GE Energy Offers Digital Power Insight™ for Design Engineers

GE Energy (NYSE: GE) has released its new Digital Power Insight™ kit, (DPI Kit) designed to help power electronics design engineers quickly and easily get started on reaping the many benefits of implementing digital power components into existing and future product designs.  Available upon request from  Power Electronics’ regional sales managers and/or through its licensed distributors, the Digital Power Insight kit is a portable, user-friendly evaluation tool that allows power design engineers of all knowledge levels to explore, evaluate and experiment with digital power modules such as the popular DLynx™ Point-of-Load- (POL) and the Barracuda™ DC-DC bus converter series.

“The GE Energy Digital Power Insight kit gives power design engineers the unique ability to turn any PC or laptop into a virtual evaluation lab,” said Jeff Schnitzer, president of GE Energy’s Power Electronics business. “Digital power provides access to critical load information, including current and voltage, enabling the system to monitor power consumption at the highest possible resolution. With this kit, design engineers with limited digital power experience can educate themselves at their own pace and explore first-hand how a digital power module can impact the energy efficiency of the finished electronic product.”

Unlike other digital power evaluation kits, the GE Energy Digital Power Insight kit is designed for a full ’Plug and Play‘ experience, requiring only one data field to be populated by the engineer. The kit is ideal for power design engineers in the telecom, datacom, industrial and medical device industries, and allows for real-time, ‘on the fly’ exploration. In addition to the evaluation board, USB adapter and cables, the kit also comes with a simple, step-by-step instruction manual.

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…
