Nano WiReach™ USB with Smart Integrated CPU Makes 802.11n Affordable and Risk-Free for Embedded Devices

Connect One™, the Device Networking Authority™, today announced Nano WiReach™ USB, a miniature WiFi module that immediately brings wireless connectivity to consumer devices not originally intended to support wireless functionality.

Because integrated CPU and memory manage the wireless LAN functions on module, Nano WiReach boasts robust, high-speed, 802.11n-compliant wireless LAN for home gateways, set-top boxes, gaming consoles, printers, medical devices and other products. Nano WiReach USB is priced at less than $10 per unit.

For the first time, consumer manufacturers gain a fully compliant, fully certified WiFi module that operates at high-performance speeds at a single-digit price point. With Nano WiReach USB’s innovative host-offload capability, this wireless LAN module delivers blazing PHY rates of up to 150 Mbps.

Autonomous, seamless operation transparently supports a number of features designed to boost performance—internal diversity switch that selects antenna 1 or 2 for baseband signal processing as well as unparalleled WPA2 security with WEP, TKIP and AES encryption in hardware.

“Connect One is proud to be the first to offer a WiFi module with no cost or performance tradeoffs,” noted Erez Lev, Vice President Sales at Connect One. “With Nano WiReach USB, we deliver the best-performance WiFi solution on the market at an unprecedented price point. Yet again, Connect One has truly made WiFi affordable for any embedded consumer application with zero design risks.”

Nano WiReach USB comes with full developer support. The Nano WiReach USB has a full driver support package for Linux, Windows 7, Vista and Windows XP, enabling complete compatibility and flexibility for the product designer.

As well, Nano WiReach USB is fully compliant with IEEE 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11d, 802.11e, 802.11i and 802.11n. With very simple integration via a 4-pin header for the USB interface, this module cuts months off the design cycle of a wireless product.

A broad temperature range of 0° to 70°C (32° to 158°F), RoHS compliance, and small size (3.0 x 1.5 x 8.8 cm) all contribute to Nano WiReach USB’s easy implementation.

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 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.
