RITA-A - Asymmetric Reflector Family Concentrates Light Precisely Where Needed

LEDiL announces its latest product addition, the RITA-A reflector family, incorporating a unique optical design that further extends LEDiL’s asymmetric secondary optic expertise for lighting class LEDs. Currently qualified LEDs include Cree’s XLamp® LEDs and Philips Lumileds LUXEON® Rebel and LUXEON® M LEDs. The offset design of this 17.1mm tall reflector (17.3mm height with optional pre-installed mounting tape) neatly projects a rectangular beam of energy-efficient LED light with peak intensity in a forward offset 80⁰ from the solid-state light source. The 28.4mm x 36mm reflector cup is mounted to a 22mm base.

LEDiL’s designers envision indoor use of RITA-A mounted to provide task and application lighting, as well as hallway or accent lighting. Lighting of conference room tables and workspaces is also possible with RITA-A. Works of art or museum pieces are easily illuminated without the need to tilt the lamp body and the reflector is easily rotated to provide extra accent where needed. RITA-A can be mounted side-by-side to evenly illuminate long walls with minimal hot-spots or shadowing. Outdoor applications include residential lamps used in urban areas or for lighting stairwells in parking garages.

Reflectors, by nature, are more lightweight than similarly-sized TIR lenses and, since RITA-A is molded in impact resistant polycarbonate, the product is rated for use up to 115⁰ C and meets UL 94 V-2 flammability rating. RITA-A does not require metallization to achieve high light transmission efficiency and the design enhances thermal flow within the fixture to help regulate thermal efficiency of the lighting system. The adapter base contains integrally molded location pins that locate RITA-A precisely over the LED. Attachment is achieved through the use of an approved secondary adhesive, or with optionally installed mounting tape.

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…
