Comus New SMD Reed Relays

Comus

Comus International introduces their latest addition to our Reed Relay line. The new CGSM series offers superior reliability for the Instrumentation and automatic test equipment markets. With contact ratings up to 10 Watts and a 1 Amp carry current our new relay boasts an impressive 50% increase in power and capability over any similar size industry standard SMD packages presently being offered today. The new CGSM series takes practical advantage of Comus’ vertical manufacturing capabilities. Our Comus Technology BV reed switch is used exclusively in every reed relay.

The molded thermoset CGSM relay includes an external magnetic shield and internal coaxial shield (50Ω impedance matching) and is available in Gull and J-Bend configurations. The CGSM series is RoHS compliant and is capable to handle 260°C surface mount process temperatures.  With its low profile and small footprint, the CGSM is ideal for use in high density PCB layouts and high bandwidth applications. With the exponential advances in today’s technology, Automatic Test Equipment makers are continuously having to meet new challenges in order to serve demand. As such the performance boards for these testers are constantly being pushed to new limits and with this the need for new and innovative reed relays becomes self evident. The requirements of RF, stable contact resistance and fast signal switching in a robust, board space conscience package are an absolute must.

FEATURES

  • High reliability reed switch with Sputtered Ruthenium contacts for stable contact resistance and long life.
  • 10 W  1 Form A  available in Gull and J-Bend lead configurations.
  • Standard Coaxial Shield for RF applications up to 6 GHz.
  • External magnetic shield

A decade in the making. The first new thing to happen to reed switches in 50 years.

HSI

Revolutionary Function

All traditional reed switch forms work with an attractive force. Reed blades close in the presence of a magnet or magnetic force. With the true Form B, then blade alignment is such that the reed blades open in the presence of a magnet or magnetic force.

  • No external magnets are required to create the Form B device
  • It is not a Form A with a magnet, like other competitive switches
  • It is not a Form C with the normally-open lead cut off, like other competitive switches
  • Unlike competitive switches, the HSI true Form B cannot be overdriven with magnetism
  • Cannot be demagnetized, as there are no magnets attached to it in order to function
  • Can be operated inside of a ring magnet
  • In a sensor form it has extended operate distance versus traditional Form A and Form C devices
  • The sheer simplicity of the product makes it inherently more cost effective than other Form B products

Google Launches Smart Home IoT Protocol

Google

A powerful group of companies – including Google, through its Nest Labs subsidiary, Samsung Electronics, Freescale Semiconductor and ARM Holdings plc – have joined together to form the Thread Group and to launch Thread, an IP-based wireless networking protocol.

Others of the founding seven companies are Yale Security, Silicon Labs and Big Ass Fans, which was founded in 1999 and makes industrial, commercial and residential ceiling fans.

The mission of the Thread Group is to create a secure, low-power network for use in the home and by its connected products. Thread is already defined as an IPv6 networking protocol designed for 802.15.4 mesh networks and a version of Thread is already used in Nest products. It is based on 6LoWPAN, which stands for IPv6 over Wireless Personal Area Networks. The 6LoWPAN group has defined encapsulation and header compression mechanisms that allow IPv6 packets to be sent to and received from over IEEE802.15.4 based networks.
