SANYO Portable Power Supply ‘eneloop mobile booster’ Charges on the Go

SANYO North America Corporation (SANYO), the world’s largest manufacturer of rechargeable batteries, introduces the KBC-L2 rechargeable battery pack “eneloop mobile booster,” which provides instant back-up power for mobile phones, smart phones, portable music devices and other USB powered devices. The KBC-L2 joins the ‘eneloop universe’, a group of products based on recycling or ‘looping’ energy. The eneloop mobile booster is available immediately at an MSRP of $79.99.

“We’ve all become accustomed to carrying some sort of mobile device with us whether it’s a tablet, smart phone, or a music device. Now we can use them more confidently knowing we have portable, convenient power for those devices,” said Tom Van Voy, General Manager of the Digital Solutions Division for SANYO North America.  “The SANYO mobile booster is easy to use and it’s portable enough to take with you anywhere.”

With two USB outputs, the KBC-L2 allows two USB devices to be powered at the same time. The SANYO mobile booster not only charges USB devices, it acts as auxiliary power if the battery in the device has completely drained. On a full charge, the L2 provides 5000mAh of power.

The KBC-L2 is based on SANYO’s Lithium-ion battery technology. It can be charged using either the bundled AC power adapter or the USB power cable by connecting it to a PC. A mini-USB to micro-USB adapter is also included to ensure compatibility with a wide range of portable devices. The mobile booster can be completely charged in 7 hours from AC power and 14 hours from USB power.

The eneloop mobile booster is designed to be compatible with current configurations of numerous products, including the iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G, iPhone, iPod Touch (1st‐4th gen), iPod Classic, iPod nano (1st‐6th gen), iPod mini (1st and 2nd gen), iPod (4th and 5th gen), RIM Blackberry Bold, and RIM Blackberry Curve.  The L2 provides 5V 500mA output power for charging two devices or 1000mA output power for charging one device. The KBC‐L2 will even provide a partial recharge for an iPad or other compatible eReader. To activate the USB output function, the user simply needs to press and hold the DC Out button. The blue power indicator light will stay on for one second signifying that the USB ports are active. The KBC‐L2 provides the equivalent power of multiple batteries.

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…
