The new FTS 3100s-A

The Ha-VIS FTS 3100s-A is the first switch in the product series to offer the innovative Fast Track Switching technology. It is the solution that satisfies the majority of performance and determinism requirements in Ethernet networks in the automation.

The switch detects real-time automation frames and uses the cut-through method to accelerate their transmission. These automation frames are always forwarded before other types – in other words, they always have the right-of-way over non-real-time frames.

The FTS 3100s-A with 10 Fast Ethernet ports is an unmanaged switch that can be configured with the FTS Manager via a USB interface. It combines the simple handling of a plug-and-play device with individual setting options tuned to the particularly automation application.

Port-related settings, such as data rate, duplex mode, port mirroring, etc., are easy to set up.

The FTS Manager allows users to select the automation protocols that are to be detected and put on the fast track.

PROFINET, Ethernet/IP and ModbusTCP are the protocols that are currently available, and they can be preconfigured and then activated with just a click.

There are also versatile options that allow other profiles to be detected and transported in FTS mode. This enables users to profit from FTS, even for their specific protocols - the switch can simply be optimized to almost any application, although the factory setting can handle the requirements in most cases. Users also have a safe and reliable tool for saving and loading the settings when the optional pluggable memory card is added.

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

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.
