The Spectrum Sensor Line of Rugged Temperature Sensors from API Technologies to be Highlighted at AHR Expo 2012

API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a provider of electronic systems, subsystems, RF, and secure systems for defense, aerospace, and commercial applications, announced today that it will showcase its Spectrum Sensors line of advanced thermal sensors at Booth #3640 at the International Air-conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Exposition (AHR Expo 2012). AHR Expo 2012 takes place January 23-25 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“This year we will be highlighting our line of rugged temperature sensors which provide excellent thermal tracking in even the most daunting environments,” said Larry Howanitz, Vice President, Spectrum Sensors Product Group of API Technologies. “They are ideal for high moisture applications when there is a continuous freeze/thaw cycle—such as HVAC, food & beverage, and refrigeration systems.” These rugged sensors operate over a temperature range of -40° to +105°C.

The Spectrum Sensor line of rugged temperature sensors is available in both 1/4” OD and 3/16” OD tube sizes. They come in a wide variety of sensor curves and resistances (including thermistor and RTD), as well as in various cable lengths and terminations. These sensors can also be combined with clip sizes from 3/8” to 7/8” to create an easily mountable sensor for measuring temperature on straight or bent tubing.

In addition to its rugged temperature sensors, API will also showcase its full line of temperature sensing probes and assemblies for HVAC and refrigeration applications as well as PTC and NTC thermistor components.

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…
