New types of insulating tapes feature very good insulation properties, resistance, excellent adhesion and last but not least also a very convenient price.
In our product range can be found new types of insulating and other technical tapes of Electrix brand. In order to give you an easy orientation in them, we bring you their short description:
Professional highly elastic insulating tape from a plastified PVC, 0.19 mm thick with up to 49 kV/mm isolation strength. Resistant to moisture and dissolvents. Binder of the tape is based on the synthetic rubber and features an excellent adhesion. Applicable at -10 to + 85°C. The tape is 15mm wide and 20 m long.
Universal insulating tape from a plastified PVC, 0.13 mm thick. Resistant to moisture and dissolvents. Binder of the tape is based on the synthetic rubber and features an excellent adhesion. The tape is available in 5 widths, from 15 to 50 mm. In stock we keep the 15 mm wide and 10 m long type.
Self-vulcanizing water-resistant PIB based insulating tape, 0.76mm thick. Quickly vulcanizes and features up to 13,8 kV/mm isolation strength. Maximum dilatation is up to 600%. The tape is also ideal for insulation of thin cables in a wide temperature range from -30 to +80°C. It is available in 4 widths, from 19 to 50 mm. In stock we keep the 19 mm wide and 3.5 m long type.
Universal grey textile tape for binding of materials, insulations, sealing and fastening. Water-resistant and well adapting to uneven surface. The tape is usable up to +90 °C, strong, with an immediate adhesion. Thanks to a textile reinforcement, it is applicable even without cutting tools (the tape can be torn in a perpendicular direction). Available in 25, 35 and 50 mm widths. In stock we keep the 50 mm wide and 9 m long type.
Aluminium self-adhesion tape with a binder based on a modified rubber. Suitable for sealing, masking and assembly of insulations, in the air-conditioning and heating appliances. The tape has a high mechanical resistance, excellent adhesion and doesn´t peel off at low temperatures. A relatively soft aluminium foil easily adapts to uneven surface. Also acts as a good moisture barrier. Available in 5 widths, from 30 to 100 mm. In stock we keep the 48 mm wide and 10 m long type.
Double-sided foam tape. Universally usable for installation of various components. With a 1mm thickness, it easily adopts to uneven surface. In stock we keep the 25 mm wide and 5 m long type.
Thin double-sided tape. Universally usable on various for various materials and also for example at a production process – for a temporal fixing of a component for an easy subsequent application of a glue or sealant.

Accutronics has launched two new lithium-ion batteries in its Intellion series of credit card sized batteries. Designed to provide a high level of functionality and safety the CC2300 and CC3800 batteries allow integration of smart lithium ion battery into handheld portable products with minimal effort and cost.
The batteries feature an active electronic protection system that prevents them from being overcharged, over discharged or short circuited and to ensure that the battery will remain safe if externally abused. In addition, they have an impedance tracking fuel gauge that constantly tracks battery status, providing information such as remaining battery capacity, state of charge, run time to empty, battery voltage and temperature.

Friwo power supplies PP12 series extend the PP series family about a variant with a higher maximum power – 12 Watts.
Premium adapters Friwo meet stringent demands for safety, efficiency, EMC and a low power consumption in a standby mode. PP series represents small switch-mode power supplies – adapters, usable practically with any device with an appropriate power consumption. So far, versions with maximum power 3, 6 and 9 Watts were available. Novelty are the PP12 types, which further extend possibilities of usage of these adapters even for devices with a higher power consumption. Beside a usage for a full rated power they can be convenient also for creation of a power reserve for a possible future functionality extension of your device thus probably increasing of power consumption. Friwo power supplies are designed for a continuous full load current and they feature a continuous shortcut protection acting at about 20% overcurrent.
New PP12 types are available in 3 versions – with the 5.5/2.5 mm, 5.5/2.1 mm output DC connector and without an output connector, allowing to use various separately available secondary connectors (adaptors). Secondary connectors have a safety lock preventing an accidental disconnection.
