New 2U-High VME64x System Offers Four Slots for Horizontal Board Mounting

New from electronics packaging specialist Schroff is a fully assembled, wired and tested VME64x subrack system that can accommodate up to four 6U boards mounted horizontally in an enclosure just 2U high.

This compact, space-saving system is particularly suitable for telecommunications, instrumentation and control, automation and military applications.

The new system consists of a black, powder-coated steel plate case with a built-in monolithic VME64x backplane that meets the VITA 1.1-1997 specification and is equipped with P0 connectors.

To the right of the VME64x backplane is a 3U-wide power backplane with two P47 connectors, which allows two 19in. compatible 250W PSUs to be installed for redundant operation. If a second PSU is not required, one of these slots can be used for other components such as hard disks.

All slots are provided with guide rails, including coding to IEEE 1011.10/.11, and ESD clips. Efficient cooling of the subrack system is ensured by a hot-swappable fan tray incorporating two powerful yet low-noise fans, further aided by the 75% perforation of the side panels. Two LEDs are provided on the front panel for monitoring the fan and supply voltages.

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…


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.

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…
