Durst Launches New Standardized Transfer Case

The Durst division of Regal Beloit Corporation has announced the inaugural model in its new line of standardized transfer cases.

The model 11D transfer case is a heavy-duty gearbox engineered to meet the rugged operational demands of a wide range of mobile off-highway applications. The 11D features an 11.15-inch center drop distance and a two-speed, three-shaft design. Targeted toward mobile construction, agricultural, forestry and mining equipment, it excels at transferring between two-wheel and four-wheel drive and delivering mechanical power to auxiliary equipment in high and low ranges.

The 11D measures 9.4 inches x 14.9 inches x 23.3 inches. It comes with ratios of 1.61/4.47 and 2.51/6.83, and has a maximum torque rating of 907 lb-ft. It is compatible with any SAE pump adapter.

The 11D is the first of five model sizes in the new transfer case family that Durst will introduce in 2012. Durst currently is developing standardized transfer cases with 9-inch, 12-inch, 16-inch and 20-inch gear centers. Durst will offer all the transfer cases in the new product line, including the 11D, as standard, modified or customized versions.

The 11D has undergone extensive product qualification testing to verify oil circulation, operating temperatures and endurance limits. A new horsepower rating system allows for faster turnaround on sizing of the gearbox to customer duty cycle requirements.

In developing this new product line, Durst set out to achieve many of the same customer and performance benefits derived from its next-generation modular hydraulic pump drives. For example, maximizing the use of common components across the product range reduces cost and increases availability while improving the ease of assembling and servicing the transfer cases. In addition, standardization trims the component part numbers to inventory and accelerates turnaround times.

The design of the 11D eliminates covers, shims, screws and sealing compound. Potential leak paths have been removed as well. The simpler design makes manufacturing and servicing more efficient.

The symmetrical hole pattern on the sides of the gearbox perpendicular to the input/output positions simplifies mounting. Thanks to the class 10 spur gears with cylindrical or spherical roller bearings, no bearing shimming is required. Input and output options can be easily changed without disturbing bearings.

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…
