Silex Technology America Introduces Third Generation SDIO Card for Low-Power Wi-FI Connectivity

Silex Technology, a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions, today launched the SX-SDCAN SDIO card based on Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 WLAN technology. Unlike other radio modules, the SX-SDCAN is mechanically designed in an SD card form factor providing an upgrade path for existing Silex customers to take advantage of 802.11n Wi-Fi technology while offering new customers a vendor-independent form factor.

The SX-SDCAN supports 802.11a/b/g/n to leverage the 5GHz band for applications requiring relatively interference-free bandwidth. Added features including antenna diversity and Silex-provided software (driver and security supplicant) offer users the highest reliability and security. The Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 WLAN chipset has been designed to optimize power consumption with the smallest form factor making the SX-SDCAN ideal for low-power battery operated mobile devices such as medical devices, printers and other portable devices.

The SX-SDCAN SDIO card offers the highest product quality through design and production validation. RF-related design efforts and costs are reduced for SX-SDCAN customers because it has been tested to perform to IEEE standards. In addition, Silex Technology tests each module individually ensuring each of its products performs to the published specification. Lastly, the SX-SDCAN has FCC, CE and Telec modular certifications eliminating the need for re-testing intentional radio radiation for regulatory approval.

The SX-SDCAN samples are now available for evaluation. Silex Technology also provides an evaluation kit which includes a sample radio driver and tools to test basic wireless functionality, throughput and RF characteristics.

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…

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…
