Avago Technologies Announces Industry Lowest Operating Power 5MBd Digital Optocouplers

Avago Technologies (Nasdaq: AVAGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced the ACPL-M21L/021L/024L/W21L/K24L optocoupler family. These optocouplers consume less power as compared to other similar 5MBd optocouplers in the market. The ACPL-x2xL optocouplers are designed to meet customer needs for lower power, higher isolation voltage, and better common-mode rejection (CMR) performance, thanks to the excellent performance of the new LED and detector IC design.

Avago Technologies’ digital optocouplers are used in a wide variety of isolation applications ranging from power supply and motor control circuits to data communications and digital logic interface circuits.

The new ACPL-x2xL 5MBd digital optocouplers require minimum LED drive current of 1.6 mA, and detector IC power consumption of less than 1.1 mA.The detector IC contains a CMOS output stage with glitch-free output during power-up and power-down, and optical receiver input stage with built-in Schmitt trigger that provides logic-compatible waveforms, eliminating the need for additional waveshaping. An internal shield also guarantees high common-mode rejection (CMR) of minimum 25 kV/µs at1000V common-mode voltage. ACPL-x2xL optocouplers operate at 3.3V/5V power supply with guaranteed AC and DC performance from an extended temperature range of –40°C to +105°C.

The ACPL-M21L, ACPL-021L and ACPL-W21L are single-channel optocouplers in 5-lead small-outline (SO5), 8-lead small-outline (SO8) and stretched 6-lead small-outline (SO6) packages, respectively. Where as, the ACPL-024L and ACPL-K24L are dual-channels optocouplers in 8-lead small-outline (SO8) and stretched 8-lead small-outline (SO8) packages, respectively.

All new optocouplers are compliant to industrial safety standards such as IEC/EN/DIN EN 60747-5-5 approval for reinforced insulation, UL 1577 and CSA.

The first available optocoupler, the ACPL-M21L is immediately available in sample quantities, and will sell for $0.88 apiece in lots of 10k units.

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…

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
