SANYO ‘eneloop Pedal Juice’ is Back in Black at NAMM 2011

SANYO North America Corporation (SANYO) introduces a black version of its eneloop Pedal Juice, a rechargeable DC 9V battery unit for effects pedals and other music devices. The popular Pedal Juice rechargeable battery, introduced last year, is available immediately at music stores nationwide and the black version will be available in late spring 2011. Both versions have an MSRP of $199.99. The black and the white Pedal Juice will be displayed at the NAMM Show 2011, the world’s largest musical instrument trade show, from January 13 to 16, 2011 in Booth 7013.

Pedal Juice was developed to meet the needs of both professional and entry-level musicians, delivering up to 50 hours of continuous power for a single analog pedal or up to 20 hours of continuous power to three digital pedals.  Because the eneloop 9V rechargeable lithium-ion battery eliminates the need for AC power, the output voltage is more stable for longer periods of time without the possibility of AC ground looping noise. The battery can be recharged hundreds of times, thereby eliminating the waste and inconvenience of disposable 9V alkaline batteries. With two DC outputs, Pedal Juice can power multiple devices including pedals, multi-effect units, and portable recorders. Pedal Juice provides portable battery power to a single pedal or can be used to power several pedals at the same time. 

Power management ranks at the top of issues faced by music performers, especially performances that use many portable music devices, including effects units, amps, graphic equalizers, and multi-track recorders, where power is typically provided through an AC adapter or a 9V dry cell battery (9V laminated battery).  Rechargeable, portable, water-resistant, and rugged, Pedal Juice allows the freedom to play whenever and wherever the next gig might be.

“SANYO’s Pedal Juice provides clean, portable 9V power to effects pedals and other music devices.  We designed the new model with the same great performance musicians have come to expect from SANYO,” said Tom Van Voy, General Manager of the Digital Solutions Division for SANYO North America.  “Our new black-colored Pedal Juice will allow the musicians to decide which color best fits their rig.”

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…
