Maxim Integrated’s High-Voltage Battery Sensor Extends Battery Life and Supports Highest Automotive Safety Rating

Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) introduces the MAX17823, a fourth-generation high-voltage battery sensor for mission-critical automotive and industrial lithium-ion battery and fuel cell applications. Offering a full suite of proprietary integrated ISO-26262 diagnostic features, the MAX17823 maximizes electric and hybrid electric vehicle driving range while ensuring battery and fuel cell safety and reliability.

A proprietary, differential UART communications link is automotive EMC-hardened, enabling uninterrupted cell monitoring during battery pack service disconnect and eliminating costly digital isolators. An innovative shutdown feature safely enters all daisy-chain devices into submicro-ampere sleep mode when a host microcontroller loses 12V power. ASIL-D (Automotive Safety Integrity Level “D”, per ISO-26262) compliance is achieved and maintained with unmatched, accurate 96-cell, 100 measurements-per-second performance. The 96-cell hot-plug immunity ensures highest reliability during BMS (battery management system) manufacturing.

Key Advantages
  •     ASIL-D compliance
  •     Uncompromising accuracy: better than 2mV cell voltage measurement
  •     Ensures system safety: comprehensive smart diagnostics eliminate premature system shutdown
  •     Reliable EMC compliance: robust daisy-chain UART interface supports cable lengths of up to 3m and passes rigorous industry EMC-compliance testing
  •     Highest reliability during manufacture: 96-cell hot-plug and cell-reversal immunity allows for safe pack assembly
  •     Industry’s fastest cell measurement and diagnostic speed: 100 times per second
Industry Commentary
  •     “The MAX17823 is the culmination of multiyear R&D partnerships with our key automotive OEM and Tier-1 customers,” said Naveed Majid, Managing Director at Maxim Integrated. “The MAX17823’s industry-leading performance and benefits have been proven through rigorous EV and HEV program qualification testing by major automakers.” added Majid.
Availability and Pricing
  •     Available in a 64-pin LQFP package (10mm × 10mm).
  •     Specified for the -40°C to +105°C temperature range.
  •     Contact factory for pricing details.

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…

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…


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.
