New Four-Port Wall/Shelf-Mount and Rack-Mount Gas Tube Lightning Protectors Protect Cat 6 Lines

L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has introduced two new gas tube lightning protectors designed to protect up to four Category 6 Ethernet cable lines. Designed to stop transient voltages or power spikes from damaging sensitive electronic equipment, these new wall/shelf-mount and rack-mount models offer even better protection than the diode versions that L-com has carried since 2009.

L-com's earlier models of four-port Cat 6 lightning protectors used ultra-low capacitance diodes to stop spikes of up to 65 Volts. The new models use gas discharge tubes to provide low line-to-line and line-to-ground capacitance, minimizing distortion of high-speed signals. They stop spikes up to 90 Volts and have L-com's highest power rating available. The new parts are also compatible with 802.3af/at PoE devices.

"We know that power surges cause massive expenses to businesses world-wide every year," said Patrick Pesa, Director of Product Management. "We're glad we're able to offer such high-power protection with nearly no impact at all in signal speed or quality. Now customers can easily protect high-speed Ethernet devices with the convenience of a wall or rack mount protector for up to four separate lines."

The new protectors are built in the USA and stocked in L-com's Florida distribution center for shipment on the same day as ordered.

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…

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…

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.
