WSS Series Wireless safety system

Carlo Gavazzi proudly launches a new Wireless Safety System for industrial automatic doors. The WSM/WSS eliminates the need for coiled cables between the door and the door controller, thus eliminating the possibility of damaged wires rendering a door inoperable or unsafe.

The WSM/WSS system consists of a main module (WSM) which interfaces directly with the safety input of the main door controller. The main module in turn can monitor up to 4 sub-controllers (WSS). Each sub-controller is powered by 1-4 batteries, and can monitor 2 safety edges, or 1 safety edge and 1 door-in-door sensor. The system is completed with our new PB11 low power consumption photoelectric sensors for safety edges. Power for the PB11 is supplied by the sub-controller. The system will also work with many safety edge products already on the market.

Some additional features of the new WSM/WSS include:
  •     2.4 GHz duplex communication
  •     16 selectable (via dipswitch) channels
  •     Low battery signal output relay
  •     LED indication for power, output detection, low battery, and channel synchronization
  •     25 Hz operating frequency
  •     Test input for safety check
  •     Built-in antenna
  •     10m range between main controller and sub-controller
The main controller (WSM) operates on 12-24 VAC/DC, and each sub-controller (WSS) will work with 3rd party safety edges and mechanical switches. The WSM/WSS is ideal for new construction installations as part of a complete safety system, or as an enhancement to existing installations.

The controllers and sub-controllers are fully synchronized and multiplexed, operating on 16 different channels, so no crosstalk interference can occur amongst individual sensors. The system meets all relevant global standards, and complies with all FCC and Canada IC regulations, with cUL and CE approvals for assurance of high quality and safety.

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.
