Leaving a lasting impression - Ranga Yogeshwar at "Every day is a GreenDay"

"Progress happens. Progress surprises. What is important is that progress is sustainable," reported Ranga Yogeshwar during a visit to the fan specialist ebm-papst. In the eyes of Yogeshwar, one of Germany's most respected economic journalists, society has to distance itself from its every growing need for energy and resources. What is far more important is that progress is compatible with our blue planet, explains Yogeshwar.

The evening event with the presentation by Ranga Yogeshwar was a highlight of the ebm-papst campaign week "Every Day is a GreenDay" in Mulfingen. The campaign, which was initiated by trainees from the company, started on 16 April 2012 with the visit of the Baden-W├╝rttemberg Minister of the Environment Franz Untersteller.

Following the presentation by Ranga Yogeshwar, more than 350 employee and invited guests at the Stauseehalle intensely followed the podium discussion "Ecology - a driver of growth?". Moderated by Dr. Marc Beise of the S├╝ddeutsche Zeitung, Ranga Yogeshwar, Christopher Boyd of the European Commission, climate researcher Prof. Dr. Hans von Storch and Rezzo Schlauch, retired Parliamentary Secretary of State held a controversial and informative debate on the need for innovation, the importance of green technology and developments in European environmental policies.

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 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.
