Complete Cortex-M3/M4 Development Kit Bundles From Element14

The latest Keil™ ARM® Cortex™-M3-based MCBSTM32F200UME and ARM Cortex-M4-based MCBSTM32F400UME development bundles highlight the signal processing power of ST's latest series of powerful 32-bit MCUs and DSCs as well as the ease of programming and debugging with Keil's ULINK-ME debug adapter. The development bundles allow users to generate and test application programs for the STMicroelectronics STM32F207x series of MCUs and STM32F407x DSCs with the included MDK-ARM™ Lite edition.

Both boards are ideal for either consumer or industrial application development thanks to the inclusion of 2.4 inch color QVGA TFT LCD with resistive touch-screen. Users can also use the included sample code to test out the latest technologies including a 3-axis digital Accelerometer and digital Gyroscope as well a digital camera and microphone. Peripherals include USB 2.0 Full Speed and High Speed, USB-OTG, and USB Host as well as a 10/100 Ethernet port.

Complete details on the kits and development tools, including datasheets, manuals, technical information, BoM, ported RTOS downloads and instructional videos are available on The Knode on element14 - an intelligent online search and knowledge tool that helps engineers select the right solutions for their designs, right from the start.

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.

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’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…
