The Series 2000 Modular Console System: Infinite Variety From Standard Elements



The Series 2000 Console Range from Hammond Manufacturing which enables complex control desks to be created from standard parts is now available in both RAL7035 light grey and stainless steel. The system allows units to be stacked in multiple combinations to provide equipment support and display functions exactly where they are required. The system is so versatile that the range of applications that can be served from the standard components and accessories is virtually unlimited.

Systems are available in four standard widths: 24 inch (600mm), 36 inch (900mm), 48 inch (1200mm) and 60 inch (1800mm). There are three primary components. (1), the base unit, available with either single or dual access, (2) the desk unit with internal access via a lift-up sloping surface, and (3) the turret unit with angled front face and front/rear access. A stand-alone consolet unit with an integral sloping top is also available. Once the basic structure has been designed, external options such as plinths, footrests or window doors can be added. A huge range of internal accessories such as electrical mounting panels, 19 inch mounting rails, DIN mounting rails swing frames, cable entries, gas struts and many others are available.

The RAL7035 light grey units meet the requirements of NEMA Type 3R, 4 and 12, equivalent to IP66, enabling the consoles to be installed on the shop floor as well as in the control room. The stainless steel versions additionally meet NEMA 4X which make them ideal for various hose-down or corrosive environments.

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…
