DF-G2 High Speed Expert Dual Display Fiber Amplifier



The DF-G2 series is the high speed version of the DF-G fiber optic amplifier family. The DF-G2 was designed to achieve the world’s fastest response speed and precise repeatability for fiber optic sensing applications. A much brighter LED and a more effectively coupled optical system was designed to extend sensing range and improve speed. The result is a sensor that can achieve 10 microsecond response time with 5 microsecond repeatability and detection ranges exceeding the competition.

Development of additional DF-G2 fiber amplifiers with specialized firmware for small object counting and models with white, green, and blue LED colors for registration mark applications is underway.

Features:
  • Response speeds of:
    • 10 μs (Super High Speed)
    • 15 μs (High Speed)
    • 50 µs (Fast)
    • 250 μs (Standard)
    • 500 μs (Medium Range)
    • 1000 μs (Long Range)
  • User has full control over all parameters:
    • Switch point threshold
    • Light Operate or Dark Operate
    • Output timing functions (One-Shot, On/Off Delay)
    • Gain level
    • Response speed
  • New highly visible red LED sensing beam for easy alignment to the target
  • ECO (economy) display mode reduces amplifier power consumption by 25%
  • Easy to read dual digital displays show both signal level and threshold simultaneously
  • Programming via displays and switches/buttons or remote input teach wire
  • Expert TEACH and SET methods ensure optimal gain and threshold for all applications, especially low contrast applications
  • Thermally stable electronics minimize warm-up drift and reduce the effect of side-by-side mounting of multiple fiber amplifiers
  • Cross talk avoidance algorithm allows two sensors to operate in close proximity for many applications
  • Sleek 10 mm wide housing mounts to standard 35 mm DIN rail

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…
