Silex Releases the SX-520, a Low Cost, Easy to Install, RS-232C Serial to 10/100 Ethernet Device Server

Silex Technology America, Inc., a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions, today announced the release and availability of the Silex SX-520, an RS232C to 10/100 Ethernet Device Server that is very easy to install and very affordable at $99 MSRP.

The SX-520 was designed to take the complexity out of connecting virtually any RS232C serial device to an Ethernet network, making it quick and easy to access, monitor and control devices over the network. Key advantages of device networking include; extending the lifecycle and ROI of legacy equipment, accessing equipment and data remotely, and allowing non-networked devices to communicate with newer networked systems.

SX-520 Specification:
  • Includes Silex’s SX Virtual Link Serial Port Emulation
  • Industry Standard DB9M RS232C Serial Port
  • Auto sensing 10/100 RJ45 Ethernet Interface
  • RFC-2217 automated control of serial rate and control lines
  • Exclusive Auto Find and Setup Utility
“Connecting serial devices to a network sounds easy, but serial data was never meant to communicate over TCP/IP networks, but the experts at Silex Technology have bridged this gap,” said David Smith, President of Silex Technology America. “This is the latest in a long line of successful solutions Silex has brought to market over the past 35 years. We pride ourselves on solving complex connectivity problems in demanding environments.”

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…
