Signum Systems Announces Support for Piccolo™ MCUs

JTAGjet-C2000, the low-cost In-Circuit Debugger for the C2000 devices has been expanded to handle the new TMS320F2803x/2c Piccolo™ family of MCUs. It is fully compatible with the latest version of TI’s Code Composer Studio, which offers a C compiler, assembler, linker, flash programmer and a debugger, all under one, easy to use IDE.

Production flash programming may be accomplished with the optional Flasher-C2000 utility that offers one button, batch mode programming of one or more boards at the same time.

For debugging targets for high-current or high-voltage applications JTAGjet-C2000 may be ordered with a fully galvanically isolated JTAG probe to prevent equipment damage during debugging or production testing. The TMS320F2803x/2x Piccolo™ MCUs provide real-time control for greater energy efficiency to cost sensitive applications. The new F2803x/2x devices feature architectural advancements and enhanced peripherals in packages from 38-pins to bring the benefits of 32-bit real-time control to low-cost applications like solar inverters, white goods appliances, hybrid automotive batteries and LED lighting.

The JTAGjet-C2000 supports all devices in the C2000 family of MCUs. The emulator is entirely powered from the USB 2.0 port running at 480 Mbps and has auto-sensing voltage support.

The JTAGjet-C2000 emulator is available from stock and priced at $595. It is also available bundled with the Code Composer Studio C2000 version 3.3, offering a complete C2000 software development system for only $995.

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.

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’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…
