Ultra-compact 2520-size TCXO, with a wide temperature range, developed for vehicular GPS applications

Nihon Dempa Kogyo Co., Ltd. (Hiroshi Takeuchi, President) has developed the TCXO (temperature-compensated crystal oscillator) with a wide temperature range in ultra-compact size of 2520 (2.5×2.0×0.8mm Typ.) for GPS applications in vehicles or other outdoor-type apparatuses.

In recent years, the role of the GPS in automobiles has been getting more and more significant. It has widely spread in the range from the system used by drivers for capturing the position of the vehicle, such as the Car Navigation System, up to the system informing the position of the vehicle to external party, such as the e-call (*1), or the system of tracing the vehicle from outside, such as SVT (*2).

In order to be applicable to such various GPS applications in vehicles, a Frequency Temperature Characteristic of ±3.0ppm has been realized (commonly around ±10ppm in the past). Furthermore, in the product with the ±0.5ppm of Frequency Temperature Characteristic, the Operating Temperature Range has been expanded to -40 to +85deg.C from -30 to +85deg.C, which previous model used.

With the higher accuracy applied for the GPS and expanded Operating Temperature Range, the available locations for installing GPS equipment has become wider. The locations have been limited in the past, such as the dashboard of vehicle, etc, but now can be installed in locations with severe temperature conditions.

Even with it's compact 2520-size, it is applicable to a wide range of usage, mainly used for in-vehicle, such as Telematics, etc.

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.
