Handheld Enclosures for Touch Screen Technology

In response to the development of more mobile and independent electronic devices, and the growing use of touch screen technology, with graphical interfaces rather then traditional keypads, OKW have developed the new INTERFACE-TERMINAL enclosures.

These new electronic enclosures can be specified in different configurations to suit independent or cable connected mobile electronics.

The basic housing consists of the top and base parts molded in off-white ABS (UL 94 HB) with a modern contoured shape that is lightweight and very comfortable to hold in the hand.

The top part is available closed, with a recess for a membrane keypad or touch screen, or open for mounting an anodized aluminum front panel. The closed top has been designed for mounting 6.4” or 8.4” touch screens.

INTERFACE-TERMINAL enclosures are available with external dimensions of 7.480” x 5.315” x 1.456” (S) and 8.858” x 6.496” x 1.496” (M). and 10.826" x 7.677" x 1.496" (L).

The handheld enclosures can also be specified with or without a battery compartment for five 1.5V AA cells. The battery compartment can be mounted in the base to suit portrait or landscape orientation of the display/touch screen.

A desk station is also available, and has location tabs on the top for secure location of the enclosure. Both the case and the station can be fitted with five pole contacts for data transfer and charging.

OKW can supply the INTERFACE-TERMINAL with additional holes for the push-buttons, connectors and displays, plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, and RFI/EMI shielding.

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…
