IEE Develops 3D Display for Handheld Military Applications

IEE, Inc., specializing in the design, test support and fielding of human-systems interface (HSI) display technologies in a wide range of military/aerospace, industrial and retail applications, has integrated 3M’s revolutionary 3D film technology into an IEE handheld control display unit (CDU) to be employed in a wide variety of military training, visualization and remote observation applications.

Introduced in 2009, the field sequential 3D film eliminates the need for 3D glasses, which would greatly impede a soldier in the field or military personnel who work in remote locations. The combined technology of IEE’s field-proven, military-qualified handheld CDU with 3M’s autostereoscopic concept brings best-in-class imaging to military operations.

Steve Motter, vice president business development for IEE, stated, “ Today’s battlefields are data driven, with long range weapons systems and GPS technologies ruling how combat is conducted. Access to the most advanced graphics that provide superior depth perception gives a leg-up advantage to military personnel in the field. With this rugged 3D display, enhanced imagery will now be at the fingertips of our men and women on the battlefield.”

Norb Biderman, director, 3M Industrial and Transportation noted, “Not only will 3D imaging help with existing, in-the-field applications, but it will give the military a number of other ways to help ensure the safety of its men and women. The use of unmanned systems is on the rise, and actual 3D pictures will give viewers a much clearer picture and enhanced awareness of the situation being monitored. What’s more, think of a soldier who can now get a 360 degree view of his or her surroundings.”

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.
