Video Management Controller Features a Three Axes Joystick, Keypad, Jog / Shuttle Dial and USB Connectivity

CH Products, the leading manufacturer of PTZ surveillance joysticks, launches the VM Desktop for professional video management. The VM Desktop’s advanced features include a three axes Hall effect joystick, jog/shuttle dial, 27 user defined pushbuttons and USB 1.1 interface for powerful control of video surveillance, recording and video management functions.  The VM Desktop is designed for critical security installations including airports, casinos, transit stations and stadiums.

Three Axes Hall Effect Joystick

The VM Desktop’s three axes joystick provides intuitive control for pan, tilt, and zoom camera functions.  The non-contacting Hall effect technology is durable and will provide more than 10 million operations.

27 Programmable Pushbutton Switches

CH Products’ Video Management controller features 27 programmable pushbuttons, several of which are LED illuminated for operation in poorly lit conditions.  The numeric keypad module is ideal for camera selection, presets, and touring functions.  Button labels and legends may be customized for specific applications.

Jog/Shuttle Dial

The VM Desktop features a jog/shuttle dial for total control over digital video monitoring and management.  In supported applications, the 360 degree jog knob may be used for editing frame-by-frame and the spring-loaded shuttle ring for variable forward and reverse speed control of captured sequences.

USB 1.1 Interface

Featuring USB 1.1 interface, the VM Desktop integrates seamlessly with software applications supporting USB joystick inputs via Microsoft DirectX.  No device driver or manufacture specific SDK is required, the VM Desktop is recognized as a standard HID 4 axes/29 button “game controller” joystick.  The VM Desktop’s axes and buttons are programmable and function assignment is dependant on the controlled.

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…
