Fox Now Offers Widest Range of AEC-Q200-Qualified Crystal Oscillators

Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions, now offers the widest range of AEC-Q200-qualified crystal oscillators, which meet the stringent stress test requirements set for passive components used in automotive applications. The new oscillators are available with a frequency range of 2 MHz up to 135 MHz, -40°C to +85°C, with 2 MHz to 48 MHz available from -40°C to +125°C.

Certified to AEC grades 1-4 as well as to the ISO/TS-16949 specification, Fox's FA5xx and FA4xxx series withstand the rigorous environmental and operational conditions to which automobiles are subjected.

Due to their compliance with these stringent industry testing parameters, the oscillators are ideal for use in a variety of automotive safety and diagnostic applications, where reliability is critical to protecting the occupants. These include tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), navigation, antilock brake systems (ABS), air bags and proximity sensors. They can also be cost-effectively used for in-car multimedia applications, such as entertainment systems and back up cameras.

Frequency stabilities are as tight as ±25 ppm with aging of just ±5 ppm per year at 25°C. Standard configurations include package sizes of 7 mm x 5 mm and 5 mm x 3.2 mm in voltages of 1.8 V, 2.5 V or 3.3 V, with more options available upon request.

The seam-sealed oscillators are RoHS- and REACH-compliant with gold terminations. Both series feature an output load of 15 pF (HCMOS), a start-up time of 10 mS and a standby current of 10 uA as well as output disable and enable times of 100 nS and 10 mS, respectively. Output symmetry is 40% to 60%, with 45% to 55% available upon request.

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.
