Newport Introduces New Laser Alignment Tuning Kits

Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in lasers and photonics solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light®, announces the LAKIT Series, a new family of laser power alignment tuning kits. Ideal for laser tuning and alignment in research setups, the kit includes the new 1917-R laser power meter and a broad selection of optical detectors, making it easier for the researcher to match the laser type. Each kit contains an optical power meter, a detector, and the corresponding mounting assembly to simplify product selection and setup and to reduce costs.

The new LAKIT Series tuning kits utilize three types of detectors, silicon (Si), Germanium (Ge), or thermopile. They operate in wavelength ranges from 200 nm to 10.6 microns, and up to 100-watt average power. The 918D Series is designed for low power lasers (< 2 Watt/cm2) and operates in the visible or in the infrared (IR) spectrum. It features an integrated OD3 attenuator to increase the measurement dynamic range. The 818P Series thermopile detectors are an ideal choice for measuring the average power for high power lasers that operate both in continuous-wave (CW) and pulsed modes. The broadband flat spectral response ranges from 0.19 to 11 microns, with high damage threshold and very high sensitivity to optical power.

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…
