Emerson Network Power Configurable AC-DC Power Supplies Meet Third Edition IEC 60601 Medical Safety Standard

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today announced that all versions of its configurable ac-dc power supplies featuring medical safety approvals are now compliant with the third edition of the ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1:2005 / IEC 60601-1 medical safety standard. This allows designers of equipment for medical applications to continue to specify and build-in these highly flexible power supplies, secure in the knowledge that they are taking an uncompromised, future-proof route.

All Emerson Network Power configurable ac-dc power supplies that complied with the second edition of the standard now also fully comply with the requirements of the third edition, and include at least two means of patient protection (MOPP). The improvements cover factors such as increased creepage distances and clearance on mains connectors, better insulation of isolation transformer windings and reduced capacitance between input and outputs.

Emerson Network Power produces a diverse range of medically-approved configurable ac-dc power supplies, with power outputs as high as 4,920 watts. The range includes the popular iVS™, µMP and iMP™ series, all of which provide electronic equipment designers with a highly flexible means of accommodating multiple dc supply needs. Designed specifically to provide a cost-effective alternative to custom power supplies, they offer industry-leading efficiency, power density and reliability, combined with exceptional functionality. Power supplies that are pre-approved to the IEC 60601-1 safety standard provide designers of medical equipment with significant advantages; they are able to accelerate compliance testing of their own products, minimize the risk of encountering unexpected power safety issues, and reduce their time-to-market.

According to Chris Jones, director of marketing for the Embedded Power business of Emerson Network Power, “We have been active in the medically-approved power supply business for nearly 40 years. Providing products that pre-empt the introduction of new safety standards and other performance-related legislation is a cornerstone of our customer support strategy. The manufacture of power supplies that comply with the latest edition of the IEC 60601-1 medical safety standard is a case in point; it involves extensive analysis of all potential fault conditions and how to mitigate their effect, combined with comprehensive risk management procedures. Designers of medical equipment can be confident when specifying power supplies from Emerson Network Power.”

The medically-approved versions of Emerson Network Power’s iVS, µMP and iMP power supplies are suitable for a wide range of non-patient contact and non-patient critical applications. These include clinical diagnostic systems, patient monitoring systems and medical imaging equipment such as X-ray machines, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems and computed tomography (CTI) scanners.

With a power output range from 210 to 4,920 watts, Emerson Network power has one of the broadest portfolios of configurable power supplies in the world. The iVS, µMP and iMP medically-approved configurable power supplies share a number of key attributes. They are all equipped with an I2C interface and are fully programmable using the industry-standard PMBus protocol. The power supplies all have universal inputs, enabling them to be used almost anywhere in the world without adjustment, and employ active power factor correction to help maximize efficiency. They also all feature comprehensive protection against fault conditions, are equipped with CISPR 22 Class B EMI filters and meet rigorous international EMC standards.

Emerson Network Power configurable ac-dc power supplies that comply with the third edition of the IEC 60601-1 medical safety standard are available now. More information about power supply products from Emerson Network Power can be found online.

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 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.

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.
