SANYO Announces New “eneloop” Rechargeable Batteries Pre-Charged and Ready for the Holiday Season

SANYO North America Corporation (SANYO) proudly announces the release of new AA- and AAA-size “eneloop” rechargeable batteries with approximately 500 more charges than previous eneloop batteries. The batteries are charged and ready to use and will maintain approximately 75% of their charge up to three years, a first in the industry. The new eneloop 1500-cycle batteries are available immediately at Costco Stores nationwide. The combo-pack containing the 4-position charger, eight (8) AA batteries and four (4) AAA batteries sells for $25.99 at Costco.

The eneloop batteries in the Costco combo-pack come in two shades of blue and two shades of green. The colors provide added convenience making it easy for consumers to “pair” the batteries in devices and in the charger.

“The Holidays are right around the corner and this is a great addition to power any gift that requires AA or AAA batteries,” said Tom Van Voy, VP and General Manager of SANYO Digital Solutions Division. “eneloop batteries are pre-charged which means they can be used right out of the package with new toys, gadgets, and other devices. The new eneloop batteries last even longer than before and can be recharged up to 1500 times which can save consumers hundreds of dollars on batteries over their lifetime.”
eneloop batteries were first announced about five years ago. During that time eneloop has become well known around the world, for its eco-friendly and economical properties. These batteries are pre-charged at the factory using solar energy, which begins the energy “looping” (eneloop) process.

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…
