Get Even More Versatility and Further Improve Productivity with the World's Most Compact Type 3 Safety Laser Scanners

The OS32C Safety Laser Scanner from Omron Scientific Technologies Inc. is now available in 30, 40, 50 and 70 mm resolutions. This makes the OS32C an ideal safeguarding solution covering a wider array of area and machine safety applications, including point-of-entry hand detection applications and other instances where safety light curtains are simply too large to fit or may impair productivity. It also enables the OS32C to be mounted closer to the pinch point, which can help increase machine productivity and optimize valuable floor space.

Further enhancing safety and productivity, the latest version (1.4.2) of the OS32C configuration tool enables users to copy and paste zones and zone sets to significantly reduce programming time. Version 1.4.2 also offers record system monitoring and playback to help users troubleshoot false nuisance intrusions, as well as configuration checksum functionality to help identify any program tampering after equipment has been commissioned. It provides troubleshooting tips in the fault log, and makes available additional zone shapes.

Additional OS32C updates include an improved standby mode that minimizes the potential for optical interference with other equipment on the factory floor, as well as the ability to invert the 7-segment display in applications where the scanner needs to be mounted upside down.

The OS32C features a compact 104.5 mm profile, light 1.3 kg weight and low 5 W power consumption (3.75 W in standby mode). Combined with innovative features such as highly flexible and easily configurable detection zones, the OS32C is not only easy to handle and install, but also delivers the versatility needed to solve diverse presence detection and collision avoidance application needs.

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.
