Panduit Announces Approach to Solving Complex Data Center Infrastructure Management Problems

Panduit, a global leader in comprehensive physical infrastructure solutions, announces the latest release of its Physical Infrastructure Manager™ (PIM™) Software Platform. This physical infrastructure management system provides an end-to-end physical to logical view of the data center and extended enterprise to drive optimization of network performance, operational efficiency and capacity management.

This release extends the current intelligent physical layer management capabilities into a process-driven automation solution for tracking the allocation and utilization of critical IT assets within the data center and throughout the enterprise. This platform lays the foundation for effective Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) through accurate and timely documentation of these physical assets, improved visibility into asset moves, adds and changes, and integration with applicable management systems.

This latest release marks the completion of Phase 1 of Panduit’s three-phased approach to helping customers solve complex DCIM problems. Phase 1 focused on delivering a complete connectivity management solution with on-network asset tracking for the data center and extended enterprise. In Phase 2, this year Panduit is adding the functionality critical to automating on- and off-network asset tracking, allocation and utilization to support optimization of space, power and cooling resources. Starting 2012, Panduit will transition into Phase 3 using their infrastructure expertise combined with predictive analytics to help customers automate capacity planning in the data center. This will include tight, process-driven integration with service management platforms to further reduce operating expenses, improve IT asset resource utilization, and extend data center life.

“The evolution of our PIM™ Software Platform strengthens our ability to solve infrastructure-related problems. The functionality that we are delivering this year will drive down operational costs and optimize the utilization of limited space, power and cooling resources for our customers,” said Tom Donovan, President, Panduit.

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 p

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 E


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.
