THAT Corporation Partners with Earthworks Audio for its dbx-tv Total Cal Microphones

THAT Corporation, a leading provider of high-quality audio technologies, today announced that it has partnered with  Earthworks® Audio to create a customized dbx-tv omnidirectional measurement microphone for its new dbx-tv® Total Cal audio calibration tool - a PC-based acoustic measurement and configuration system that simplifies and shortens the time required to configure a TV’s audio system.

Each Total Cal system utilizes a minimum of three state-of-the-art dbx-tv / Earthworks microphones to capture the sonic fingerprint of the TV audio system being measured through the built-in speakers. By comparing these sonic profiles to a series of preconfigured test tones, Total Cal is able to assess the performance of the TV’s existing hardware and automatically adjust its audio system to meet the setmaker's sonic objectives. Using a proprietary genetic tuning algorithm and the myriad parameters of dbx-tv’s Total Sonics audio software suite, Total Cal achieves remarkable results that can be auditioned in just minutes without the need for a trained audio engineer.

“In order for our Total Cal audio measurement and calibration solution to deliver the best possible results, we knew we would need to specify incredibly sensitive transducers throughout the system,” said Tim Brault, dbx-tv’s Product Manager for Audio Enhancement Products. “Earthworks microphones are known throughout the audio industry for their superior flat and wide frequency response, superb handling of transients, and accurate polar characteristics. “Since our respective companies share a common dbx heritage, and Earthworks has a stellar reputation for manufacturing the highest quality microphones, it was only natural to ask our friends at Earthworks to help us create something special for  Total Cal.

“Over the years, Earthworks has teamed up with dbx-tv on a number of successful audio measurement projects,” said Bill Norton, COO of Earthworks Audio. “Our new dbx-tv microphones are incredibly accurate in terms of time domain and flat frequency response with virtually no handling noise. As a result, they are ideally suited for the exacting, free-field acoustical measurement requirements of dbx-tv’s Total Cal 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 E

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 p

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.
