FuturoLighting selects state-of-the-art Osram LED technology for its new Catherina2 LED fixtures

With its Catherina square ceiling fixture, the LED lighting solutions specialist FuturoLighting is presenting a new solution for widespread use in interior lighting – be it in architectural, retail or residential lighting applications. The energy-efficient luminaire is optionally available with motion sensor and emergency module and has a long operational lifetime. Duris E 5 LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors, a mid-power LEDs which were specially developed for applications requiring high-output, homogenous planar light – will be installed in the luminaire.

A smart sensor module detects movement and distinguishes between day and night. This functionality was developed for hotel corridors and rooms where light activation is only required when customers are present in order to decrease facility power consumption. Based on customer requirements, Catherina2  can be equipped with new emergency module based on Li-ion battery technology, this module is currently under development. Thanks to advanced Osram LED technology, Catherina2  offers high efficiency with minimal power requirements, a life expectancy of over 50,000 hours and requires no maintenance other than normal dusting/cleaning during the whole product life. “We are proud to include Osram LED technology in our products, with their high quality, reliability and excellent support,” says Valentin Kulikov, CEO at FuturoLighting.

Osram Duris E 5: The ideal LED for planar lighting

The Duris E 5 from Osram Opto Semiconductors is the perfect LED for a particularly homogenous distribution of light in panel lights. With a color temperature of 4,000 Kelvin and a color-rendering index of 85, the LEDs generate a light color which is similar to daylight – an aspect which is particularly important in office and retail lighting – the areas of application of the Catherina2. The Duris E 5 are among the most efficient LEDs on the market in their performance class (mid-power), achieving 110 lm/W (at 4,000 K and 120 mA). Since their product launch in October 2011, their output has already been increased by 25 percent. They are now also achieving very good lumen maintenance figures in accordance with the IESNA LM-80-08 standard. These results are an important factor in the Energy Star certification of LED lamps and luminaires in the USA and also are increasingly being demanded worldwide as a standardized test method for lumen maintenance. Andreas Vogler, Product Manager at Osram Opto Semiconductors said: "Duris E 5 is the ideal LED component for high-output, homogenous planar light applications such as in Caterina2. The excellent price/performance ratio of this LED is prompting more and more manufacturers to convert their product designs to LED technology from Osram Opto Semiconductors."

Catherina2 : For all areas

Catherina2 has dimensions of 300 x 300 x 55 mm, power consumption of around 25 VA and gives out around 1,600 lm in near Lambertian light distribution. Suitable applications include power-saving corridor illumination (hotels, museums, schools, hospitals, shopping centers, malls, etc.), residential illumination, retail illumination, architectural lighting, and many others.

Please refer to FuturoLighting's web site for more technical details about Catherina². Information about the Duris E 5 can be found in the product catalog.

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 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.
