New PCB mounting Bulgin Fuseholders

Elektron Technology, owner of the Arcolectric, Bulgin and Sifam electronics manufacturing brands, introduces the FX0442 and FX0443; two new vertical, PCB-mounting fuseholder designs in Bulgin’s already extensive fuseholder range.

Accommodating 5 x 20mm fuses and rated at 10A, 250Vac with maximum power dissipation of 2.5W, the FX0442 and FX0443 are designed and manufactured for volume applications where PCB mounting offers a fast, economic method of integrating the fuse element into the circuit.

Both the FX0442 and FX0443 have straight PC spills with either hand-release or screwdriver/tool release caps. The caps are bayonet-fitting for quick, reliable insertion and removal of the fuse. Contact resistance of both fuseholders is <10mΩ and insulation resistance is rated at >10MΩ at 500V d.c.

Both fuseholders are qualified to shock-protection category PC2, meaning live parts are inaccessible with a standard test finger in accordance with IEC60529. Using nylon and polyester flame retardant materials with flammability ratings to UL94V-0 at 85˚C they pass the glow wire test to EN60695-2-12. Both fuseholders also have international approvals from VDE and UL covering both the USA and Canada.

“Elektron Technology is proud to introduce quality products like the FX0442 and FX0443 that offer engineers tangible benefits through what are actually quite simple design enhancements”, points out Owen Kivlin, Technical Director of Elektron Technology. “The design of the FX0442 and FX0443 offers designers another degree of flexibility on PCB orientation with the benefits of a durable wire-free assembly. PCB mounting certainly improves the build quality of the end products, as well as being easier to assemble”.

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.
