NKK ANNOUNCES TWO AND THREE POSITION PANEL MOUNT KEYLOCK SWITCHES FOR HIGH SECURITY APPLICATIONS

NKK Switches, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of innovative electromechanical switches, today announced the CKM Series of high security keylock switches for panel mount applications. Built for high security applications that require sophisticated design and reliability, the CKM series delivers the quality and dependability needed in such environments.

Featuring a highly secure five tumbler locking mechanism, CKM Series 16mm keylock switches are ideal for applications ranging from control and automation environments to computers and communication equipment to military and medical devices.

The high reliability of the CKM Series is due to sliding, silver contacts and a vertically rotating self-cleaning switching mechanism. These features ensure long operating life, smooth operation and highly reliable circuit contact.

CKM Series devices are standard size with 16mm double flatted bushings that sit securely in the panel. The interior construction has two sections, with the contact section sealed away from the key section to protect the contacts.

Keys are available in flat or tubular styles, with flat keys being reversible for easier setting. Keys are supplied with randomly assigned numbers. One key is provided with each switch and since there is no master, security is even further enhanced. Additional keys can be ordered by specifying the key number engraved on the switch.

Rated at 3A@250V AC, the CKM Series has the highest electrical rating of any NKK keylock device. They also have a high dielectric strength of 1,500 volts between contacts and case, which is guaranteed. These keylock switches are constructed of fiberglass reinforced PBT insulation material and can withstand 15 kilovolts of electrostatic discharge, designating them as antistatic devices.

The circuit configuration is SPDT with a choice of two or three key positions. Two position models feature a 90 degree angle of throw and three position models have a 45 degree angle of throw. Circuit options are ON-ON or ON-OFF-ON.

Engineers can also configure CKM Series with keys removable in one or two positions depending on circuit selection. ON-OFF-ON models with tubular keys also feature push-and-lock mechanisms.

Solder lug terminals are epoxy sealed to prevent the entry of flux and other contaminants. Wire assemblies are also available from NKK Switches upon request.

The operating temperature range for these devices is negative 25 degrees Celsius through positive 70 degrees Celsius. They can also withstand humidity at 90 to 95 percent for up to 240 hours at 40 degree Celsius.

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…
