1593HAM Series Development Board Enclosures

Hammond Manufacturing’s design-specific molded enclosures support the new types of credit-card-sized, low-cost bare-board computers, which typically run Linux and provide basic functionality across a wide range of applications. Although broadly similar in size and shape, there are inevitable differences in the positioning of I/O, power, and expansion ports on each design. Hammond’s enclosures, derived from its popular 1593 family, are available in translucent blue, grey or black, and each version is configured for the particular design of board, with machined slots, cutouts, and apertures in the cover and end panels. In some variants, the covers are molded with the required access points. The new format of development boards are aimed at both professional developers and hobbyists.

Initially, the supported computers are the Arduino™ Uno, Due and Mega, the Beaglebone and Beaglebone Black, and the Freescale Freedom. Enclosures for the Arduino Tre and Intel Galileo are in development and will be available soon. In such a fast-moving environment, new versions are regularly being added to support additional development board designs as they are introduced.

The enclosures provide good protection for the board themselves, and have dedicated access positions for external connectivity such as Ethernet, USB and serial ports.

Hammond Manufacturing has developed a new moulded enclosure specifically designed to house the Raspberry Pi Models B and B+. The 1593HAMPI’s are available in translucent blue, clear, grey, and black. The enclosure features a stylish rounded design with cut-outs for all the I/O interfaces and supported accessories. The Raspberry Pi board simply clips into the base. A catch secures the assembly and allows the case to be easily opened if required.

Features
  •     Machined from Hammond’s popular 1593 series plastic enclosures

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 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.

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…
