Mitsubishi Electric to Install High-Speed Elevators in Two Major Chengdu Skyscrapers

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today it has received orders for the installation of high-speed elevators in Chengdu Hilton International Square and Chengdu International Mart, two building complexes currently under construction and scheduled to be opened in 2013 in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province, China. A total of 88 units of elevators and escalators are planned for these projects.

At Chengdu Hilton International Square, a 165.8-meter, mixed-use building complex incorporating offices, residences and a hotel, 48 sets of elevators will be installed, including 11 sets of high-speed models that can travel up to six meters per second, as well as four sets of escalators. The order was placed by Chengdu George Seaton Real Estate Co., Ltd.

For Chengdu International Mart, a 39-story, 168-meter structure housing offices, residences and commercial facilities, Chengdu Sino-Strong Co., Ltd., placed an order for 36 sets of elevators, including four high-speed models that can travel up to six meters per second.

"These orders evidence customers' continued recognition not only of the high-quality products manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric and its Chinese joint venture company, Shanghai Mitsubishi Elevator Co., Ltd., but also their confidence in the superior support and service the two companies will provide," said Shinji Sasaki, general manager of overseas marketing and group vice president of Building Systems, Mitsubishi Electric. "Going forward, Mitsubishi Electric will continue to provide safe, reliable and comfortable elevators and escalators throughout China." The elevator market in China has been experiencing steady growth. Especially in inland areas where economic development has been remarkable, demand for high-speed elevators for high-rise office buildings and hotels is booming. To meet this demand, Mitsubishi Electric and Shanghai Mitsubishi Elevator Co., Ltd., have worked to strengthen sales and technical support capabilities in inland China. The two companies have enhanced their resources by reinforcing sales, engineering and after-sales services at inland branch offices and by increasing the number of sales and sales engineering staff from Mitsubishi Electric's Japan offices in order to assure their ability to quickly and effectively meet customers' individual needs.

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.
