EnOcean and Partners Present Energy Harvesting Wireless Innovations at Building Services 2012

EnOcean and Thermokon, two promoters of the EnOcean Alliance, today announced they will exhibit at Building Services 2012, the official CIBSE Conference and Exhibition, taking place at London Olympia, 10–11 October. Additionally, Smart Buildings Ltd. will also share the joint stand #D10. The companies will present a wide range of innovative energy harvesting wireless products and systems for efficient building automation. Using wireless energy-autonomous technology energy managers, builders, contractors, installers and architects can easily equip facilities with maintenance-free and service-free automation solutions that enable substantial energy and cost savings.

The Energy Harvesting technology from EnOcean powers wireless communications by collecting energy from the surroundings from motion, indoor light or temperature differentials. This eliminates complicated and costly cabling and the products based on this technology are maintenance-free. The guiding principle behind this is the international standard ISO/IEC 14543-3-10, the first wireless standard optimised for energy harvesting solutions.

EnOcean and Thermokon are two of the eight promoters of the EnOcean Alliance, its key players who lead, define and drive the organisation. The EnOcean Alliance is a non-profit association of companies that integrate EnOcean’s energy harvesting wireless technology in their products. By using the same basic technology for different solutions, the EnOcean Alliance members create devices and systems that are compatible with each other. Currently more than 300 companies worldwide belong to the EnOcean Alliance providing more than 1000 compatible products that work in accordance with the EnOcean standard.

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…
