Agilent Technologies Introduces the First Wideband, Dual-Channel PXI Vector Signal Analyzer with Streaming Capabilities for Detecting and Identifying RF Interference

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the availability of the first dual-channel PXI vector signal analyzer that delivers high-bandwidth, independently tuned, two-channel, continuous data capture. This product, a new configuration of Agilent's M9392A analyzer, enables R&D and test engineers to detect and identify sources of RF interference - even in dense urban environments where many unwanted signals may be present.

The solution is ideal for troubleshooting wireless devices in either the lab or real-world environments.

The dual-channel PXI vector signal analyzer, offers a unique combination of bandwidth, multichannel support, and gapless recording, with 250 MHz of analysis bandwidth, 26.5-GHz frequency coverage on two channels, and continuous streaming up to 100 MHz bandwidth. Both channels can be housed in an 18-slot, 4U PXIe chassis to provide excellent speed and scalability in a small form factor.

Engineers can use the dual-channel PXI vector signal analyzer to perform continuous data capture, either directly to an embedded or external controller for data capture of a few seconds, or to a RAID for data capture lasting from several minutes to more than six hours, depending on the storage capacity of the RAID and the desired measurement bandwidth.

This solution uses Agilent's 89600 VSA software for reliable, standards-based measurements.

"As modern radios often operate in urban areas in a complex RF environment with many sources of interference, Agilent's new wideband, two-channel solution with 100-MHz continuous data capture provides designers with unique capabilities for environment recording applications," said Mark Pierpoint, VP and general manager of Agilent's Software and Modular Solutions Division.

The multichannel capability for Agilent's PXI vector signal analyzer further enhances Agilent's fast-growing lineup of more than 50 PXI and AXIe modular products.

This solution can also be used in combination with Agilent Command Expert, a free software application that provides fast and easy instrument control in many PC environments. It combines instrument command sets, documentation, syntax checking and command execution in a single interface.

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.
