Osram Opto Semiconductors Launches the Brightest Blue LED for Emergency Vehicle Lighting

With the Oslon Signal, Osram Opto Semiconductors provides a new LED that currently boasts the world’s brightest blue light. Made using a special thin-film chip technology, the Oslon Signal can be operated even at a high current while providing a sustained, powerful, bright blue light. This powerful blue light that lasts even throughout long journeys is crucial for the signal lights of the police and emergency services.

Osram Opto Semiconductors’ Oslon Signal produces a blue color at an unprecedented brightness level,   with a luminous flux of 52 lumens (lm) at 350 milliamperes (mA). Its wavelength of 472 nm and all color bins (groups) comply perfectly with the EU and US standards for signaling, in particular for Emergency Vehicle Lighting. The package platform of the Oslon family, consisting of a ceramic substrate with built-in connecting contacts and a silicone lens, remains stable and resistant to aging caused by the short-wave blue light.

The Oslon Signal includes chips of the high-performance UX:3 technology, which are capable of operating at very high performance levels even at extremely high currents. This is an important aspect, as blue signal light is often pulsed and therefore requires from high currents even greater luminous power. Despite its power, the LED measures only 3 x 3 mm. It is equipped with an insulated heat sink, so it can be mounted easily and conveniently, especially in combination with a conventional FR4 board.

The lens has a radiation angle of 80° and provides a highly symmetrical light output; the Oslon Signal can therefore also be easily mounted in existing emergency vehicle lighting applications and help provide significantly brighter signal lighting.

“Our developers have succeeded in doubling the brightness increase with blue LEDs within a very short time and therefore supplying the world’s brightest product in this sector. That’s why we support not only our customers in this regard but also contribute to greater road safety, as emergency vehicles can be seen sooner and better”, says Jennifer Rieder, marketing manager at Osram Opto Semiconductors.

In addition to blue LEDs, the entire Oslon family of the Regensburg-based company includes a variety of other colors such as red, yellow, green and white, which are all created using the latest thin-film chip technologies, which make them particularly effective.

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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.

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…
