OSRAM SYLVANIA Introduces Distributed Array Family of LED Substitutes For Linear Fluorescent Systems

Continually at the forefront of solid-state lighting (SSL) innovation, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA introduces its Distributed Array portfolio of LED systems designed to replace linear fluorescent systems with more efficient LED solutions while providing comparable or improved light quality. The flexible and innovative Distributed Array portfolio offers a solid-state alternative for fluorescent systems in ambient lighting applications ranging from offices to retail environments.

Available in four different board sizes, the Distributed Array boards consist of multiple low-power LEDs in a precise layout that enables thermal self-management and eliminates the need for supplemental heat sinking. The precise distribution of the low-power LEDs generates even, diffuse light, minimizing glare, maximizing optical efficiency and reducing “hot spots,” or dark areas often created between lamps of fluorescent systems. Aside from having an extended service life rated at 50,000 hours, the Distributed Array LEDs are dimmable to 10 percent, allowing for further flexibility and efficiency in a variety of applications.

Utilizing state of the art LED technology, the Distributed Array portfolio is also available in three high-performance modules, each offering a different balance of light output and efficacy for illumination applications. The “high efficacy” module delivers up to 120 lumens per watt with a slim profile ideal for fixtures designed for T5 lamps. The “high brightness” module designed for T8 lamps delivers over 1000 lumens with tight color control.  The “balanced performance” module is an energy efficient array driven at low current while maintaining color consistency. Thanks to its modular and intelligent design, the system simplifies luminaire design, while minimizing materials and reducing waste. The LED Distributed Array portfolio is RoHS compliant and UL recognized and exceeds both ANSI and IEC criteria for color tolerance of fluorescent lamps

Incredibly efficient, the OSRAM SYLVANIA LED Distributed Array LED modules are designed for optimum performance when paired with OPTOTRONIC® OT50 constant current power supplies for maximum system efficiency and life expectancy.

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.
