PRO-M DC/DC Converter - Weidmuller Ensures Stable and Electrically Isolated Power Supply with new connectPower DC/DC Converter



Weidmuller introduces a new DC/DC Converter to the PRO-M Power Supplies product line optimized for machinery and offering a host of advantages. This new electrically isolated DC/DC Converter avoids critical earth loops; from an unregulated or distorted input voltage, it generates a stable, low-distortion output voltage. With class III protection the compact converter is ideal for use in earth-free power systems, such as the battery backup systems found in marine technology, as well as in oil and gas, machinery, and factory automation applications.

Weidmuller’s DC/DC Converter is a versatile solution for all 24 VDC power supply applications. It features industry leading power specifications, excellent resistance to shock and vibration, an extremely thin profile, over 91% efficiency, and a status signal for remote monitoring.

Weidmuller’s thin design, with a width of only 60mm, and the capability to be mounted side-by-side without clearance requirements saves space in the cabinet. The metal clip-on foot provides increased stability on the DIN-rail as well as high vibration and shock resistance.

Integrated features such as an alarm output, which monitors the status of the 24V output voltage, and an LED that indicates DC OK status for the output voltage, the integrated transistor outputs, and the on/off status of the relay contact, provide clearly visible visual aids making trouble shooting quick and easy thus optimizing machine up-time. Weidmuller’s DC/DC Converter is extensively protected with an internal fuse on the input side and on the output side with short-circuit and overload protection as well as a power boost at 24VDC of 12A for one minute.

As with all Weidmuller PRO-M Power Supplies the DC/DC Converter is designed for extreme environments with an operating temperature range of -25° C to +70° C and approvals ranging from CE, TUV and GL to cULus and cURus for applications worldwide. The 3-year warranty for all PRO-M Power Supply products gives the customer ease of mind.

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.

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’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
