IQD Launch New Tight Stability ‘Real Time Clock’ at Embedded World 2012

IQD have launched a newly designed tight stability Real Time Clock (RTC) which incorporates a 32.768kHz crystal with a Digital Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (DTCXO). This Surface Mount RTC is housed in a plastic package with a FR4 base measuring just 10.0 x 7.4mm.

The new IQRC-100 series has an I2C-Bus* (400kHz) interface with a CMOS output allowing the RTC to operate with a very low power consumption which at 3V is typically 0.8µA. Incorporating the DTCXO within the RTC allows for a very tight frequency stability of ±3.4ppm over a wide operating temperature of –40 to +85 degrees C to be achieved. This tight stability equates to a maximum of 9 seconds a month deviation over the full operating temperature range. Other frequency stabilities are available including ±5ppm over –40 to +85 degrees C and ±5ppm at room temperature, 25 degrees C. For applications where a tight stability is not required a frequency stability of ±25ppm over –40 to +85 is available. The IQRC-100 series has an interface voltage range of between 1.8 to 5.5V and a wide timekeeper voltage range of between 1.6 to 5.5V.

The functions within the IQRC-100 series include a full calendar, alarm, timer and leap year adjustment.    

The IQRC-100 series is ideal for a wide range of applications including: Blood Pressure Monitors, Data loggers, Industrial Control, POS Systems, Security Systems, Telemetric Systems & Utility Meters

Further details will be available at IQD’s stand 152 in hall 1 at Embedded Show 2012.

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.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
