VPT Series Toroidal Power Transformers Offer Efficient Electronics Design Solution

Featuring up to 97.4 percent power efficiency and a highly efficient design using nearly 30 percent less material, the new VPT Series Toroidal Power Transformers from Triad Magnetics provide an innovative green power electronics solution that is also smaller and lighter than traditional transformers.

Compared to conventional EI transformers, toroidal construction inherently helps reduce stray fields, increases efficiency and minimizes size. Triad's new transformers are constructed with a Class B, UL approved insulation system rated for 130°C that provides 4000V primary to secondary isolation.

The highly efficient VPT Series is suitable for a wide range of applications in commercial and industrial equipment. The transformers operate over a broad power range from 25 VA to 2.5 KVA, depending on the specific model selected. With dual primary and secondary windings, it allows for maximum flexibility of input and output voltages. The VPT Series features an input voltage of 115/230 VAC, 50/60 Hz, and output voltage from 6.0V through 230V. Voltage regulation is up to 2.5 percent from full load to no load.

VPT Series transformers are designed and manufactured under Triad’s ISO9001 quality assurance program. Thorough testing procedures assure that Triad products meet the most stringent global safety and environmental standards including UL, CE, RoHS and REACH. Agency files are available upon request.

The VPT Series features a rugged, RoHS compliant toroidal construction in a package ranging in size from 71 to 208 mm diameter, a height range of 32 to 112 mm and weight range of 0.4 to 19.4 kg, depending on the specific model selected. The highest quality materials ensure superior performance and a long life. VPT Series transformers are simple to install out of the box, with mounting hardware
included. Connections are 8 inch (200 mm) stranded UL 1015 lead wire with 0.25 inch (6 mm) stripped/tinned ends.

Depending on the model selected and the quantity ordered, the VPT Series Transformers are priced starting at $12.00 each in quantities of 100 units with delivery from stock to 8 weeks lead time. They are available off-the-shelf from Triad's extensive distributor network. Triad’s design engineers also work with customers to create custom products to fit specific needs.

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…
