Seoul Semiconductor Releases a Price-Competitive and High-Efficiency

Today, Seoul Semiconductor, one of the world’s leading LED manufactures, announced the brand-new, high-intensity Z-Power LED series titled ‘Z4.’ Seoul Semiconductor has continuously expanded its LED product line in accordance with its 2011 business plan which targets to release a new product that is suitable for different markets every month.

The new model is a 1W LED light which is the most demanding in the current LED market. It is good for general lighting such as incandescent lamp and MR16 bulb-type lighting. In particular, it is very competitive in terms of price with outstanding luminous efficiency (100lm/W) and luminous flux of 100ml. And it also provides the best brightness, efficiency and color rendering properties of 1W LED with high CRI which is greater than 85.

Z4 LED helps to prevent degradation in high temperature which is the most controversial aspect of the LED package, with exceptional reliability and high protection against heat in comparison with competitive products. Above all, a price-competitive Z4 is highly competitive product in ‘cost/lm’ which is most important for LED for lighting. Until now, LED performance was judged by ‘lm/W’, but now ‘cost/lm’ is more important for performance after releasing high intensity products over 100lm. In addition, it has adopted a silicon lens for optical safety. This product is available in two colors: warm white and cool white.

In-sup Ra, Vice president of Seoul Semiconductor, said, “We have developed the high-efficiency, low-price Z4 series with the goal of increasing our market share in the world’s most demanding 1W LED market.” He added, “We believe that we will be able to further expand the incandescent lamp and MR16 bulb-type LED lighting market and enhance price competitiveness with this new product.”

Samples of the Z4 series are available now, and mass production will begin in May.

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.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
