AC line adds two models in 4U
Asterion AC power sources have added Asterion 4503 that delivers AC and DC output power up to 4,500 VA or 4,500 W, and Asterion 6003 that delivered up to 6,000 VA or 6,000 W. Both intelligent, modular units have an intuitive touchscreen interface, come in a 4U chassis, and can supply single- or three-phase output power. Asterion offers AC and DC output voltage ranges up to 400 Vac and 500 Vdc, while load and line regulation are ±0.025% and ±0.015%, respectively.
They also feature iX2 current-doubling technology that increases available output current up to two times the rated output current as output voltage decreases from maximum value to one half maximum value. This allows Asterion to maintain maximum power through the widest range of voltages.
Asterion comes with standard LXI LAN, USB, and RS-232 interfaces. An optional GPIB interface is also available. Intuitive Virtual Panels control GUI software comes bundled with the instrument for easy remote control from a computer. Included drivers let users quickly integrate the unit into ATE systems.

Couplers provide short-circuit protection
TG200 Trunkguard fieldbus device couplers enable implementation of fieldbuses by connecting multiple devices to a main trunk. They're available with four, eight or 10 fieldbus spurs, and can handle four to 20 fieldbus devices in Foundation fieldbus and Profibus PA networks. TG200 uses a fold-back technique to disconnect a shorted instrument from the fieldbus segment, preventing complete segment failure. This fold-back method uses a logic circuit on each spur, which detects a short in an instrument, disconnects that spur from the segment, and illuminates an LED that can be seen by maintenance personnel.
TG200 can be DIN-rail mounted or enclosed in IP66-rated, glass-reinforced polyester (GRP) or stainless steel enclosures. Up to 32 fieldbus devices can be accommodated by one segment. It also has ATEX/FM approvals for use in Zone 2 and Div 2 hazardous areas. Other models are available for other hazardous area classifications or other protection concepts.
TG200 also has a patented Automatic Segment Termination feature that eliminates problems caused by over- or under-termination by automatically activating when the device coupler determines it's the last fieldbus junction device in the segment. If a TG200 is disconnected from a segment accidentally or for maintenance, Automatic Segment Termination also detects the change, and terminates the segment at the proper coupler.
Power and NEC Class 2 for monitoring
Mico Pro intelligent current monitor has a modular design that lets users build systems to suit specific applications.
