Han® X-TEC Circular Connector

With the new series of connectors, Han® X-TEC, HARTING supplies the customized solution for all drives, such as those used in machine tool or in automation. These environments demand small and compact interfaces. Servomotors in particular are often fitted with compact M 23 circular connectors. HARTING supplies the Han® X-TEC 23 in this size and Han® X-TEC 32 in the M 32 size. The particular features of both sizes are a new type of rapid locking of cable connectors and receptacles. Simply by rotating the black locking ring through 70°, the whole connector is locked, easily and securely, thereby providing protection against dust and water (IP 67).

In order to cover all of the many and varied requirements associated with drives, HARTING supplies different power and signal connectors for the two sizes Han® X-TEC 23 and 32. A broad portfolio of housing designs and sizes provides solutions for almost any application. For example, as well as robust metal connectors, light plastic connectors are also available. To make selection easier, connectors are supplied as a set comprising insert, housing and cable glands for the cable connectors.

As well as connectors, complete system cables will also be available in future, both in standard versions and customized versions for particular applications. This means that with Han® X-TEC, HARTING provides a complete, one-source solution for drive installation and many other components in the field of machine tool and automation.

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…
