Whether in automotive motor or control systems, industrial power supply solutions or countless other applications: Performant technology coming in slim and miniaturized product designs seems to be more state-of-the-art than ever before.     For meeting those specific requirements, Panasonic Industry Europe just launched the FN series, a low ESR Aluminum Electrolytic capacitors Surface Mount Type. Thus, it’s the latest member of the already successfully established product family ...
Multimeters are portable allrounders – and the less weight they have, the better, albeit every one of the comprised measuring channels of these multifunctional tools needs to be switched by a separate relay.   Here, Panasonic Industry’s CC series of TSON relays as the miniaturized offspring of the successful Low CxR MOSFET series seem to be the perfect choice, being as compact as 1,8 x 1,95 x 0,8 millimeters. The considerably low product of C and R of the output transistors i ...
Panasonic Industry Europe’s new SFM series is sort of a blueprint going the next step towards the future of safety relay technology after 30 years in the market - and a vast portfolio of 4- and 8-pole safety relays, The SFM relays with forcibly guided contacts according to EN 61810-3 ensure the safe operation of machinery and other automation, building or transportation equipment. This prevents people from being hurt and assets from being damaged. By using mechanically linked contacts tha ...
Whether looking at domestic car chargers or solar-power systems: The increasing automation and electrification of our daily lives is leading to a growing demand for safe, robust and energy-efficient ways to switch relatively large amounts of power.   The challenge for designers who want – or rather have to - use high-voltage relays is that to date many of them have been relatively large, standalone components, designed to be mounted as a separate unit with wired connections to a con ...
The Raspberry Pi Foundation replaced two 1206 MLCCs with just one of Panasonic Industry Europe’s Polymer SP capacitors that contributes to the performance and reliability of the newly developed Raspberry Pi 4. With a compact housing of only 7.3 x 4.3 x 1.9 mm and a capacitance value of 100µF as well as low ESR characteristics (15mΩ max.) the SP capacitor helped optimizing the design processes as well as the capabilities of the Raspberry Pi 4. MLCCs cannot achieve the same high c ...
Panasonic Industry is pleased to introduce vibration proof type of Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor Technology. This vibration-proof types can withstand acceleration up to 30G which is three times higher than standard parts and a key feature for automotive applications. The new variants are available with a diameter of 6.3 mm or greater. With a reduction of potting and adhesive fixation, this vibration-proof contributes to the simplification of your manufacturing process. All products of the intr ...
Sensors and sensor systems are set to take on a key role in production in the future. Attention is focused here especially on smart sensors, which offer signal conditioning and processing. Panasonic Industry explains the potential applications and core features that have to be provided in this context   The German cabinet presented the topic of Smart Factory/Industry 4.0 in its “New High-Tech Strategy for Germany” in 2014 as a global challenge for innovation leaders and include ...
Technology advancements in recent years have caused an explosion of smart and highly connected computing devices that are in a small form factor. Nearly all of us have encountered some sort of communication device, whether it be in entertainment, health, or lifestyle Their success has been predicted by human imagination for decades: they helped James Bond 007 when no help was in sight, on Star Trek everyone was using them all the time and the clueless Inspector Gadget was – thanks to the ...
Team from TUM Munich wins trophy at the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition for the third consecutive time with components and solutions by Panasonic Industry on board.   On July 22nd WARR Hyperloop did it again – the team from the Technical University of Munich won the Hyperloop Pod Competition for the third consecutive time. The event was hosted by SpaceX and its founder, Elon Musk, at the company’s Hawthorne, California headquarters, as it has been since its inauguration. But ...
Taking into account price/cost, Tantalum capacitors had been avoided under many circumstances, while favoring Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs). Due to the massive MLCC shortage on the market its time to dismantle old prejudices.   Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 12 months, the following news will not be new to you - yet affecting your life tremendously, especially if you are working as an engineer or a supply chain manager: Back at the beginning of 2017, major m ...
LEDs are more and more lighting the way on the global lighting market – to create successful and withstanding applications you have to pay attention to your design – and especially to your capacitors.   It’s always good to exemplify the relevance of your claim with some scientific backup – in regards to the relevance of the LED market we would like to start like this: According to the study 'Global LED Lighting Market (2017 Update)', the LED lighting market which al ...
Or in the slightly changed words of Asia: What Happens in the 'Heat of the Moment' with Lithium Ion Batteries?   Lithium Batteries and Heat Managemet - More Heat Than Light?   Compared to other frequently used batteries, lithium ion batteries offer high energy and power density, have a long service life and are made from low-pollution materials. As such, lithium batteries are increasingly used in all areas of everyday life, primarily as a self-contained power supply independent fr ...
Medical equipment and devices must be designed with rigorous standards to function in environments where patient safety and product reliability are critical. Today, there is a great demand for innovative, feature-rich, and affordable electronic equipment to be used in diagnostic labs, hospitals and clinics, as well as for consumer selfcare. Engineers are constantly challenged to deploy differentiating leading-edge electronics that demonstrably improve patient care in a cost-effective manner, for ...
Electric double layer capacitors (EDLC) - also known as super-capacitors or ultra-capacitors, have moved increasingly into research and development’s focus recently because of their power delivery performance that perfectly fills the gap between dielectric capacitors and traditional batteries. This attention is predominantly coming from applications in portable electronics devices, electric vehicles, bulk electricity storage at power stations and “load levelling” of renewable s ...
Aluminium electrolytic capacitors assume a special position among the various types of capacitors since their principle of operation relies, in part, on electrochemical processes. The advantages of aluminium electrolytic capacitors that have led to their wide application range are their high volumetric efficiency (i.e. capacitance per unit volume), which enables the production of capacitors with up to one Farad capacitance, and the fact that an aluminium electrolytic capacitor provides a high ri ...
