Honeywell to Automate Petrocity’s Greenfield Konza Terminal to Help Maintain Safe, Efficient Fuel Supply in Kenya

Honeywell won a $2.4M project to deliver a full automation solution for Petrocity’s Greenfield Konza terminal storage facility 60 km southeast of Nairobi, Kenya. The project includes comprehensive solutions for the pipeline receipt system, tank farm, truck loading system, and terminal automation, through Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) and Terminal Manager. It also includes all industrial security, emergency shutdown (ESD) and fire & gas (F&G) systems.

The new terminal facility is situated on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway and will cater to Nairobi's growing demand for fuel, which accounts for more than 50 percent of the country's oil consumption. It will have a capacity to handle 120 million litres of gasoline, diesel and kerosene — enough stock to fuel Nairobi for up to two months — with infrastructure for product receipt, storage and distribution. Equipped with high-accuracy measurement instruments and approved for custody transfer applications, the Petrocity project will also increase availability of petroleum products to new entrants and independent dealers in Kenya who have limited access to truck loading facilities in the area.

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 E

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 p

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.
