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.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon.
