Efficient, High Brightness LED Controller Introduced by Saelig

Saelig Company Inc. has introduced the LED-Warrior01 modules, a LED control module designed to provide constant current output for driving up to 7 high brightness LEDs. These step-down power supply modules provide 350 mA, 700 mA, or 1000 mA for LEDs, with a maximum output power of 24W and an efficiency of up to 95 % from input voltage of 7V to 30V.  LED-Warrior01 regulators can be used in a wide range of low voltage lighting applications with multiple LED groups.

LED brightness can be controlled with LED-Warrior01 modules via analog or PWM signals, and when the LEDs are switched off, the modules go into a low consumption standby mode, consuming less than 40 uA. A primary design goal for the LED-Warrior01 has been exceptional reliability by avoiding components like electrolytic capacitors, making sure the electronics perform to specification longer than the LED. Primary design constraints for the LED-Warrior01 have been energy efficiency, reliability, and cost/performance ratio. The resulting product is a low-cost, point-of-load regulator board that is compact (1” x 0.8”) and allows easy integration into lighting solutions. The low input voltage design allows for use in existing low voltage installations, including on-board power in vehicles.

Recently, LEDs have become a viable alternative for general lighting applications. Compared to traditional light sources, LEDs offer a much longer life cycle and, in most cases, significantly better energy efficiency. But the technical hurdles in designing LED-based luminaires are higher than with traditional light sources. Designing reliable electronics to efficiently drive the LEDs is often a challenge for lighting manufacturers. But LED-Warrior01 regulators offer a simple, easy solution for most low voltage LED lighting situations.

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…
