FCI XLerate™ High-Speed I/O Cabling Solutions Provide Speeds up to 120Gb/s in Copper and Fiber Optic

FCI, a leading manufacturer of connectors and interconnect systems, has launched a new line of high-speed I/O cabling solutions. XLerate™ is available in bandwidths from 10Gb/s up to 120Gb/s, and FCI is the first and only supplier to offer the complete range of speeds in both copper and fiber optic options, making the product line an ideal fit for data center, high-performance computing, and switching applications.

“FCI’s XLerate I/O cabling solutions provide the highest bandwidth per port and the highest hardware faceplate port density,” said Rob Poort, general manager, optical solutions group, FCI. “We’re now the first and only supplier that can offer a complete and complementary portfolio of active optical cables and transceivers and passive copper elements.”

The XLerate portfolio comprises copper and fiber optic solutions that deliver aggregated bandwidth ranging from 10Gb/s up to 120 Gb/s in various industry standard-compliant interfaces. The product line is cost-effective in that it simplifies the design process by providing a limited number of discrete components in the link; additionally, it allows installers, OEMs and VARs to go to one source for connectors, EMI cages, transceivers and optical and copper cable assemblies they require. The XLerate solutions support both Infiniband and Ethernet protocols.

XLerate cabling is plug-and-play, with active optical cables (AOC) providing a closed optical system for both worker safety as well as to protect the cable from dust contamination. The assemblies are 100 percent final tested, assembled in a clean room environment, provide optimum signal integrity and an aggregate bandwidth of up to 150 Gb/s.

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…

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 power…


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.
