NetPower Introduces the Industry's Highest Power Sixteenth Brick

Continuing its tradition of providing industry leading products, NetPower announces a new, high power, high efficiency isolated sixteenth (1/16) brick converter.  NetPower’s SRS Series of sixteenth bricks produce output power up to 90W at up to 92% efficiency.   These converters are available in the industry standard sixteenth brick footprints in a low profile 1.3” x 0.9” x 0.37” package.

NetPower’s high power sixteenth bricks are available with output voltages from 1V to 15V, and output current up to 35A.  The SRS Series will be expanded to include different voltage and power levels in the near future.

 “NetPower has again surpassed our competition with our latest sixteenth brick product offering,” said Ed Wiest, Director of Sales at NetPower.  “Our sixteenth bricks provide 18% more power than the nearest competitor, while generating 22% less heat at any given output.  The resulting increase in power density allows our customers much more flexibility in their end equipment designs.”

The SRS Series contain user selectable protection mode and enabling logic, and base (heat) plates as options.  They are currently available in the standard telecom input voltage range of 36V – 75V.  The SRS Series provides a monotonic start up into a pre-biased load and has 1500V basic isolation per UL 60950.

Customer samples are available now.

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 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…
