Electri-Flex Introduces Type FSC Unjacketed Flexible Steel Conduit for Non-UL Applications

Electri-Flex introduces Type FSC to its line of unjacketed flexible steel conduits. Type FSC is intended as a metal raceway for wires and cable where UL Listing is not required. It is formed from a corrosion resistant, hot-dipped galvanized steel strip. Its profile and helical shape allow it to withstand substantial impact and crushing forces. Type FSC is available in sizes 3/8" through 4" and is suitable for use with connectors intended for “FMC” (Flexible Metal Conduit).

Electri-Flex’s line of unjacketed flexible steel conduits carry high impact and crush strength, make tight bends, are non-combustible and are ideal for high temperature applications. Type FSC compliments this line by offering a non-UL alternative to other UL and CSA approved products, such as Type BR and ABR.

Electri-Flex’s Liquatite® product line includes more than 30 types of liquidtight flexible electrical conduit including high-low temperature, halogen-free/low-smoke, EMI/RFI shielding, flame-retardant and many others. Electri-Flex also provides design expertise and prototyping assistance and can create cost-effective, custom solutions for the toughest electrical conduit requirements.

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…
