Milwaukee® Continues to FUEL Innovation with M18 FUEL™ 1/4" Hex Impact Driver

Milwaukee Electric Tool continues to expand the fastest growing 18V platform in the industry with the introduction of the new M18 FUEL™ 1/4" Hex Impact Driver. As part of the new M18 FUEL™ family, a new breed of cordless power tools within the M18™ System, the new 1/4" Hex Impact Driver features Milwaukee’s exclusive combination of the POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM™ Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS™ Electronic Intelligence to deliver up to 3X longer motor life, up to 50% more runtime, and a proprietary 3-Mode DRIVE CONTROL™ feature.

“The 3-Mode DRIVE CONTROL™ feature gives users better control over the power and speed required for specific applications,” says Tom Simeone, Sr. Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool Corporation. “With the touch of a button, they can go from a precise application such as fastening small machine screws to an application that requires maximum performance such as driving lag screws.”

The new POWERSTATE™ Brushless Motor works harder, lives longer, and converts energy into power and torque more efficiently than leading competitors.  The POWERSTATE™ Motor is completely designed, engineered and built by Milwaukee Tool, providing up to 1600 in-lbs of torque and 0-2900 RPM to make the M18 FUEL™ 1/4" Hex Impact Driver the most powerful tool in its class.  The POWERSTATE™ Motor also reduces noise and cools more rapidly, delivering years of maintenance-free performance.  

Milwaukee REDLITHIUM™ Batteries provide significantly more run-time, power and recharges than any other Lithium product on the market. REDLITHIUM™ also delivers best-in-class performance in extreme job-site conditions.  With Milwaukee® durability built into each pack, the REDLITHIUM™ Battery operates cooler and performs in climates as low as 0°F/-18°C with fade free power. A battery fuel gauge also displays remaining charge for less down time on the job.

REDLINK PLUS™ Intelligence hardware and software, the most advanced electronic system on the market, allows the user to choose between three fastening modes with the DRIVE CONTROL™ feature.  Mode #1 is for precision work (0-850 RPM, 200 in-lbs of torque), Mode # 2 helps prevent damage to fasteners and material (0-2,100 RPM, 700 in-lbs of torque) and Mode #3 delivers maximum performance for the toughest applications (0-2,900 RPM, 1600 in-lbs of torque).

In addition, all M18 FUEL™ products include the new multi-voltage charger to allow users to charge all M12™ and M18™ batteries with one charger.

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…
