Versatile Photoelectrics with IP69K Rating

Carlo Gavazzi proudly launches a new generation of compact photoelectric sensors in a combination rectangular and M18 housing, for universal mounting. The versatile PH18 Series brings new features, longer sensing ranges, and new options - in a housing that fits just about anywhere!

The new housing design of PH18 allows the sensor to be mounted to a bracket using mounting holes & screws or as a traditional M18 sensor with mounting nut. In addition, a new snap mounting bracket that provides a flush mount with a single jam nut is included with every sensor. And the new PH18 is IP69K rated for high pressure/high temperature wash downs, with ECOLAB certification for food & beverage applications.

Some additional features of the new PH18 include:
  •     Diffuse sensing up to 1m
  •     Retro-reflective sensing up to 6.5m
  •     Polarized retro-reflective sensing up to 5m
  •     Through-beam sensing up to 20m
  •     All models have a potentiometer for easy adjustment of sensing range
  •     Two LEDs indicate signal quality and power and target detection
  •     Can withstand high temperatures (176°F/80°C) and high pressure (1,450 psi) cleaning
  •     Laser printing replaces labels, so key information stays intact even after cleaning
  •     Normally open and normally closed outputs in every sensor
  •     Supply voltage 10-30 VDC
  •     Connection options include 2m PVC cable, M12 quick-disconnect plug or a M12 pig-tail
The new PH18 Series is a sister product to our very popular and successful PA18 Series. Carlo Gavazzi now offers you more choices than ever before in compact photoelectric sensors – more sensor choices, more industries, more applications and more features! And all at prices that are amongst the most competitive in our industry.

In short, the PH18 and PA18 give you more …for less! And with cULus and CE approvals and ECOLAB certification, you can be confident that these sensors are high quality, safe and durable.

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. 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…
