AMETEK Adds Two New JOFRA® Temperature Calibrators

AMETEK Test & Calibration Instruments - the industry leader in advanced dry-block temperature calibrators - offers two new variants designed for applications that require either extreme cooling or high heat - the JOFRA® PTC-125 Cooler and RTC-159 Ultra Cooler calibrators. Both calibrators offer a host of innovative features, design improvements and a wide temperature range that makes them ideal for calibrating sensors used in health care, medical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and food processing applications.

The JOFRA PTC-125 is the latest addition to the JOFRA Professional Temperature Calibrator (PTC) Series. It offers a wide temperature range (-90oC to +125oC) and features an intuitive easy-to-use interface. The RTC-159 joins the JOFRA RTC (Reference Temperature Calibrator) Series and is AMETEK’s most advanced reference temperature calibrator with the widest available temperature range (-100oC to +155oC).

Both PTC and RTC Series calibrators incorporate a highly efficient, free-piston Stirling cooler and feature improved heating and cooling speeds. The RTC-159 offers the fastest calibration. Its patented cooling technology allows the calibrator to fast cool to -80oC in 65 minutes. The PTC-125 achieves that temperature in 75 minutes.

RTC and PTC Series calibrators have large diameter inserts designed to calibrate large-sized or multiple sensors at once. The compact, rugged calibrators are easy to carry, weighing only 15 kilograms, making them the lightest and most portable cooler and ultra cooler calibrators on the market.

The RTC-159 features AMETEK’s patent-pending Dynamic Load Compensation (DLC) system that provides perfect temperature uniformity in the insert no matter the number or size of the sensors immersed. Both of the calibrators also offer unique intelligent sensors for plug ‘n’ play fail safe connectivity, an easy-to-read full-color 5.7-inch VGA display, and a USB connection for improved communications and software downloads.

Both calibrators have a built-in reference sensor that offers high accuracy. However, users can obtain even better accuracies and realize the calibrator’s full potential by utilizing the STS (Superior Temperature Standard) reference sensor.

The STS-150 for PTC Series calibrators and the STS-200 for RTC Series calibrators contain all individual calibration data regarding the sensor, allowing users to change the reference sensor and be up and running immediately.

The STS-150 and 200 sensors have been angled 90 o and customized so the top of the sensor is only slightly higher than the top of the calibrator. This unique design makes it possible to calibrate threaded sensors and sensors with connection heads.

Both calibrators feature new multi-hole insert kits that cover most commonly known sensor sizes and a highly functional carrying case for improved portability and convenience. The specially designed carrying case makes it possible to store and protect DLC and reference sensors, inserts, support rods, wires, manuals, plugs and insert tools.

The JOFRA dry-block calibrators are part of a comprehensive line of pressure, temperature and signal calibrators and force-measurement test machines marketed by AMETEK Test & Calibration Instruments under the CHATILLON®, JOFRA®, LLOYD™, and MANSFIELD & GREEN™ brand names.

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.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications.
