The New VARTA Professional Batteries for The Open Seas and Open Roads

Johnson Controls is presenting two new battery ranges for use in water sports, caravans and camper vans at the boot 2011 fair. They are highly reliable and maintenance-free - the right choice for rough conditions on board.

When you are out and about on the water or in natural surroundings, you need to know that you can rely 100% on your power supply battery, especially when extreme conditions are involved. Johnson Controls has the perfect products for such situations. The battery specialist has launched two new ranges of batteries for boats, caravans and camper vans under its brand name VARTA Professional. They boast improved performance and have been developed specifically to cope with the increasing number of electrical devices found on board. The batteries are a reliable source of power for places without electricity sockets and are now available as improved wet cell batteries and in a high-performance AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) version. The leading battery manufacturer will be unveiling both battery versions to the public at the boot 2011 fair.

The robust VARTA Professional Deep Cycle is just the ticket if what you need is a power supply for a large number of electrical devices. It offers a high degree of performance, and is almost twice as cyclically stable as conventional batteries, thanks to its new and improved wet cell technology. The battery is maintenance-free thanks to a special Labyrinth lid. And with its minimal self-discharge, it is perfect for seasonal use.

The VARTA Professional Deep Cycle AGM draws on the very best battery technology currently available, namely AGM technology. The battery acid is held in a glass mat, with the open structure of the glass mat and the small spacing between the electrodes resulting in a good discharging capacity and high resistance to knocks and shocks.

Together with the battery's excellent cyclic stability, this means the battery will last for a long time. It is securely sealed and is therefore 100% leak-proof. All of these traits make it a reliable partner away from campsites and moorings too.

With VARTA Professional Deep Cycle and VARTA Professional Deep Cycle AGM, Johnson Controls has developed two extremely efficient and high-performance battery ranges that set new standards for batteries used on boats and yachts, in camper vans and caravans, and which give users maximum freedom and flexibility when far away from coastlines and civilization.

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.
