New No-Drift Absolute Gaging Package from HEIDENHAIN

Continuing their path of innovation, HEIDENHAIN Corporation has now coupled the new ACANTO Absolute Length Gage with the established and versatile ND 2100G GAGE-CHEK metrology readouts. This gaging package is a great solution for many fixed gaging applications.

The HEIDENHAIN ACANTO Absolute Length Gage with EnDat 2.2 provides the benefits of an optical encoder and solves many of the problems of different length gages.  No longer will quality managers have to worry about their gages drifting, linearity over the entire measuring range, or referencing upon startup. The ACANTO’s measuring principle is the measurement standard and does not drift over time nor does it require mastering. “Sweet spots” are nonexistent with the ACANTO as 2 µm of accuracy are held throughout the entire measuring length.  The new absolute technology, using EnDat 2.2, enables the ACANTO to know its position upon power up with no need to reference. The ACANTO comes in both spring operated and pneumatically operated models and is offered in 12 mm and 30 mm measuring lengths.

The HEIDENHAIN ND 2100G GAGE-CHEK will handle gaging and inspection tasks with ease, from simple pass/fail detection up to complex logic statements communicating to a PLC. They can be configured for basic or advanced operations where inputs can be assigned and combined as desired, along with mathematical, trigonometric or statistical formulas. This makes it possible to measure even complex dimensions such as thickness, flatness, volume and more. Rapid acquisition of measurement data can monitor dynamic events such as the eccentricity of a rotating shaft.

The HEIDENHAIN ND 2100G GAGE-CHEK now has a new color LED lit display which will display results numerically or graphically as a bar graph or dial indicator. The ND 2100G GAGE-CHEK can manage up to 100 parts, each with up to 16 visible measurement features and 16 hidden ones and can save thousands of data entry points for internal statistical process control (SPC) or export.  User customization is easy with programmable soft and hot keys.  Min/Max functions monitor and store data, and warning and tolerance limits can be set to each display value.

A new plug and play routine allows for effortless interfacing of the ACANTO and ND 2100G GAGE-CHEK. The ND 2100G GAGE-CHEK can interface with 1 to 8 ACANTO Gages and will be an effective solution for many gaging applications. The ND 2100G GAGE-CHEK will also accept any EnDat 2.2 encoders from HEIDENHAIN including linear, rotary, and angle.

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 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.

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…
