Femtocell Base Station Application Now Available on the Pulse Electronics Website

Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE: PULS), a leading provider of electronic components, provides engineers with an application-based sales (ABS) tool for designing a femtocell base station.  The tool is available on the Pulse Electronics website. The application links key components and other products used in wireless home networking applications. Details regarding how to use the products within the application are easily accessed. This ensures the best fit when designing femtocell base stations.

The tool provides a block diagram for the application. When the user clicks on a specific part in the diagram, a full range of products appear with complete information for each one; from there the customer can access data sheets and perform an online stock check, simplifying the selection process.  For example, if the user clicks on “LAN components” a range of surface mount and through-hole transformer magnetic options are displayed, including Ethernet magnetic transformers and RJ45 with integrated magnetics, while if “WiFi/cellular” is selected, a variety of antenna solutions appear.

A femtocell is a small cellular base station designed for use in homes or small business environments where cellular access is often limited.  Telecommunication carriers are deploying increasing numbers of femtocell base stations to resolve network coverage issues.

“Pulse Electronics designs and manufactures almost all the key components needed for a femtocell base station,” explained Mark Jackson, Pulse Electronics worldwide director of field application engineers.  “Our engineers understand these products and how they work together to get the best results.  Using the Pulse Electronics application tool for constructing a femtocell base station practically eliminates dropped calls and provides access to a local high speed WiFi hotspot inside your home without need to use expensive cellular call time minutes.”

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.
