Bivar Launches 4xpress

Bivar, a leading specialty provider of LED indication products and solutions, has announced the launch of 4xpress, an online program that enables Bivar to quickly respond to custom light pipe design inquiries. As part of the 4xpress program, Bivar will assess new projects and provide recommendations within two business days or less. The benefit to design engineers is they will now receive critical feedback as quickly as possible to help them determine if a viable light pipe design solution is available to meet their cost and production requirements.

Bivar’s light pipes are ideally suited to applications with difficult designs where the LED light source is positioned far from the viewing surface or is obstructed by other components. Bivar’s 4xpress program is targeted to engineers facing this challenge as they design applications for a wide range of markets including medical, industrial, audio/video and security.

Before 4xpress, design engineers were challenged not only by difficult designs but also by lengthy response times to their custom light pipe design inquiries. Ranging from several days to several weeks, these industry average response times can cause serious delays in a product design schedule. Bivar’s 4xpress program significantly reduces average response times, providing design engineers the information they need in a timely manner.

Bivar has years of experience analyzing, evaluating and providing solutions to a wide variety of unique and difficult product designs. The company has built its reputation by working closely with its customers to provide solutions – some complex and custom, others simple, standard product modifications. From brand new designs to retrofitting existing designs, Bivar takes into consideration the resources and urgency of each project and becomes an extension of its customers’ teams.

“There are many new and exciting applications ideal for LED indication,” said Michael Finn, Bivar vice president of sales and marketing. “To keep up with the rapid pace of evolving technology, we’ve created 4xpress to offer solutions to our customers’ product design challenges. We have an experienced engineering team that has spent years utilizing industry best practices, manufacturability and cost optimization and can provide viable solutions to our customers. The new 4xpress program enables our customers to maintain momentum and bring their products to market faster.”

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…
