Maxwell Technologies' Swiss Subsidiary Launches New Line of Medium Voltage Capacitors and Voltage Dividers

Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXWL), a leading producer of energy storage and power delivery products, announced today that its Swiss subsidiary has launched a new line of CONDIS® capacitors and voltage dividers for medium voltage applications.

Maxwell Technologies SA is a leading global supplier of capacitors for applications in electric utility infrastructure and other applications involving transmission, distribution and measurement of electrical energy.  Its CONDIS® products are recognized for their world class quality and reliability, electrical & mechanical strength, long lifetime and their ability to be tailored to individual customer requirements.

The new medium voltage (MV) capacitors and voltage divider products are based on Maxwell's environmentally friendly CDAS technology, featuring molded resin construction and gas impregnation, which eliminates the potential for oil leakage. Maxwell is one of the world's only suppliers of MV components to fully automate its winding and assembly processes, ensuring absolute product uniformity.  These process and material advances result in superior electrical performance, reliability and longevity. Key user benefits include:
  •     Minimal variation of electrical performance throughout the product lifetime
  •     High temperature stability
  •     Compact size and lower weight
  •     Reduced capacitor costs
CONDIS® MV products address a large application spectrum, including:
  •     Partial discharge measurement
  •     Energy Management, e.g. railway on-board voltage measurement
  •     Protection of power generator breaker
  •     HVDC, e.g. converter voltage distribution
  •     Distribution automation and smart metering
  •     Power Line Carrier (PLC)

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…
