Standex Electronics Products Ranked among Most Popular According to Electronic Design Magazine

Standex International Corporation (NYSE:SXI) today announced that three of its Standex Electronics Group’s products recently ranked among the top 101 components for 2012 according to Electronic Design, an industry-leading trade journal with the highest circulation of any design focused publication in the electronics market.

Based on Electronic Design web site page views and site visitors’ votes for their favorite components, two products from Standex Electronics made the list, including Standex planar transformers at number 21 and custom conductive fluid level sensors at number 47. The MK27 magnetically activated reed sensor from Meder Electronics, which was acquired by Standex in July 2012, was named number 68 on the list.

“It is exciting to see these three high-quality electronic components voted among the industry’s best,” said John Meeks, President, Standex Electronics Group. “Their ranking among the 101 favorite products of the readers of Electronic Design demonstrates the strength of the combined Standex and Meder product portfolio. The combination of Meder’s reed switches, reed relays and reed sensors, coupled with Standex’s reed switch, magnetics and sensor product lines provides the combined global sales forces with a broader suite of products and technologies to address our customers’ needs.1”

“The selection of these products also demonstrates the diversity of our industry exposure as a combined company,” Meeks said. “Sensor products such as Standex’s patented conductive fluid level sensor technologies and Meder’s MK27 magnetically activated reed sensor/actuator solutions are enabling both companies to achieve success in the automotive, medical, consumer appliance and industrial markets.1

Our planar transformers, which have superior space saving and power density properties, as well as our comprehensive portfolio of magnetic components, are fueling growth for Standex Electronics in the military, aerospace, alternative energy and power distribution sectors.1

In addition, by broadening our geographic coverage, the combination of Meder and Standex Electronics has resulted in a global organization with engineering capabilities and sales professionals close to the customer – enhancing the collaborative development of customer driven engineered solutions.”

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.

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…
