New ESD Suppressor Series from Littelfuse Protects Sensitive Electronics from Damaging Discharges Up to 30kV

Littelfuse, Inc., the global leader in circuit protection, has introduced the XGD Series XTREME-GUARD™ ESD Suppressor, available in 0402- and 0603-sized, flat-topped surface mount packages. Based on breakthrough ESD technology, it protects sensitive electronics against electrostatic discharges as high as 30kV and is suitable for high voltage applications up to 32VDC. When correctly integrated into a circuit design, the XGD Series can safely absorb repetitive ESD strikes nearly four times the maximum level specified in the IEC61000-4-2 international standard without performance degradation. Extremely low capacitance makes the XGD Series suitable for use in high-frequency and high-speed data, video, antenna and I/O circuits. Even after multiple ESD strikes, it exhibits ultra-low current leakage (<1nA), ensuring minimal power losses, so it’s well-suited for protecting battery-powered electronics like wearables. Both sizes offer much higher voltage ratings than other ESD suppressors with similar board footprints; they also offer far greater ESD protection than many TVS Diodes while providing much lower capacitance and leakage current and higher voltage ratings.

Applications can be found in the industrial, consumer electronics, telecom/datacom, and white goods/home appliances markets.

“XGD Series XTREME-GUARD™ ESD Suppressors are designed for high-frequency, high-speed applications that demand high voltage ratings and extreme ESD protection,” said Johnny Chang, global product manager for the XGD Series line. “At the same time, they are ideal for general-purpose ESD protection in wearable technology, smart TVs, smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes, gaming consoles, stationary and portable medical devices, etc.”

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 E

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 p

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.
