electricity cannot be met in the future by traditional sources of energy such as coal, oil, and gas, while atomic energy is regarded with reluctance due to its inherent risks and the unsolved problem of nuclear waste.
But if you’re hoping to achieve optimal performance, there’s a job that must be completed before an adhesive is applied: surface preparation.
Aimtec just released a new series of AC-DC power converters, AMEOF5-JZ, designed to expedite and simplify industrial and commercial product design in a highly affordable solution while offering the smallest possible footprint.
Target applications include:
- Smart lighting control
- Building automation
- Test equipment
- Security systems
- High voltage PSUs
This new series of regulated converters is available in 5 watt configurations and is packaged in a miniature open frame SIP14 of only 1.65 x 0.54 x 0.79 inches (42.00 x 13.65 x 20.00 mm).
Features include: Input/output isolation of 3000 VAC, over current, over voltage and continuous short circuit protection and no-load power consumption less than 0.5 watt.
Max output current 0.42A
Output Type Single
Input Voltage 85~264VAC
Output Voltage 12V, ±3% max*(3.3V),
Input Output Isolation (VAC) 3K
Temperature range -25°C to +85°C
Standard models of the power supply are available with 3.3, 5, 9, 12, 15 and 24 VDC output, with a universal input of 85 to 264VAC, 47 to 63Hz, or 100 to 400 VDC. Operational temperature range of all models is -25ºC to 85ºC with full power range of 0 to 55ºC.
Aimtec is a global designer and manufacturer of modular AC/DC and DC/DC switching power supplies, including LED drivers. Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, with offices in Europe and Asia, the company is recognized for the unique features, quality and value of its power supplies.

The AEC, which is an abbreviation of the Automotive Electronics Council, is an industry organization promoting the standardization of reliability, or qualification standards, for automotive manufacturers originally, and automotive electronic component manufacturers subsequently. The AEC-Q series serves as the industry standard adopted for automotive electronic components, and the Q200 series focuses on passive components specifically.
Aimtec just released longer life AC-DC regulated converters, which are available in 1, 2 and 3 watt configurations and packaged in a miniature size of only 1.46 x 0.96 x 0.71 inches (37.00 x 24.50 x 18.00mm). The 3 new series, AME1-NJZ, AME2-NJZ and AME3-NJZ, were designed without the use of electrolytic capacitors.
There are several reasons companies will source products from Asia. Some are cost-related and others are technology-focused. Sourcing in Asia can substantially reduce your costs. Determining if it’s right for you depends on many factors including materials, labour costs, technology, and lead-times. Whether you are looking for passives, optoelectronics, electromechanical, connectors, timing devices, hardware, discretes/semiconductors or circuit protection, we'll help you determine if Asian sourcing is a sensible, low-cost alternative for your project.
Are smocks part of your ESD Control Program? While a person may be grounded using a wrist strap or other grounding methods, that does not mean that insulative clothing fabrics can dissipate a charge to that person’s skin and then to ground. Personnel clothing usually is electrically separate or isolated from the body. Garments that are used to establish the primary ground path for a person shall provide a resistance of less than 35 megohms from the person to the groundable point of the garment.
The AM6CW-FZ series is the newest addition to Aimtec’s 6 Watt DC to DC converter product line. This new converter is UL listed, operates with an ultra wide input of 4:1 (9-36, 18-75VDC) input ranges and is housed in a miniature 1x1 inch package. This versatile product is feature rich with input to output isolation of 1500 VDC, plus continuous short circuit protection, over voltage protection, over load protection, remote on / off control feature, plus with an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C (with derating starting at 60°C for 3.3 and 5V models and 70°C for all other models).

Winstar has just launched its Y Series family of TFT LCD display modules. The new Y Series now provides built in DC-DC multi-output power, whereas traditional TFT LCD modules do not, making it much easier for customers to design their own applications. The Y Series provides the same 40-pin uniformed FPC as traditional TFT LCD modules, and is available in 4 sizes: 3.5”, 4.3”, 5.7” and 7” display modules.
Thermal imaging using infrared provides a way to view automated systems to identify abnormally hot or cool areas or components. This is a powerful prevention and maintenance tool, as in the case with electrical equipment, equipment failure is preceded by a period of increased heat.
