Ground-Breaking New Products for Rail Vehicle Control Panels

EAO, your expert partner for Human Machine Interfaces, has unveiled some ground-breaking new products for passenger access, drivers' desks and rail vehicle control panels.

Representing the latest in technology, the new Series 57 pushbutton is the first all-in-one door-opener to combine optical, tactile and acoustic features in a single pushbutton. Fully compliant to EN 14752, TSI-PRM and ADA standards, it features an extra large Ø74mm operating area, the option of an integrated finding tone, and a tool-less final mounting system.

A new Series 57 warning light is also available for use alongside the pushbutton to make people aware when passenger doors are opening or closing. It is front protected to IP69K and features an extra large lens with optimum 180-degree visibility. It mounts using the same fast, tool-less final mounting system.
Series 57 products will fit industry-standard mounting holes so vehicle operators can easily upgrade their existing door openers.

For drivers' desks and other control panels, EAO offers Series 04 switches and pushbuttons constructed in accordance with UIC 612 guidelines. The 04 range includes square and round pushbuttons, indicators, selector and keylock switches as well as special lever switches for operating specific controls, typically braking and lighting.

A push-in terminal from Phoenix Contact is available for the Series 04 range, which reduces assembly times by up to 70% compared to screw terminals and creates a more secure, reliable connection.

Visit EAO at INNOTRANS, Berlin, 18-21 September, Hall 6.2, stand 231 where our experts will give you a personal demonstration of the new Series 57 and show you round our full range of innovative, reliable and intuitive rail-industry products.

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 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
