har-flexicon®: tool-free individual conductor wiring with 1.27 mm spacing



The HARTING Technology Group is creating new standards in the PCB field with har-flexicon®, the new miniaturized and field-assemblable individual conductor connection technology with 1.27 mm spacing.

Flexible individual conductor wiring of industrial devices with PCBs as their key component is one of the principal requirements in modern device technology – and it will always stay that way. Because sensoric and actoric subassemblies need to be connected on site rapidly, PCB connection technology must continue to be universally applicable. What is required is flexibility in the connection of I/O signals with tool-less individual conductor wiring – which enables on-site assembly in the field.

It is always the overall, not the individual, costs of components which are paramount in the development of industrial subassemblies. The use of reflow and SMD solderable components in automated assembly and soldering processes leads to manufacturing costs which are lower than those for the manual assembly and wave soldering of wired components.

There is a universal demand for units to become ever more compact. Efficient device design and more powerful components with higher efficiency and greater power density lead to innovative devices, which deliver a growing variety of functions and performance coupled with reduced device volume. So, even with classical PBC connectors, miniaturization continues to march ahead with components in this segment constantly getting smaller and smaller. Despite this reduction in size, users still expect to operate connection technology just as conveniently and quickly as conventional products with higher spacing measurements.

har-flexicon® meets all these requirements consistently and is a model for rapid and convenient wiring of ever more compact devices whilst addressing the economics of the assembly process.

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…

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…
