STANDEX-MEDER ELECTRONICS ANNOUNCES SX41 SERIES PLANAR TRANSFORMERS

New series offers high performance in compact package for power conversion applications

Standex-Meder Electronics, a manufacturer of precise, reliable, and long-lasting miniature switches, sensors and relays, announces the SX41 Series of planar transformers for 500W-2KW applications. Available in standard or custom designs, the SX41 delivers high performance for power conversion applications in the welding, automotive, telecommunications, renewable energy, and aerospace industries.


Compact yet powerful, these transformers feature an enhanced core design to promote volumetric efficiency and thermal performance. A large core surface promotes heat transfer while minimizing AC resistance and proximity Cu loss, and an optimized core cross section lowers core loss. As a result, SX41 planar transformers can offer better power density and performance when compared to equivalent wire wound transformer designs.

The SX41 can handle up to 2KW of power, and like all Standex-Meder planar transformers, can be tailored to fit a customer's specific needs. With a worldwide network of manufacturing facilities, including TS16949 and AS9100 certified and ITAR registered sites, Standex-Meder is well-equipped to provide custom designs to meet any specialty application.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
