Guard Locking Safety Door Switch from Omron STI Boasts World's Top Holding Force of Any Switch in it's Class

Omron Scientific Technologies, Inc. introduces the D4JL guard locking safety door switches. The IP67 rated switch provides an incredible holding force of 3,000 N (674 Lbs.), making it a perfect solution for safely locking the largest and heaviest of doors. Two safety circuits and two monitor contacts provide an array of monitoring patterns, including monitoring the open/closed status of the door and the status of the lock. Standard gold-clad contacts enable use with microloads and ordinary loads.

D4JL models are available with rear release buttons that allow workers to unlock the switch from inside the protected area and exit the hazardous areas. Trapped key models are also available, and are designed to prevent workers from being locked in hazardous work areas. With trapped key models, the door can be opened only by supplying power to the solenoid to release the trapped key lock, and then turning and removing the trapped key. As long as a person has the trapped key when he enters a hazardous area, he cannot be accidentally locked inside. It is not possible to enter the hazardous area without the trapped key because the trapped key must be removed to open the door. Thirty different types of trapped keys are available for use in applications with adjacent hazardous areas.

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

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…
