Intelligent UPS for AC Applications

Phoenix Contact’s Quint UPS-IQ is now available for 120 V AC/240 V AC applications. Like the other Quint IQ models, the new version uses intelligent battery management to provide advanced diagnostics.

The AC unit automatically detects the input voltage of either 120 V AC or 240 V AC, making the product suitable for global use. To simplify system troubleshooting or startup, the AC UPS can start independent of an AC input. This allows users to power up an industrial PC or controller during a blackout to simplify system diagnostics.

The Quint UPS-IQ uses intelligent battery management to provide advanced diagnostics. The user can easily see critical data about the power supply’s voltage condition, the UPS parameters and the battery health at any time. The “IQ Technology” provides adaptive battery management on several levels:
  • State of Charge (SOC): Indicates the remaining back-up time and level of charge on the battery. Users can quickly see the amount of available time left.
  • State of Health (SOH): Indicates the remaining service life of the battery module. The power supply records the battery module’s history and indicates when the battery needs to be replaced.
  • State of Function (SOF): Indicates the capacity of the battery module. The available capacity of the battery is provided giving indication as to how well the battery is accepting the charge and if the full capacity is still available.
The AC model uses the same batteries as the other products in the Quint UPS-IQ product range. Using these new batteries allows for easy, tool-less battery replacement for easier maintenance.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
