Fluke Biomedical Makes Charitable Donation in Support of Seattle Anesthesia Outreach Mission to Ethiopia

Fluke Biomedical recognized today the work of Seattle Anesthesia Outreach (SAO) with the donation of several instruments for use in an upcoming mission to Black Lion Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. SAO is an independent, all-volunteer, nonsectarian charitable organization that was formed by a group of physicians, nurses, medical technicians, translators, and other support personnel to provide operative services to the poor and medically underserved throughout the U.S. and developing world.

Globally recognized as the most trusted name in medical device quality assurance and safety, Fluke Biomedical products ensure quality, reliability and accuracy of medical instruments throughout a hospital facility. Fluke Biomedical’s contribution to this mission was:
  •     BP Pump 2L Non-Invasive Blood Pressure Analyzer
  •     RF303RS Electrosurgical Analyzer
  •     ESA612 Electrical Safety Analyzer (which provides the benefits of a patient simulator, multimeter and electrical-safety analyzer in a single test tool)
  •     Several simulators for patient monitor safety and quality assurance testing, including one MPS450 Patient Simulator (with cardiac output and fetal/maternal simulation) and one medSim 300B Patient Simulator
SAO is currently focused on establishing a long-term relationship with the Black Lion Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Teaching will be at the core of the Ethiopia mission. SAO volunteers will also be upgrading equipment, and assisting in the creation of a system for operating room and recovery room management.

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…

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. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…


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.
