New 18" Deep Pick Rack: Exclusively from Akro-Mils

Akro-Mils, a North American leader in storage, organization and transport products, announces new 18" Deep Pick Racks that provide additional options in rack and bin systems. These systems, which feature angled shelves for easy access and visibility of parts and supplies, are ideal for 5S Lean and other productivity initiatives. The first and only 18" pick racks in the industry, these new racks provide up to 50 percent more storage capacity than 12" deep pick racks.

The new systems, which include Single-Sided, Double-Sided and Mobile options, continue Akro-Mils’ tradition of providing heavy-duty pick racks constructed of 16-gauge steel that offer convenient, high-density storage. The 18" Deep Pick Racks have a weight capacity of more than 100 lbs. per shelf when secured to a wall or floor. The single-sided rack has a total capacity of 900 lbs. and the double-sided rack has an 1,800-lb. capacity. The double-sided rack, when used with the optional heavy-duty Mobile Kit, also has an 1,800-lb. weight capacity.

Akro-Mils 18" Deep Pick Racks are available separately or packaged with industry-leading Shelf Bins, and innovative new products such as ShelfMax® 6" High Bins, Indicator® Two-Toned Bins, AkroDrawers® and System Bins™. Akro-Mils pick racks improve workspace organization and efficiency in a variety of settings — from industrial to healthcare.

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…
