Two New Safety Contact Edges from Omron STI Provide Simplified Mounting for Enhanced Safety on Moving Parts

Omron Scientific Technologies, Inc. has expanded its family of patented SGE safety contact strips. SGE-88 and SGE-1510 models are both offered in EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Rubber) for excellent resistance to ozone and weathering, while also making them well-suited for use in applications with exposure to aggressive chemicals. The SGE-88 mounts with simple double-sided tape. The SGE-1510 mounts with an integrated angle on the profile, or can be ordered for use with an aluminum-mounting rail.

The IP65 protected SGE series is available in six different models, and have a minimum number of components to facilitate fast delivery and assembly. Easily assembled components, molded end caps, and cables that plug directly into the safety contact, provide maximum reliability. The safety contact is co-extruded as an integral part of the profile, eliminating the need to 'fish' the safety contact into the profile for significantly reduced assembly time compared with competitive products. The safety contact is housed in and protected from damage by an outer covering of non-conductive rubber that allows actuation angles up to 90 degrees. This construction offers low resistance, even in lengths up to 100 meters. SGE series safety contact strips can be an integral part of many comprehensive machine safeguarding solutions. They deliver fast and accurate response in any number of potential application hazards, including gates, doors, machines, automatic mixers and scissor lifts. Safety edges can be fixed to the edge of a moving part where there is a risk of a crushing or shearing hazard. If the moving part that includes the safety edge strikes an operator (or vice versa) the flexible safety edge is depressed and will send a signal to the power source to stop.

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 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.
