Datapaq® Introduces Q18 Radio Telemetry System

Datapaq introduces a radio telemetry system that provides live temperature data transmission from inside industrial heating or cooling processes in all kinds of industries; from batch cooking/ freezing in the food processing industry, to vacuum furnace surveying in the aerospace industry, to long duration firing processes in the ceramics industry with extremely high temperatures. Designed for use with the Datapaq Q18 line of data loggers, the system is comprised of transmitters for installation inside the data logger, primary and secondary receivers, and Datapaq Insight™ analysis software.

Q18 data loggers measure temperatures between -200 °C (-328 °F) and 1,370 °C (2,498 °F). These versatile units combine fast readings, a superb ±0.5 ºC (±0.9 ºF) accuracy, and a high resolution of 0.1°C (±0.18 ºF). A large internal memory allows for the logging of up to 50,000 readings per channel ensuring no data is ever lost.

With six different logger sizes and channel configurations of six, ten, or twelve, the Q18 series enables optimum solutions for every need. The telemetry system utilizes the latest radio-frequency technology for real-time transmission of product and process temperature data. Up to six dataloggers can simultaneously connect to one receiver providing the ability to measure from up to 72 thermocouples. The system enables continuous temperature monitoring and analysis.

Process parameters can be adjusted almost instantaneously to ensure high product quality, reduce scrap, and save energy. The number and position of the receivers can be easily optimized to ensure best data reception from within the harshest of industrial environments. Automatic frequency selection, multiple data transmission, and transmitter internal temperature compensation eliminate interference problems and ensure data integrity. The radio telemetry system operates on license-exempt frequencies and is fully tested and approved for use in Europe and the USA.

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.
