Don’t Compromise on Category 6A Cabling

The benefits of IP convergence are many (fewer maintenance requirements, reduced operations costs, etc.). By investing in a 10Gb/s cabling solution that supports high-density, high-bandwidth applications, you can support excellent network performance and ensure that your convergence investments will work now and in the future.

When selecting a futureproof cabling solution, there are certain cabling characteristics you shouldn’t be willing to compromise on.

High Performance
The cable’s ability to offer noise isolation between pairs and control alien crosstalk are crucial to performance (and the performance of the devices and technology connected to the network). Protection against noise interference and network congestion will minimize disruptive effects and help increase the operational bandwidth of the cabling channel.

But keep in mind that these features – while vital to performance – may add extra bulk to the cabling, which increases labor and installation costs.

Quality Design
The right cabling design features can make installation faster and easier, saving time and money on cabling projects. Look for the following qualities to improve installation simplicity:
  •     Smaller cable diameter (OD) to reduce weight and space requirements
  •     Easy-to-separate pairs that require fewer twists
  •     Easy-to-remove barrier tape and spline
  •     Small bend radius to accommodate tight spaces and workstations
Although these attributes offer long-term financial savings due to faster, easier installation, they sometimes come at a steep upfront price. This sacrfice may require you to weigh the high costs against the time and financial savings you’ll see as a result.

The Right Price
Staying within budget on a cabling project is crucial to the bottom line – but cutting costs can cause problems.

With typical Category 6A cable investments, high upfront costs are frequently expected when you desire high performance, quality design and simple installation. Until now, there hasn’t been a cabling system that combines high performance, quality design and installation ease with an affordable price point.

As a premise horizontal cable for 10G Ethernet applications, Belden’s 10GB24 Category 6A U/UTP Cables combine simple installation with quality mechanical and electrical characteristics at a cost-competitive price. The cabling doesn’t sacrifice performance in order to make installation easier, and doesn’t trade quality design for affordability.

Belden’s 10GB24 Category 6A U/UTP Cables provide building owners with a reliable, high-performance way to futureproof their enterprise networks.

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.
