Wolfspeed, a Cree Company, continues its innovation in silicon carbide (SiC) power device technology and packaging with the introduction of the industry's first 1700V SiC MOSFET offered in an optimized surface mount package designed for commercial use in auxiliary power supplies in high voltage power inverter systems. The higher blocking voltage enables design engineers to replace lower rated silicon MOSFETs with the new SiC MOSFETs, delivering higher efficiency, simplified driver circuitry, and lower thermal dissipation, and resulting in lower total system costs.

The new SMD package, specifically designed for high voltage MOSFETs, has a small footprint with a wide creepage distance: 7mm between drain and source. This is made possible by the small die size and high blocking capability of Wolfspeed SiC planar MOS technology. The new package also includes a separate driver source connection, which reduces gate ringing and provides clean gate signals.

Application of the new 1700V SiC MOSFET is anticipated in auxiliary power supplies within high power inverters such as solar power inverters, motor drives, UPS equipment, wind-energy converters, and traction power systems which typically buck down DC voltages to operate system logic, protection circuitry, displays, network interface, and cooling fans. They can also be used in the power supplies of three-phase e-meters, or in any converter application that requires high blocking voltages and low capacitance.

Designated the C2M1000170J, the new 1700V SiC MOSFET features an avalanche rating greater than 1800V, and RDS(on) of 1. These characteristics ensure reliable performance in flyback converter circuits, including those in noisy electrical environments, such as those found in high-power inverters. By enabling the design of single-switch flyback topologies from input voltages spanning 200V to 1000V, the 1700V SiC MOSFET simplifies the complex drive and snubber circuit elements required for silicon devices.

Macro Sensors Radiation Resistant LVDT Linear Position Sensors provide accurate feedback of control valve position within nuclear power generation plants. Constructed of stainless steel, the HSTAR 750 Series of Hermetically Sealed LVDT Linear Position Sensors can be specified to withstand exposure to radiation at 3x107 Rads for 40 years.

In nuclear power plants, radiation levels can be 100 Mega Rads. As radiation values often exceed the limits of sensor internal electronics, the sensing element of Macro Sensors AC-operated, Radiation Resistant LVDTs are segregated from the electronic circuitry and operate with remotely-located electronics that power the sensor and amplify and demodulate its output. In the extreme conditions of nuclear power plants, the distance required between the sensor and electronics can range up to several hundred feet, limiting the use of inductive and magnetic technologies. As a result, LVDTs are more commonly used in power generation with extreme environments due to their robustness and high Mean Time Between Failures.

Operating within the harsh environment of a nuclear power plant, Macro Sensors HSTAR 750 Series LVDT Linear Position Sensors provide highly accurate position feedback of valve position, supplying output to remote electronics or into a computer-based data acquisition system for statistical process control. Available in ranges of ±0.050 inch (±1.25 mm) to ±10.0 inches (±250 mm), the LVDT sensors feature high resolution, excellent repeatability, and low hysteresis as well as the highest sensitivity consistent with good linearity. Electrical termination of the HSTAR 750 Series LVDTs is made through a sealed radial connector located near one end. The radial connector results in a through-bore design that permits access to either or both ends of the unit's core for better mechanical support and core guidance, and easier cleanout in dusty or dirty locations. The radial connector also has a shorter installed length, making the length of the Radiation Resistant LVDT Linear Position Sensors at least 2" shorter than comparable units with an axially mounted connector for easier installation in tight spaces.

Siemens has launched the SPPA-T3000 R7.2, a new release of its power plant control system. This new release focuses even more on the human-machine interface (HMI). New functions and simplified operations will help control room personnel perform their day-to-day work more efficiently and more effectively, and react reliably and more quickly in critical situations. The new SPPA-T3000 R7.2 will be part of all of Siemens' new power generation control solutions and can also be integrated or retrofitted to existing control systems.

The new features in the SPPA-T3000 R7.2 include integrated functions like shift management, condition monitoring of the power plant components and diagnostics tools, alarm displays, classification of messages, alarm indicators and customizable display of the functions.

Daily shift handovers are managed intelligently and efficiently using R7.2. During a shift changeover, operators are given a rapid up-to-date overview of the condition of the plant, alarm messages, as well as the shift schedule and available resources. Pending repairs and open tasks can be added to the task list of the following shift with just a single mouse-click, thus saving time, reducing the error rate and promoting safety.

