Fujitsu Expands Lineup of Contactless Palm Vein Authentication Devices

Fujitsu and Fujitsu Frontech Limited today announced the development of PalmSecure-SL, the world's smallest and slimmest(1) contactless palm vein authentication sensor. A standard portable version and integrated mouse version of the sensor will be available beginning today.

The new authentication device maintains the same high level of authentication as Fujitsu's existing PC login sensor technology(2) while also featuring a compact package that is approximately one-fourth the volume. At the same time, the new device incorporates camera stabilization and guideless authentication functionality, as well as a power-saving mode. Apart from enabling the effective utilization of desk space, these features allow the technology to be effortlessly operated even in mobile applications.

In recent years, the need for enhanced security in the corporate environment has become increasingly important. In addition, ease of use and space efficiency are becoming high-priority requirements for customers.

Fujitsu's new PalmSecure-SL sensor, which provides one-to-one matching authentication, has achieved the world's smallest and slimmest design for a palm vein authentication sensor. Thanks to the device's enhanced convenience, it can easily be employed even in environments such as mobile applications.

Fujitsu and Fujitsu Frontech began global sales of contact-free palm vein authentication devices starting in 2005, and so far these systems have been utilized in a variety of applications, including ATMs and security access control. With the addition of the PalmSecure-SL sensor to its lineup of PC Login sensors, Fujitsu aims to support customers in implementing enhanced PC security measures.

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.
