Panasonic – Chip-type solid polymer capacitors offer highest capacitance in their class

Pg9_Panasonic_thumb

Panasonic Industry Europe has added two new series to its SP-Cap family of conductive polymer aluminium capacitors, providing higher capacitance and better ripple-current performance in devices housed in D-case sizes. As polymer capacitors do not require voltage derating, unlike tantalum capacitors, an SP-Cap part rated at 6.3V can act as a direct replacement for a […]

Panasonic – Pyroelectric passive infrared sensor offers improved radial sensitivity

Panasonic has developed a special lens which improves the radial sensitivity of pyroelectric PIR sensors. The wide-angle models in the EKMCxxx and EKMBxxx PaPIR sensor families featuring the patented lens are intended for use in both wired and battery-powered applications. The superior optical characteristics of the new lens give a large detection angle of 150° […]
