USRobotics Adds 360° Rotating Folio Case/Stand For the iPad 2 to Tablet Accessory Product Portfolio

USRobotics, a Platinum Equity company and leading provider of Internet access and networking products, today announced it will expand its popular tablet accessories line with the introduction of an iPad 2 folio case/stand.

“This versatile case/stand is a home away from home for your iPad 2,” said Bruce Swail, CEO of USRobotics. “iPads are used for an array of business, entertainment, and educational applications and this case is designed to make transporting and using your iPad 2 more comfortable, productive, and convenient. The distinctive white stitching accenting the cover gives this case more style than competing cases, and when the case is closed it is designed to display the device’s Apple logo, letting your iPad speak for itself.”

The USRobotics 360° Rotating Folio Case/Stand for the iPad 2 (Model 5220) is designed specifically for the iPad owner’s needs. The easy-to-grip outer shell securely encases the iPad2, while the soft interior lining safeguards the screen from scratches and dings during transport or storage. The USR5220’s 360° rotation feature allows individuals to easily transition from portrait to landscape viewing while simultaneously personalizing their viewing angle. Whether typing with a wireless keyboard, viewing movies, or presenting a slideshow, performance will not be limited by inflexible positions. The folio’s straightforward design delivers easy access to all buttons, ports, and iPad 2 cameras. In addition, the sleep mode magnet quickly powers down the iPad 2 when the folio is closed, prolonging battery life.

“It’s hard to go anywhere today without seeing someone using their computing devices,” adds Swail. “When personal computers made the transition to tablets, we became free to use the same device for both personal and work activities. Now, iPad 2 owners know they can safely transport and easily use their iPads anywhere they want, in a case that is as stylish as the iPad itself. We’re happy to present a product that conforms to the individual – not the other way around.”

The folio case is the latest addition to the USR Tablet Accessory family, including Bluetooth keyboards, adjustable stands, and an iDevice charging stand. The accessories are intended for a wide variety of mobile devices including tablets, iPhones, iPads, smartphones, netbooks, and eReaders.

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…
