SafeNight™ Product Line

Wamco has further expanded its SafeNight™ product line, and now offers NVIS Polymeric Materials in sheet thicknesses up to 0.250”. Wamco’s unique polymeric materials are recognized all over the world for their superior optical and physical performances. Based on proprietary formulations, these materials are designed to absorb very specific portions of the electromagnetic energy spectrum. They are broadly used in applications where the emitted light needs to satisfy stringent requirements of MIL-STD-3009 for night vision compatibility.

The SafeNight™ product line is already well-known in the industry, and was recently acclaimed for its performance in the field as a mission critical optical component for portable devices. Wamco’s materials have been available for years in standard and custom colors with thicknesses ranging from 0.012” to 0.100”. However, today’s designers want the flexibility to integrate optical modification characteristics in very complex forms, and in response, Wamco is now offering its polymeric materials in sheet thicknesses up to 0.250”. As a result, this physical format provides designers the ability to obtain complex machined shapes, with formulations optimized for a finished wall thickness of 0.028”. The materials are, of course, based on Wamco’s proven chemistry and provide unmatched temperature, fire, and shock resistance.

As always, Wamco maintains its dedication to providing superior customer service, and offering material in finished conditions. Whether molded, formed, or machined, the parts can be further customized with different surface finishes such as anti-glare or anti-reflection hard coats.

Wamco’s understanding of light behavior at the quantum level, combined with its expertise in material science and in-depth understanding of optics, has made Wamco a leader in the Aerospace and Defense industry. Wamco has mastered precise energy management technologies in a broad range of UV, Visible, NIR, and Infrared applications.

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.
