Excelitas Technologies, Waltham, MA, has expanded its OmniCure® product line with a higher power UV LED curing system for fiber optic coatings. The new OmniCure AC8225-F+ features a custom optical design that provides optical performance over longer working distances, a typical requirement for fiber coating processes. The compact, air-cooled UV LED curing system can be easily integrated into existing or new production lines and is ideal for optical fiber coating or marking applications. The system provides high peak irradiance of up to 16 W/cm2 at 10–15 mm working distances, as well as excellent uniformity for rapid, even curing with greatly reduced power consumption compared with traditional lamp solutions or other LED products. An optional replaceable window is available.

Analog Front End

Analog Devices, Norwood, MA, has announced a low-power biopotential analog front end (AFE), designed to enable development of smaller, lighter, and less-obtrusive cardiac monitoring devices with longer battery life. The AD8233 AFE is a fully integrated, single-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) front end designed in a single, compact, easy-to-use component. The out-of-the-box AFE eliminates the need to design ECG front ends from individual components. The AFE’s 2.0 1.7 mm size enables the design of wearable health devices that are smaller, lighter, and easier to wear. The AFE’s low microamp-range power consumption results in greatly extended battery life.
