Veeder-Root Vacuum Sensing System

A new sensor system is now available to operators of gasoline dispensing facilities to assist in their ongoing efforts to maintain regulatory compliance. Veeder-Root, a leading global supplier of automatic tank gauging and fuel management systems, has developed a Secondary Containment Vacuum Sensing (SCVS) system capable of detecting fuel leaks in double-walled tank, sump and piping systems.

"This system maintains a continuous vacuum in the space between the walls of double-walled tanks, sumps and piping," explains Andrew Wert, VP Marketing. "If a leak develops in the system resulting in a loss of vacuum, an alarm is generated by the Veeder-Root Tank Gauge alerting the site operator of a possible problem."

The system consists of vacuum sensors connected to the interstitial spaces between the walls of the tank, sump and piping system, a submersible turbine pump which provides the source of vacuum and a Smart Sensor Interface Module which connects the sensors to a TLS-350 Monitoring System. Through the TLS-350 the station operator can gain access to system status, leak test, alarm, and diagnostic information.

Designed for use with Veeder-Root automatic tank gauging systems, the SCVS system is part of a new series of innovative sensors Veeder-Root has developed to meet new and emerging regulatory standards.

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 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.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
