LSR Announces TiWi5 and TiWi-BLE

LS Research (LSR) today announced the TiWi5™ and TiWi-BLE™, 802.11/Bluetooth/BLE, FCC/IC-certified and ETSI-tested modules aimed at enabling robust wireless connectivity for embedded systems. The TiWi5 is based on the WL1273 solution from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) and supports 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth® 2.1+EDR, Bluetooth low energy 4.0, and ANT+™. The TiWi-BLE is based on TI’s WL1271 solution and supports 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Bluetooth low energy 4.0, and ANT+. For maximum design reuse, the TiWi-BLE is pin for pin compatible with LSR’s TiWi5 module, and both the TiWi-BLE and TiWi5 are pin for pin compatible with LSR’s 2.4 GHz TiWi-R2™ module. The certified modules provide customer multiple antenna options and offer a -40 to +85 O C industrial temperature range. Additionally, quickly enable manufactures wanting to add the TiWi5 or TiWi-BLE to their product lines, LSR is providing antenna design support, driver integration with various processor platforms, and system level design to customers.

LSR’s new TiWi5 and TiWi-BLE modules provide customers the ability to quickly and cost effectively implement dual-band, multi-standard wireless connectivity on a significant range of microprocessor (MPU)-based platforms. The TiWi5 is aimed at industrial automation, mobile data terminals, wireless video, and other applications, while the TiWi-BLE supports consumer wellness, sports and fitness, security and proximity, smart energy, home automation and entertainment and more. The modules’ technology are designed and built to provide best-in-class WLAN and Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy co-existence for seamless transition.

“TI’s strategy is to reduce engineering barriers and accelerate time-to-market for customers adopting our wireless products. A major part of that is simplifying the RF design integration and certification challenges inherent to working with radio technologies,” said Matt Kurtz, channel marketing manager, wireless connectivity solutions, TI. “We’re excited to work with LS Research as they leverage our WL1273 and WL1271 on the first broadly-available dual-band 2.4/5 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy module solutions on the market.”

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…
