IDEC releases RV8S Solid State Interface Relays



IDEC Corporation announces the addition of the RV8S solid state interface relays to its existing RV8 DIN rail product line. The RV8S features 100mA to 3A switching capability in a compact 6mm wide space. Other leading RV8S features include high switching cycles, extended operating life and high-speed load switching. A common application is as an interface device between a PLC or other controller outputs and a load with high power requirements.

The RV8S can switch loads up to 240 VAC, and it has passed 100K cycles of UL Extended Endurance testing. Common uses of the RV8S include general load switching in control systems for assembly machines, solenoids, molding machines, and other applications requiring a high repetition rate.

The RV8S has operate and release times which are much faster than electromechanical relays. Depending on the specific model, the operate time is as fast as 40µsec with a 200uS release time. The relay also generates no acoustic and far less electrical noise than its electromechanical counterpart because it makes use of semiconductor outputs instead of electrically sparking contacts.

The RV8S requires much less power to operate, about 5-10 times less than an equivalent electromechanical relay. This is particularly important when the relay is driven by a PLC or similar discrete output, as these types of outputs are often low power.

The RV8S is suitable for DIN-rail mounting, and has appropriate UL/c-UL and CE ratings. It also has IP20 protection, and can safely operate in temperatures from -20 to 60ºC and humidity from 5 to 85%. The RV8S supports flexible wire termination options, including screw terminal and spring clamp models.

The RV8S is available for 24 Vdc, 48 Vdc and 240Vac input voltage applications, with output voltage ranges of 0-24Vdc, 0-48Vdc and 24-280Vac respectively. The 24-280Vac output versions are available in random or zero-cross models. The switching configuration for all models is single-pole, Normally Open.

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…

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.
