Anderson Power Products (APP), a leader in the design and manufacture of interconnect solutions, announces a new addition to its family of SB products with the release of the CR-SB (Chemical Resistant) SB product line. The new chemical resistant (CR) SB line of connectors was developed for customers whose applications require robust connector solutions that provide improved resistance to environmental factors that commonly degrade standard products leading to eventual failure. The new housing material offers improved resistance to hydrocarbons and solvents as well as an extended temperature range. The CR-SB connectors are ideal for a variety of industries that includes Automotive, Industrial, and Personal Mobility. In addition, these new housings offer all the benefits of the industry standard SB products including color and mechanical coding, hot plug capability, and genderless design.

The CR-SB Connectors are fully intermateable and interchangeable with the standard SB connectors and accept the same range of contacts. CR-SB Connectors are available from 50 to 350 amps and are rated at 600V AC or DC operation with connection under load capability up to 100 amps. As with our standard SB line, the housings are keyed to ensure that only connectors of the same color will mate.* In order to distinguish the CR-SB Connectors from the Standard SB Connectors, there is a “P” molded on the back side of the housing.

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.

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…
