Ericsson goes live with IPv6

June 6, 2012, marks the Internet Society’s World IPv6 Launch. On this day, Ericsson, along with other leading Internet companies around the world, will permanently enable IPv6 for its global website.

The world is getting connected – fast. Whether it’s the smart devices in our pockets or businesses and vertical industries being revolutionized though machine-to-machine connectivity, the central influence of the internet on modern life is rapidly exhausting the number of unassigned addresses.

IPv4, the foundation of the Internet today, will not be sufficient in the long run to support the rapid growth of the internet in terms of traffic and connected devices. The participants of the World IPv6 Launch work together on an accelerated timeline for cooperatively identifying and addressing common challenges with IPv6.

Ericsson considers IPv6 critical for the internet’s continued growth as a platform for innovation and economic growth. Ericsson has been a longstanding supporter of IPv6, from its development and standardization all the way to its deployment as a product. By participating in Internet Society’s World IPv6 Launch Day on June 6, Ericsson wants to demonstrate that it stands behind what it recommends to its customers: an unwavering commitment to IPv6 and a resolute deployment.

–This is an important day for us at Ericsson, as our research teams around the world have helped develop IPv6 for over a decade,– says Erik Ekudden, Vice President, Head of Technology Strategies and Industry at Ericsson. –As we expect mobile broadband subscriptions to reach 5 billion in 2017, we need a new generation of IP to support this.

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.
