AZ Displays Introduces New TFT Product Line

AZ Displays, Inc., a TFT LCD solution provider, announced today a new line of TFT displays. The 7.0 inch WVGA (800 x 480) TFT display is available in three options for the industrial market segment. “AZ Displays is always looking for ways to help our customers build quality products at a reasonable cost,” said Jim Kennedy, president, AZ Displays. “Our new line of 7.0 inch WVGA TFT displays fit multiple applications, enabling customers to easily upgrade a product from a low power display to one that can be used outdoors without having to change expensive bezels and enclosures. Moreover, we offer long-term product support for up to five years and maintain supply in the U.S. for overnight shipping when necessary.”

The new displays are the first TFT product completely designed, developed and manufactured in AZ Displays’ ISO-9001:2008 manufacturing facility in Xiamen, China. Further differentiating the displays from the competition, they come in three options, each featuring an extended temperature LCD module with LED backlight and 800 x 480 resolution. Additional custom options are available including optical bonding, specialized low reflection cover glass and touch screens. The seven inch TFT displays are part of an entire series currently under development by AZ Displays.

“AZ Displays has leveraged the knowledge gained from manufacturing specialized monochrome graphics and character LCD modules for rugged, industrial applications and applied it to building these key TFT modules,” said Kennedy. “Customers looking for long-term product support, high reliability and a variety of options will find these TFT displays ideal for a wide assortment of applications.”

Available in three brightness options, each with the same mechanical form factor, the new displays are ideal for everything from video phones, GPS systems, medical, military, gas pumps and security industries. The first option, with 250 nit brightness, has been created to be used in low power products such as hand held or battery powered device. The second option, with 500 nit brightness, has been designed for industrial applications like instrumentation or medical. And with 1,000 nit brightness, the third option is ideal for rugged, high ambient light conditions. While the 250 nit and the 500 nit option are available now, the 1,000 nit option will be available in Q3 2011.

Beyond just brightness, the new AZ Displays’ TFTs offer many options for interface, touch screen and an A/D board kit, enabling customers to make AZ Displays their one-stop LCD solution. Each display comes standard with a digital RGB interface with built in T-Con. As the circuitry required to interface is minimal, design and development time for customers is significantly reduced. For those customers requiring a touch screen option, AZ Displays has a four wire resistive touch screen version available as a standard, but custom option like Projective Capacitive are available upon request. Finally, these displays are offered as a bundled kit with a controller board, allowing customers to get the display up and running quickly using VGA (ARGB) or a composite video source.

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.
