Reliable Data Transmission Thanks to Special Shielding

Belden has added new Gigabit Ethernet connectors to its Lumberg Automation™ product range. These connectors, which support data rates of up to 10Gbps, have a compact design with special shielding that also covers the individual wire pairs, thus guaranteeing reliable data transmission even where there are strong electromagnetic fields. They are offered with M12 or RJ45 connection technology, and in both molded and self-assembly versions, optionally including individual cable lengths, making them flexible and quick to put into operation.

Other features include a robust design, a wide operating temperature range of from 30° to +90°C and – for the M12 versions – industrial protection class IP67. The Gigabit Ethernet connectors thus facilitate highly available and cost-effective solutions for a host of applications, such as connecting IP cameras and infotainment systems in rail vehicles – approval under EN 50155 has been applied for – or wiring up complex machines and systems.

The self-assembly M12 versions, with eight-pole connectors and couplings with x-coding and screw connectors, have a threaded joint. Cables are made up either using cut and clamp or – for the flanged versions – via print contacts. The molded M12 connectors also have eight-pole x-coding and, like the corresponding RJ45 versions, are available with made-up cables on one or both ends. A version with an M12 and an RJ45 connector is also available.

The molded M12 connectors and the RJ45 versions have bodies made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), while the self-assembly connectors are of nickel-plated die-cast zinc or brass (flange version). The optionally attached cables are made of halogen-free polyurethane (PUR) with AWG 26 cores. This also applies to the cables for the molded connectors, which are offered in lengths of 2, 5 or 10 meters.

With the launch of these new screened Gigabit Ethernet connectors from Lumberg Automation™, Belden is now marketing a comprehensive product portfolio that offers ideal solutions for a variety of requirements. Product Manager Joachim Kiera says: "These connectors can turn your network into a veritable data freeway because they all ensure maximum bandwidth. Since they are also extremely robust, they can be used even under the most rugged environmental conditions."

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 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.

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…
