TAIYO YUDEN Announces Commercial Production of Metal Power Inductor “MCOIL™”, Optimal for Smartphones

TAIYO YUDEN CO., LTD. has succeeded in developing the metal power inductor “MCOILTM”, the first of a series of coil components that use metallic magnetic materials optimal for use in choke coils for power supply circuits in compact mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs that are becoming smaller, thinner, and more feature-rich. TAIYO YUDEN today announced commercial production of the 2520 size metal core wire-wound chip power inductor “MAMK2520” (2.5x2.0x1.2mm) and the 2mm square size metal core SMD power inductor “MDMK2020” (2.0x2.0x1.2mm, height is maximum value for both).

A combination of newly developed metallic magnetic materials with TAIYO YUDEN’s advanced process technology achieves for both products the best-in-class DC bias characteristics in the industry as well as size reduction. MAMK 2520T2R2M (inductance value 2.2µH, saturation current 2300mA) has 2.3 times higher saturation current than TAIYO YUDEN’s existing BRL2518T2R2M (inductance value 2.2µH, saturation current 1000mA). MDMK2020T2R2M (inductance value 2.2µH, saturation current 2000mA) has 1.5 times higher saturation current than TAIYO YUDEN’s existing NRS2012T2R2M (inductance value 2.2µH, saturation current 1350mA).

The commercial production will commence in May 2012 at the Company’s Nakanojo Plant in Gunma Prefecture, Japan at a production volume of 40 million and 20 million units per month for MAMK2520 and MDMK2020, respectively. The sample price is $1.00 each.

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…
