Updated Eaton Intelligent Power Manager VMware Ready, Enhances Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity for VMware Users

Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced the latest version of its Intelligent Power Manager™ software with new capabilities designed to enhance disaster data recovery and planned migration within VMware® vCenter™ Site Recovery Manager. The update is designed to provide automatic virtual machine synchronization and initiation of a backup site, also known as recovery failover, to avoid data loss and reduce downtime during power outages when shutting down servers is unavoidable. Eaton is the first power management company to offer these capabilities within the VMware platform and to achieve VMware Ready™ certification.

The Intelligent Power Manager software achievement of VMware Ready™ certification, VMware’s highest level of endorsement, followed a detailed validation process. The software can be found on the VMware Solution Exchange, a single destination site for compatible VMware applications and cloud infrastructure products.

“Eaton Intelligent Power Manager software’s VMware Ready™ qualification signifies to customers that it has met specific VMware integration and interoperability standards and works effectively with VMware cloud infrastructure, which will speed time to value within customer environments.” said Sheryl Sage, director, Alliance Programs, VMware.

“Keeping critical workloads operational and preventing data corruption are a data center’s top priorities during power outages,” said Hervé Tardy, vice president and general manager, Eaton Distributed Power Quality Division. “Eaton’s extensive and integrated power management capabilities with VMware’s vCenter platform have enabled us to usher in a new era of control software, mission critical data preservation and integrity, and business continuity.”

Traditionally, when a virtualized data center loses power, technicians must manually initiate the recovery process in a specific sequence, often in the face of intense time pressure. Eaton’s latest version of Intelligent Power Manager software increases productivity and response time by identifying the power failure immediately, initiating a backup site, and triggering VMware Site Recovery Manager’s disaster recovery failover and planned migration processes.

The VMware Site Recovery Manager capability improves upon Intelligent Power Manager’s existing VMware integration, which enables IT personnel to view, monitor and administer not only physical and virtual servers, but also uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), power distribution units (PDUs) and other power devices, through VMware’s vCenter Server platform.

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.
