Development of the "HW Series" of Low Impedance, Long Life Aluminum Capacitors

Nichicon Corporation has developed the HW series of radial leaded type, low impedance, long life aluminum capacitors perfectly suited to withstand high ripple current and long life demands of power sources. The line-up will be on show at the CEATEC JAPAN 2012 exhibition to be held at Makuhari Messe from 2–6 October (Tues-Sat).

As electronic appliances and AC adaptors are reduced in size, the manufacturers of these devices are making their warranties longer with each passing year. This trend is accelerating and energy efficiency is another keyword. Amid this market context, demand is on the rise for low impedance, long life aluminum capacitors for use as secondary power circuits.

To meet these market needs, Nichicon has developed the HW series line-up of radial lead type low impedance, long life aluminum capacitors.

Based on technology developed by Nichicon, this product applies a new electrolyte solution and assembles optimal components to achieve a long life guarantee of 10,000 hours, approximately 1.7 times longer than the current low impedance HV series product (guaranteeing 6,000 hours).

In addition, the HW series has a wider rated voltage range than the HV series, which is designed to suit diverse circuit voltages, and it will contribute to the better endurance of all kinds of power sources, especially batteries for electric appliances and AC adaptors.

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

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


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.
