Emerson Network Power Rugged Processing Blade Now Verified by Cisco for Secure Unified Communications in Federal and Defense Applications

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today announced that its rugged 3U CompactPCI processing blade is now verified by Cisco for secure unified communications solutions in federal and defense applications. The CPCI7203, running VMware virtualization software, has completed interoperability verification testing for the Cisco Unified Communications Manager, enabling a new generation of scalable and highly available collaborative communications platforms for government agencies and network-centric defense applications.

“Validation of the Emerson Network Power CPCI7203 processing blade will enable quicker and easier transition from legacy deployed PBX systems and simplify maintenance to help reduce total cost of ownership,” said Paul Virgo, marketing director for the Embedded Computing business of Emerson Network Power. “In today’s security-conscious environment, the ability to collaborate with encrypted communications is more important than ever. Emerson is pleased to expand its capabilities in this area and receive this affirmation from Cisco.”

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 8.6.1 is completing certification at the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), which allows it to operate on U.S. Department of Defense communications networks. It enables defense agencies to manage their communications quickly and conveniently in order to focus on mission-critical tasks.

The Emerson Network Power CPCI7203 single-board computer uses the Intel® Core™ i7 integrated dual-core processor in the 3U form factor for high performance applications in space-constrained applications. Emerson's leading edge thermal and rugged solution makes the CPCI7203 ideal for harsh environments. On-board memory includes up to 8GB soldered ECC DDR3 memory and the air cooled variants also support 256KB non-volatile memory and 4GB MicroSD flash. Conduction cooled variants offer a high density 1.8” SSD storage solution.

The Cisco Developer Network unites Cisco with third-party developers of hardware and software to deliver tested interoperable solutions to joint customers. As a Solution Developer, Emerson Network Power shares Cisco’s strong commitment to customer service and satisfaction, has completed interoperability verification testing based on criteria set forth by Cisco, and can provide their customers 24 hour, 7 days a week customer support. More information on Emerson Network Power interoperability with Cisco Unified Communications Manager can be found in the Cisco Technology Partner Catalog.

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…
