Researchers are developing layered oxides for zinc-ion batteries, in a study that seeks to overcome the issues associated with scaling up lithium-ion batteries.
Mornsun has developed an ultrathin range of DC/DC converters in order to meet the demands of a diverse range of applications.
Mornsun has extended its 24 V isolated, regulated DC/DC converters with a 100 W series. The URF24_QB-100WR3 series DC/DC converters meet EN62368 and EN50155 standards, with EMI meeting CISPR22/EN55022 Class B.
Mornsun's 20 W range of DC/DC converters, the URE1D_LD-20WR3 series, has been added due to market demand for dual-output devices (positive and negative). The converters provide a wide input voltage range of 40–160 VDC due to input voltages of 72, 96 and 110 V used in the railway industry.
Mornsun's URB_S-6WR3 and VRB_S-6WR3 are isolated, 6 W, compact DC/DC converters. They offer input under-voltage, output short-current and over-current protection.
A newly discovered cathode material is said to enable magnesium batteries with higher energy density, as well as advances in safety, cost and performance, in comparison to their lithium-ion counterparts.
Vicor has released its next generation of DCMs, with a family of wide input range (43–154 V), 36 x 23 mm ChiPs with power levels up to 240 W and 93% efficiency, targeted at rail transportation and infrastructure applications.
Researchers have developed a lithium-ion battery with impressive flexibility, high energy density and stable voltage, no matter how it is flexed or twisted.
Maxim is enabling a safe, smart car of the future with the MAX17843 battery management system (BMS) — a 12-channel, high-voltage, smart sensor data acquisition device featuring robust communications and comprehensive diagnostics.
Researchers have made significant efficiency improvements to the technology used to generate solar fuels, involving the direct conversion of energy from sunlight into a usable fuel.
The Magellan Power ESU Series of utility-scale energy storage products combines smart functionality and connectivity with rugged power electronics to offer a flexible, programmable, durable and easy-to-install range of energy storage products for generation and distribution applications.
The Mornsun TLAxx-03KCAN and TLAxx-03K485 series are 3 W AC/DC power supplies with integrated CAN or RS485 transceivers that take their power directly from the main AC or DC supply line (85–305 VAC/100–430 VDC) and can be used with either AC or DC in a dual-use application.
US researchers have lowered the risk of a lithium-ion battery failing during a car accident by adding slits as perforations along the electrodes.
With the help of a $3.45 million CRC-P grant, Australian researchers are partnering with industry to commercialise batteries based on graphene oxide (GO).
