NEW! DL-030 Microprocessor Design Trainer

Whether you’re new to designing with FPGA, need to train others about FPGA, or new to implementing microcontrollers in FPGAs, the Model DL-030 FPGA-based Microprocessor Design Trainer will accelerate your design process.

Featuring an Altera Cyclone® III FPGA, the DL-030 not only integrates seamlessly into both the Quartus® II FPGA design framework and the Nios® II GNU-based development environment, but it is advanced enough to design and prototype complex embedded systems on the FPGA. The DL-030 is a complete and ruggedly packed trainer that will provide a solid learning platform to individuals and classroom students. Create and implement your first design in as little as one hour.

DL-030 FPGA-based Microprocessor Design Trainer features:

• Student Trainer Lab Manual and Experiments

• Altera Cyclone® III EP3C16F256C8N FPGA

• Three push button switches

• 16red user LEDs

• Three 7-segment LED displays

• 16 toggle switches

• 8-pin general purpose I/O header

• Vcc and GND connection points

• 270-tip point breadboard

• USB connector for connecting the DL-030 trainer to the development computer.

One of the most important features included with the DL-030 is the high quality Student Trainer Lab Manual and Experiments. The manual, written by Enoch Hwang, Ph.D., author of Digital Logic and Microprocessor Design with VHDL, features 137 pages of introductory theory along with 11 highly structured experiments to validateideas learned using the trainer.

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…
