Raytek Introduces New Infrared Thermometer for Industrial Applications and OEMs

Raytek®, a leading worldwide provider of infrared (IR) thermometry, has introduced the Raytek CM, a compact, integrated IR noncontact thermometer intended for continuous temperature monitoring in a wide range of industrial manufacturing processes and OEM applications. This rugged, NEMA-4 sealed, single-piece integrated sensor offers powerful features to handle nearly any temperature measurement requirement.

Although small in size, the Raytek CM outperforms competitive temperature measurement sensors at nearly twice the price. The sensor insures a consistent manufacturing process and allows tighter tolerances on heating processes, reducing heating costs while improving process throughput and product quality.

Designed for easy integration, the CM sensor can easily replace traditional contact probes with a J-type or K-type thermocouple output, or with a user-scaleable 0-5 volt output, if the application is susceptible to noise.

The Raytek CM includes precision, high-resolution silicon optics, providing excellent optical resolution at a very attractive price. An RS232 digital interface allows the user to configure all programmable sensor variables via the powerful Raytek DataTemp® Multidrop software. These include a 24 volt DC alarm output triggered by target temperature or head ambient temperature; peak hold, valley hold or variable averaging signal processing; adjustable target emissivity settings; and adjustable window transmissivity setting. A built-in sensor health LED provides a convenient on-line indicator of the sensor's operating status and aids in troubleshooting initial sensor set up.

The Raytek CM's remote configuration capability allows it to be configured for virtually any application, reducing installation and troubleshooting time, and streamlining data acquisition. This feature also eases troubleshooting when the sensor is located in a hostile or remote location.

The Raytek CM sensor is designed to measure target temperatures ranging from -20°C to 500°C (-4°F to 932°F). Its onboard electronics are protected by a rugged IP 65 (NEMA-4) stainless steel housing, allowing the sensor to function in ambient temperatures to 70°C (160°F) without cooling.

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. 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…
