ZF’s KNX RF Training Kit for Training Centers B

y the end of 2019, the KNX Association has given the target that KNX RF should be added to the KNX Basic

Course by all European training centres. Therefore, all certified training centres in Europe will use at least one KNX RF switch and one KNX RF media coupler. For this purpose, ZF Friedrichshafen, TAPKO

Component distribution defies ailing market

situation continues to weaken. After two years of surprisingly good results, the first signs of market stagnation are now also becoming apparent in the German component distribution sector. Nevertheless, the turnover of companies organised in the German Association of Component Distribution (Fachverband Bauelemente- Distribution, FBDi e.V.) grew by 4% to 922 million euros. However, orders dropped by close to 17% to 832 million euros, which equates to a book-to-bill ratio of 0.9. In the large product segments, growth in passive components continued at an above-average rate with 21.4% (to 114 million euros), followed by semiconductors, which were up by 3.5% to 664 million euros. All other product areas, including electromechanics (-4.1% to 89 million euros), were down. As a result, there was a slight shift in favour of passive components (12%) and semiconductors (72%) in terms of the percentage share of the overall market.

Technologies and Voltus are cooperating to offer a KNX RF-S training kit as a perfect basis for training centers to start with KNX RF. The partners have composed a basic kit (Voltus part number: 1692969), which consists of a KNX RF switch with programming adapter from ZF, compatible design parts and a KNX RF media coupler. The pushbutton module AFIM-1010 from ZF is the worldwide first KNX RF switch module with its own power supply that is configurable via the ETS5. The incorporated energy generator produces enough energy to generate KNX RF telegrams. The interface to existing KNX TP installations is managed by the KNX RF media coupler.

Socket your BGA’s with Selwyn Electronics…. T

he Interconnection Specialists, Selwyn Electronics are pleased to offer an extensive range of Ball Grid Array

(BGA) socket and adaptor systems. From 1.27mm down to 0.3mm pitch versions and solutions

for terminating BGA, LGA, QFN, LCC and QFP devices, Selwyn can offer an economical method of device validation and development where soldering the device to the PCB is not practical. Alongside the low insertion force socketing systems, is

range of adaptors onto which the device can be soldered and then loaded into a socket or pinned out to a custom footprint, this also subjects the device to a lower thermal stress level than soldering direct to a PCB. If you can provide the details of your device, we can provide a socket/adaptor solution for you.
