Oslux LED Offers New Design Options for Smartphones

New flash LED from Osram Opto Semiconductors harmonizes form and function. Osram Opto Semiconductors has added a new type of LED to its well-known Oslux family. With flash applications compromises no longer have to be accepted – due to its specially shaped lens the Oslux LED can be discreetly fitted in the device. Thanks to its high output power the new LED is also capable of taking perfectly illuminated shots with cellphones. This means design and function of smartphones work together even more closely.

Manufacturers of high-end smartphones often have to choose between design and functionality. A particular challenge here is combining the actual camera with the lighting needed. Technical components can look bulky with some cellphone designs. Plus, the recesses in the enclosure also make the device less robust. According to Matthias Winter, responsible for marketing LED consumer applications at Osram Opto Semiconductors, “These days a smartphone is more than ever a design object. With the Oslux LED we bring form and function together.”

With the new Oslux LED for flash applications Osram Opto Semiconductors supports smartphone manufacturers in their attempt to combine shape and function. The Oslux LED has two chips with 1 square millimeter of light surface each. The light-emitting surface of the rectangular LED is optimized for the optics of the cellphone – the surface is flat and finishes properly with the cover. This means the Oslux LED can be installed inconspicuously in the phone. No additional covers or lenses are necessary. With its symmetrical emission the LED can be installed vertically or horizontally. When switched off, the LED is barely noticeable. When in use, high quality white illuminates the target area.

Thanks to UX:3 chip technology, the Oslux LED provides very consistent illumination for photos. Even at a distance of 1 m a brightness level of 150 lux is achieved. When flashing, the light is evenly distributed and shines into the corners of the rectangular illuminated image. This means no round spot is generated in the center as might occur in conventional flashing. As all the elements of the flash are combined in a single component, the Oslux LED is also easily integrated. Thanks to its compact design, the LED is exceptionally durable and resistant to shocks and vibrations – and its power means it can manage even multiple repeated flashes.

The new Oslux joins the current portfolio of flash LEDs with lenses. The Ceramos LED family offers components without lenses.

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.

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 power…
