Dear U.S. Sensor Sales Representatives,
As you are probably aware, Littelfuse announced the acquisition of U.S. Sensor on Monday, July 10th. With the acquisition close, we will now be able to conduct a rationalization of the Americas Rep Firms for the combined company. A high-level evaluation of the U.S. Sensor Rep Firms is now underway and we will receive input from the U.S. Sensor Sales Team. The goal is to complete this evaluation over the next two to four weeks. If we have any questions, we will reach out to you.
During this time, business should be conducted as usual, and you will continue to be paid under the U.S. Sensor contract. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Rodney Magsanide.
We appreciate your patience as we work through this rationalization and we look forward to bringing you additional information over the next few weeks.
Rodney Magsanide – Sales Manager – U.S. Sensor

The latest in our Powered by Artesyn series of customer application stories.
A developer of laser fluorescence display technology, which breaks through the limits of traditional light sources such as LED and overcomes the shortcomings of RGB laser displays, needed a small, reliable power source for use in engineering projectors.
They found Artesyn’s LCC600 series of AC-DC power supplies ideal for their needs with its compact 4 x 9 inch (101 x 228 mm) footprint, fanless operation, 600W output and 93% typical efficiency.
A strong relationship with the customer and undeniable product quality ensured Artesyn’s LCC600 series has replaced a less reliable unit from a competitor.
Power inductors are incredibly important magnetic components, found in everything from household appliances to the national power grid – any application that requires control of current.
In the third installment of our Guide to Inductors eBook series titled Introduction to Power Inductors, the experts at Triad Magnetics expand upon the information necessary to understand power inductors, including:

A customer approached Artesyn with a requirement for a cost effective AC-DC power supply for their new immune detection and diagnostic device.
This product needed to offer reliable and stable performance. Artesyn’s sales engineers recommended the LCM600Q-T-N enclosed unit, part of the LCM series of distributed power, front-end AC-DC power supplies, which ranges from 300 to 1500 watts output power. With industrial and medical safety approvals, these digitally-controlled power supplies can deliver up to 600 watts and offer versatile bulk power for a wide variety of industrial, medical, military and process automation applications.
The customer was impressed with the efficiency of the device (typically 89%) and its reliability, considering how cost-effective it is in the market.
Thanks to excellent technical advice from Artesyn’s field sales engineers, and local support from Artesyn’s channel partner, the customer is now considering Artesyn as it develops new instruments for laboratories, food testing and gene detection.
