Streamlight® Launches Vehicle Solar Charging Panel — Streamlight SolarStream™ Preserves Vehicle Battery

Streamlight®, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance flashlights, today introduced the Streamlight SolarStream™, a supplemental solar charging panel for emergency responder and fleet vehicles. The Streamlight SolarStream helps to offset battery drain from computer systems and other rechargeable electronics when a vehicle is off, extending battery life and limiting battery-related vehicle maintenance.

A thin-film amorphous silicon charging panel, the Streamlight SolarStream adheres to a variety of contoured surfaces. The panel allows for 14 watts of maximum power in full sunlight.

"With the Streamlight SolarStream, first responders can charge lights, radios, and other electronics with less fear of draining their vehicle's battery," said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. "The Streamlight SolarStream uses more of the available sunlight because it is not dependent on a mounting angle, as required with other systems."

The charging system works by dispensing up to one amp of current to a vehicle's battery, helping to prevent it from draining completely and reducing the need for jump-starts and frequent battery replacement due to battery drain. The Streamlight SolarStream maintains a trickle charge to the vehicle battery even in low sun and cloudy conditions, and is both heat and shade tolerant.

The panel measures 40.88 inches long by 13.07 inches wide, and weighs 1.3 pounds. The product's encapsulated amorphous silicon technology offers exceptional durability and weather resistance. The product has been extensively police tested, and is tested for wind resistance to 120 miles per hour.

Designed to directly wire to a vehicle's battery, the panel is packaged with a fuse holder and fuse, which will automatically cut off power from the panel if the included cord is damaged. The 20-foot 18AWG cord allows for a variety of installation conditions.

The Streamlight SolarStream comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty and has an MSRP of $400.00.

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.
