connectBlue Honored with Wireless Product Leadership Award

Whether they are used in traf­fic guid­ance sys­tems, pho­to­voltaic sys­tems, build­ing machin­ery, super­vi­sion cam­eras or off­shore wind farms – mod­ern indusuconnectBlue today announced that Frost & Sullivan has presented the 2012 European Product Leadership Award for Wireless Solutions in Industrial Markets to connectBlue. According to the research conducted, connectBlue performed remarkably better than any of the other top companies evaluated.

The Product Leadership Award is a notable recognition of connectBlue’s accomplishments in wireless solutions in industrial markets. connectBlue came out as a clear winner out of the top companies that Frost & Sullivan evaluated; the weighted rating of all five categories gave connectBlue the ranking of “excellent” while the other companies ranked “good” or “fair.”

“Our highest ranking – 10 out of 10 – was achieved in the “Product Quality” category,” says Rolf Nilsson, CEO of connectBlue. “We are pleased for this third-party recognition as we – since day one – have been committed to delivering long-term, high-performing wireless products for tough, demanding applications.”

Frost & Sullivan confirms that “connectBlue has developed state-of-the-art wireless modules comprising excellent performance, extended lifecycle and compatibility with other devices in the industrial network, and hence connectBlue has become one of the leaders in European industrial wireless devices market. Since 2001, the company has offered products based on its own Bluetooth stacks and Wireless LAN software drivers that are characterized by enhanced liability, long range connectivity, high throughput, low latency and low power consumption,” says Anna Mazurek, Research Analyst, Industrial Automation & Process Control, Frost & Sullivan.

The unbiased, third-party Frost & Sullivan recognized connectBlue as the award recipient after a process of identifying industry challenges and opportunities, deciding on award criteria, conducting best practice research, identifying the top performing companies, and finally rating these companies against the criteria. The award criteria covered the following:
  •     Features/Functionality
  •     Innovative Element of the Product
  •     Product Acceptance in the Marketplace
  •     Provides Customer Value Enhancements
  •     Product Quality
“Besides having a portfolio of high quality industrial wireless devices, connectBlue has been continuously striving to develop additional innovative product features that set the company apart from other wireless providers on the market,” concludes Mazurek.trial on the con­nec­tors used.

Pro­tec­tion against humid­ity or mechan­i­cal stress are no longer the only sig­nif­i­cant cri­te­ria. Depend­ing on the appli­ca­tion, mod­ern con­nec­tors have to trans­mit high cur­rents for energy sup­ply, man­age high data rates and con­tribute to com­ply­ing with EMC require­ments. CONEC’s port­fo­lio is as var­ied as those requirements:

• IP67 D-Subminiature Solid Body (Stan­dard, High Den­sity)
• IP67 D-Subminiature Com­bi­na­tion Solid Body (Stan­dard, High Den­sity)
• IP67 D-Subminiature (Stan­dard, High Den­sity)
• IP67 D-Subminiature Com­bi­na­tion (Stan­dard, High Den­sity)
• IP67 D-Subminiature Fil­ter (Stan­dard, High Den­sity
• IP67 Hoods and Accessories

With the Solid Body ver­sion of the D-Subminiature con­nec­tor, CONEC has fur­ther opti­mised the IP67. The hous­ing is made of one piece and there­fore offers opti­mal pro­tec­tion in the vicin­ity of high mechan­i­cal stress.

As a spe­cial­ist for fil­ter con­nec­tors, CONEC has inte­grated a low pass fil­ter in the inter­faces pro­tected against cli­matic impact as an addi­tional pro­tec­tion against elec­tri­cal inter­fer­ence. Amongst oth­ers, the patented pla­nar fil­ter tech­nol­ogy patented by CONEC is used. This tech­nol­ogy does not only include a fil­ter for con­ducted inter­fer­ence, but also pro­vides excel­lent shield­ing in the mat­ing area to elim­i­nate inter­fer­ence directly at the inter­face to the inte­rior device.

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.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon.
