UNIPOWER LLC, announces the acquisition of Universal Voltronics Corporation (UVC), a company with over 40 years of experience in high-voltage power applications. Currently, the company manufactures high-voltage power products ranging in power from 200 watts to 200 kilowatts, including supplies engineered for X-Rays, lasers, e-beam electrostatic, instrumentation and general- purpose markets. This acquisition is a strategic addition to the company's high-power division, strengthening its position in key photonic and electron beam applications.

The addition of UVC improves the market position of UNIPOWER by expanding its high-voltage product offering with a series of standard products while also significantly expanding the company's high-voltage technical development capabilities going forward.

Plans are in place to integrate the Sales, Engineering and Manufacturing functions of UVC and its earlier acquisition, Technipower. Placing these businesses under one roof creates critical mass as well as realizing significant synergies. It is expected that full integration of the businesses will be concluded within the following few months. Technipower and UVC are located in close proximity in Connecticut, further facilitating the integration. The consolidation is expected to be seamless to customers and vendors alike.

Tom Kell, CEO of UNIPOWER commented, "Adding the products and technical abilities of UVC to the current capabilities of our Technipower business makes tremendous sense. This addition and combination results in the creation of a "real force" in the High-Voltage power arena."

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…
