Cincon is glad to announce the new release of evaluation board for DC-DC brick converters. The evaluation boards are tools for users to run fast test of Cincon DC-DC brick converters. With the help of the evaluation boards, users would know more about the pin functions and the electrical properties of the DC-DC brick converters.
The majority of power supplies available in the market are predominantly engineered and certified under the OVC II category. Nonetheless, there is a notable uptick in real-world applications demanding OVC III products, especially in fields like industrial automation and electric vehicle (EV) charging. In this context, we provide a brief introduction to the various Overvoltage Categories (OVCs).
We've recently introduced an industrial M2 grade series of DC-DC converters, specifically designed for harsh environments, particularly in extremely cold weather conditions. These converters are well-suited for situations where low temperatures are prevalent, either due to high altitudes or latitudes. In such regions, the need for DC-DC converters that can withstand cold temperatures becomes paramount. Nevertheless, it's important to acknowledge that operating a DC-DC converter at -55°C presents numerous challenges, and doing so without any limitations can be quite demanding. Here are some examples of applications that may require DC-DC converters capable of operating below -40°C such as Arctic and Antarctic research and environmental monitoring instruments, transportation, telecom device, remote sensing and satellite ground station equipment, etc.
Over the past few years, Cincon has been a pioneer in the industry, providing diverse power solutions with cutting-edge technology such as fan-less and baseplate cooled power solutions that cover a wide power range. Since the launch of these products, Cincon has received much positive feedback from the market, and these products have been widely applied in various harsh environments or quiet places. As the demand for higher power wattage continues to rise, Cincon has dedicated the R&D energy to meeting these growing requirements. This time we upgraded the CFM500S with the built-in parallel feature (-pc version), making the CFM500S-PC a high efficiency, reliable, high power, and baseplate-cooled solution.
In the era of Industry 4.0, the traditional methods of production and assembly lines have given way to a prevalence of Robotic Arms and Mobile devices. Notably, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) have taken on significant responsibilities in tasks such as cargo pickup and delivery. These vehicles, built in with central processing units (CPUs) and sensors, are adept at tackling more complicated tasks instead of repeating routines. In this article, we will discuss the structure and applications of AGVs and AMRs.
