Paris Air Show: AB Elektronik Builds on Early Aerospace Success

AB Elektronik, the sensor division of TT electronics, is making its comprehensive range of sensors available to the aerospace sector for the first time. Comprising over 500 standard items, the range includes pressure, temperature, position and proximity devices.

AB Elektronik specialises in developing sensor-based solutions for the most challenging sensing applications; many of their products are used in critical safety and high performance situations. The Company will be showing a wide range of products at the Paris Air Show in June, the first time it has shown its full range of capabilities there. Visitors to the AB Elektronik stand will be able to see working sensors using force feedback, sophisticated integrated sensors and sub-assemblies, as well as the latest HALOSENSOR(r) product, the NANO.

HALOSENSOR(r) will already be familiar to aerospace buyers. The system accurately locates blind holes in structures from 2mm to 100mm and improves drilling and alignment accuracy, leading to reduced scrap and increased efficiency. The system has been used on every Airbus aircraft built since 2003.

AB Elektronik has gained its credentials in the highly demanding automotive industry, with estimates suggesting that at least one of their devices is to be found in every German car, and in around half of all cars globally. Technology developed in the automotive field can be directly applied in aerospace. For example, CO2 reduction is a key driver, and monitoring of engine emissions using robust, high temperature sensors is in demand for both ground transportation and aircraft applications. In the aerospace sector, Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Embraer and a number of military organisations are already counted as customers.

The wide capability of the AB Elektronik sensors range makes them suitable for the demanding applications found in aerospace. For example, speed sensors are able to measure up to 350,000 rpm, while temperature sensors operate from -40 degC to 850 degC and remain highly accurate even in harsh environments. In addition to providing a standard range of sensors, AB Elektronik scientists and engineers enjoy the challenge of developing innovative solutions to customer problems.

"The Paris Air Show will be a great opportunity to talk with our aerospace contacts about their current problems and how our huge range of products can help" said Phillip Joyce, Global Business Development Director at AB Elektronik. "We have built a client base of some of the largest names in the business from our HALOSENSOR(r) range alone; now we are looking forward to addressing many more customer problems with the other exciting products we offer."

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.
