Simpson Strong-Tie Sponsors Building Safety Month in May

Simpson Strong-Tie is proud to announce its sponsorship of the International Code Council Foundation's (ICCF) 2012 Building Safety Month. Simpson Strong-Tie is supporting Building Safety Month as a gold-level sponsor and is encouraging the industry to join the "I Support" campaign.

Building Safety Month is a public awareness campaign offered each year during May to help individuals, families and businesses understand what it takes to create and sustain safe and sustainable structures. The four-week campaign focuses on key safety areas each week, including energy and green building, disaster safety and mitigation, fire safety and awareness, and backyard safety. The overall goal is to reinforce the need for adopting modern, model building codes as well as implementing strong and efficient code enforcement. HGTV star and construction safety advocate Mike Holmes is this year's honorary ambassador of Building Safety Month and is hosting a Q&A session on his website on Wednesday, May 9.

"Simpson Strong-Tie is focused on creating structural products that help people build safer, stronger homes and buildings, so our support of Building Safety Month is really an extension of our work," said Terry Kingsfather, president of Simpson Strong-Tie. "We're proud to support the ICCF in raising awareness about the importance of safe, well-built structures through Building Safety Month."

As a sponsor, Simpson Strong-Tie has several resources that help support the initiatives of Building Safety Month, including educational materials about designing and building homes and buildings to resist earthquakes and high winds as well as building and retrofitting outdoor decks safely.

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.
