Convenient Wireless Outdoor Installations

With its IP 68 degree of protection, the round plug connector system gesis®IP+ by Wieland Electric is particularly suited for tough industry environments and for outdoor use. The 4-port gesis®RC RST-0/4 switch with integrated EnOcean radio technology makes the system even more versatile.

The four outputs for 230 V and max. 6 A each can be controlled separately via standard EnOcean sensor functions. The receivers (outputs) can be operated via remote control, from radio pushbuttons or via building automation gateways. This makes both easy and complex applications possible. The supply cable is connected to an unswitched output, so that an additional distribution box can be connected. Two LED controllers from the system family can be connected to each switched output. A transformer for low-voltage halogen lights is also available. The distribution box is UV-resistant and designed for ambient temperatures of -25 °C to 55 °C. The transmission frequency used is 868.3 MHz.

The RST installation system for pluggable electrical installations can be used in gardens, outdoor facilities and objects. Outdoor installations often consist of many different spotlights, ground lights, water feature lighting, transformers, and pumps. Easy handling of the system makes the electrical installation quick and safe. In temporary facilities such as holiday or event lighting in public areas, the components can be quickly disassembled and reused.

DIY store solutions cannot meet the complexity of larger systems; they do not often include an interface for building automation, or no quality switch programs to match the house installation design are available. DIY solutions often lack a high IP degree of protection for outdoor use and additional casings must be used.

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 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…
