Handheld Enclosures with Trigger Action

OKW have added two new models to the unique SENSO-CASE series of hand controller enclosures. These new electronic enclosures have an integrated push-button switch, in the natural trigger position on the underside of the case, which ensures logical fatigue free operation of the unit for activation and logging functions.

Typical applications will include measuring and control units, machine and robot controllers, stock and sales logging equipment, medical and laboratory technology and opto-electronics.

SENSO-CASE enclosures have an ergonomic hand grip profile with a large head section, and are molded in off-white or lava gray ABS (UL 94 HB). The external dimensions are 7.086" x 3.385" x 1.771". The design consists of four parts: top, base, battery compartment lid, and end panel. Screw pillars are provided inside for mounting PCBs, keypads, cable clamps etc.

The new models are supplied with a single pole push-button switch (max. 28V/100mA), assembly elements for the switch, and an orange rubber button cover molded in soft TPE. 

These handheld enclosures permit both right and left-handed operation, and can be used as mobile units with battery power or connected via a cable. The battery compartment will accept two 1.5V AA or one 9V cell. Optional cable glands replace the standard end panel, and along with a cable clamp, can be used for fitting the control cable. 

The head section has a recessed area in the top for fitting membrane keypads, LCD modules, rubber keypads or push-buttons.  The large front face can be used for mounting sensors or scanners.

OKW can supply the SENSO-CASES 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…

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.
