Get Your MITs on Megger’s Tough New Insulation Testers!

Capable of providing accurate measurements up to 10 TΩ for 5 kV versions and 20 TΩ for 10 kV versions and having facilities for IR, IR(t), PI, DAR, DD, SV and ramp tests, Megger’s new high-voltage insulation resistance testers (IRTs) offer exceptional versatility in a compact, rugged and light unit that weighs little more than half as much as its predecessors.
  • Small, light and sophisticated
  • PI, DAR, DD, SV and ramp test
  • Improved productivity – operate from line power/mains if battery dead
  • Li ion battery - extended capacity, rapid charge
  • Advanced memory with time/date stamp
  • CATIV 600 V safety rating
Improved productivity

The new instruments also provide enhanced productivity – they can be used from an AC source even when their internal rechargeable battery is fully discharged – and they are capable of delivering dependable results even in noisy electrical environments, such as electricity substations, with noise levels up to 3 mA.

Three new testers

Megger’s new IRTs are available in three versions. The MIT515 5 kV insulation resistance tester is an entry-level 5 kV test set which offers insulation resistance (IR), timed insulation resistance (IR(t)), dielectric absorption ratio (DAR) and polarisation index (PI) test modes.

The MIT525 5 kV insulation resistance tester, which is also a 5 kV unit, adds facilities for dielectric discharge (DD), step voltage (SV) and ramp diagnostic testing, as well as a large-capacity internal memory for storing time and date stamped test results, which can subsequently recalled to the display or downloaded to a PC via the instrument’s electrically isolated USB interface. Real-time output of results during tests is also supported. The MIT1025 10 kV insulation resistance tester offers the same facilities as the MIT525, but is a 10 kV unit.

The MIT515 and MIT525 allow tests to be carried out at five pre-defined voltages from 250 V to 5 kV, while the MIT1025 provides pre-defined test voltages from 500 V to 10 kV. All models allow an additional user-defined ‘lock’ voltage to be set, a specific voltage range to facilitate repetitive measurements to guard against excessive test voltages being applied to sensitive equipment.

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…
