Hoffman Two-Door, Floor-Mount Type 4 Enclosures Line Expanded

Pentair Technical Products announces the addition of four new 18-in. deep models to their Hoffman Two-Door, Floor-Mount Type 4 Enclosures, Bulletin Number A4L3. With the addition of the new models, the line includes solutions for an even wider range of applications. Featuring a UL Type 4 rating, these enclosures are ideal for use in indoor or outdoor environments where it is necessary to protect controls and instrumentation from wet, potentially corrosive environments.

A4L3 enclosures utilize the Hoffman™ POWERGLIDE™ Handle with three-point latching for secure closure. The latching system provides sufficient compression to meet UL Type 4 requirements without the use of quarter-turn latching, offering security as well as easy and quick access.

“By expanding the A4L3 line to include 18-in. deep models, Hoffman continues to serve as an industry leader in both technology and breadth of offering,” said Garrett Potvin, Product Manager for Pentair Technical Products. “While many alternative solutions rely on the combination of a three-point latching system and quarter-turn latches to achieve sufficient compression, the Hoffman models eliminate the quarter-turn latches, increasing ease-of-use while maintaining the UL rating.”

The four new models are available in the following sizes:
  •     62.06 x 48.06 x 18.06 in.
  •     62.06 x 60.06 x 18.06 in.
  •     74.06 x 60.06 x 18.06 in.
  •     74.06 x 72.06 x 18.06 in.
Additional features of A4L3 enclosures include a flange trough collar around the door opening to exclude liquids and contaminants. Plus, a removable center post permits easy back panel installation. For modification and customization options, customers can contact a Hoffman representative.

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.
