Wamco Increases Focus by Offering its LCD Capabilities to the Industry Under a Distinct Business Unit

Wamco is pleased to reveal its plan to increase focus on its LCD product line under a new business unit. This decision has led to the launch of Wamco Displays, which will be solely dedicated to serving new and existing customers that require high reliability ruggedized AMLCD modules, using standard or custom LCD cells. Historically, such activities were managed within the Optical Products business unit. In fact, Wamco has already been engaged in servicing aerospace and ground military applications by supplying custom and standard LCD modules that integrated customized optical components such as optical filters, EMI and heater glass, and custom backlights. Customer demands have continuously increased for high reliability, high value AMLCD modules for niche applications, which is what ultimately led to the development of Wamco Displays.

As a result of this change, the expertise developed over the years, and born from an in-depth knowledge of AMLCD applications, will now be promoted under the Wamco Displays brand. This will leverage Wamco’s material science capabilities in designing and manufacturing optical elements for AMLCD, Wamco’s proven expertise in optical bonding, and Wamco’s unique relationship in Asia.

In order to support this organizational restructuring, Wamco has proudly appointed Jim Kennedy as Director of Wamco Displays. Jim has been involved in the LCD industry since 1989. Over the years, he has developed a broad understanding of all facets of the industry from supply chain dynamics, design strategies, manufacturing, and market landscape. Prior to joining Wamco, Jim was President of TrueVision Displays and AZ Displays. He first started his career at All American after which he became a key contributor at Vertex Display. We invite you to engage Jim with any AMLCD challenges you might have.

Wamco understands light behavior at the quantum level. With its expertise in material science and in-depth understanding of optics, Wamco has become a 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.

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…
