TDK offers the 20 A iBH series point-of-load (POL) non-isolated DC-DC converters

TDK Corporation announces the introduction of the 20 A TDK-Lambda iBH series of POL non-isolated DC-DC converters. Accepting a wide range input of 3.5 VDC to 14 VDC, the series can operate from either a 5 VDC or 12 VDC bus.

The iBH series can provide output voltages from 0.7 V to 5.5 V with efficiencies of up to 96%. Capable of delivering up to 80 W, the converters can operate in high ambient temperature, low airflow environments with minimal power derating. The series is designed to meet a wide range of applications, including servers, routers and other information and communication technology (ICT) equipment, semiconductor-manufacturing equipment, measuring equipment, and general industrial equipment.

The surface-mount converters occupy 0.36 square inches of board space, measuring 0.8 in. x 0.45 in. x 0.39 in.(20.3 mm x 11.4 mm x 9.9 mm) with a weight of 6 g. As with all TDK-Lambda’s DOSA-compatible footprint POLs, the iBH does not need externally mounted loop-tuning components and has excellent transient response to load changes.

Product features include output trim adjustment, power good, remote sense, and a choice of positive or negative logic remote on/off. Full protection with auto-recovery is provided against input under-voltage, output short-circuit, and over-temperature. All models are certified to UL/CSA 60950-1, IEC/EN 60950-1 and carry the CE mark for the low voltage and RoHS2 directives.

  •     DOSA-compatible footprint
  •     Surface mountable
  •     Constant switching frequency
  •     No external loop tuning components needed
  •     Excellent transient response

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…
