Belden Introduces DataTuff Cat 6 Cord Sets for Upgrading and Future-Proofing Ethernet Installations

Belden Inc., (NYSE:BDC), a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, announces a new line of industrial grade Cat 6 cord sets that are factory-tested and warranted to provide reliable data transmission for Gigabit industrial Ethernet implementations. Cat 6 standard cord sets support the higher data transmission rates demanded by today’s industrial networks while ensuring backward compatibility with Belden’s line of Cat 5e cord sets. Made with Belden DataTuff industrial Ethernet cables, Belden’s Cat 6 cord sets provide robust, reliable, industrial-grade connectivity for manufacturing in harsh environments.

According to one industry study, the vast majority (72 percent) of failures in industrial networks are at the physical layer. Belden Cat 6 cord sets feature Belden’s Bonded-Pair technology to provide the most robust electrical performance in industrial-grade cables that are designed to withstand hostile environments. Belden’s factory manufactured, tested and warranted cord sets eliminate field-termination failures that compromise transmission quality.

“Belden’s line of cord sets supports Belden’s dedication to providing complete end-to-end solutions for industrial networking applications,” said Frank Koditek, Belden Americas product line manager for industrial cables. “In today’s manufacturing networks, there is rarely a need to field-terminate Ethernet cable. Our cord sets are tested and warranted to provide fast installation and reliable service.”

Like Belden’s Cat 5e cordsets, the Cat 6 cord sets are made with RJ45 plugs, available in shielded and unshielded versions and suitable for IP20 or IP67 applications. The IP20 cord sets are terminated with RJ45 connectors and are fully compatible with suitable Hirschmann and GarrettCom networking products as well as other industry networking devices.

Belden is also featuring Cat 6 cord sets with ruggedized metal body RJ45 plugs for more robust physical performance than standard RJ45 plugs. The cord sets are available in shielded and unshielded designs for IP20 installations and provides extended temperature range from -40C to +70C with greater plug durability due to the die cast body. The metal body plugs are also sold separately for more dependable field attachable connections than using standard RJ45 plugs.

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…
