86A Absolute and U86B Media Isolated Analog Pressure Sensor Modules

Measurement Specialties, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEAS) has just released to production its new urea dosing U86B media isolated analog pressure sensor module, as well as added an “Absolute” pressure type for its existing model 86A. These amplified, ASIC calibrated sensors were designed to be mountable with o-ring seals for high performance, low pressure applications. These sensors utilize silicone oil to transfer pressure from its 316L stainless steel diaphragm to its sensing element.

The U86B is MEAS’ first urea dosing backside pressure sensor and can be used to measure urea level, urea pressure, air brakes and corrosive fluid measurement for engine and vehicle applications. With a pressure range of 0 - 300psi and an operating temperature range of -7°C to +105°C, the U86B features a ±2.0 Total Error Band (over a compensated temperature range of -7°C to +105°C) and is CE approved as well as being manufactured to TS16949 standards. It comes with an optional cable length if desired.

The 86A is designed for applications such as: level controls, tank level measurement, OEM equipment, corrosive fluids and gas measurement systems, sealed systems, manifold pressure measurement, barometric pressure measurement and submersible depth monitoring. Its gage type reference has a pressure range of 0 – 150psi while its absolute type reference ranges from 15 - 150psi. Operating from -40°C to +125°C, it has a ±0.25% pressure non-linearity and features up to a ±3.0% Total Error Band (over a compensated temperature range of 0 to 105°C).

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…
