Gowanda First in Industry to Offer 0603/0805 QPL RF Chip Inductors

Gowanda Electronics, a US-based designer and manufacturer of precision electronic components for power and radio frequency applications, announced that the company recently achieved qualification to the military’s MIL-PRF-83446 (/36A and /37A) for its ML0603 and ML0805 series of RF surface mount wirewound ceramic core chip inductors. These are the first series in the industry to address the market need for Qualified Product List (QPL) inductors which meet this particular Department of Defense specification.

Gowanda’s ML0603 Series is QPL approved to MIL-PRF-83446/36A and provides inductance from 1.8 to 270 nH, Q Min from 16 to 40, SRF MHz Min from 600 to 6000, DCR Ohms Max from .07 to 1.78 and Current Rating DC mA from 195 to 1000. The ML0805 Series is qualified to MIL-PRF-83446/37A and provides inductance from 2.2 to 2200 nH, Q Min from 15 to 65, SRF MHz Min from 40 to 6000, DCR Ohms Max from .08 to 5.0 and Current Rating DC mA from 140 to 1000. Both series are wirewound coils with ceramic cores and gold terminations. Operating temperature for each series is -55°C to +125°C. The inductors are available in tape and reel and are suitable for reflow soldering. (See links to technical information below)            

Gowanda Electronics’ proprietary epoxy capping technique provides uniform dimensional stability for pick-and-place assembly and assures environmental and mechanical protection of the coil.

The ML0603 and ML0805 Series are designed for RF applications in military, aerospace and defense communities. This includes use in communication, guidance and security applications, as well as in radar, test & evaluation and special mission applications. These series can also be used in other high frequency applications around the world where the rigorous testing associated with these QPL-approved inductors makes them desirable for high reliability (hi rel) designs.

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.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
