New Thai Plant Opening Ceremony - Capacitor Mass Production Resumes

NEC TOKIN Corporation has acquired a new plant within the Wellgrow Industrial Estate to make up for its plant in the Navanakorn Industrial Estate, which was damaged by last year's flooding in Thailand, and has been preparing to resume production. NEC TOKIN has recently completed factory building and production equipment preparations, and has held an opening ceremony for its new plant on May 31. From June, NEC TOKIN will resume its mass production of conductive polymer tantalum capacitors (Neo Capacitors) in Thailand, followed by resuming mass production of electric double layer capacitors (Super Capacitors).

In October of last year, NEC TOKIN Electronics (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (located in Navanakorn Industrial Estate, Pathumthani, Thailand), NEC TOKIN's capacitor business mass production plant, was flooded during the large-scale Thai floods, and took severe damage. In order to rapidly restore its capacitor business, NEC TOKIN acquired a new plant in the Wellgrow Industrial Estate (located in Bang Pakong, Chachoengsao), and has prepared to resume production activities.

Since the floods, Thailand has been busily engaged in recovery efforts, and while difficulties were encountered with equipment delivery dates and the securing of site personnel, NEC TOKIN succeeded in holding the opening ceremony in May, roughly as scheduled.

The opening ceremony was attended by NEC TOKIN executives, as well as individuals who have been of assistance with facilities and construction work, celebrating the start of operation by the new plant.

Production will be gradually ramped up at the new Wellgrow Industrial Estate plant, focusing on conductive polymer tantalum capacitor production. From late 2012 onwards, plant production will be increased to the manufacturing of 100 million conductive polymer tantalum capacitors and 3 million electric double layer capacitors per month. NEC TOKIN will continue to improve the plant's production capacity thereafter.

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…
