VersaLogic introduces the Anaconda, a low-power, EBX format, single-board computer

VersaLogic introduces the Anaconda – an EBX-format single-board computer (SBC). It features extensive I/O capabilities, low power consumption, and fanless operation over the full industrial temperature range. The Anaconda board leverages DMP's Vortex86DX2 System on Chip (SoC). It offers operation to 1 GHz, full industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, and low power requirements (5.5 Watts). Based on the industry-standard EBX form factor (5.75 x 8 inches), it is an excellent solution for industrial and medical applications that need a next-gen EBX-format solution, considerable on-board I/O, and moderate processing power.

The Anaconda features built-in data acquisition ports including eight analog inputs and thirty-two digital I/O lines. Basic on-board I/O includes dual Ethernet with network boot capability, up to 2 GB soldered-on DDR2 RAM, five USB ports, four serial ports, a SATA interface that supports high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives, removable flash storage, and three general purpose timers.

Systems can be enhanced by leveraging the Anaconda's on-board Mini PCIe expansion socket with plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Analog, and other mini cards. The Mini PCIe socket includes mSATA capability providing flexible solid-state drive (SSD) options.

An industry-standard PC/104-Plus™ expansion site provides plug-in access to a wide variety of expansion modules from numerous vendors. The SPX expansion interface provides additional plug-in expansion for low-cost analog and digital I/O.

Anaconda features no moving parts, soldered-on RAM, and was designed and tested to withstand extreme temperatures, high-impact, and vibration. This single-board computer is an ideal choice for applications that require a rugged, high reliability product.

Designed for full industrial temperature (-40°C to +85°C) operation, the rugged Anaconda boards meet MIL-STD-202G specifications for mechanical shock and vibration. Latching connectors provide additional ruggedization for use in harsh environments. Transient voltage suppression (TVS) devices on critical I/O ports provide enhanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for the system.

The Anaconda features an American Megatrends (AMI) BIOS with OEM enhancements. The field-reprogrammable BIOS supports custom defaults, remote/network booting, and other application functions. Anaconda is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX.

Anaconda's on-board I/O functions are supported by VersaAPI. VersaAPI is an application programming interface (API) that simplifies software access to the on-board I/O devices. Supported devices include analog input, digital I/O, and timer/counters. VersaAPI is provided for Windows and Linux operating systems.

As with all VersaLogic products, the Anaconda is covered by VersaLogic's 5-year product warranty and 5+ year availability guarantee. VersaLogic's Life Extension program typically keeps each technology generation available for 10+ years. The Anaconda provides a durable embedded computer solution with an excellent cost of ownership.

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 M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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.
