Raytek XR Infrared Thermometer Optimizes Continuous Temperature Monitoring

Raytek, a leading worldwide provider of infrared thermometry, has introduced the Raytek XR infrared (IR) thermometer. Designed to optimize continuous temperature monitoring in a broad range of manufacturing processes, this advanced sensor is a rugged, NEMA 4 sealed
single-piece system with the flexibility to handle almost any application.

The Raytek XR infrared thermometer combines a host of best-in-class features, including multiple extended temperature ranges, precision temperature resolution, RS-485 outputs and a versatile electronics platform. Together, these features create a single IR sensor that outperforms other thermometers in challenging temperature measurement environments.

According to Frank Schneider, Raytek Worldwide Product Manager, the Raytek XR infrared thermometer improves the consistency of manufacturing operations, which can result in less product variation, improved product quality and increased throughput. He said, “The Raytek XR infrared thermometer delivers both performance and value for users with demanding temperature measurement requirements. This thermometer reduces energy costs by allowing tighter process control and more efficient process heating.”

The Raytek XR infrared thermometer sets a new standard for high-accuracy process temperature monitoring. The sensor provides a flexible, user-defined analog output that can be matched with almost any existing control system. This feature also eliminates the need for expensive A/D conversion or non-standard A/D input cards. An intuitive local user interface simplifies system setup and configuration, and adds powerful troubleshooting capabilities.

The Raytek XR Infrared Thermometers, with multiple measurement ranges, utilize identical, configurable installation hardware and application software. This approach reduces installation time, training and documentation requirements, and spare parts costs. Users have the freedom to choose the easiest or best means of wiring the sensor for a given application. In addition, standard RS485 communications enables remote configuration—streamlining troubleshooting and data acquisition. Field calibration software allows for on-site calibration of sensors, reducing service time and expense.

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 E

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 p

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.
