Grayhill - 77 Series

Small and sealed rotary switch, the 77 Series. This compact rotary switch requires less than a quarter inch behind panel, making it ideal for handheld devices. Further, its MIL-rated resistance to moisture, sand and dust indicates that it is suitable for harsh, outdoor environments. 

Military handheld radios, night vision goggles and laser aiming devices all require rotary switches to select settings. Because the typical soldier carries more than one of these devices, size is an important consideration. The 77 Series rotary switch will fit on almost any device. Its diameter is only 0.5 inches and it requires just 0.18 inches of clearance; the smallest rotary available with this level of seal.

Universal Starline - Busway B1200

Supplying the highest amperage of the Starline Track Busway systems, the 250, 400, 800 & 1200 series powers many of today’s largest mission critical facilities. One of the main benefits of Starline is that it is an overhead power distribution system, meaning no jungle of cables and whips under the floor obstructing air flow. Also, the continuous access slot along the bus gives data centers the power to easily expand or reconfigure operations. 

Field-proven in data centers for decades, the maintenance-free, custom built Starline Track Busway also offers customizable plug-in units that are interchangeable between the three systems. The design of these plug-in units ensures a safe, constant connection to power- obtaining the continuous uptime that is so crucial to mission critical facilities.

TDK Lambda - DIN Rail Low Profile Power Supplies

TDK Corporation announces the introduction of the TDK-Lambda brand DRL AC-DC DIN Rail mount power supplies. With efficiencies of up to 90%, waste heat has been reduced, allowing the use of very narrow width package sizes ranging from 18mm for the 10W, to 72mm for the 100W model. Less space on the rail provides additional room for other components or the use of smaller enclosures. 


The DRL series is suitable for a wide range of industrial applications including building and factory automation, security, process control and test and measurement. The DRL series has an operating input range of 85 to 264Vac, and can withstand 300Vac for 5 seconds. The units have a Class II construction (double insulation) and do not require an earth ground connection. Input to output isolation is 3,000Vac. Four power levels and case sizes are offered - 10W, 30W, 60W and 100W – with a 24V output in all package sizes and a 12V output for the 10 to 60W versions. The 30 to 100W models have user adjustable outputs from either 12V to 15V or 24V to 28V.
