ILLUMRA Announces Distribution Agreement with Probare

ILLUMRA, the leader in wireless battery-free controls, announced it has signed an exclusive agreement to sell the Probare P30 link analyzer in the United States and Canada. The new product allows specifiers and installers to plan, verify and maintain EnOcean based wireless networks. The hand-held analyzer is available in 315MHz and 868MHz versions.

“We are happy to strengthen our relationship with ILLUMRA by offering the P30 through their professional organization,” said Thomas Rieder, managing director at Probare. “Their knowledge and experience with EnOcean products and technology compliment the features of the P30. The powerful tool allows planners and installers alike to save time and money while providing confidence about the reliability and quality of their installations.”

“With a large backlit LCD display that is easy to read even under difficult lighting conditions,” said Jan Finlinson, director at ILLUMRA. “The P30 is a great tool for creating EnOcean based control networks.”

The analyzer has four analyzer modes that test links, repeaters, and networks and also includes the ability to remotely control EnOcean based products. Power is supplied from two “AA” batteries. A wide-range AC power supply, including a USB plug, comes with the P30, which allows long-term logging of the radio channel, including: timing, signal strength, and packet data.

The P30 can communicate with PC's via USB. WinEtel and Dolphin View tools from EnOcean are supported for development engineers and field application experts. USB drivers are available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS-X.

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 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.
