Molex Showcases Sealed USB Interconnect Solutions For Boat Builders At IBEX 2012

Molex Incorporated plans to highlight its portfolio of sealed Universal Serial Bus (USB) connector solutions for harsh duty marine applications at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition (IBEX), October 2-4, 2012, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Molex booth 2454 will feature the industrial USB with bayonet style coupler.

“Our complete line of sealed USB interconnects and assemblies are suitable for any boat application requiring a secure, robust connection,” states Kurt Krutsch, product marketing manager, Molex. “Harsh-duty sealed USB connectors bring the convenience of one of the most popular I/O connector formats safely, securely and cost-effectively into marine environments.”

Rugged plug-and-receptacle Molex USB interconnect designs feature secure bayonet style latching, encapsulated PCB receptacles and overmolded cable assemblies, with IP67 and NEMA 6P ratings for optimal protection against dust, debris and water. Delivering high performance and ease of use, Molex industrial USB cord sets are available in varied lengths for any marine application requirement. The overmolded cord sets allow faster on-site installation than traditional field-wired connectors.

“Featuring fully-shielded cable and heavy-duty construction, Molex sealed connector assemblies provide exceptional performance in high vibration and harsh weather conditions, with superior protection against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference on land or water,” adds Krutsch.

Also highlighted at the show are the sealed Ethernet connectors featuring bayonet-style latching as well as Brad® M12 and Ultra-Lock®. The RJ-45 bayonet style ensures proper insertion depth when mating and a quick, easy connection.

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


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.

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
