Alpha Wire adds CSA Tray Cable Rating to Series F, P, SF Cables

Alpha Wire has added the Canadian tray cable rating c(UL) TC/CIC to its line of Industrial Series F, Series P, and Series SF cables. Per the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC), this rating is required when installing cables into tray applications.

Cable systems that use tray cables have significant advantages over systems that use pipes or conduits.  Not only is it less expensive to use tray cables, it is also very useful for situations where wiring changes are common, as the new cable can simply be installed in the tray instead of having to pull it through a conduit.

This new cable rating will apply to the following cables from Alpha Wire:

  • Industrial Series F: Series F cables are our most flexible and robust control cables – providing reliable flexing day in and day out. Designed for a variety of flexing styles, they have been tested to exceed over 20 million rolling flex cycles, making them ideal for both single-axis and multi-axis motion control and robotic applications where continuous flexing is required.
  • Industrial Series P: Series P cables combine exceptional oil and chemical resistance with a specially formulated thermoplastic elastomer jacket for additional flexibility. This flexibility makes it easier to install and route the cable in tight spaces.
  • Industrial Series SF: Series SF power servo cables bring a new level of flexibility to the integration and monitoring of servo drives. Designed specifically for connecting power between the supply and servo motors, drives, and controllers, Series SF cables feature a flexible TPE jacket and PVC/nylon insulation, making them suitable for flexing applications that require continuous movement.

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…

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…

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.
