Wyless Acquires Majority Stake in Engineering Firm ClearConnex

Wyless , the leading global Machine to Machine ( M2M ) managed services provider announced today that it has completed the acquisition of a majority stake in ClearConnex Inc, an innovative wireless M2M device engineering company based in Research Triangle Park, NC., USA.

ClearConnex provides end-to-end engineering services including board level design, embedded software, project management, outsourced technical support and certification services. ClearConnex also has a licensable device management software platform, ClearComm, that speeds the development of applications in many of the most popular integrated platforms. The acquisition by Wyless includes a strategic investment in ClearConnex in order to accelerate its market position in engineering services as well as the development and adoption of the ClearComm as a leading device management protocol.

Ryan Rangel, who has run ClearConnex, since he founded the company four years ago, joins Wyless as VP of Engineering Services and will continue to run the day to day operations of the company as a subsidiary of Wyless.

"The addition of Clearconnex to the Wyless Group of companies and Ryan Rangel to our management team brings us one step closer to being a full end-to-end M2M Managed Services Provider," said Dan McDuffie, CEO Wyless. "Ryan will work with Wyless to promote Engineering Services through ClearConnex, to further develop ClearComm, integrating it with Porthos and to assist Wyless partners in getting to market faster. We are really excited to roll out this new menu of engineering services through our investment in ClearConnex"

Ryan Rangel added: "This is a natural next step that builds on the close working relationship that ClearConnex has developed with Wyless and our joint customers over the past 18 months. I see this as an opportunity to continue to promote our "Start Ahead, Finish Ahead" philosophy and to introduce new service offerings from Wyless including bundling network services with our products and engineering services."

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.
