Duncan Electronics, a division of BEI Technologies, Inc., has developed a fully sealed, harsh environment rotary position sensor. This sensor can be used in both position feedback and operator input applications. The device is rated to meet the requirements of International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 529 for Enclosure Protection IP66 AND IP67.

This new generation sensor assembly offers a very slim design. It can withstand over 1 million full rotation cycles and 5 million dither cycles. The device is fully sealed and is impervious to contamination and moisture. The sensor can withstand temperatures as high as 125°C with continuous operation. The all plastic (Valox ™) construction is ideally suited for use in the harshest industrial and commercial corrosive environments.

BEI Duncan has satisfied the need for low profile, high performance sensor packages to meet the demanding requirements in new position feedback applications. The 9850 Series offers numerous standard and custom options including dual-output, sealed integral interface to Packard Electric METRI-Pack connectors, and a low profile.

Twelve standard models offer a choice of 180 or 120 mechanical rotation with round or slotted mounting holes for optimal installation alignment. The performance features coupled with the flexibility of design allow it to be easily integrated into a wide variety of existing and new applications. Pricing starts at under $17.00 each in 1,000 piece 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. 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…
