Crydom Announces the "LifePlus Series" of Pluggable AC & DC Output All Solid State Relays

Crydom's new LifePlus ED series of AC and DC output pluggable Solid State Relays offer Electromechanical Relay users the opportunity to directly replace traditional 12 x 29 mm EMRs with Crydom's proven Solid State Relay Technology. Solid State Relays offer substantial performance advantages over traditional EMR switching solutions in many applications including significantly greater life expectancy (>100 million operations), contactless high speed switching eliminating contact bounce and resulting electrical noise, precise logic compatible control inputs, acoustically silent operation and high vibration resistance, among many others.

Available in a SPST N.O. configuration, the LifePlus ED series offers output ratings of either 3 or 5 amps rms at 24 to 280 VAC, or 5 amps dc at 1 to 48 or 1 to 80 VDC, all at 40 °C ambient temperature. AC outputs incorporate Crydom's proven Back-to-Back SCR technology while DC outputs utilize high efficiency FETs, both technologies resulting in the lowest possible on-state power dissipation and high surge current ratings which make the "Crydom LifePlus" an excellent choice for applications such as small Motors, Solenoids, Heaters and Lamps. Optically isolated control inputs available include 3 to 15 VDC, 18 to 32 VDC, 48 to 72 VDC, 18 to 36 VAC and 90 to 140 VAC.

Crydom's LifePlus ED series relays are UL 508 recognized for both general purpose and motor control applications and compliant to IEC 62314 LC-A resistive and LC-B inductive application requirements. They are also CE certified to the IEC Low Voltage Directive and compliant to the IEC EMC Directive. The LifePlus ED series relays are available in the industry standard 12 x 29 mm plug-in relay package and fit standard DIN rail and PCB mountable sockets, allowing direct replacement of SPST N.O. EMRs in most applications. Featuring all solid state construction, LifePlus ED series SSRs provide an excellent improvement in performance over traditional EMRs.

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.
