Agilent Technologies Colorado Springs Fire-Relief Efforts Reflect Long-Time Commitment to Community

When Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced that the Agilent Technologies Foundation was donating $100,000 to the American Red Cross to support fire-relief efforts in Colorado, the company underscored a long-time, ongoing commitment to Colorado, dating back to1959. That's when Hewlett-Packard, the company that would later spawn Agilent, selected Loveland, Colo., as its first U.S. location outside of the San Francisco Bay Area.

By 1962, HP had expanded into Colorado Springs, and the campus there is now home to Agilent's Oscilloscope Products Division as well as the company's Colorado Springs Technology Center. Nearly 500 employees and contractors work on site.

In addition to a variety of disaster-relief services and resources the company is offering to its employees in Colorado Springs, the Agilent community throughout the U.S. has rallied to the cause, with charity drives and collections of donated items useful to Colorado Springs employees affected by the fire.

"As we manage our way through this crisis, I am humbled by the strength and greatness of our communities within Agilent and Colorado Springs," said Jay Alexander, general manager of Agilent's Colorado Springs site. "We will get through this together and emerge stronger from it."

Adding to its donation, the Agilent Technologies Foundation will match employees' gifts up to $50,000.

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 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.
