Bourns Introduces Breakthrough Line of Transient Current Suppressors that Deliver Ultra-Fast, Cost-Effective and Reliable Circuit Protection

Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today introduced a breakthrough line of transient current suppressor (TCS™) devices that provide ultra-fast and highly reliable circuit protection to very high data rate signal lines such as those used in xDSL and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). Bourns used its extensive circuit protection expertise to innovatively design solutions that combine advanced surge protection with excellent system performance and cost-effectiveness. Designated the Bourns® TCS™ DL-Series, these ultra-fast reacting devices negligibly affect the signal performance of high-speed communication ports unlike typical high capacitance protectors.

Bourns® TCS™ devices are high-speed, bidirectional, low resistance, automatically resettable, compact current limiting devices that protect circuits from overcurrent surges. Protecting within nanoseconds, the devices are capable of significantly reducing latency common in most circuit protection designs, and limit the let-throughenergy that could potentially damage sensitive electronic circuits. A solution consisting of a TCS™ device and an overvoltage protector such as a clamping diode offers OEMs a superior overvoltage and overcurrent protection solution.

"Bourns designed its innovative and ultra high-speed TCS™ devices to provide designers a high performance and cost-effective circuit protection alternative for sensitive xDSL and Gigabit Ethernet port line drivers," said Ian Doyle, product line manager for semiconductor products at Bourns, Inc. "DSL and Ethernet interfaces are increasingly exposed to surge threats and Bourns® TCS™ solutions reliably protect low voltage driver and receiver components from damage from lightning surges without compromising performance. The small footprint of these new devices simplifies retrofitting or upgrading of existing equipment at minimum redesign costs. In most cases, designers can simply add a TCS™ device to an existing TVS protection design."

The Bourns® TCS™ DL-Series provides an integrated solution that minimizes board size, design and manufacturing costs for faster time-to-market. The new devices also help to reduce costly field failures and help end-users decrease expensive maintenance, repair and system downtime costs.

The Bourns® TCS™ DL-Series (dual devices) are available now. As a pricing reference, a 2.3 Ohm dual TCSTM (TCS-DL004-250-WH) is priced at $0.42 each in 1000 piece quantities.

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. 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…
