Advanced IP66 Enclosures Range Extended

Following customer demand, OKW have extended the highly successful ‘SMART-BOX’ range of plastic enclosures. These highly attractive IP66 enclosures have been designed for modern industrial electronics.

Typical applications will include heating and air conditioning controllers, monitoring systems, safety and security equipment and test and measurement devices.

Design engineers will appreciate the many unique design features of the ‘SMART-BOX’ series. For example, the case fixings screws and wall mounting shafts are hidden behind two hinged trims which are fitted in the lid.

The lid trims hinge wide to allow screw driver access, and are then clipped into the closed position. As a result, no visible fixings can be seen once the unit is mounted on the wall or machine.

The enclosures are molded in flame retardant ABS rated to UL 94 V-0. The standard colour is light gray, RAL 7035, and uniquely for this type of IP rated enclosures, the cases have a modern fine textured surface finish.

Internal screw pillars are moulded in the top and base parts for mounting PCBs, DIN-Rails, displays etc. Prices start from $30.

The ‘SMART-BOX’ enclosures are fully insulated to VDE 0100, and sealed to protection class IP66 (similar to NEMA 4X) for indoor and outdoor use. The molded gasket is designed for easy replacement during long term maintenance.

The range is now available in six standard sizes with external dimensions from 4.724” x 3.543” x 1.968” to 11.024” x 6.693” x 2.362”.

The cases are assembled by four rustproof stainless steel fixing screws which are positioned outside of the sealed interior. An optional key lock can also be fitted for security.

To aid installation and servicing, two plastic lid supports are also provided, and the wall fixing dimensions are molded onto the underside of the cases.

OKW can supply these ABS enclosures with additional holes for push-buttons, connectors and displays etc., plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, and RFI/EMI shielding.

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 M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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.
