Ultrasonic Sensors That Think as Well as They Hear



Call in the Banner U-GAGE® ultrasonic sensor to solve applications that photoelectrics can’t. With our complete line of advanced ultrasonic sensors at hand, you have the most versatile, accurate and effective solutions for the toughest applications challenges.

Place the U-GAGE in just about any severe environment. Rated to IP68; NEMA 6P, they can weather the elements. Chemical-resistant models are ideal in a wide variety of level control and other harsh chemical processes. Numerous housing styles, mounting options and ranges give you a choice of solutions for your application. Our ultrasonics are even versatile in outputs; some models offer analog and discrete outputs in the same sensor. And most models have push buttons for fast programming of custom sensing windows.

Banner ultrasonics feature built-in temperature compensation, allowing the sensor to self-correct for its environment and maintain the highest sensing accuracy in changing conditions. Available in models with sensing ranges from 30 mm to 8 m and sensing resolutions from 0.1% to 0.25% of total sensing distance, our microprocessor design ensures consistent performance across the entire sensing range.

Ultrasonic sensors use sound waves, not light, and this makes them ideal for problematic clear material sensing applications. Use ultrasonics to effectively and accurately sense liquids, clear objects and targets in dirty environments. Ultrasonics are inherently impervious to color differences, high reflectivity and glare, all of which are application challenges for photoelectrics.

If you thought ultrasonic sensors couldn’t cut it, think again. You’ll find our advanced U-GAGE sensors can solve the most difficult applications in your plant with the power of ultrasound.

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…
