No-Wear Isolation of Potentials in Terminal Block Design



The TERMOPTO opto modules are characterised by a particularly compact design, pluggable cross-connections and an optimal price-performance ratio.

TERMOPTO offers a compact, electronic alternative to the electromechanical relay for electrical isolation and signal conditioning. Instead of an electromechanical solution that is susceptible to wear, a maintenance-free and compact terminal block with integrated electrical isolation is used. This saves space, reduces the amount of servicing and increases system availability. In addition, the overall accessory needs are reduced, because cross-connectors and markers from the terminal portfolio can be used.

Compact design reduces space requirements in the switching cabinet by > 80 % compared to conventional relay solutions. Wear-free semiconductor switches and extensive protective circuits ensure long service life and reliable switching cycles. LED status indicator provides information on the switching state. Closed design for space-saving, side-by-side arrangement. No end plate necessary; the electronics are mechanically protected. PUSH IN screwless connection system and the pluggable cross-connection reduce wiring time by > 50 %.

The TERMOPTO opto module is used in industrial applications in which electrical isolation and signal conditioning without switching amplification is sufficient.

The compact design in terminal-block format saves space on the rail and offers the option of a pluggable cross connection.

The choice between 10 input voltages and 3 output voltages as well as between screw or PUSH IN connection technology gives 60 variations for different applications.

The integrated protective circuit ensures sufficient protection in applications with resistive as well as slightly inductive and capacitive loads. For purely inductive, capacitive or comparable loads with high switch-on and switch-off peaks, such as solenoid valves or filament lamps, ensure that the module is dimensioned appropriately or an additional safeguard is used.

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…
