BELDEN EXTENDS ITS LUMBERG AUTOMATION PRODUCTS TO INCLUDE TWO NEW ACTUATOR AND SENSOR INTERFACE MODULES WITH ENCAPSULATED PUR HOUSING AND HIGH SIGNAL DENSITY

Belden, a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, announces the availability of two new actuator/sensor interface (AS-Interface) modules with encapsulated PUR housing (highly resistant to cooling lubricants) with high signal density.

The modules feature either an integrated T-piece functionality or piercing contacts. Both versions are slave modules with four digital inputs for two- or three-wire sensors and four digital outputs for standard actuators. Two inputs and two outputs are Y-connected and both modules support the latest AS-Interface profile in accordance with AS-Interface specification V3.0, providing the connection of up to 1,000 digital inputs/outputs. Compared to previous versions, the signal density has doubled. Each module contains eight M12 sockets for digital inputs and outputs. The assignment of Slave addresses is accomplished via the modules’ M12 bus connection by using an addressing unit and a connection cable.

Robert Strehmann, Product Manager says, “The modules’ high signal density will save users a significant amount of money because, depending on the network topology, they will require fewer modules overall.” Both versions (0910 ASL 146 and 0910 ASL 438) comply with the IEC 61076-2-101 and IEC 61131 standards, are IP 67 rated, and are suitable for use in temperature ranges from -25°C to +80°C. The power supply is designed for 11 to 30 V and the modules can be securely fastened with three screws. The dimensions of each module are 152 x 60 x 35.8 mm (length x width x depth).

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…
