Resistors Optimised for Conductive Adhesive Bring Tiny SMD Outlines to Specialised Applications

New chip resistors optimised for use with conductive adhesives, from TT electronics, maintain performance at high temperature up to 200°C and in applications such as hybrid microcircuits or medical MRI scanners where non-magnetic components must be used.

The GCR series glueable chip resistors are available in several variants, providing a choice of industry-standard EIA chip sizes down to 0805 and E24/E96 resistance values from 1? to 10M?. Power ratings are from 0.125W in the 0805 size up to 1W in the 2512 package. Planar and wraparound terminations are available, featuring a choice of metallurgies including polymer-silver or gold with a nickel barrier for use in various environments and applications.

Conductive adhesive is preferred for assembling some types of hybrid microcircuits, non-magnetic electronics and equipment designed to operate at temperatures capable of melting ordinary solder. These include down-hole drilling equipment, as well as military, aerospace and automotive assemblies. TT electronics GCR series resistors are compatible with most approved adhesives, and allow a mechanically strong bond with low electrical resistance. The resistors, when optionally supplied with no organic materials, are also suitable for applications requiring low outgassing, such as scientific equipment and space instruments.

Designers can choose from devices with 1% or 5% tolerance, to fulfil a variety of application requirements. The temperature coefficient of 100ppm/°C (200ppm/°C for values below 10?) ensures outstanding stability throughout the specified operating temperature range from -55°C to +200°C.

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…
