Higher Current Ratings for Bulgin's Standard Buccaneer Range

Bulgin’s range of Standard Buccaneer waterproof connectors now have higher current ratings for 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7 pole versions.

VDE have approved increased current ratings for 2 and 3 poles from 10A, 250V to 12A, 250V, 4 pole from 6A, 250V to 10A, 250V and 6 and 7 poles from 3A, 250V to 5A, 250V.

This well known, long standing range of IP68 rated connectors comprises 7 body styles, including flex, flex in-line, front and rear panel, PCB, bulkhead and flange mounting and are available in 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 12 and 25 poles. Ratings range from 1A, 50V to 12A, 250V.

Cable acceptance for the flex and flex in-line connectors is 6 to 8mm diameter cable as standard, extending to 3.5 - 9mm with the use of alternative glands, and colour coded identification variants are available in all styles.

Accessories include sealing caps, insulation boot, cable support accessory and our new rear of panel mounting backshell, which provides a rear of panel seal to the panel mounting connectors in this range.

The Standard Buccaneer range carries UL and CSA approvals, as well as VDE approval for the higher ratings.

This range is ideal for applications were the ingress of dust or water is inherent, and will now be extended with the new higher current ratings. Possible applications include water monitoring meters, traffic control systems, CCTV systems, HVAC, environmental monitoring systems, underwater communications equipment, medical equipment.

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.
