New Contrinex HF-RFID Tags & Miniature Read/Write Modules with USB Connector


Contrinex presents important new developments for its high-frequency RFID system. To ensure excellent traceability even in difficult environments, Contrinex now offers tags that are embeddable in metal, tags for high temperature applications, and miniature read/write modules with an integral USB connector for use in confined spaces.

Contrinex HF-RFID tags embeddable in metal (ISO 15693)

The difficulty of using high frequency RFID tags (13.56 MHz) in metal environments is well known. Contrinex, however, has now developed HF-RFID tags that can be embedded in metal. Rated to protection class IP68/IP69K, they have been designed and tested to withstand over 2000 thermal cycles of 25°C to 180°C, remaining for 30 minutes at each extreme of temperature: They also resist a constant temperature of 180°C for over 2000 hours.

Contrinex has developed high temperature HF-RFID tags with remarkable temperature properties: they withstand more than 2000 cycles of 30 minutes at 25°C followed by 30 minutes at 250°C. They also resist a constant temperature of 250°C for over 2000 hours.

These tags allow product traceability in very difficult environments, for example paint-shop ovens in the automotive industry or powder sintering processes in metallurgy. The new tags are rated to protection class IP68/IP69K.

Contrinex HF-RFID read/write modules with USB connector (ISO 15693)

Contrinex is bringing to market a miniature read/write module that can be directly connected to a USB port and powered by it. This device fits into a threaded M18 housing measuring only 35 mm in length. It forms part of a set of four read/write modules for direct connection to a USB port. In addition to the miniature module, there is a 50 mm long M18 module and two M30 modules measuring 35 mm and 50 mm in length.

Its size and the fact that it can be connected directly to a PC make this module very attractive for many applications, either in office or industrial engineering, where space constraints play an important role.

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…

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.

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…
