Product Change/Upgrade to DA/DV SMD Heatsinks Supplied on Tape and Reel

In order to accommodate high volume users of DA/DV SMD Heatsinks, Ohmite will be adding removable Kapton Tape to the top of each part when delivered on tape and reel. The Kapton Tape will provide a smooth, flat surface to facilitate its handling by automatic pick and place equipment. Throughout our industry Kapton Tape has been applied to oddly shaped components for this purpose.

After the heatsink has been installed, the tape can easily be removed as a backend operation. This change allows the DA/DV Heatsink to retain the maximum number of fins, and the best possible thermal performance, instead of tooling a flat area on the top/center of the heatsink, which would degrade the thermal performance of the device.

This change will commence with all deliveries starting with 2012 date codes and will apply only to taped and reeled products. No change in the part number is required and no change to the CR135 Price Schedule is involved. Please use the time remaining in 2011 to alert users to this pending change. Even customers buying in small, non taped quantities should be advised, as they may require larger volumes in the future and may also be persuaded to use the DA/DV Heatsink with this added benefit.

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.
