New 120V-AC LED Panel Indicator Generates Up to 70% Cost Savings & 50% Space Savings

Lumex announces the global launch of the QuasarBrite™ family of LED panel indicators with hundreds of standard technologies and expedited custom capabilities. The family features a 120V-AC LED that eliminates the need for AC to DC transformers thereby generating significant cost and space savings.

Lumex LED panel indicators have several important advantages over alternative technologies such as incandescent bulbs. They can last up to 10 times longer, use 90% less energy, are more durable, shock and temperature resistant, and provide quicker on/off performance.

Part of the QuasarBrite family of Panel Mount Indicators, the QuasarBrite 120V-AC LED eliminates the need for AC to DC power conversion as it operates with 120V-AC power that can be taken directly out of the main power source. Eliminating the need for an AC to DC power transformer can generate up to 50% savings in real estate space. This real estate and part savings, combined with LEDs longer lifespan and enhanced durability when compared to alternative technologies such as incandescent bulbs, can also lead to up to 70% cost savings.

The QuasarBrite 120V-AC LED is designed for optimal performance in a wide range of challenging environments including:
  • green energy technology (including monitors on solar panel and wind turbine equipment);
  • industrial control applications (including gas and liquid flow meters, thermal test chambers, and signaling devices.);
  • commercial appliance applications (including any indicators on appliances);
  • communications equipment (including network routers, switches and video servers).
The QuasarBrite 120V-AC LED is available in a round configuration with a 7mm diameter, however this configuration can also be customized with wire lengths ranging from 6 inches to 6 feet and with a variety of connector options with minimal tooling. Custom technologies are also available with quick turn around time and are very cost effective for mid- to large-quantity orders. Available in blue, white, red, yellow and green color varieties, the RoHs compliant QuasarBrite 120V-AC panel mount indicator LEDs are available from $2.50 per unit in production quantities with lead times ranging from eight to ten weeks for standard or custom technologies.

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…
