Air & Liquid-Tight Self-Sealing Washers For Metric Thread Sizes

APM HEXSEAL announced the expansion of their SEELOC® self-sealing, high-pressure washer line of available stock sizes, which will include the range of Metric sizes from M3 to M6. According to APM Director of Sales, John Arnold, “Six new popular metric sizes have been added as the foundation to satisfy the increasing international demand for this industrial-grade sealing washer line. We are experiencing a surge of metric size requirements from OEM’s who are building marine, medical, military, instrumentation and a broad range of electrical and enclosure equipment throughout the world”. Arnold added that “within this size range, the washer O.D. is 12.7mm to 25.4mm, and maximum thru-hole sizes are 6.35mm to15.87mm are being offered. Additional sizes are contemplated, based on demand”.

The SEEELOC® washer platform is built with 300 series stainless steel -- a uniquely profiled and ribbed silicone rubber section is molded onto one side (facing down) creating a high-pressure seal to 100psi. SEELOCs are rated to IP66/68 for Type 4X & Type 6 enclosure protection, and are resistant to salt water, acids, weather, sunlight, ozone and a myriad of harsh, hostile conditions. They can easily handle temperatures from-160°F to +500°F.

The APM self-sealing fastener line has been sold for more than 50 years under the following trademarks: SEELBOLT®, SEELSKREW®, SEELNUT®, SEELRIVET® and SEELOC®. APM fasteners are sold by leading electronics and industrial distributors throughout the United States, Canada and worldwide.

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.
