Achievement of an Expected Service Life of 5 Years at 70°C Start of Mass Production of "Highly Reliable Electric Double-Layer Capacitors" for Power Supply Backup Applications

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. will start mass production of the DMG series of highly reliable electric double-layer capacitors*1 from June 2012. The DMG series is intended mainly for SSD*2 backup applications, and features low resistance and excellent long-term reliability at high temperatures, in a thin package.

Murata introduced technology developed by CAP-XX, an Australian firm and Murata business partner as of 2008, and commenced mass production of the DME and DMD series of electric double-layer capacitors from December 2010. However, the increasing popularity of SSD in recent years has led to demands for thin, low-resistance capacitors that assure long-term reliability under high temperatures, as backups in the event of power failures.

The DMG series suppresses the degradation of characteristics under high temperatures by optimizing the electrolyte and other materials. This realized the desired heat resistance that had not been possible thus far, and achieved an expected service life of 5 years at 70°C. In addition, realization of a low resistance of 70 mΩ in a thin package enables highly efficient charging and discharging over a wide input and output range.

The DMG series is designed for applications that anticipate long-term use, and can be used over a wide input and output range as power supply backups for SSD and communication systems, and as energy-harvesting capacitors.

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…


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.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
