Hubbell Wiring Systems Introduces New NEC® Reference Guide

Hubbell Wiring Systems is pleased to announce a new National Electric Code (NEC®) 2011 Code Change Reference Guide for Healthcare and Hospitality. Commonly adopted by state or local law for the safe installation of electric wiring and equipment in the U.S., the NEC is updated every three years to enhance safety and accommodate advancements in technology. This new reference guide from Hubbell provides designers, specifiers, contractors and maintenance personnel with important information about recent code changes for wiring devices in healthcare and hospitality applications.

Hubbell’s comprehensive Code Change Reference Guide for Healthcare and Hospitality features detailed information about key NEC 2011 changes impacting the use of tamper-resistant receptacles, patient bed location receptacles and isolated ground receptacles. The guide features a detailed chart highlighting 16 code changes along with the code language, a clear code analysis using common technology, and applicable Hubbell code-compliant products.

“Working in conjunction with industry standards like NEMA and testing organizations like UL, the NEC helps ensure safe use of electricity and is relied upon by all designers, contractors and inspectors throughout the country,” says Bob Simon, marketing director for Hubbell. “The constant introduction of new products, technologies and research findings creates necessary revisions to the Code that can impact our customers and their healthcare and hospitality projects. At Hubbell, safety is our number one priority and we’re pleased to help our customers stay on top of the recent NEC changes impacting the use of wiring devices.”

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.
