Energy Micro and Spectrum Design Solutions to Offer Energy-Efficient Wireless Designs

Energy Micro, the energy friendly microcontroller and radio company, today announced a strategic relationship with Spectrum Design Solutions, a division of Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) that provides wireless design services. The two companies will work closely together to solve customers’ wireless design challenges using the Energy Micro EFM32 Gecko range of microcontrollers.

Spectrum Design Solutions employs more than 40 of the world’s foremost wireless design professionals. The new agreement connects this deep pool of talent and expertise with the powerful processing capabilities and best-in-class energy performance of the EFM32 series. Spectrum offers a complete range of wireless design and integration services, from requirements specification through to product certification, for medical devices, network communications, avionics, smart energy and fleet management.

"We pride ourselves on forging close relationships with the companies whose products we use to develop our customers’ solutions," said Mike Burica, Managing Director, Spectrum Design Solutions. "Working with Energy Micro not only gives us access to a range of microcontrollers that is ideally suited to our core area of expertise in wireless systems; it also allows us to talk directly with the engineers who created the EFM32 series to solve our customers’ design challenges more quickly and smoothly."

Raman Sharma, Energy Micro’s Vice President of Sales, Americas, said: "We’re very proud to be working with an organization of the caliber of Spectrum Design Solutions. The best design services require the best engineers, and Spectrum certainly delivers on that promise. We’re looking forward to providing outstanding results to our mutual customers."

Energy Micro’s Gecko microcontroller family consists of a range of more than 240 device variants based on the ARM Cortex processor cores. Benchmarked to consume just a quarter of the energy of competing 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit MCUs, the EFM32 Gecko series can extend the lifetime of a typical battery operated applications by at least 300 per cent.
Spectrum Design Solutions offers complete hardware and software wireless design services, including wireless strategy consulting, product customization, custom antenna design and antenna validation services. This enables OEMs to quickly and easily add wireless capabilities to new and existing products.

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

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


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.
