OMRON Releases New CP1L Programmable Controllers with Built-in Ethernet

OMRON Corporation today announced the release in March of a new group of CP1L CPU units all featuring Ethernet connectivity, the latest additions to its CP series of programmable controllers.

CP1L-EL/EM-type programable controllers
  •         CP1L-EM-[]D[]-D      6 models
  •         CP1L-EL-20D[]-D      3 models
Analog option units for CP1L EM/EL-type programable controllers
  •         CP1W-[][][]2[][]      3 models
Ethernet technology is increasingly being utilized in the factory automation field to facilitate communications between computers and PLCs (programmable controllers). This has resulted in a growing need for Ethernet capability even in programable controllers with 10 to 200 I/O points used in small-scale control applications. The demand for Ethernet as an interface for programable controllers is also rapidly increasing in other fields such as in sewerage monitoring systems and building automation, in which scattered programable controllers in remote locations are monitored by computers through wireless and Ethernet networks.

The CP1L-EL/EM-type CPU units released today are programable controllers with built-in Ethernet ports enabling low-cost Ethernet connection and designed to meet a wide variety of Ethernet connectivity needs in a wide range of fields.

The ability to send and receive messages means it is possible for a host computer to monitor the status of controllers and also receive feedback from the controllers about any onsite abnormalities they detect. The controllers also feature socket communications capability meaning it is possible to connect them with a wide variety of Ethernet-enabled control equipment.

The added function block memory (10K steps) improves reusability of user program assets and supports design standardization. The function blocks aid efficient creation of reusable programs used in various devices such as ladder programs used for Ethernet communications.

All the CP1L-EL/EM-type CPU units incorporate two analog inputs meaning that stand-alone CPU units can handle various applications such as monitoring for fluid level detection. For applications that require more than two analog inputs, up to six analog inputs and four analog outputs can be controlled by mounting analog option units without the need for an expansion unit.

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…
