NVE Introduces Wide-Body Version of Low-Power Isolated CAN Transceiver

As promised, NVE Corporation today introduced a wide-body version of its new low-power isolated CAN transceiver family.

IsoLoop® IL41050TAE isolated Controller Area Network (CAN) transceiver
The new IL41050TAE is a wide-body version of the IL41050TA-3E, which was introduced in May 2012. The wide-body version has a full eight millimeter creepage distance for demanding high-voltage applications.

The newer IL41050TA transceivers (with the “A” suffix) are recommended over the older IL41050T parts because they are lower power, higher CDM ESD, comparable speed, and slightly lower price.

Both IL41050TA package versions feature 180 nanoseconds typical loop delay, 12 milliamps quiescent supply current (recessive), and a Charged Device Model (CDM) ESD rating of plus or minus 500 volts.

Revolutionary IL41050 transceivers integrate transceiver and isolation functions in a single device with improved performance and reduced chip count compared to discrete transceivers and traditional optocouplers. The transceivers fully comply with the ISO 11898 CAN standard and de facto industry standards, and provide an isolated interface between five-volt CAN busses and three-volt microcontrollers.

Wide-body packaged versions provide a full eight millimeters creepage distance. Narrow-body versions, designated with the -3E suffix, are the world’s smallest isolated CAN transceivers.

Advanced features allow unmatched versatility and reliable bus operation. Unpowered nodes do not disturb the bus, and a unique nonvolatile programmable power-up feature prevents unstable nodes. The devices also have a hardware-selectable silent mode that disables the transmitter.

Designed for harsh CAN and DeviceNet environments, IL41050 transceivers are rugged where it counts with a -55 to +125 degree Celsius operating range, transmit data dominant time-out, thermal shutdown protection, short-circuit protection, 2.5 kilovolt isolation, typical transient immunity of 30 kilovolts per microsecond, bus pin transient protection, and a Human Body Model electrostatic discharge (ESD) rating of four kilovolts. Unique edge-triggered inputs maximize noise immunity. The parts are UL 1577 and IEC 61010-2001 approved. Unlike optocouplers or other isolation technologies, IsoLoop isolators have indefinite life at high voltage.

The newest part, the wide-body version IL41050TAE, is in stock for immediate delivery.

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.
