Molex Launches VersaBeam™ Product Family with New POD Cable Assemblies for Emerging High-Speed Data and Computer Applications

Molex Incorporated today launched VersaBeam™, a new product family focused on expanded-beam interconnects. The first product introduced under the new banner is the VersaBeam POD Cable Assemblies, which provide a low-profile, expanded-beam, 12-fiber solution specifically designed to mate with Avago Technologies’ MicroPOD* and MiniPOD* parallel optic modules. The assemblies are the first on the market to meet Telcordia GR-1435 environmental specifications required by telecommunications equipment providers. The assemblies are available in both a 1.80 mm jacketed round version, in addition to the bare ribbon-fiber versions.

The VersaBeam POD Cable Assemblies feature a unique perpendicular mating capability to provide optimum airflow and ribbon cable management as well as increase real-estate opportunities on dense printed circuit boards (PCBs). “We worked closely with Avago to develop a solution that not only meets telecom specification standards for optical-cable to optical-module mating, but also provides optimum airflow and cable management for next-generation applications in emerging high-speed data and computer markets,” said Tom Schiltz, group product manager, Molex.

The VersaBeam POD assemblies are interconnected through the Molex extensive line of front-panel and blind-mating optical backplane connectors, providing customers with the widest selection of high-density interconnects for a variety of system architecture designs. By using 24-, 48- and 72-fiber MT ferrules, VersaBeam POD assemblies can be mated to the Molex high density interconnects including HBMT, Array Connector and Circular MT connectors. With multiple Molex manufacturing sites qualified, Molex VersaBeam POD assemblies are available to meet high volume requirements needed for next generation applications.

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 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.

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…
