Universal Real-Time I/O Functionality for ProfiNet

The new I/O modules from the LioN-M series of Belden’s Lumberg Automation™ portfolio enable sensors and actuators to be linked into real-time ProfiNet I/O networks, with their two-port switches (10/100 Mbps) that support both the real time (RT) and isochronous real time (IRT) standards. BOOTP (bootstrap protocol) and DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) ensure fast and easy startup.

Each of the 16 digital channels has a rated output current of up to 1.6A, with a maximum total current capacity of 9A. In the 0980 ESL 711 (16DI) module these channels can be used as inputs, and in the universal version 0980 ESL 700 (16DIO Universal) they can also be used as outputs in any combination. The easy diagnostic concept enables precise fault location for each individual port. Both modules facilitate line topologies and you can also continue to use existing communications structures such as cable ducts and energy chains without making any changes to their physical layout. This means that there is usually no need to install cost-intensive star cabling and additional switches. The universal module also offers the highest possible degree of flexibility, not only at the planning stage but also when making changes at the commissioning stage or during subsequent upgrades.

Both network ports are equipped with four-pole M12 connectors with D coding, and the eight I/O slots, each of which can be assigned to two digital I/O signals, have five-pole M12 connectors with A coding. The network ports are color-coded to prevent any possible confusion. The IP address is set up via web server, BOOTP or DHCP. The slots on the universal module can be used as inputs and outputs in any combination without needing to be individually parameterized. Both modules are configured directly via the user interface of the control unit.

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…
