Voltage Monitor Suits Commercial/Industrial Applications

SymCom, Inc., the innovative manufacturer of MotorSaver® and PumpSaver®, is pleased to introduce the latest addition to their product line: The Model 460 Three Phase Voltage Monitor. SymCom has manufactured a quality line of voltage monitors for nearly 30 years. These products protect motors from problems such as phase loss, phase reversal, overvoltage, undervoltage, voltage unbalance, and phase/frequency shift. The Model 460 combines unsurpassed motor protection and control with finger-safe wiring, easy installation, and LED fault indication.

The Model 460 comes standard with four adjustable settings: nominal voltage, restart delay time, unbalance percentage trip point, and trip delay time. When a harmful condition is detected, an output relay is deactivated after the selected time (Trip Delay). The output relay reactivates after power line conditions return to an acceptable level for the selected time (Restart Delay). Fault diagnostics and run conditions are displayed by two indicator LEDs: the red LED flashes or stays solid to indicate different fault conditions, and the green LED flashes during the restart delay and stays solid when the output relay is energized.

The Model 460 is useful in many industries for countless applications. These industries include: mining, agriculture, building trades, chemical, fire protection, HVAC, municipal water, wastewater treatment, pulp and paper, refining, and many others. Pumps, compressors, conveyors, blowers, generators, and many other commercial and industrial motorized products can be protected and controlled using the Model 460 MotorSaver®.

Today's industrial operations cannot afford to be shut down due to motor failures. Motor repair or replacement, downtime, and loss of production can be very costly. Over 15% of these motor failures are due to power fluctuations and are easily detected before damage occurs, which is why a voltage monitor should be installed with every motor. The Model 460, backed by a 5-year warranty, offers advanced motor protection and control in a small package and at a competitive price.

In response to the ever-changing needs of their clients worldwide, SymCom brings together proven design technology with a robust new enclosure. The finger-safe, IEC style enclosure can be easily mounted into any panel with two screws or snapped onto a standard DIN rail.

SymCom is raising the bar with modern, efficient manufacturing techniques while maintaining the highest product quality. Using surface mount components, microcontrollers, and proven designs, the Model 460 can be manufactured at a cost much lower than competitor's products.

According to Warren Leopold, SymCom's Vice President of Sales and Marketing, the Model 460 has set the new industry standard for voltage monitors. Never before has anyone incorporated so much control and functionality into such a competitively priced unit.

The Model 460 is UL listed and meets CSA requirements for use in Canada. It also passes the European requirements for protective switching devices and carries the CE mark. This means that the Model 460 can stand up to the electromagnetic disturbances often seen in industrial settings. The European market requires that products carry the CE mark, as do international markets from Siberia to the Middle East.

Simple wiring, DIN rail compatibility, and the auto-ranging design of the Model 460 allow for hassle-free installation. It can be connected directly to the three phase lines without fuses, significantly reducing installation time and cost. In addition, the Model 460 works on all three phase systems from 190–480 VAC. SymCom's customer focused philosophy means that users can find a real person at the other end of the phone line if they need help with their installation.

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.
