GE Energy Delivers High Efficiency Open Frame Power Supply

GE Energy (NYSE: GE) today announced the 200 Watt CLP0212 open frame power supply. In a 2 x 4 inch footprint smaller than an iPhone®, the 12Vdc single-output supply delivers 80 PLUS Gold energy efficiency. Half the size of other power supplies in this segment, the CLP series is specifically designed to handle power challenges associated with tight space and low airflow. The new power supply offers leading 18W/in3 power density in a 1U high, fan-less form factor to address a broad range of applications in new products from communications, computing and data storage original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

“We’re offering OEMs a small, cost-effective, energy-efficient power supply that leads the industry in power density while helping to lower utility bills and cooling requirements,” said Jeff Schnitzer, president of GE Energy’s Power Electronics business. “We’re happy to see quick adoption in next-generation broadband router/modem, network attached storage, wireless access point and set-top box devices that enable anywhere, anytime access to digital content.”

As part of the GE Energy Total Efficiency™ architecture, the new CLP series delivers greater than 90 percent typical power efficiency and full load output at 50˚C (122˚F) with limited current de-rating at higher temperatures. The CLP series utilizes unique designs for combined feedback of zero voltage switching through line load control and quasi-resonant power factor correction (PFC) circuits while also optimizing transformer geometry and switching frequency. Input range is 90-265Vac with 12ms hold up time, 100 kHz switching frequency, narrow 15 kHz frequency band and active PFC. Protection features include over-current, over-voltage and over-temperature. Fault tolerance capabilities deliver N+1 redundancy for high-availability requirements. No load power consumption is less than 0.5 watts. Certifications include FCC Class A, CE, CSA, TUV and UL.

80 PLUS is a certification and incentive program, funded by electric utilities and energy efficiency organizations, to integrate more energy-efficient power supplies into desktop computers and servers. When using a product certified by the 80 PLUS organization, the customer is assured that the power supply is tested to the highest levels of power efficiency available in the market to help reduce carbon footprints, conserve energy resources, and obtain a lower total cost of ownership.

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…
