GE Introduces The Latest Addition to Its PACE Pressure Instrumentation Platform

The PACE 1000 pressure indicator is the latest in the new generation of PACE high precision, modular pressure instrumentation for rack-mounting, test bench or bench top applications from the Sensing business of GE Measurement & Control solutions. It is available in three grades of precision performance and a choice of pressure ranges, pneumatic and hydraulic, and features internal data logging as standard. It will find application throughout the industrial, process and metrology sectors and an aeronautical option provides all pressure indications in aeronautical units.

As Mark Singleton, product manager for the new PACE 1000, explains, “This is an exciting addition to the PACE platform and establishes GE’s Sensing business as a leading player in the precision pressure indicator market. As well as being a versatile and flexible stand-alone solution, the PACE 1000 also integrates seamlessly with our recently launched 4Sight , web-based calibration and maintenance software to provide a fully automated and powerful workstation.”

The inherent precision and stability of the PACE 1000 is derived from the instrument’s incorporation of GE’s range of digitally-characterized, piezo-resistive and resonant pressure sensors. This has allowed three grades of accuracy, up to 0.005% of full-scale deflection, to be offered to suit specific requirements, while long term stability is up to 0.01% of reading over a year.  The instrument’s internal logging feature simplifies tasks such as sensor- and leak-testing and data is available through an on-screen display or can be downloaded to a PC.

Pressure ranges are available up to 1000bar (14500psi) gauge and absolute and up to three individual channels can be displayed on the instrument’s high resolution touch screen.  A touch screen and a high-resolution ¼ VGA display ensure that the PACE 1000 is extremely easy to operate and read.  A simple icon menu allows easy and intuitive set-up of controller parameters and connectivity is via RS232,  IEEE, Ethernet and USB providing for easy PC and peripherals connection, the use of set-up software and diagnostics downloads for technical support.  A wide range of options includes a leak test facility, a switch test capability for automating the testing of pressure switch devices, volt-free contacts for control of peripheral devices such as vacuum pumps and ovens and analog output to allow the instrument to interface with PC or PLC I/O cards,remote displays or other data logging equipment.

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 M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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.
