Belden Introduces Lumberg Automation M12 Shielded Railway Connectors. New M12 shielded connectors comply with all international railway standards and stringent fire protection requirements, including Hazard Level 2, to provide maximum security in railway

Belden Inc. (NYSE:BDC), a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has added rugged M12 shielded railway connectors to its Lumberg Automation product range. The new railway connectors are specially designed for use in trains while complying with EN 50155, IEC 61373 and DIN CLC/TS 50467 railway standards.

The M12 connectors are 4-pin D-coding (ProfiNet) and come in either a molded (single- or double-ended) cordset or field attachable version. The field-attachable version has threaded joints and spring-type terminals enabling simple assembly, while both feature Cat 5 and Cat 5e transmission characteristics in accordance with ISO IEC 11801 and TIA/EIA-568-B.2.

Having a number of choices ensures flexibility in the installation process.

"The robust design, high reliability and long service life of these connectors can be combined with OCTOPUS Industrial Ethernet switches from Hirschmann and Belden railway cables for cost-effective end-to-end solution," said Hiyam Wakeem, product manager.

There are a variety of applications suitable for these connectors, including networking control modules for doors and air conditioning in trains. The shielded railway connectors can also be used in combination with IP cameras or infotainment systems.

While the housings of the molded connectors are made of PA plastic, the field-attachable versions consist of nickel-plated die-cast zinc. There are a number of cable options and variable cable lengths including irradiated, halogen-free polymer (FRNC) with a 22-gauge cross-section diameter. The single- and double-ended ProfiNet cordsets are offered in lengths of 2, 5 or 10 meters. Other cable lengths are available upon request.

Lumberg Automation brand means dependable signal transmission – even in harsh industrial environments. The Lumberg Automation brand represents experience and expertise in automation technology, developed since pioneering the industry’s first ratcheted IP 67 round connector for harsh environments.

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 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.
