USRobotics uShare Mini NAS Adapter Provides Easy File and Media Sharing At Work or At Home

USRobotics, a Platinum Equity company and leading provider of Internet access and networking products, today introduced the USR8710 uShare™ Mini NAS Adapter, a new device that allows files and media to be easily shared at home or at work all from a single device. One of the easiest NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices to use and install, the USR8710 requires only the connection of an external USB hard drive or USB flash drive to the Gigabit NAS adapter and a few mouse clicks to securely share files and a printer over a local network or to stream music, movies, pictures or videos with an integrated media center for iTunes, Xbox and PS3.

“People want to be able to share their pictures and files across multiple computers and systems” said Bruce Swail, CEO for US Robotics. “The NAS adapter allows for quick and secure access to remote files on a hard drive from anywhere without the need to carry extra drives or bulky devices. And because USB NAS means better compatibility, the device can be used to share information across Windows, Mac and Linux systems.”

The uShare Mini NAS Adapter provides access to shared files remotely from anywhere with just an Internet connection. The device allows for the addition of up to 2 TB of fast and secure networked storage for easy file sharing and media streaming. It features integrated back-up software for file restoration while the USB port allows users to swap or upgrade drives on the fly. At the same time, the device provides built-in security with user level and folder settings and username/password for HTML configuration utility.

The new device includes SyncQuick™ Back-Up software to back-up files. At the same time, SyncQuick NAS Manager automatically finds attached storage devices for easy configuration. It supports Auto IP/Fixed IP and Ethernet connections at speeds of 10/100 Mbps and 1 Gigabit.

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…
