Phihong's New Stonehenge Series LED Drivers with 100,000 Hour Measured Lifespans

Phihong USA, a leading global supplier of energy efficient and highly reliable power solutions for OEM lighting technology, has developed a new series of external AC/DC LED drivers that boast extended lifespans of up to 100,000 hours. The new Stonehenge series LED drivers are designed without E-caps, which dry out over time and shortenthe operating life of power supplies. A subset of the broader PDA012X Series, the Stonehenge Series consists of two drivers: the PDA012A-350C-H-R, which is designed for AC inputs of 220-277VAC, and the PDA012B-350C-H-R, which is designed for AC inputs of 100-120VAC. Both 350mA constant-current drivers operate at an output voltage range of 10-43VDC, and are ideal for applications including display lighting and small strings of high-intensity bulbs.

“Solid-state lighting provides greater energy savings and longer operating lifespans than incandescent or fluorescent lighting; however, most manufacturers cannot provide OEMs with power supplies that can match LEDs’ longevity,” said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA. “The new Stonehenge series, which boasts measured life spans of 100,000 hours, resolves this issue by meeting LED operation benchmarks, cutting energy costs, and lengthening the average amount of time between installation and maintenance or replacement services.”

The Stonehenge Series is designed to operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to 50°C at full power and -40°C to 60°C at reduced output power. Featuring an ingress protection rating of 20, the drivers are rated for dry environments only. Additionally, Stonehenge Series drivers come with an extended eight-year warranty, and their small, lightweight design enables easy integration into a variety of indoor and architectural design projects.

Standard features of the Stonehenge Series LED lighting power supplies include over-voltage, over-current, short-circuit, and open-circuit protections, including brownout and brownout recovery. The drivers also meet UL8750 and UL1310 requirements, bear safety approval markings for both UL and CE, and meet the specifications outlined by Energy Star for SSL luminaires, including a power factor correction of greater than 0.9.

The other constant-current LED power supplies in the PDA012X Series possess the same standard features as the Stonehenge Series models, but with lifespans of 50,000 hours. Thesemodels are available at a lower cost and come with a standard three-year warranty.

All LED drivers in the PDA012X series, which includes the two Stonehenge Series models, measure 132mm x 30mm x 22mm and weigh 150 grams. Pricing for the Stonehenge series models, designated PDA012X-350C-H-R, start at $68.61 in single unit quantities.

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.
