B&K Precision Introduces New 5 1/2-Digit True RMS Bench Multimeter

B&K Precision today introduced its new 5 1/2-digit bench digital multimeter (DMM), the model 5492B, expanding its present 4 1/2-digit (2831E) and 50,000-count (5491B) DMM offerings. Featuring a 120,000-count display resolution, the 5492B provides 0.01% basic VDC accuracy along with a broad range of functions, and is suitable for any application requiring accurate and reliable measurements, all at an affordable price.

The 5492B offers many essential measurements for benchtop testing: DC voltage and true RMS AC voltage; DC current and true RMS AC current; two- and four-wire resistance; continuity; diode test; frequency; and period. The DMM also includes a variety of built-in math functions such as Rel, Max/Min, dBm, dB, %, limits, and Mx+B.

Additionally, the 5492B is equipped with an internal buffer capable of storing up to 512 readings at a rate of up to 57 readings/s. Buffer storage operation and retrieval can be completed from the front panel or via remote command. The multimeter can also calculate statistical information from the buffer such as the minimum, maximum, or average reading, and standard deviation of the stored readings.

Advanced triggering options are provided on the front and rear panel, which enable users to manually trigger a measurement from a key press, send a bus trigger via remote control, or input an external trigger signal. A VM Comp (voltmeter complete) output terminal is accessible to indicate the completion of a measurement.

Programmable via SCPI commands, the 5492B comes standard with USB and RS232 interfaces, and offers a built-in GPIB interface option (model 5492BGPIB) for labs and system integrators. PC remote control software is provided for front panel emulation or simple measurement data logging functions.

Available immediately, B&K Precision's 5492B and 5492BGPIB are listed at a price of $649 and $789 respectively.

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 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.

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…
