Bivar Launches 4xpress

Bivar, a leading specialty provider of LED indication products and solutions, has announced the launch of 4xpress, an online program that enables Bivar to quickly respond to custom light pipe design inquiries. As part of the 4xpress program, Bivar will assess new projects and provide recommendations within two business days or less. The benefit to design engineers is they will now receive critical feedback as quickly as possible to help them determine if a viable light pipe design solution is available to meet their cost and production requirements.

Bivar’s light pipes are ideally suited to applications with difficult designs where the LED light source is positioned far from the viewing surface or is obstructed by other components. Bivar’s 4xpress program is targeted to engineers facing this challenge as they design applications for a wide range of markets including medical, industrial, audio/video and security.

Before 4xpress, design engineers were challenged not only by difficult designs but also by lengthy response times to their custom light pipe design inquiries. Ranging from several days to several weeks, these industry average response times can cause serious delays in a product design schedule. Bivar’s 4xpress program significantly reduces average response times, providing design engineers the information they need in a timely manner.

Bivar has years of experience analyzing, evaluating and providing solutions to a wide variety of unique and difficult product designs. The company has built its reputation by working closely with its customers to provide solutions – some complex and custom, others simple, standard product modifications. From brand new designs to retrofitting existing designs, Bivar takes into consideration the resources and urgency of each project and becomes an extension of its customers’ teams.

“There are many new and exciting applications ideal for LED indication,” said Michael Finn, Bivar vice president of sales and marketing. “To keep up with the rapid pace of evolving technology, we’ve created 4xpress to offer solutions to our customers’ product design challenges. We have an experienced engineering team that has spent years utilizing industry best practices, manufacturability and cost optimization and can provide viable solutions to our customers. The new 4xpress program enables our customers to maintain momentum and bring their products to market faster.”

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 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. 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…
