Bel Power Solutions' Low Profile, Open Frame Series of AC-DC Power Supplies Target Wide Range of Industrial Applications

Announced today by Bel Fuse Inc. (NASDAQ:BELFA and NASDAQ:BELFB), a premier global manufacturer of power management devices, is the expansion of Bel Power Solutions'  open-frame, AC-DC power supply portfolio to include the low-profile ABC225 and ABC350 Series of power supplies for industrial applications. Specifically engineered for use in tight spaces, the high-efficiency units boast a less-than 1" (25 mm) low profile. The new series are comprised of either convection-cooled (no fans required) or forced-air versions to further maximize design flexibility and efficiencies. The ABC225 units deliver up to 225 Watts of output power with forced air-cooling or 112.5 Watts with convection cooling, whereas the ABC350 parts provide up to 350 Watts with forced air-cooling or 200 Watts with convection cooling.

With high power density and industry leading efficiency of greater than 94% at full load, the series are ideal for use in a broad array of space-constrained OEM, industrial, telecom and datacom applications in which minimal power loss, and easy thermal management are required. They are commonly specified for employment in lighting, IT equipment, test and measurement equipment, wireless communications, renewable energy, instrumentation, automation, broadcast and audio/video equipment, as well as HMI touch panels. Notably, the convection-cooled power supplies are suited for designs in which the elimination of fan maintenance, audible/ambient noise and vibration is necessary.

The power supplies accommodate the universal input voltage of 85-264 VAC or 390 VDC, 47-63 Hz. Units are provided standard with input overvoltage protection, over current protection, short circuit protection, and an isolated 12 V fan output. They are available in 6 output voltages ranging from 12 V to 58 V, and feature an operating temperature range of -40° to +70° C. ABC225 units feature a standard 2" x 4" industry-standard footprint, with a mean time between failures of (MTBF) 3.37 million hours. ABC350 units' industry-standard footprint is 3" x 5", and MTBF is 2.56 million hours. All parts are supplied with either a screw-terminal connection or Molex connector. A metal cover kit is optionally available.

RoHS compliant and CE Marked, the power supplies are safety agency certified per UL and NEMKO and meet the requirements of EN60950-1. They further meet the conducted and radiated EMI requirements of EN55022-B.

In quantities of 1,000, typical per-piece pricing for Bel Power Solutions' ABC225 Series of open-frame, AC-DC power supplies is $74.36; $99.32 for the ABC350 Series. Delivery is from stock to 12 weeks.

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 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.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
