WAGO Heavy-Duty Solid State Relay and Timer

WAGO Corporation’s Custom Products Division has shoehorned a 6A Solid State Relay and User-Configurable On/Off Delay Timer into a 6mm housing. Engineered for high cycle applications, 859 Series Solid State devices surpass the performance of 5mm/2A units while providing greater adaptability than 6A 11- and 22mm-wide units. Eliminating electromechanical elements, 859 Series avoids G-ratings common to heavy-duty packaging, injection molding, shipbuilding and non-automotive transport applications.

The DIN-rail Solid State Relay (859-941) and Timer (859-475/001-000) support space-restricted panels with heat dissipation of less than 1W. Both high efficiency devices feature an integrated fused output for overcurrent protection up to 6A. An on-unit LED indicates the Timer’s output switching status or Relay’s open/closed output status. CAGE CLAMP® COMPACT Spring Pressure provides vibration-proof and maintenance-free terminations for conductors 28–14 AWG.

Solid State Relay:

DIP-switch equipped 859-941 Relay provides input voltage ranges of 5–10V, 10–24V and 24–30V and operating temperature range of 0–40°C. Maximum switch frequencies (50% duty cycle): 200Hz (6A), 300Hz (5A) and 400Hz (4A). Output is 19.2–28.8VDC.

Solid State Timer:

The 859 Series Solid State Timer carries an on-unit DIP switch, as well as top-mounted adjustable potentiometer — fine tune without removing from DIN-rail. Timer range: 0.25–2 seconds, 1–8 seconds, 5–75 seconds or 35 seconds–10 minutes. Standard operating temperature range is 0–40°C; alternate range is 0–70°C at 5A max (24VDC).

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…

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.
