IEE’s Sunlight Readable, Rugged Handheld Displays Withstand Harsh Conditions In the Field

IEE, Inc., specializing in the design, test support and fielding of human system interface (HSI) display technologies in a wide range of military/aerospace, industrial and retail applications, offers a line of rugged, military-qualified handheld control display units (CDUs) that are sunlight readable and combat proven.

The wide range of display sizes and resolutions from 4-line 2.8” character displays up to full graphic displays and from 3.5” QVGA to 7.0”-wide SVGA, provides exceptional design flexibility for the system engineer. Typical equipment that uses IEE’s rugged CDUs include soldier- and vehicle-mount equipment as well as in man-pack hand-held use.

The units feature integrated multi-mode backlighting that provides sunlight readability and NVIS compatibility for enhanced viewing no matter how dim or bright the lighting may be.  This enables precise visual access to critical data.

In addition to the line’s standard products, IEE offers fully-customized CDUs based on user requirements.  Functions such as integrated touch screen interface can be

provided in resistive, IR, SAW or multi-touch technologies.  The low power, high performance reprogrammable microprocessor-based operation also enables exceptional customization

Browser-based versions of the CDUs access the web through a 10/100 Ethernet interface executing HTML 5.0, JAVA scripts, JAVA applets or other methods.

Operating at a maximum altitude of 36,000 ft, the CDUs feature a temperature range of -20°C to +70°C, with some units operating down to -40°C.  The units withstand transit shock and ground mobile vibration of 0.04 g2/Hz from 20-2,000 Hz at 1 Hour/Axis as well as submersion in up to 1 m of water for 2 hours.

IEE’s handheld devices meet a variety of military standards including MIL-STD-461/462 for EMI/EMC requirements; MIL-STD-810, MIL-S-901and MIL-STD-167 for environmental factors; MIL-P-7788 for panel construction and lighting; MIL-STD-3009 for NVIS and MIL-STD-704and MIL-STD-1275 for power.

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.
