Vacon North America Begins Production of VACON 100 AC Drives in Chambersburg, PA Facility



The global AC drives manufacturer Vacon has hit a milestone and will begin fully manufacturing the VACON® 100 AC Drives in the Chambersburg, PA facility. Prior to this, the components of the VACON 100 AC Drives were manufactured at the parent factory in Vaasa, Finland and then sent to Chambersburg's mini factory to be assembled and distributed to Vacon North America customers.

"Local manufacturing is an important prerequisite for success in the AC drives market in NA. It enables shorter delivery times and a quick customer response time for general support or in developing complex solutions for local customers," states Tom Doring, President, Vacon North America.

"Moving to the new factory in Chambersburg in 2009 has made it possible to extend the range of manufactured products and expand production capacity. The next major step was to start production of VACON 100 units in Chambersburg which we have begun to do now," Mr. Doring concludes.

The 66,998-sq.-ft. single-story factory in Chambersburg, PA was also awarded LEED® Gold Certification in 2010 as established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). LEED is the nation's pre-eminent program for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

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.
