New 4–Channel, Compact, USB–Powered Oscilloscopes

The PicoScope 3000 Series of high–performance oscilloscopes has been expanded to include six new 4–channel models. The new oscilloscopes offer a maximum sampling rate of 1 GS/s (up to 10 GS/s effective for repetitive signals), a range of input bandwidths from 60 MHz to 200 MHz, and buffer memory depths from 4 M to 128 M samples. The new FlexiPower™ system allows the scopes to run on either USB or AC power. With an option of either a built–in function generator or a built–in arbitrary waveform generator, and a new, slim case design, these scopes are perfect for engineers and technicians needing a complete, portable test bench in a single unit.

The PicoScope oscilloscope software includes as standard all the oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer functions you would expect, as well as serial decoding, mask limit testing, segmented memory and advanced triggers: features that often cost extra on other manufacturers’ scopes. Running on your Windows PC, PicoScope shows waveforms on a large, clear display and allows easy zooming and panning under keyboard or mouse control. Other built–in features include persistence displays with fast waveform update rates, math channels, automatic measurements with statistics, programmable alarms, and decoding of I²C, UART/RS232, SPI, CAN bus, LIN and FlexRay signals. Updates to the software are released regularly, free of charge.

The advanced triggering modes include pulse width, interval, window, window pulse width, level dropout, window dropout, runt pulse, variable hysteresis, and logic. All triggering is digital, ensuring lower jitter, greater accuracy and higher voltage resolution than the analog triggering found on many competing scopes.

A free Software Development Kit (SDK) allows you to control the new scopes from your own custom applications. The SDK includes example programs in C, C++, Excel and LabVIEW, and can be used with any language that supports C calling conventions. The PicoScope software and SDK are compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

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 M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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.
