Danaher Specialty Products Supports Pinwheels for Prevention

Danaher Specialty Products (DSP) employees have shown a strong desire to help their communities, and DSP supports their efforts in a variety of ways. In 2012 DSP launched its Employee Volunteer Program (EVP), and the first event is a smashing success! Together, the EVP has donated over 50 hours, $416.50 to Bladen County’s Child Abuse Awareness Day on April 21, 2012, and planted 224 pinwheels in our garden.

In recognition of April being Child Abuse Prevention Month, DSP employees rallied behind Pinwheels for Prevention as they planted a Pinwheel Garden on the front lawn on April 10, 2012. During this month, especially, communities nationwide recognize that we all play a role in healthy child development and the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Pinwheels, the centerpiece of the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign, are again popping up in front yards, at community events and in front of City Halls as the country takes a moment during April to recognize Child Abuse Prevention Month (CAP).

The pinwheel represents Prevent Child Abuse America’s efforts to change the way our nation thinks about abuse prevention, as well as focusing on community activities and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur.

Nearly 900,000 pinwheels have been displayed since April 2008. Join DSP by bringing Pinwheels for Prevention to your organization and community!

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.
