New Safety Network Controller Can Eliminate Programming with Pre-Configured, TUV-Certified Templates

Omron Scientific Technologies, Inc. introduces the NE0A-SCPU01 Safety Network Controller. The NE0A provides twelve safety inputs, two test outputs and six safety outputs. This safety network controller can be used as a standalone controller, a safety slave or a DeviceNet standard slave. The NE0A is unique in that it features pre-configured and TUV-certified program templates for the user to select based on an application's safety requirements, potentially eliminating any programming needs. Users can easily create safety circuits and save them as templates and reuse them on multiple NE0A units for fast, simple standardization.

The NE0A includes safety function blocks for e-stop, door switch, external device monitoring (EDM), safety light curtain, limit switch, enabling switch and mode selector. The NE0A is a cost effective safety network control solution ideal for smaller safety networking applications that have a smaller number of I/O points. For larger safety networking applications, Omron STI's NE1A series programmable safety network controller can be used.

Potential applications include automobile parts on automotive lines, semiconductor lines or cells, flat panel display lines or cells, printing and packaging machines, machine tools, molding machines, electronic components and manufacturing equipment for office automation products.

A force set/reset feature allows users to simulate signals from the network, enabling them to debug the NE0A independent of the network. A USB port allows direct USB connectivity to a computer so that an NE1A master is not required for programming. NE0A operating conditions can be monitored from a standard DeviceNet Master, and network expansion is possible by adding an NE1A Safety Controller to the network. Network Configurator software version 2.1 or higher is required for programming the NE0A.

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…
