New Power Modules Meet Increased Power and Energy Monitoring Demands

Ericsson has announced an industry first with a new series of Power Interface Modules that save board space for core processing functions and enable system architects to design equipment with energy monitoring features, enabling the use of optimization algorithms to reduce overall board power consumption. The new PIM4800PI series of Power Interface Modules is able to sustain a current of 16.5A across the full telecommunications input voltage range of 36V to 75V, resulting in an output power of 660W to 890W with built-in digital monitoring via the PMBus. In addition, the new modules can provide up to 20A continuous current in systems where there are no input-voltage transients or are very limited.

"The demands for increasing computing power and signal-handling capacity in the ICT (Information and Communications Technology) industry means higher power needs per system board," said Patrick Le Fèvre, Marketing and Communications Director, Ericsson Power Modules. "However, at the same time, board real estate together with energy management and power optimization have became strategically important factors for systems designers. This new product benefits from Ericsson’s extensive experience in high-efficiency topologies, board power optimization technologies and the development of products incorporating digital interfaces and PMBus capabilities.

The first in this new series, the PIM4820BPD is a Power Interface Module that enables monitoring via the industry-standard PMBus and includes a DC/DC power module converter with 2250 VDC isolation and an adjustable output voltage of 0.85V to 7.0V within a power range of 15W/5A. While aimed primarily at high-end equipment applications, the PIM4820BPD allows the optimisation of board space and delivers board-level control of power consumption making the product also highly attractive for a broad range of ICT applications overall.

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.
