CalAmp Announces Three New Wireless Devices for Mobile Resource Management

CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ : CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, announced today that it is introducing three new GPRS wireless communications products for Mobile Resource Management (MRM) applications at the CTIA Wireless Conference and Exhibition in New Orleans. These products enable CalAmp to meet international market requirements. These new products are designed to provide market-leading price and performance levels for customers in South Africa, South America and India addressing local fleet management, insurance, trailer tracking and stolen vehicle recovery verticals.

These new additions to CalAmp's MRM product portfolio include:
  • LMU-600 - inconspicuously installed, high value product targeted for the track-and-trace and stolen vehicle recovery markets. The LMU-600 comes equipped with a fixed harness, optional 200 mAh back up battery and up to 2 I/O ports.
  • LMU-1175 - moisture-resistant product for motorcycle, recreational vehicle and trailer tracking markets. The LMU-1175 comes equipped with a fixed harness, 1000 mAh back up battery, a built-in 16G accelerometer, 3 fixed biased I/O ports, and 1-wire bus.
  • LMU-2100 - inconspicuosly installed product for the fleet management and insurance market segment. The LMU-2200 comes equipped with a fixed harness, a built-in 16G accelerometer, multiplexed serial port and 3 I/O ports. This product comes equipped with the latest low power 16G force accelerometer capable of measuring hard braking, hard acceleration and collision events for driver behavior and safety applications.
CalAmp's new Location Messaging Unit (LMU) products provide global positioning satellite (GPS) tracking and cellular-based wireless communications capabilities for monitoring and tracking 12-volt and 24-volt vehicles. The new products are equipped with CalAmp's pioneering PEG™ (Programmable Event Generator) and PULS™ (Programming, Update and Logistics System), the company's industry-leading on-board alert engine and over-the-air device management and maintenance application, respectively. The new products also feature an integrated wireless antenna designed to deliver unrivaled performance and expand installation flexibility.

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.
