Bivar Announces IP67 Rated Flexible Light Pipe and Panel Mount Indicators

Bivar, a leading specialty provider of LED indication products has announced five new IP67 rated LED products to handle extreme weather and other tough outdoor conditions. These products extend Bivar’s existing line of flexible light pipes and panel mount assemblies and are well suited for a range of applications including agricultural, commercial, industrial, medical, marine, military, and transportation.

Defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), an IP rating is used to specify the environmental protection of enclosures around electronic equipment. It classifies the degree of protection against the intrusion of solid objects, dust, accidental contact and water. Bivar’s newest flexible light pipes and panel mount assemblies feature an IP67 rating to function in heat, cold and other harsh conditions and are totally protected against dust and water immersion up to 1m at 30 minutes.

“Bivar is uniquely positioned to bring to the industry the most comprehensive line of IP67 rated products, which include a range of flexible light pipe and panel mount indicator options,” said Tom Silber, Bivar president and CEO. “Our IP67 product lines make LED indication possible for products in the defense/military, industrial and transportation markets. Extreme conditions and harsh environments withstanding, LEDs can facilitate machine to human communication in any application.”

The two new flexible light pipe IP67 products are constructed with either polycarbonate or metal housing and feature a watertight seal to protect the front panel from water, dust and moisture.

Features include:
  •     Designed for use with Bivar SM series surface mount LEDs, vertical and horizontal mounted 3mm through hole LEDs, and Orca R series LEDs.
  •     Lenses are molded from optical grade plastic, which allows for maximum light transmission.
  •     The diffused and Fresnel lens options provide uniform illumination and wide angle viewing capability.
  •     Housing is constructed of high-quality aluminum/black anodized finish and provides positive locking for constant vibration, ideal for a robust environment.
The three new IP67 rated panel mount indicators include a polycarbonate option, a standard metal option and an EMC/UL rated metal option. Each offer high optical performance, outstanding reliability and vandal resistance. The EMC/UL option provides noise shielding for sensitive equipment with better EMC performance, in addition to UL certification for systems requiring extra safety assurance.

Features include:
  •     A high-intensity LED that is easily visible in bright sunlight. LEDs are direct drive upon specified forward voltage.
  •     Variety of lens options including clear raised, color raised, color diffused and smoked. The diffused lens provides uniform illumination and wide angle viewing capability.
  •     A reverse diode protected with a range of colors and input voltages.
  •     Sunlight readable, conductive panel seal, bi-polar.
  •     Leaded and wired contacts with optional connectors.
  •     Housing is constructed of ESD protected material in high-quality brass/bright nickel finish, aluminum/black anodized finish, or polycarbonate with UV coating.
  •     Suitable for high vibration applications and defense equipment.

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…
