Fluke Calibration Introduces MET/CAL® Plus Calibration Management Software version 8.0

Fluke Calibration, a leader in precision calibration instrumentation and software, introduces version 8.0 of its MET/CAL® Plus Calibration Management Software, the latest edition of the industry-leading application suite for calibration professionals who need to automate the calibration process and manage calibration assets efficiently and consistently.

MET/CAL Plus 8.0 software adds many new enhancements, including an expanded Procedure Editor with a more flexible user interface, more powerful functions for editing, testing, and storing procedures, increased security allowing users to create procedures that cannot be edited or changed by others, and the ability to automate a wider variety of references including power sensors, RF power meters, and National Instruments PXI systems. The new version supports compliance with calibration and quality standards including the ANSI/NCSL Z540.3, ISO 9000, ISO/IEC 17025, and NRC 10 CFR.

MET/CAL Plus is a software suite consisting of two applications: MET/CAL for automated calibration and MET/TRACK® for test and measurement asset management. The combination allows calibration professionals to automate calibration on test and measurement tools and equipment, including DC/LF, RF and microwave instruments. The combination also allows users to easily create, edit, test, and document calibration procedures, and track asset information, including calibration and maintenance history and status, traceability, users, customers, and locations.

Calibration data can be easily analyzed, reported and shared with MET/CAL Plus software. Customized reports and printed certificates can be produced with the software, and data can be exported to other corporation systems.

Fluke Calibration offers MET/CAL Plus software users extended support through the MET/SUPPORTSM Gold support program. The annual membership program includes priority access for software support, free software upgrades, free access to over 4,000 warranted MET/CAL procedures, and 20 percent discount on training and database services.

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…
