The New GPS Plus Card II From ClearConnex. Now Supporting Maestro A2100 and Trimble Copernicus II GPS Modules.

ClearConnex is pleased to announce the latest addition to its expansion slot card family. The new enhanced card is called the ClearConnex GPS Plus Card II now with support for the Maestro A2100, based on SiRFstarIV technology, or Trimble Copernicus II GPS modules.

The card joins the GPS Plus Card for Fastrack, the M2M Quickstart Developer kit, and the Firmware Loading Board in ClearConnex's fast growing hardware product line.

Build On What's There and Start Ahead.

The expansion slot is one of the most underutilized innovations in wireless modems. Expandable hardware platforms have the potential to deliver the functionality of a custom solution with the cost-effectiveness of an off the shelf modem.

Take an expandable Maestro Heritage, Xact Trax or Sierra Wireless Fastrack Modem. Add our GPS Plus Card II for SIRFstarIV or Trimble Copernicus II modules and you don't have to invest another cent on hardware or mechanical design to gain additional capabilities.

We've tested and proven this new Card with our ClearComm Software Platform. That means there are little or no software development costs when you use these technologies together.

The design is a building block.

In addition to continuing support for SD cards and 26 GPIOs, another big change from the original Fastrack Card is the additional support for an accelerometer. Just like the original GPS Plus Card for Fastrack, you can license this Card design as is and have an out of the box solution or ClearConnex Engineering Services can be utilized to customize the card for your own needs.

Do Not Reinvent The Wheel.

Ryan Rangel, ClearConnex CEO,explains: "The GPS Plus Card II keeps us in lock-step with the latest in GPS technology. You can use this design as a starting point and swap out capabilities with little cost in time or money on development. Talk about starting ahead and finishing ahead."

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 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.
