Panduit Showcases 40 Gigabit Ethernet Transmission Over 1 Kilometer of Multimode Fiber at Cisco Live

Panduit Corp., a global leader in Unified Physical InfrastructureSM (UPI)-based solutions, is a Platinum Sponsor of this year’s Cisco Live in San Diego, CA June 10-14. At the event Panduit will showcase how they help organizations become more agile and responsive to customer needs by implementing data center architectures that are optimized for both the logical and physical elements of the network.

At Cisco Live Booth #1034, Panduit will display the longest distance Ethernet transmission of its kind – 40 gigabit Ethernet over 1 kilometer of multimode optical fiber. This demonstration will use 40GBASE-SR4 QSFP+ Ethernet optical modules from Avago Technologies. Traffic will be generated and verified by an Ixia XM2 chassis outfitted with Xcellon-Lava™ Dual-Speed, 40/100GE Higher Speed Ethernet Load Module with Panduit® Signature Core™ multimode fiber cabling and low-loss MTP connectors.

The Panduit® Signature Core™ Fiber Optic Cabling System maintains signal integrity beyond that of all other types of multimode fiber. This technology provides network architects with the flexibility to deploy less expensive multimode fiber links versus more expensive singlemode links – a savings in excess of $1,000 per link. Additionally, the enhanced performance of Signature Core™ multimode fiber can enlarge the physical area of a 40GbE-based fabric architecture by a minimum of 25%, enabling data center managers to position the data center physical infrastructure for rapid future growth.

“We are excited to be showcasing our Signature Core™ Fiber Optic Cabling System at Cisco Live by transporting 40 Gigabit Ethernet traffic over an unprecedented distance of 1 kilometer” said Ian Brown, Director of Fiber Optic Products at Panduit. “The Signature Core™ Fiber Optic Cabling System gives network architects and data center managers the flexibility to reduce capital expenditures while providing increased network flexibility.”

Panduit provides the broadest line of fiber optic and copper cabling systems in the industry. Designed for high-density/high-speed applications, Panduit High Speed Data Transport (HSDT) solutions help ensure high network performance, system reliability and energy efficiency.

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…

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…


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.
