Extech Introduces Ergonomic, Affordable 600A True RMS AC and AC/DC Clamp Meters

Extech Instruments, makers of the best handheld test and measurement tools, introduces the new MA620 (AC) and MA640 (AC/DC) 600A True RMS clamp meters. Designed as high feature, high value autoranging clamp meters, the new MA620 and MA640 offer a host of advanced multimeter capabilities plus a built-in, non-contact voltage detector.

The affordable new clamp meters are compact and easy to hold while offering an ample 1.5" (40mm) jaw opening to accommodate conductors up to 750MCM. The large, illuminated, dual display is easy to see in poorly-lit job sites and features a 4-digit (6,000 count) readout complemented by a bargraph display. A thumb-dial selector is ergonomically placed for convenient, one-hand operation. Depending on a user's applications, two models are available: AC-only (MA620) and AC/DC (MA640) current measurements.

Advanced digital multimeter functionality powers the new Extech clamp meters. The MA620 and -640 offer user-selectable auto- or manual-ranging plus class-leading measurement functions including: current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, duty cycle (dwell), diode and continuity tests - plus temperature using the included Type K thermistor probe.

Convenient one-button functions include: HOLD to freeze a reading on the LCD; MAX/MIN to track and display maximum and minimum values; and REL to activate Relative mode for "zeroing out" the meter, useful for improving the accuracy of DC current measurements.

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.

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…