The "Diagnostic Recommended" function reports the smallest unexpected changes in condition even before DCS limit values are reached. A click of the mouse opens a text field with root-cause analysis to help to remedy the problem. Further diagnostics tools, called "Advanced diagnostics," can be integrated and allow a more detailed fault analysis. By providing a more transparent picture of the plant's current and emerging condition, these two functions help to increase plant availability.

Michell Instruments has launched its latest quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) moisture analyzer for demanding process applications, where reliable and accurate readings of low moisture levels are critical.

The QMA601 process moisture analyzer uses the latest generation of this technology, which gives it a lower detection limit of 0.1ppmV and an upper range of 2000ppmV. The QMA601 also features a built-in auto calibration function - traceable to NPL and NIST - where an integral moisture generator provides a reference which is used to verify the measurements to ensure user confidence. In addition to this, precise temperature control of the moisture generator, sensor and flow control devices keeps the analyzer stable independent of changes to the ambient conditions.

The analyzer is easy to install, use and maintain. It features a full-color touch-screen interface which allows interrogation and operation in situ, with no need for a hot-works permit. All data logging and readings are easily visible, and the main display also incorporates real-time trend graphing and alarm indicators.

Field service is also uncomplicated: the desiccant dryer is easy to remove and replace on the sampling panel. The moisture generator has an average life span of 3 years before replacement is required and the analyzer will therefore perform reliably for many years with just basic maintenance and housekeeping. A full range of service spares are also available.

The analyzer is fully certified for use in hazardous areas around the world, with accreditations from ATEX, IECEx and cCSAus.

Antaira Technologies LMP-1204G-SFP series has been designed to fulfill outdoor industrial application environments.

Antaira Technologies' LMP-1204G-SFP series is a cost effective 12-port industrial gigabit PoE+ managed Ethernet switch line with a 48~55VDC power input. Each unit is designed with eight 10/100/1000Tx gigabit ports that are IEEE 802.3at/af compliant (PoE+/PoE) with a PoE power output up to 30W per port and four dual rate 100/1000Tx SFP slots for fiber connectivity. Four fiber ports allows for the implementation of a fiber optic ring as well as a separate fiber home run. With a 24 Gigabit backplane speed, the LMP-1204G-SFP supports Jumbo Frames and wide bandwidth for large Ethernet data packet transmissions. These switches are also made with high density port counts for edge-level connectivity solutions. The LMP-1204G-SFP product series provides high EFT, surge (2,000VDC) and ESD (6,000VDC) protection. These units are built to support a dual power input design with reverse polarity protection, and there is also a built-in relay warning function to alert maintainers when any ports break or power failures occur. This makes it ideal for applications in a harsh environment requiring high reliability and distance extension.

This product series is pre-loaded with "Layer 2" network management software that supports an ease of use Web Console or Telnet through the serial console by CLI configuration. All Antaira managed switches provide the ring network redundancy function with STP/RSTP/MSTP and the ITU-T G.8032 (ERPS - Ethernet Ring Protection Switch) protocol which supports a <50ms network recovery time, eliminating the compatibility issue for any existing network concerns. The advanced network filtering and security functions, IGMP, VLAN, QoS, SNMP, Port lock, RMON, Modbus TCP and 802.1X/HTTPS/SSH/SSL increase determinism and improve network management for remote SCADA systems or control networks. Plus, the advanced PoE ping alarm software function allows users to recycle power on any remote powered device (PD) through PoE ports. The external USB2.0 port allows users to export and save all the configuration settings. Lastly, the flexible "custom label" feature allows networking planners to name each connection port. By naming each port, the networking planners can easily manage remote field devices.

CMR Group introduced a series of high performance temperature sensors for dedicated applications in the nuclear power industry.

The range brings together four different sensor series, all of which are K3 or K3ad environmentally compliant for the ambient temperature monitoring of fluid, gas and bearing temperatures in the nuclear industry.

CMR's AN sensor series is designed for the temperature measurement of high pressure fluids and aggressive gaseous fluids used in nuclear power generation, although they can also be used effectively with non-pressurised fluids.

For more conventional measurement of ambient temperatures to very low or sub-zero levels in damp or refrigerated atmospheres, and ventilation ducts, the AMB sensor series is recommended.

For temperature measurements associated with alternators, pumps, steam and gas turbine bearings and other rotary machine bearings, two CMR sensor options are available. These are the BS6 nuclear sensor with an insulated platinum resistance temperature detector (RTD) for use in harsh environments, and the special BCI6 type K thermocouple sensor for bearing temperature measurement on rotating/reciprocating machines.
