Wurth Elektronik ICS Introduces a New Power Element for SMD Assembly

Würth Elektronik ICS introduces a new current supply element (power element) that was developed especially for the assembly of printed circuit boards in SMD technology. PowerPlus SMD can be used everywhere that press-fit technology or through-hole technology (THT) cannot viably be used. With the PowerPlus SMD, which can supply a current of up to 344 amps, Würth Elektronik ICS completes its range of current supply elements.

The new PowerPlus SMD are of interest to all companies that assemble printed circuit boards in SMD technology and run high currents over the printed circuit boards. If press fit technology cannot be integrated, or only at great expense, the new power supply element offers an excellent alternative. It is suitable for wave solder-ing as well as vapour phase soldering.

PowerPlus SMD is available in six versions from M4 to M12. The largest element, M12, can supply currents of up to 344 amps, with a cable cross section of 120 mm². In addition, it offers a maximum torque of 21.0 Nm for connection technology.

The possible applications for the PowerPlus SMD are numerous. In addition to supplying high currents, it is suitable for connecting components like mega-fuses, or for mechanically connecting printed circuit boards. Of course, the power supply element complies with RoHs and REACH guidelines.

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…

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…


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.
