OMRON Releases New Products in SYSMAC CP Series of Micro Programmable Controllers

In recent years, there has been increased demand for more advanced functionality, even in micro PLCs with approximately 10 to 200 I/O points for use in small-scale control applications. Since 2006, CPU units for advanced micro PLCs, the CP1H CPU units and CP1L CPU units, have been added to the CP series. OMRON Corporation (TOKYO: 6645, ADR: OMRNY) today announced the release of CP1E CPU units, the latest addition to its SYSMAC CP series of micro programmable controllers. Sales of the new CPU units, which were developed around the concept of "economy, efficiency and ease of use," will begin in April. (Please contact your local representative for availability.) There are also many manufacturers that give greater priority to cost efficiency and want to achieve the same functionality while reducing materials costs. This represents a major demand for price reduction. The CP1E CPU units released today can be used to build low-cost micro PLCs that respond to these demands. Manufacturers that produce compact equipment place importance on keeping manufacturing costs down without spending an excessive amount of time on design and system implementation. The CP1E CPU units also respond to this demand by featuring simplified programming and wiring verification. There are two types of CPU units: the low-cost, minimal functionality E-type basic CPU units, and the N-type application CPU units, which incorporate a serial port for connection with programmable terminals and a pulse I/O function for position control. The N-type CPU units can control compact devices efficiently.

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…
