Wamco Further Expands its NVIS LED Product Line

Wamco is expanding its NVIS compatible LED product line. Based on Wamco’s patent pending technology, the µNVISable product meets market demands for manufacturing and design. The need for fewer components, integrated technology, reduced labor content and increased first time yield remain constant objectives for high technology firms embracing lean manufacturing.

The new µNVISable product relies on proven NVISable materials and technology, which provide unsurpassed reliability for accurate chromaticities and controlled infrared content. With a smaller footprint and a reduction in height, the µNVISable product allows designers to bring integrated light sources into limited spaces and very thin cross sections. This eliminates the need for complex light guides and other optical artifacts typically required to satisfy mechanical design constraints.

Wamco has specifically designed the photochemistry to satisfy optical requirements as defined in MIL-STD-3009 with low levels of infrared energy. Product variations of commonly used colors are available: Green A, Green B, yellow, red and white. Wamco can also tailor the molecular composition to achieve any specific emission spectrum that might be required to compensate for undesired optical alteration.

Just like the other products in the NVISable LED series, this new product does not require any external filtering design. The desired light characteristics are obtained directly from the LED.

Wamco has been integrating µNVISable white LEDs in ruggedized AMLCD modules as an integrated backlighting solution that combines high efficiency LEDs, µNVISable LEDs, passive heatsinking elements, EMI optical elements, high efficiency heaters and driving electronics. This LED is now available as a single component to the market.

Wamco understands light behavior at the quantum level. With its expertise in material science and an in depth understanding of optics, Wamco has become the leader in the aerospace and defense industry. Wamco has mastered precise energy management technologies in a broad range of UV, visible, NIR and infrared applications.

Established in 1968, Wamco, based in California, is a privately owned company that has grown to become a trusted, leading provider of lighting solutions to the aerospace, automotive and medical markets worldwide.

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…
