XP Power launches its smallest 130 W AC-DC power supplies with a 2" x 3" footprint

XP Power has announced the high efficiency ECP130 series of miniature open-frame AC-DC power supplies with safety approvals for the ITE and medical equipment markets.

The units deliver the full 130 W output with only 10 CFM of forced-air-cooling and are able to provide a high convection cooled rating of 100 W, eliminating the need for cooling fans. Seven single-output models have been announced, delivering either 12 VDC, 15 VDC, 18 VDC, 24 VDC, 28 VDC, 36 VDC, or 48 VDC. Each model accepts an input voltage of between 85 VAC and 264 VAC and has dual-input fuse protection on line and neutral.

The series has an ultra-compact footprint measuring only 50.8 mm x 76.2 mm and a very low profile of only 28 mm. Taking up 25% less board space than the current 2" x 4" industry standard, the range delivers a high power density of up to 19.7 W/in2 with typical efficiency figures of 95% and a no-load consumption of less than 0.5 W.

The ECP130 uses the latest design technology to provide an ultra-compact and low-profile power supply that is both highly efficient and ideally suited to almost any application. It is among the industry’s first AC-DC supplies to deliver these efficiencies in this size package and enable its use in both medical and ITE applications, as well as more general industrial systems.

The modules have been certified to meet ITE 60950-1 and 3rd edition medical approvals, including IEC60601-1 and ANSI/AMMI ES60601-1. They have low-leakage current and provide two means of patient protection (MOPP) isolation between input and output and one means of operator protection (MOOP) between output and ground.

All units in the ECP130 series of AC-DC supplies have a wide operating temperature range, from -40°C to 70°C, with no derating until 50°C, and meet Class B conducted and Class A radiated limits of EN55011 and EN55022. This removes the need for additional external EMI filtering.

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.

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’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…
