MSM LA - Robust Latching Action Switches in Attractive Metal Design

The robust switch type MSM LA from SCHURTER has been redesigned and is now also available with point illumination. For displaying the switching status or for providing visibility during night-time use, the illumination colors red, green and blue are available. The switch is designed with either a one- or two-pole contact, and is intended for a switching capacity of 250 VAC max. and 12 A max. For direct voltage, the switch was tested up to 125 VDC.

The MSM LA is available in 19 mm and 22 mm mounting diameters and suitable for use in temperatures ranging from -40 °C to +85 °C. It provides physical and visual indication and may also be used in conjunction with audible devices required by ADA. With an actuating travel greater than 5 mm, the MSM LA is ideal for use in applications where increased feedback of the switching status (ON/OFF) is required.

Additionally, the switching status is easy to discern by looking at, or feeling, the resting position of the actuator. In the OFF state, the actuator position protrudes from the housing; in the ON state, it is depressed into the housing. This provides a user-friendly actuating function and also prevents inadvertent switching, e.g. caused by objects leaning on the switch.

The standard type as well as the versions with ring illumination and now also point illumination may be provided with lettering using standard or customer-specific characters. The laser lettering process is carried out in-house.

Due to the stable stainless steel housing as well as the high impact strength, the switch is particularly suitable for use in devices with rough ambient conditions or for vandal-proof applications.

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 E

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 p


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.
