Mouser Electronics and Industrial Shields Sign Global Agreement

Leading NPI Distributor to Stock Innovative Open Source PLCs

fgNovember 4, 2019 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader empowering innovation, today announces a global distribution agreement with Industrial Shields, a fast-growing company that produces industrial automation electronic devices based on open source hardware electronics. The Industrial Shields product line now available from Mouser includes ARDBOX and M-DUINO families of Arduino-compatible industrial programmable logic controllers (PLCs).

“Industrial Shields’ high-quality PLCs and industrial automation devices provide the flexibility that design engineers need to speed time-to-market,” said Andy Kerr, Vice President, Supplier Management for Mouser Electronics. “Through this partnership, Mouser can bring Industrial Shields’ innovative open source products to an even larger customer base worldwide.”

“We are thrilled to enter this agreement with Mouser Electronics,” said Albert Prieto, CEO of Industrial Shields. “By partnering with Mouser, we can capitalize on their extensive distribution channel and best-in-class customer service.”

The Industrial Shields ARDBOX Analog 20 I/O and ARDBOX Relay 20 I/O industrial PLCs are based on Arduino Leonardo boards and offer up to 20 inputs/outputs (I/Os). The M-DUINO Ethernet Range industrial PLCs are based on Arduino Mega 2560 boards and offer up to 58 I/Os. The devices provide several communication ports — including Ethernet, USB, I2C, SPI, RS-232, and RS-485, with support for Mobus protocol on the 20 I/O devices — to allow flexibility and control. Both families of PLCs provide the possibility to expand up to 127 modules through I2C, resulting in 7,100 I/Os in master-slave connections.

Engineers can program all of the PLCs using the Arduino integrated development environment (IDE) via a USB port. The M-DUINO family PLCs are also programmable remotely through Ethernet connectivity. The M-DUINO and ARDBOX PLCs are compatible with each other, as well as with the Touchberry Pi panel displays.

TE Connectivity Announced Ultra Small Spring Fingers

TE Connectivity (TE)’snew ultra small spring fingers have one of the smallest footprints in the market to save valuable PCB space, allowing for use in a broad range of applications with space constraints across various industries.TE’s ultra small spring fingerscan save valuable PCB space with one of the smallest footprints in the market. Closed-loop contact design ensures reliable connection to the PCB, better normal force and higher current capacity (1.5A). Robust side wall minimizes over- compression. Special anti-lifting design can improve assembly e ciency by locking the tip of the contact within the sidewall of the spring  nger, which helps prevent the contact from getting caught on an operator’s glove during assembly. Pick-and-place area supports auto-assembly processes. It also offered in different heights and styles.As an authorized distributor for TE Connectivity, Heilind Asia provides TE’s products and also value added services. Heilind Asia supports both original equipment …

Battery Stack Monitor Maximizes Performance of Li-Ion Batteries in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

Cosimo CarrieroField Applications Engineer, Analog Devices, Inc.AbstractLithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries are a popular way to store energy in electric and hybrid vehicles. These batteries offer the highest energy density of any current battery technology, but to maximize performance, a battery monitoring system (BMS) is mandatory. A state-of-the-art BMS not only allows you to extract the highest quantity of charge from your battery pack, but also lets you manage the charge and discharge cycles in a safer way, which results in an extended life. Analog Devices provides a full portfolio of BMS devices with focus on accuracy and robust operation.Accurately measuring a battery’s state of charge (SOC) increases battery run time or decreases weight. A precise and stable device does not require factory calibration after PCB assembly. Stability over time improves safety and avoids warranty problems. A self-diagnostics feature helps reach the right automotive safety integrity level (ASIL). A batt…
