The 3 W series offers both 4:1 and 2:1 ultrawide input voltage ranges, in surface mount and DIP mounting, with 1500 VDC isolation voltage and efficiencies up to 83%.
The use of inductive charging, while highly convenient, risks depleting the life of mobile phones using typical lithium-ion batteries.
Researchers used X-ray computed tomography to visualise in real time how cracks form near the edges of interfaces between materials in solid-state batteries.
A newly created formula more than doubles the energy a battery can carry without changing the weight, according to its designers.
The ADEL System range of DIN rail mount DC UPS power supplies incorporate a DIN rail mounting switchmode power supply and UPS controller into a single unit. Users can also buy a maintenance-free battery pack and holder to create a fully integrated UPS solution.
Schneider Electric has introduced the Galaxy VS — an efficient, modular, easy-to-deploy, 10–100 kW, three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) designed to meet the critical power requirements of IT, commercial and industrial facilities.
Hong Kong researchers have developed a 'Textile Lithium Battery' that offers a stable, durable and safe energy supply for wearable electronics.
A PhD student from Loughborough University has helped shed light (no pun intended) on a solar panel puzzle that could lead to more efficient devices being developed.
Technology Dynamics has introduced the TTST-5000 Series of high DC input voltage DC-DC converters. The series features an input range of 375–420 VDC, making it suitable for harsh industrial, railway, military, automation, specialty vehicle, scientific and telecom applications.
Artesyn Embedded Technologies has announced a three-slot 50 V/12 kW module for its iHP digital configurable high power system. The configurable intelligent high power system is designed for a wide range of medical and industrial applications.
Due to its excellent electrical conductivity and light and thin characteristics, single-layer graphene film is ideal for electronics that require batteries.
Researchers have discovered that caffeine can increase the efficiency of perovskite solar cells, enhancing their thermal stability and ability to convert light to electricity.
Japanese researchers have developed a new complex hydride lithium superionic conductor that could result in all-solid-state batteries with the highest energy density to date.
