Teledyne Relays Announces New LB363/GLB363 LoopBack Relay Series New product designed with built-in 100nF capacitors for AC Bypass

Teledyne Relays introduces the first ever hermetically sealed LoopBack relay. Each LoopBack relay combines two DPDT electromechanical relays in one package that includes an internal bypass path for Automated Test Equipment (ATE) applications. The LoopBack relay combines the technology of two Teledyne RF300 Series relays which eliminates the need for external PCB traces in loop-back test applications. This innovation results in superior signal integrity and RF performance, while taking minimal board space. The LoopBack relay is designed for digital signaling applications and provides excellent signal integrity up to 12 Gbps data rates.

The LoopBack relay is available with two different internal paths: Through and AC Bypass. The Through path provides a loop-back path across high performance contact material, while the AC Bypass path adds a coupling capacitor across each loop-back path. The in-line capacitors allow designers to eliminate the footprints for external components, while performing AC bypass functions internal to the relay. The capacitors used features excellent signal integrity as well as low loss high frequency performance.

A typical loop-back load board application uses the Device Under Test (DUT) to test itself. In this method, the transmitter from the DUT is connected through a loop back path to the receiver of the DUT. The double pole design of the LoopBack relay is perfectly suited for differential signaling, allowing one relay to provide transmit and receive signals and their inversions to the DUT or through the bypass path.

In addition to the thru-hole mount (LB363 Series), the LoopBack Series relay is available in a surface mount configuration with stub leads and a ground shield (GLB363 Series). The surface mount ground shield provides improved high data rate and high frequency performance, as well as improved repeatability. Various ground pin configurations for the through lead models are available upon request.

The LB363 Series measures .335 x .805 x .375 inches, excluding leads (8.51 x 20.45 x 9.52 mm) and weighs .16 ounce (4.53g).

The GLB363 Series measures .335 x .805 x .415 inches, including ground shield (9.53 x 12.96 x 10.54 mm) and weighs .18 ounces (5.10g).

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 E

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 p


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.
