Belden Launches New Lumberg Automation Lion-M PROFINET I/O Modules. The new I/O modules from Lumberg Automation’s LioN-M series enable sensors and actuators to be linked into real-time PROFINET I/O networks.

ROFINET modules to its Lumberg Automation product range. The new PROFINET I/O modules support both the real time (RT) and isochronous real time (IRT) standards.

In the 0980 ESL 701 (16DI) module, channels are used as inputs, and in the universal version 0980 ESL 700 (16DIO Universal) they are used as either inputs or outputs in any combination up to a total of 16 points. The 0980 ESL 700 has a rated output current of up to 1.6A, with a maximum total current capacity of 9A. The easy diagnostic concept enables precise fault location for each individual port. Both modules facilitate line topologies and can also be used for existing communications structures such as cable ducts and energy chains without making any changes to their physical layout. The universal module also offers the highest possible degree of flexibility, not only at the planning stage but also when making changes at the commissioning stage or during subsequent upgrades.

Both network ports are equipped with four-pole M12 connectors with D coding. The eight I/O ports, each of which can be assigned to two digital I/O signals, have five-pole M12 connectors with A coding. The network ports are color-coded to prevent any possible confusion. These PROFINET I/O modules support DCP and LLDP. DCP protocol is used to assign the unique PROFINET device name to the module. By this device name the module is clearly identified in the PROFINET network. GSDML files can be downloaded from

The I/O modules have a robust housing made of PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) and measuring 243 x 60 x 23 mm (length x width x height); including the slots for the power supply, the height is 39.5 mm. Both versions meet the requirements for industrial protection class IP67 and are designed for temperatures ranging from 10° to +60°C. The power supply, which is connected via two five-pole 7/8" connectors, has a rated voltage of 24V and a range of 11V to 30V.

With the new I/O modules from the Lumberg Automation, LioN-M series, Belden is now also offering an innovative connectivity solution for ProfiNet I/O.

“These modules, which were especially designed for machines and systems with high signal density and stringent real-time requirements, allow easy cabling, individual I/O configuration and precise diagnostics. This means that maintenance and downtime can be reduced, thus increasing the productivity of your machines and systems,” said Hiyam Wakeem, product manager.

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.
