Bulgin Connectors Now Offer Higher Voltage Ratings for 277V Applications

Bulgin Components, a brand of Elektron Technology, has uprated its popular Standard Buccaneer range of IP68-rated environmentally sealed circular connectors with higher voltage ratings. The two, three, four, six and seven pole versions have been uprated from the original 250V to 277V. This upgrade extends the ranges suitability into commercial and industrial applications, such as overhead lighting and high power equipment.

The Standard Buccaneer model comes in seven different body styles, including flex, in-line flex, front and rear panel, PCB, bulkhead and flange mount and is available in two, three, four, six, seven, nine, 12 and 25 poles. The wide range of body styles lends the standard Buccaneer to being a versatile connector for many applications.

Ratings range from 1A/50V to 12A/277Vac/dc. Cable acceptance ranges from 3.5mm to 9mm overall diameter, whilst the connectors simple construction ensures ease of assembly without the need for special tooling.

Accessories include sealing caps, insulation boots, cable support accessories and rear of panel-mounting backshells, providing a rear of panel seal to the panel-mounting connectors in this range.

The Standard Buccaneer carries UL, CSA and VDE approvals.

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 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.

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.
