Bourns Inc. has expanded its audio component product line with four new components that aid in the design and assembly of mixing consoles and peripheral equipment in the professional audio industry. Applications include professional audio, video, broadcast and lighting mixing consoles, as well as support peripheral equipment applications such as signal processors, amplifiers, and speaker systems.
Pro audio components include:
- Model PEL12 series encoder with illuminated shaft: A 12 mm encoder that contains a clear shaft and is illuminated with internal LEDs. Multiple LED color options, with single, dual and triple LED options are available. A momentary push switch is standard with dual and triple LED versions. Datasheet
- Model PEC11L: An 11-mm low-profile incremental encoder offering a momentary push switch option. This contacting encoder provides 100,000 cycles of rotational life in a small and robust package with a wide operating temperature range, which is suitable for use indoors and outdoors. Datasheet
- Model PEC09: A 9-mm encoder featuring a momentary push switch option. This contacting encoder brings additional space savings to portable mixing consoles and associated peripheral equipment. Datasheet
- Model PRS11S: A surface mount potentiometer in an 11mm square package that simplifies production board assembly by eliminating the need for wave or hand soldering after surface mount products have been mounted on a PC board. This potentiometer is designed for compact mixing boards where all components are mounted on a single PC board. Datasheet
Pricing: Model PEL12 is priced at $1.25 to $2.67; Model PEC11L, $0.81 to $0.85; Model PEC09, $0.93 to $1.52; and Model PRS11S, $1.41 to $1.53 all in 5,000 piece quantities.
Availability: Samples and production quantities of all four components are available now.
