Linear Voice Coil Actuator

BEI Kimco, Vista, CA, has developed a new linear voice coil actuator (VCA) that provides extremely low hysteresis and low friction with precise and consistent bidirectional position control. Initially designed to meet the requirements of an anesthesia machine, the LAH15-19-000A VCA is suitable for other applications where low friction and high force accuracy are needed. Key to the VCA’s new low-friction design is a patent-pending symmetrical flex circuit that prevents friction caused by movement, thus ensuring consistent, reliable results. A solid brass ball cage with captured steel balls further reduces friction. The VCA achieves an operating performance with a hysteresis of 10 mN. The low-friction design can also be incorporated into the company’s standard and custom VCAs.

Pigment Wetting and Dispensing Agent

Solvay, Paris, France, has launched a wetting and dispersing agent for waterborne paints. Rhodoline® WA 265N was designed to address European and worldwide environmental and health requirements. Due to its toxicological profile and its very low VOC and SVOC levels, this new grade can participate in the eco-friendly programs such as the European Union’s Ecolabel. Because it has strong pigment wetting power, it is highly efficient, meaning that less dispersant is required to obtain excellent color development. It provides exceptional viscosity and shelf-life stability. This product is part of the company’s Rhodoline WA series, Rhodoline 3000 series, and Rhodoline 4000 series.

Gas Discharge Tube

Littelfuse, Chicago, IL, has introduced its first high voltage, surface-mount gas discharge tube with two squared terminals capable of withstanding surge currents of 3 kA @ 8/20 μs in a small form factor. The CG4 Series miniature tubes are high voltage (800–3000 V) devices designed for overvoltage protection for high-isolation applications. They help protect personnel, equipment, and circuitry from abnormally high voltages caused by lightning or electrical transients. The tubes dissipate voltage transients through a contained plasma gas. The series, which has high insulation resistance plus low capacitance and low leakage, is designed for applications that require the combination of a surface-mount form factor and medium surge capability.
