Touch Switches Promise Enhanced Visibility and Performance

KYOCERA Display is offering a new capacitive touch switch based on technology experience gained in the smart phone market. This capacitive touch switch detects variations in position and command. This technology offers the highest standard of optical performance with ease of design. Capacitive touch solutions focus on a number of applications, including: handheld terminals, gaming, medical equipment, point-of-sale and mobile applications to enable human-machine interface.

The new touch switch solutions provide outstanding clarity and simplify the design. The new capacitive touch switch technology eliminates air gaps and reduces the number of layers. An improved visibility results from less reflectance and higher transparency of the display image through the touch panel and allows for a thinner display sensor stack up. (0.5mm—0.7mm thickness in viewing area). The new solutions not only offer high optical performance but also are more compact and light weight. The structure is very robust with lifetime of approximately 100 million touches. The surface is not damaged by exposure to fluid and is easy to clean.

In addition, the new touch switch solution from KYOCERA Display offers a transparency of min. 95 percent and a reflection of less than 15 percent. The operating temperature is -20°C - +70°C.

Products based on the capacitive touch technology are currently available for demonstration and design-in purposes in 3-inch (T-55149) and 3.5-inch (T-55343) display sizes. Additional sizes in 5.7-inch (T- 55265) and 6.5-inch (T-51750) will soon be available. Our touch switch solution is available alone or with out display product integrated to the touch screen.

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 M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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.
