har-flexicon®: tool-free individual conductor wiring with 1.27 mm spacing



The HARTING Technology Group is creating new standards in the PCB field with har-flexicon®, the new miniaturized and field-assemblable individual conductor connection technology with 1.27 mm spacing.

Flexible individual conductor wiring of industrial devices with PCBs as their key component is one of the principal requirements in modern device technology – and it will always stay that way. Because sensoric and actoric subassemblies need to be connected on site rapidly, PCB connection technology must continue to be universally applicable. What is required is flexibility in the connection of I/O signals with tool-less individual conductor wiring – which enables on-site assembly in the field.

It is always the overall, not the individual, costs of components which are paramount in the development of industrial subassemblies. The use of reflow and SMD solderable components in automated assembly and soldering processes leads to manufacturing costs which are lower than those for the manual assembly and wave soldering of wired components.

There is a universal demand for units to become ever more compact. Efficient device design and more powerful components with higher efficiency and greater power density lead to innovative devices, which deliver a growing variety of functions and performance coupled with reduced device volume. So, even with classical PBC connectors, miniaturization continues to march ahead with components in this segment constantly getting smaller and smaller. Despite this reduction in size, users still expect to operate connection technology just as conveniently and quickly as conventional products with higher spacing measurements.

har-flexicon® meets all these requirements consistently and is a model for rapid and convenient wiring of ever more compact devices whilst addressing the economics of the assembly process.

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 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.
