Toumaz Limited Completes Acquisition of Frontier Silicon

Toumaz Limited (AIM: TMZ, ‘Toumaz’ or ‘the Group’), a pioneer in and provider of ultra-low power, high-performance wireless communications technologies and solutions, has today completed the acquisition of Frontier Silicon Limited ('Frontier') as announced on 3 July 2012.

Anthony Sethill, CEO of Toumaz, commented:

“Bringing these two innovative UK technology companies together is a very exciting event. Toumaz’s wireless solutions have huge potential and combined with the software systems, commercial expertise and customer access of Frontier, we will create a leading provider of wireless semi-conductor solutions. These target the healthcare, sport and fitness and consumer electronics sectors, together with our strategic technology partner and shareholder, Imagination Technologies PLC.

“The new enlarged Group is already the global leader in digital radio solutions, having shipped over 17 million chip sets to date. This market will continue to expand as more territories adopt digital radio and will be further enhanced by the availability of new lower cost, higher performance chipsets, making digital radio more accessible.

“Our professional healthcare offering continues to be a key focus for the group with clear market needs to be addressed. Up to 87% of hospitals in the US have stated an interest in installing wireless monitoring technology in the next two to five years* and our healthcare product aims to be a key driver in the evolution of healthcare monitoring. The Toumaz “Sensium Vitals” monitoring solution has FDA approval and will shortly start pilots in the US.

“By 2016, the global market for wireless sports and fitness monitoring devices is forecast at 120m units** and the opportunity to leverage our healthcare capabilities into the consumer arena is significant.”

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 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.

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…
