HARTING Displays Retail Trade Solutions

As one of over 200 exhibitors from more than 20 countries, the HARTING Technology Group was on location once again at the EuroCIS in Düsseldorf this year.

The trade fair, which ran from February 28 to March 1 this year, has been a byword for innovative IT solutions for retail trade for over ten years. Solutions for today and visions of tomorrow are put on display at EuroCIS, from cash register and sales systems to check-out, anti-theft protection and staff planning solutions.

In Düsseldorf, the Espelkamp-based family owned and managed company demonstrated, among other things, how Smokythek solutions, HARTING’s sales systems for the retail trade, can be efficiently and easily interconnected. With the new menu navigation and operating options presented, HARTING showed that modern vending machine technology has many benefits to offer users and operators.
Fairgoers also had the opportunity to learn more about the MultiCarry first hand - a new generation of vertical conveyors which offers a range of packaging content as well as variable formats.

With its successful presence at the EuroCIS 2012 trade fair, the HARTING Technology Group once again demonstrated innovations that are shaping the markets – innovations that are systematically geared towards customer benefits. In this way, the Group is continuously generating interest in new concepts among retaling customers.

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…
