Gowanda's Power Inductors First to Achieve QPL Level T for Mil-Prf-27

Gowanda Electronics, a US-based designer and manufacturer of precision electronic components for power, radio frequency (RF), and high frequency (HF) applications, has achieved the highest level of certification on three surface mount power inductor series. Gowanda’s three “MLP” series have been added to the military’s Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Land and Maritime Qualified Products List (QPL) for MIL-PRF-27 Level T. This is the highest quality level attainable per the Department of Defense military specification MIL-PRF-27 for components used in high-reliability critical military applications. Gowanda is the first in the industry to offer these Level T components.

Gowanda’s MLP5025-T series is qualified to MIL-PRF-27/367A while the company’s MLP1812-T series meets MIL-PRF-27/368A and the MLP8527-T series meets MIL-PRF-27/370A. By achieving Level T certification on these wirewound molded power inductors, Gowanda is responding to a need conveyed by organizations in the military market for a high-reliability QPL-approved inductor supplier for this mil spec.

These MLP series are designed for power applications in military, space, aerospace and defense communities. This includes use in communication, guidance, and security applications, as well as in radar, test & evaluation, and special mission applications.

The three T Level QPL series from Gowanda allow customers immediate access to higher level environmentally screened inductors. This streamlines the customer’s operations by eliminating the need to create their own internal upscreening documentation.

Gowanda Electronics now offers these Level T products in addition to its MIL-PRF-27 Level M qualified products initially introduced in 2009.  The Level T certification requires more extensive lot conformance testing and inspection than Level M.  Each Level T production lot is subjected to 100% thermal shock, burn-in and radiographic inspection in addition to electrical testing. The customer-specific application determines the need to meet Level M or Level T requirements. These series are also suitable for use in non-military high reliability (hi-rel) or high risk applications which warrant a thoroughly tested inductor coil.

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…
