Gems Sensors & Controls Introduces a New Line of High Precision Magnetostrictive Level Sensors

Gems® Sensors & Controls™ (Gems), a global leader in liquid level, pressure, and flow sensors, miniature solenoid valves, and fluidic systems announced the launch of the new XT-1000 series of magnetostrictive continuous level sensors for OEM and end user applications.  

The XT-1000 series offers a line of robust, stainless steel sensors with highly accurate continuous level measurement in lengths from 8 inches to over 13 feet. The XT-1000 measures liquid media levels using the complete probe length and is largely unaffected by temperature. The sensor offers constant sensing of fluid level regardless of the physical state of the media including: bubbles, foam, condensation, precipitation, pressure, temperature or changes in density. 

The use of magnetostriction is ideal in applications that require extremely accurate indication such as the chemical and water treatment industries. The 4-20mA sensor is compatible with a variety of tank dimensions and offers an explosion-proof version for installation in potentially explosive atmospheres where electrical equipment of category 1 (zone 0) or category ½ (zone 0/1) are required. Also available with the digital Hart protocol operating system, the sensor is able to output the position of the first, second or both floats. 

“The XT-1000 increases the breadth of the Gems continuous level product line with a highly accurate magnetostrictive technology solution” says Kevin Castonguay, Product Marketing Manager for Gems Sensors & Controls. “The high resolution sensor is a robust solution for a wide variety of OEM and end user applications such as; chemicals and petrochemicals, biotech and pharmaceuticals, mechanical engineering, water treatment, beverage, food processing and underground storage tanks for leak detection.”

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…
