New G9SX-SM Safety Monitoring Unit Provides Sensor-less Machine Standstill Monitoring

Omron Scientific Technologies, Inc. introduces the G9SX-SM Standstill Safety- Monitoring Unit. The G9SX-SM monitors standstill status for machines with varied hazardous part stop times, with no sensors required. The system can operate out of the box without any need for sensitivity adjustments, or users can manually adjust system sensitivity to the specific needs of each machine. Additionally, it can be used with inverter-controlled systems without any threat of malfunction due to the inverter's dynamic brake or auto-tuning functions.

When a hazard does not stop immediately it is necessary to prevent access to the hazardous area until the motion has stopped. The G9SX-SM improves productivity by minimizing the delay time caused by such hazards by sensing the stop motion instead of waiting for a count down timer to expire.

The G9SX-SM detects back electromagnetic force (BEMF) that is generated when the motor rotates to determine whether the motor is rotating or in standstill condition. It determines that the motor has stopped when it detects that the BEMF falls below a set criterion. The system operates on 24 VDC, but can monitor motors up to 480VAC. It provides 3 safety standstill detection outputs and 2 auxiliary outputs, and is available with spring-cage or screw terminal blocks. Detailed LED indicators enable easy fault diagnosis.

Standstill and low-speed monitoring is required by international standards for machine tools, printing presses and other applications. The G9SX-SM is certified to all relevant North American and International safety standards, meets Safety Category 4 (EN954-1) requirements, and is engineered to deliver reliable standstill operation in these applications.

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.

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.
