Henkel at SolarPACES in Spain

For the first time, Henkel will be present with its own stand at the international congress SolarPACES where it will be presenting innovative solutions for the concentrated solar power (CSP) industry. The high-performance adhesives and sealants from Henkel make a substantial contribution to raising quality and lowering costs in the manufacture of products for the solar industry. The congress is taking place in Granada, Spain, from Tuesday the 20th to Friday the 23rd of September 2011.

During the production of components for CSP plants, mirrors are bonded to different kinds of supporting structures. The resulting bonds have to satisfy various and typically high demands. Henkel’s high-performance adhesives and sealants improve product quality while also enabling highly automated production processes, thereby reducing manufacturing costs. A selection of the many different and innovative solutions will be presented at the SolarPACES congress.

Excellent bonding of mirrors to supporting structures

The elastic adhesives Terostat MS and Loctite Silicone not only provide high-quality bonds but are also ideal for use on substrates with different thermal expansion rates as they compensate such relative movements. They are extremely resistant to weathering and withstand UV radiation. Moreover, they bond excellently to glass, metal and plastics – without the need for primers.

Bonding of parts with the same thermal expansion coefficient

Henkel also offers the energy-elastic adhesive Macroplast UK as a solution for bonding parts with similar thermal expansion coefficients. This adhesive is the ideal solution for secure fixing of the center of gravity of a mirror. Just like the products Terostat MS and Loctite Silicone, this adhesive from Henkel makes it possible to achieve a high degree of automation in production and so reduce manufacturing costs.

Interested customers will have an opportunity at the SolarPACES event to talk with Henkel experts and learn more about the properties and application possibilities of these products.

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.
