Vectron International Announces Small Form Factor Stratum 3 TCXO

Vectron International, a leader in the design and manufacture of Precision Oscillators and Timing Solutions for Communication, Industrial, Military & Space applications, today announced its new tight stability TCXO. The TX–801 offers ±100ppb stability in a 5mm x 3.2mm footprint. This product will be showcased in Booth 1300 at the MTT–S 2012 trade show in Montreal Canada, from June 19 – 21.

IP based applications have inherited legacy timing requirements, such as Stratum 3 levels of accuracy. Services that are now carried over packet switched networks need to comply with levels of performance that used to be delivered over the circuit switched networks of the past. The TX–801 is optimized for supporting timing requirements over modern IP based networks and meets the reduced cost and footprint expectations set by emerging timing applications.

"Often a reduced cost or small footprint TCXO will claim to be S3 compliant with suppliers just referring to their oscillator's static temperature stability" says Alan Mond, Vice President and General Manager of Vectron's Communication Business Unit. "The TX–801 is optimized for cost and footprint to fit in the new IP based cost models, but it has also been tested for full compliance with legacy S3 performance requirements, including drift and wander generation, making it a truly S3 compliant part in a small footprint".

In addition to the TX–801 TCXO, Vectron also offers customers a range of precision oscillators designed to support timing requirements over IP based networks, along with innovative clock path technology including OCXOs, TCXOs, XOs VCXOs, VCSOs and jitter attenuators that provide ultra low jitter timing solutions.

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 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.
