Expansions in Both Production Capacity and Production Bases for High-Frequency Inductor

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. recently decided to expand the production capacity of its high-frequency inductors*1, which are used in smartphones and other small communication devices. We are therefore working to start production at Okayama Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., and the production of these inductors at a multiple number of production bases will help diversify the company's risk.

Murata has been turning out high-frequency thick-film chip inductors in both the 0603 and 0402 sizes at the Miyazaki Plant of Fukui Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., and now production is to be stepped up in order to meet an increase in demand. In a related future move, in October 2012, Okayama Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. is to commence production of the 0603 inductors that are the focus of high-volume demand. Figures for the combined production capacity of the two plants will register a 4.6-fold increase or so over October 2011 and a 1.8-fold jump or so over April 2012.

Along with the adoption of more and more functions in smartphones and other small communication devices, and with the ever-growing sophistication of these functions, the demand for high-frequency inductors that combine a compact size with a high Q*2 continues to expand at a rapid pace. To meet this demand, Murata aims to continue to boost its production capacity and diversify its risk by producing these components at multiple bases in order to ensure stable supplies.

We use our own unique thick-film printing system*3 for our high-frequency inductors, and the design of these inductors is ideally suited to high-frequency circuits. Our customers have been using them more and more, and they have urged us to step up our supply capabilities. Given our determination to ensure that stable supplies of our inductors will continue, we will be moving quickly to boost our production capacity and add a new production base. By so doing, we are constructing a setup that will certainly eliminate any concerns that our customers may have about our ability to provide them with stable supplies well into the future.

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.
