B&K Precision Releases Low-Cost Programmable Switching DC Power Supplies

B&K Precision today introduced its new line of bench switching mode DC power supplies, models 1685B, 1687B, and 1688B. Each model offers a different configuration of variable output voltage and current: 1-60V, 0-5A (1685B); 1-36V, 0-10A (1687B); and 1-18V, 0-20A (1688B). All models provide constant voltage (CV) and constant current (CC) modes, bright 3-digit LED displays, and rotary encoder control knobs for precise coarse and fine voltage and current settings. Complemented with a compact form factor and low cost, these DC power supplies are practical for use in university labs, R&D, service, and production testing.

Where space is valuable, many electronic systems rely on the flexibility of lightweight and compact power supplies. The reduced-size design of these switching power supplies has significantly increased power density and provides high efficiencies of 80% or more.

Sharing similarities to B&K Precision's high-power 1900 Series switching supplies in both function and form, these new models have a front panel auxiliary output and three user-defined voltage and current presets for quick recall of common test parameters. An analog remote control terminal is accessible on the rear allowing users to connect external variable DC voltage sources or variable resistors to remotely control the output voltage and current, or remotely enable and disable the power supply output.

In addition to the analog remote control function, models 1685B, 1687B, and 1688B provide a USB interface for remote PC connectivity. Users can easily control their instrument via the included PC software or by sending remote programming commands.

All three models offer built-in overvoltage protection (OVP), overtemperature protection (OTP), and overload protection (OLP) circuitry.

Available immediately, B&K Precision's 1685B, 1687B, and 1688B are listed at a price of $339 each.

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 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.

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…
