Agilent Technologies Donates Test Equipment to University of Colorado - Colorado Springs College of Engineering and Applied Science

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) has donated electronic test and measurement equipment valued at more than $200,000 to the University of Colorado Colorado Springs College of Engineering and Applied Science. The donation of Agilent InfiniiVision 3000 X-Series oscilloscopes was made in recognition of the long-term, strong relationship between Agilent and the UCCS College of Engineering and Applied Science. A celebration of the donation was held today during an unveiling ceremony at the university.

"Our gift to the College of Engineering and Applied Science at UCCS aligns with Agilent's education support objectives," said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Oscilloscope Products Division. "It allows us to give back to the community in which we do business and support the engineering college's research in a collaborative way."

In accepting the equipment for UCCS, Pam Shockley-Zalabak, chancellor, also noted Alexander's leadership role. "Jay is an important member of the college's Leadership Council, and this donation is a special example of his and Agilent's philanthropic spirit," said Shockley-Zalabak.

Dan Dandapani, dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, also spoke at the ceremony, noting the special relationship the college has with Agilent. He mentioned the company's willingness to lend students advanced measurement equipment in support of student research projects and its history of employing UCCS graduates.

Mark Wickert, professor of electrical and computer engineering, said, "These new oscilloscopes provide our students and research faculty with cutting-edge measurements to help them develop new, breakthrough technologies."

The award was made through Agilent's University Relations program.

"We are confident that this will be an important contribution to the educational program of the college's electrical and computer engineering department, and we hope it will foster even closer ties between our organizations," said Alexander.

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…
