MMG7 Sensor with 'Thin Glass' Measurement Spectrum

Raytek adds a model for use in the production of thin glass to its Marathon pyrometer series. The new MMG7 sensor measures infrared radiation at a wavelength of 7.9 ┬Ám. The technology leader in the field of infrared temperature measurement has precisely adjusted the measurement spectrum to the reflecting medium and to the 300 to 900 °C measured temperature range. At shorter wavelengths, background radiation could distort the results, while surface reflection is too strong in the longer-wave area. The point sensor has an outstanding 100:1resolution, and achieves a precision of ± 1 % and a repeatability of ± 0.5 % or ± 0.5 °C. With a response time of just 120 ms, the device delivers reliable data even in very fast processes.

For technological reasons, Raytek follows a policy of diversification. The company does not produce universal sensors but solutions tailored to specific conditions of use. The Marathon series covers a temperature range from -40 °C to +2,250 °C. The series satisfies the most exacting requirements in terms of precision, reliability, flexibility, and ruggedness. The smallest measurement spot size is 1.1 mm. All Marathon pyrometers become operational extremely quickly: the shortest response time is 20 ms. The measuring devices feature simultaneous analog and digital outputs. They can be integrated into automation networks via an RS485 interface. The devices are equipped with a through-the-lens sight and optionally with video or laser sighting. Accessories for the IP65 instruments include an air-purge unit or a ThermoJacket protective casing with integrated air-purge unit and cooling for use in ambient temperatures of up to 315 °C.

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.

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…
