APEM Offers Rugged 1200 Series Pushbutton Switches Featuring Double Break Contacts

APEM Components, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high quality miniature and industrial switches, offers its rugged 1200 Series momentary pushbutton switches, designed to handle high resistive loads. For maximum efficiency and safety, the 1200 Series features butt action contacts with double break Typical applications include industrial controls, transportation and automotive, agriculture, instrumentation, public kiosks and security equipment.

APEM’s 1200 Series pushbuttons are available in NO and NC models that can handle up to 8 amps at 125 VAC and 4 amps at 250 VAC or 24 VDC. These switches provide 10,000 cycles of life in operating temperatures from -20°C to +55°C. Models are available with UL and CSA approvals. Terminations include screw type, screw and clamp, or solder lug/quick connect.

All models in this series are bushing mounted for installation in a .480” (12.2 mm) mounting hole, and feature a .315” diameter dome-topped actuator that is offered in 4 colors: black, white, green or red. Also available is a chrome plated brass actuator with a chrome plated brass cap nut to satisfy special cosmetic needs. Total travel for the NO units is .177” and for the NC, .137”. Additional materials include silver or copper silver- plated contacts, polyamide actuator and case, and nickel plated brass bushing.

Sealing boots are available to protect against dust and water, and custom markings can be supplied upon request.

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.

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.
