5'' Capacitive Type Touch Panel

Leveraging its technical strengths, Varitronix has released a new 5-inch capacitive touch panel that addresses our goal of providing the total display solution. The integration of a projected capacitive touch panel into our product portfolio complements the product offering to meet a wider range of needs from the diverse nature of our customers business.

The capacitive touch panel easily detects the light movements of finger or capacitive stylus across the surface and supports multi-touch with a maximum of 10 points.

The device can be operated by medical glove or normal glove, and even under wet surface. Other features including fast response, high transparency, wide operating temperature (-30°C to +85°C) together with robust interface make the panel ideal to be applied in automotive and industrial sectors besides handheld devices and mobile applications.

This product is available integrated with Varitronix’s various display solutions as per customers’ requirements.

Comparison between Capacitive Touch Panel and Resistive Touch Panel
Capacitive Touch Panel Resistive Touch Panel
Touch (no pressure needed) Press (pressure activated)
No calibration required Calibration required (resistance drift on film)
Better Durability, No significant aging Display turns white when aging
Handles high temperature Film breaks down at high temperature
Better Transparency, less optical power needed Low transmission
Can be vandal-proof (thick glass/plastic) Easily damaged (thin top layer)
Scratch Resistant (with glass) Prone to scratch without hardcoat
Stylus not a must Need stylus, easy to lose

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 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…
