Anderson Power Products (APP), a leader in power interconnect solutions, has added the Power Drawer series of connectors to its high quality connector range. The family features blind mating connectors for 35 or 75 amp applications. These versatile Power Drawer connectors are used on “N + 1” power supply and rectifier systems ideal for server, telecommunications and network applications. APP’s durable connectors are UL recognized and are able to mate with competitive products, offering the designer and user further development and sourcing options.

APP’s 35 amp Power Drawer connectors can be configured with up to eight #12AWG power contacts,eight #16 awg power contacts or a combination of four #16 awg power contacts, four #12 awg power contacts and twenty-one #20 awg signal contacts. APP’s 75 Power Drawer connectors can be configured with up to four #8 AWG power contacts, nine #12AWG power contacts and twenty four #20 awg signal contacts. Float mount and Printed Circuit Board mount versions are available for both connectors.

Pin and socket contacts are available for both connectors with crimp, solder cup or printed circuit board termination. In addition, the connector’s pin contacts can be specified for first-mate and last-mate connection, allowing the electronic system to be grounded and mating electronically verified before the power circuits are energized.

Anderson Power Products is also offering “true hot plug” contacts to accompany its Power Drawer connector family. The #12 awg contacts are rated for disconnect interruption up to 25 amps. These “hot plug” contacts are available for both the 35 and 75 amp Power Drawer connector families.

Designed to correct misalignment during blind mating, APP’s Power Drawer Connectors feature integral guide pins, with an optional floating mount used to reduce fatigue stress on the connector during blind mating.

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 E

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 p


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.
