Inductors: Compact Multilayer Power Inductors in Case Size 1608 (TDK-EPC Corporation)

TDK-EPC, a group company of the TDK Corporation, has extended its portfolio of compact multilayer power inductors to include the TDK MLP1608-V series in size 1608. The miniatur-ized components are suited for use in the power supply circuitries of mobile devices such as smartphones, conventional mobile phones, digital cameras and similar products. Mass production of the new series has already begun.

The new TDK MLP1608-V series augment the existing 2520, 2016 and 2012 series (2.5 x 2.0 mm², 2.0 x 1.6 mm², 2.0 x 1.2 mm²) with a product that with a footprint of 1.6 x 0.8 mm² and an insertion height of as low as 0.75 mm is even smaller. This miniaturization was made possible thanks to a low-loss ferrite material that was developed by applying proprietary materials technology. When used in place of existing TDK MLP2012S components (1┬ÁH) as a power inductor in the power supply circuitry, a volume reduction of more than 50 percent can be achieved without lowering the power conversion efficiency at currents of up to 100 mA. The MLP1608-V thus helps to further reduce the size requirements for power supply circuitry in mobile devices.

Modern mobile devices integrate a great number of functions and are often operated for extended periods such as when playing games or using the camera. This places considerable strain on the battery and makes battery life a major concern. Because the new TDK power inductors help improve the efficiency of the power supply circuitry that performs voltage conversion they make an important contribution toward reducing power consumption and are thus highly suitable for use in mobile devices.

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…
