LTA/LTB Submersible Level Transducers

Measurement Specialties, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEAS) has just released its new LTA/LTB  submersible level transducers for production that are specifically designed to meet the rigorous environments encountered in liquid level measurement and control.

These transducers are ideal for pump control applications such as lift station monitoring, tank liquid level, landfill leachate monitoring, construction bypass pumping and dewatering.

The LTA features a 1.0” body with a ported nose cap design that protects the stainless steel diaphragm from damage. The LTB features a wide mouth non-fouling protective cage that protects the 2.75” TFMR PTFE flexible diaphragm. Both models have a static accuracy of ±0.25% FSO over an operating range of -20oC to +60oC (-4oF to 140oF).

These transducers utilize a highly accurate pressure sensor assembly specifically designed for hostile fluids. The assembly is integrated with supporting electronics in a durable waterproof housing constructed of 316 stainless steel. Four standard pre-calibrated pressure ranges are available: 0 - 5psi, 0 - 15psi, 0 - 30psi and 0 - 50psi with a choice of a vented or sealed gage pressure reference. The polyurethane electrical cable is attached with an over-molding process that prevents moisture intrusion for reliable long life and is custom-manufactured and available in custom lengths.

The LTA/LTB is CE-compliant to EN61326-1:2001 and EN61326-3:2006, has an IP68 and a NEMA 6P housing protection rating. Optional UL and FM certification for Class I – III, Division 1 and Group A – G locations is also available.

Measurement Specialties acquired Pressure Systems, Inc. (“PSI”) in September 2010. Measurement Specialties will continue to develop, manufacture and service the highly accurate level measuring instruments that Pressure Systems is renowned for in the environmental and municipal markets.

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.

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…
