Precision planar resistor family rated up to 40kV

TT electronics Welwyn Components has extended its portfolio of precision resistors with a range of high-voltage planar resistors rated from 5 to 40kV in air. Offering nominal values from 1K0 to 40G, the new PHVP family is available in precision grades to 0.05%, with temperature coefficients as low as 10ppm/C. The non-inductive, non-magnetic design delivers voltage coefficients down to -0.05ppm/V.

Construction of the resistors ensures RoHS compliance as well as high accuracy. Termination conductors and ruthenium oxide resistive material are printed in a non-inductive pattern on a 96% alumina substrate, and the resistors also feature screen printed protection with tin-coated copper termination wires.

Availability in a choice of axial or radial configuration provides wide applicability including precision power supplies for electron microscopes, X-ray equipment, geophysical probes, semiconductor processing and particle accelerators. The PHVP family is also ideally suited to high-voltage industrial power supplies, for example in electrostatic spraying, powder coating, e-beam welding and insulation test equipment.

Where applications are not covered by the standard range, a custom design service is available. Further options include surface mount variants and gold-bondable pads.

The new precision resistors are available immediately and Welwyn can also advise on competitor equivalent parts for which the PHVP series offers direct drop-in replacement alternatives.

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…
