Product News: GR Resistance Decade

Prime Technology, LLC of North Branford, CT introduces the PDS series of programmable resistance decades, designed specifically for performing highly accurate calibration of resistance controllers.  For over 40 years, Prime Technology, LLC has been in the business of producing  instruments of an accuracy that permits critical testing of production line equipment and others of even higher accuracy that calibrate test instruments .
The PDS-99 has a resistance range from 1 Ohms to 1.2 Mohms while the PDS-85 and PDS-96 have a range of 0.1 Ohms to 300 Kohms and 100 mOhms to 10 Mohms, respectively. The temperature coefficient for each unit is less than 1 ppm/°C and all are capable of 2, 3 and 4 wire connection. 

The accuracy of resistance for the PDS-99 (with 4 wires) at 16-400 Ohms is 0.003% (+/- 3 mOhms); from 400 Ohms to 2 Kohms the accuracy is 0.005%, and from 2-10 Kohms, 0.015%.  The PDS-85 has an accuracy of 0.05% (+/- 15 mOhms) between 10-200 Ohms, 0.02% between 200 Ohms – 10 Kohms, 0.05% at 10 Kohms -50Kohms, 0.1% at 50 – 100 Kohms, and 0.5% between 100 – 300 Kohms.  The PDS-96 has an accuracy of 0.05% (+/- 15 mOhms) at 0.1 – 200 Ohms, 0.02% at 200 Ohms to 2 Mohms, and 0.05% between 2 and 10 Mohms.

Both the PDS-99 and PDS-85/96 operate within a temperature range of 5-40°C and a voltage of 100-240VAC/50-60 Hz. The units feature a simple keypad operation for value selection and a back-lit LCD display for easy viewing.  Additionally, each model is conveniently programmable via a RS232 computer interface.  Weighing less than 9 pounds and enclosed in a robust metal housing make the resistance decades both portable and rugged.

Prime Technology, LLC, a privately-held company headquartered in North Branford, CT is a proprietary manufacturer of precision instruments and systems, serving the commercial, nuclear, and military marketplaces. The company's five divisions manufacture products ranging from intricate electromechanical assemblies to state-of-the-art electronics.  Prime Technology is a vertical manufacturer with on-site machine shop, tool room, and molding facilities.  These capabilities enable it to produce to stringent nuclear and military specifications.

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.
