Welwyn Achieves SC21 Accreditation

TT electronics, the global electronics group supplying the world's leading defence and aerospace manufacturers, has announced rapid progress by its divisions committed to the aerospace industry's 21st Century Supply Chains (SC21) improvement programme. The divisions are cooperating internally to accelerate improvements and increase value for customers.

Welwyn Components is the latest TT group company to achieve SC21 accreditation, having recently won bronze recognition by A|D|S, the organisation that originated and manages the programme. The group's contract assembly business, TT electronics - integrated manufacturing services, has also announced re-accreditation to bronze standard following its latest audit. In addition, New Chapel Electronics is submitting its first exposition for assessment by A|D|S, and expects to receive initial SC21 recognition when this is completed.

With other TT group companies BI Technologies and Semelab also about to begin preparing for SC21 audit, Harvey Preston, divisional director, described how the five companies are working together to promote SC21 objectives and increase the pace of progress. SC21 provides an effective framework for continuously improving cooperation between supply-chain partners, with metrics covering business excellence and manufacturing excellence. As such, it complements the industry-standard quality management systems already in place at TT group companies, such as AS9100.

Our group companies have the additional benefit of working together through activities such as internal cluster events providing extra opportunities to learn together and share experiences and information. This will help them progress more quickly along their individual SC21 journeys, and ultimately deliver extra value for customers through stronger supply chain relationships, greater efficiency and increased competitiveness.

Underlining the importance of defence and aerospace sectors to the TT group, Harvey added that the group's commitment to SC21 was progressing alongside several other initiatives including intensive use of web-based information and communication channels to maintain and increase knowledge of the defence sector. We are committed to increasing our presence and growing our share of this important market by delivering dependable, innovative services that add value for our customers.

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…
