Ametherm New NTC Thermistor Probes

Ametherm Introduces New NTC Thermistor Probe Assembly With Ring Lug Designed for Easy and Secure Li-Ion Battery Terminal Mounting


NTC Thermistor Probe Provides Accurate Temperature Sensing for EV Batteries, Off-Grid Energy Storage, and Alternative Energy Applications
June, 2018 – Ametherm introduced a new NTC thermistor probe assembly for high-accuracy temperature sensing and measurement in Li-ion battery power applications. The device combines a specially designed ring lug for battery mounting with a high dielectric voltage rating of 4000 VAC.

Ametherm’s NTC thermistors are manufactured from a specially formulated metal oxide ceramic material that is extremely accurate in sensing temperature. The PANR 103395-342 probe assembly released today utilizes this same material while offering a half-inch stud-insulated ring lug that enables easy and secure mounting to Li-ion battery terminals. The device is ideal for electric vehicle (EV) batteries, off-grid energy storage, and alternative energy applications.

Providing a high-stability replacement for less-accurate thermocouples, the PANR 103395-342 experiences minimal drift from its initial electrical values. The device offers resistance at 25C of 10 kOhm, beta of 3950K, dissipation constant of 8 mW/C, thermal time constant of 10.0 s, and an operating temperature range of – 50C to + 180C. The RoHS-compliant assembly features 18-AWG stranded Teflon-insulated lead wires.
The PANR 103395-342 is available direct or through IBS Electronics.

Tariff for Electronic components

Effective July 6, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) plans to proceed with “Section 301” Customs tariff increase of 25% on goods imported from China. These tariffs include nearly every component that goes into the manufacture of any piece of electronic hardware, from resistors to capacitors, semiconductors to microcontrollers, and even the raw components that are turned into printed circuit boards.

Under Section 301 Action, USTR Releases Proposed Tariff List on Chinese Products. All components produced in China and included in Section 301 will be subject to the new tariffs effective July 6. For the purpose of clarification, components manufactured in Taiwan and Hong Kong are not considered within the scope of Section 301, therefore are not subject to the additional tariff.

We recognize the entire industry is trying to understand the most economical supply chain route, while adhering to the guidelines of the law. The IBS Electronics Group is now being notified by suppliers as to how they intend to pass through the new tariffs.

Since many suppliers produce components in multiple countries it is unknown until time of receipt/shipment if the Country of Origin on the components being shipped will be China. For this reason our account managers and salespeople may not always know the Country of Origin at time of order placement. Because of the magnitude of the tariffs if the Country of Origin on the components being shipped to your company is China, IBS will have to begin passing through these tariffs on the effective date. We will continue to communicate with you as circumstances warrant further updates.

NXP Introduces New High Power RF Products for 5G Networks

 High Power RF Products for 5G Networks

NXP Semiconductors Powers 5G Communications

NXP is driving innovation with its expanded cellular infrastructure portfolio of GaN and silicon laterally diffused metal oxide semiconductor (Si-LDMOS) products that deliver industry leading performance in a compact footprint to enable next-generation 5G cellular networks.

Spectrum expansion, higher-order modulation, carrier aggregation, full-dimension beam forming and other enablers of 5G connectivity will require an expanded base of technologies to support enhanced mobile broadband connectivity, says NXP. With spectrum usage and network footprints, multiple-input multiple output (MIMO) technologies from four transmit (4TX) antennas to 64 TX and higher will be employed. The future of 5G networks will depend on GaN and Si-LDMOS technologies, NXP notes.

The breadth of the company’s RF Power technologies—which include GaN, silicon-LDMOS, SiGe, and GaAs—allows product options for 5G that span frequency and power spectrums with varying levels of integration. This wide array of options, combined with the products that NXP builds for digital computing, and baseband processing, makes NXP a unique supplier of end-to-end 5G solutions.

5G is more than low-band front-end modules and switches. NXP has all RF technologies to fully address and enable 5G — from wireless infrastructure to mobile devices to the gallium nitride technologies to make them happen.

From a consumer perspective, We expect online gaming,movie streaming,augmented and virtual reality (AR/ VR) will leverage 5G’s dramatically improved throughput and low latency for quicker response times. Also other unique use cases such as immersive sporting events.

LEDtronics All-Weather Filament-look LED String Lights Run Circles around the Incandescent Competition

Ledtronics LED StringLEDtronics® announces its new All-Weather, UL-Listed Filament-look LED String Lights that answer the demands for brilliant, mood-setting lighting with all the benefits of energy-efficient LED technology.

These versatile LED string lights are ideal for applications such as special outdoor occasions, garden or backyard parties, or providing a decorative flair to outdoor restaurant porches, shopping plazas, hotel pool areas, decks, driveways and patios, as well as for sign perimeter lighting.

The 48-foot, IP65-rated waterproof black string cord holds 24 1.5-watt S14 LED lamps with a bulb separation of 2 feet. It features industrial-grade outer neoprene rubber sockets that endure years of inclement weather. Industry-leading 18-gauge wiring allows connecting up to 45 strands. Steel cables can be threaded through the built-in loops above each socket to support and position the light strings in variously decorative patterns.

Securely packaged in a rugged carton, the 24 twin-filament S14 LED lamps come in a choice of warm, 2200K “filament” white or 2700K “halogen” white. They feature a clear glass lens and an E26 base, operate on 120VAC, and provide a 360° omnidirectional illumination of 150 lumens each—an efficacy of 100 lumens per watt!

The IP65-rated, moisture-resistant LED lamps boast a wide operating temperature range of -40°F to +122°F — ideal for outdoor, inclement-weather applications. Consuming only 1.5 watts each (36W total string), they offer energy savings of up to 50% over incandescent lamps, and lumen maintenance of over 70% at more than 15,000 hours.

LED lamps produce almost no heat and require 80 to 90% less operating power than equivalent incandescent bulbs, making them as friendly to the environment as they are to the operating budget. Unlike tungsten or halogen lamps, these LED lamps do not use any toxic metals and thus are RoHS compliant.

Both the S14 LED lamps and the 48-ft black neoprene string cord are UL-listed and come with a 2-year and 3-year unconditional LEDtronics warranty, respectively.

The LEDtronics All-Weather, UL-Listed, Filament-look LED String Lights are available through LEDtronics distributors, and quantity discounts are available.
