Han® Q 3/0 and Han® Q 4/0 connector

With the Han® Q 3/0 and Han® Q 4/0, HARTING is expanding its portfolio in the smallest Han® 3A size range. An area measuring 42 mm² is enough room for 3 power contacts and the protective earth contact (Han® Q 3/0) or 4 power contacts (Han® Q 4/0). This makes them both the most powerful in the compact industrial connector class.

The connector boasts the following performance data: clearance and creepage distances with the Han® 3/0 allow a 400 V rated voltage, which increases to as much as 830 V with the Han® Q 4/0. Both have roughly similar current load capacities – this is approx. 40 A given an ambient temperature of 40°C and a connection wire gauge of 4 mm². Because connectors with standard Han® C contacts can be used with a wire gauge of up to 10 mm², currents of over 80 amps are possible but in these cases the diameter of the cable entry need to take into account.

Both connectors are used in industrial environments. They are ideally suited to the needs of the semi-conductor industry, for example. The Han® Q 3/0 with protective earth contact is designed for 3-phase earthed networks and is used in three-phase motors. It can fit all housings in the 3A size, i.e. all plastic and metal varieties, EMC and also the extremely robust HPR and stainless steel housings. The Han® Q 4/0 comes with 4 power contacts and is used to enable equipment such as ventilators, fans or extraction units to be connected. Because these consumers are very common in the semi-conductor industry, the Han® Q 4/0 is the ideal solution to reduce costs because two of the consumers can be connected with one connector. The connector is also ideally suited for DC applications. However, in this case, it can only be used in 3A size plastic housings.

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 Engin…

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 power…


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.
