Cost-Saving DIN Rail Socket of ELESTA Safety Relays

ELESTA relays GmbH, producer of relays with forcibly guided contacts (safety relays), has presented its new DIN rail mounting socket SRD-SIM4 for its SIM3 and SIM4 ranges of relays.

Particular attention has been paid to meet the specific requirements in the area of safety. Offset connection terminals prevent confusions when connecting the cable harness.

Permanent relay retaining clips are integrated in the mounting base and feature a lifting mechanism for easy removal of the SIM relay. Moreover, the clip is suitable for fastening of safety wires which prevent manipulations at the relay or socket. 

Next to its suitability for mounting on the 35mm DIN rail, the mounting base can also be installed on a plate or in machine housings.

The combination of socket and relay is a cost-effective alternative for additional, safe switching contact outputs, especially where small series, special machines or retrofits are concerned. Simple extensions of the functions are quickly accomplished without major effort.

The SRD-SIM4 socket is laid out for loads up to 6A / 240V AC and suitable for ambient temperatures from -25°C to 70°C. The requirements of combustibility category CTI 250 are complied with and confirmed by UL approvals.

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…
