BEC stocks ARCOL HS Resistors with a market-leading balance of pulse power capability vs physical size

BEC Distribution, franchised distributor for ARCOL Resistors, has announced the stock availability of the HS series of high-power, aluminium-housed resistors which they believe offer a market-leading balance of pulse power capability versus physical size. For example, the HS300 has a power rating of 300W with a heatsink, and is packaged within an aluminium housing of just 128x42x46mm. Liquid cooling can provide a massive 600W-900W capability.

BEC Distribution believes that its stockholding of ARCOL Resistors is one of the largest worldwide, which they combine with high levels of customer support.

The ARCOL HS power resistors are manufactured using a high-quality wire-wound design to maximise this high pulse capability. For example, from high ambient temperatures the power dissipates linearly to zero. Ten standard wattages are offered, from 10W-300W. The HS resistors are manufactured in line with the requirements of MIL 18546 and IEC 115 and are RoHS compliant.

The HS power resistors are optimised for linearity, stability and reliability, making them suitable for many different applications including: snubber; braking resistor; inrush limiter; inverter/converter; and balancing resistor designs.

The ARCOL HS power resistors are designed and manufactured for easy assembly. The Ohmic resistance values vary from R005 to 100K depending on wattage size and the tolerances values for low O values are typically = R05 ±5% = R047 ±10%. The temperature coefficients are typically < 1K 100ppm standard > 1K 25ppm as standard. Many different electrical terminations are available.

BEC believes that its stockholding of TOKO components, PULS Power Supplies and ARCOL Resistors is one of the largest worldwide.

Record-Breaking 24V/10A Power Supply: 95% Efficiency, Only 39mm Wide

BEC Distribution has announced the availability of the new PULS 24V/10A DIN-Rail power supply – the CPS10. It’s raising the bar by using the latest power supply technology and sophisticated thermal design. It’s believed that this is the first time a DIN-Rail power supply of this power level, with single-phase global input and active PFC, has achieved an efficiency of 95%. This unprecedented low level of heat generation made a reduction in width by 35% from 60mm to 39mm possible.

Additionally, the CPS10 features a comprehensive range of features: full performance from -25°C to +60°C without derating; HiccupPLUS sophisticated power management to deliver 20% extra peak power and at the same time protect loads and wiring; and active input inrush current limiter for low input inrush current and a DC-OK signal to monitor the output voltage. The new remote on/off feature makes it simple and convenient to switch the power supply off, saving energy.

Weighing only 600g, the small CPS10 power supplies are exceptionally light, making them particularly suited to rugged applications needing shock and vibration resistance eg rough-terrain vehicles and wind power turbines. For the process machinery market, the products are approved according to ATEX/IECEx standards. A 12V version will follow soon.

BEC believes that its stockholding of TOKO components, PULS Power Supplies and ARCOL Resistors is one of the largest worldwide.
