Thermo Fisher Scientific Extends Industry-Leading FT-IR Platform with Launch of New-Generation Spectrometer at ACHEMA 2012

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE:TMO), the world leader in serving science, extended its leading FT-IR spectrometry platform by introducing the first research-grade FT-IR system designed for simple one-touch operation. The new Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS50 FT-IR spectrometer is one of several innovative products being introduced at ACHEMA to help customers increase laboratory efficiency in markets ranging from pharma and biotech, to chemical and petrochemical, to industrial and applied. These new offerings, along with the company’s comprehensive portfolio of chromatography, mass spectrometry, and environmental analysis technologies, are being showcased within Thermo Scientific booth B7, hall 4.2 at ACHEMA 2012, being held from June 18 - 22 in Frankfurt.

“In today’s economic environment, our customers need analytical tools that help them work much more efficiently, while improving the accuracy of their results,” said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher. “To meet this challenge, a key element of our innovation strategy is to strengthen our core technology platforms, and the new iS50 FT-IR spectrometer is another excellent example. This new product significantly enhances our industry-leading capabilities by providing our customers with a system that greatly simplifies FT-IR analysis to accelerate their results in research or process applications.”

The Nicolet iS™50 spectrometer builds on the company’s industry-leading Magna, Nexus and Nicolet 6700 spectrometry systems. It features purpose-built accessories and integrated software designed to provide all-in-one materials analysis that helps laboratories improve productivity by solving analytical challenges more quickly and easily. When equipped with optional modules, the iS50 system becomes a powerful materials analysis workhorse capable of extracting vast amounts of information from a wide range of samples.

Also during ACHEMA 2012, Thermo Fisher introduced its Thermo Scientific UltiMate 3000 XRS UHPLC system, setting a new standard of flexibility for the UltiMate 3000 UHPLC+ family. The UltiMate 3000 XRS™ leverages the company’s Dionex UHPLC product line to offer increased capabilities in solvent delivery and sample handling for high-throughput laboratories. The large portfolio of detector options further enhances this flexibility across a wide range of applications.

Thermo Fisher also showcased its new high-performance Thermo Scientific TSQ 8000 triple quadrupole GC-MS system, an easy-to-use instrument that enables greater analytical speed, precision and accuracy while saving time and reducing laboratory costs. The TSQ 8000™ is ideal for forensic toxicology and sports doping testing, as well as applied markets such as food and environmental analysis. For food and polymer laboratories, the new Thermo Scientific Process 11 twin-screw extruder is four to five times smaller than competing twin-screw extruders, requires less sample material and reduces analysis time.

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…
