A World of Colour – Aluminium Switches from EAO

EAO, the expert partner for Human Machine Interfaces, presents a colourful range of hardwearing aluminium switches for industrial use.

With a wide choice of standard colours including gold, silver, blue, red and green, plus options for convex lenses or illuminated spot, EAO now offers the world’s largest variety of aluminium-fronted switches.
Aluminium lenses and front bezels are available for all pushbuttons and indicators in the Series 04, 14, 56, 61, 71 and 84 switch ranges. Not only providing extra protection for switches, they improve the look and feel of any human machine interface.

By standardising the colour and finish, customers can more effectively align colour to switch function to create easier to use, more intuitive controls panels. They can also mix-and-match switch types from different ranges according to their exact needs.

EAO can laser engrave lenses with any type of symbol or legend specified by the customer. The highly resistant finish adds an extra level of intuitiveness to any control panel, whether it’s a new design or a refurbishment project. Switches can be sealed up to IP67 (depending on series), which makes them suitable for a wide range of interior and exterior applications within aggressive factory environments, exposed lifting and moving machinery, public transportation vehicles, and platform equipment.

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.
