New Measuring Heads for Linear and Rotary Applications



With the LIMES LI20 and LI50 Kübler is presenting a new generation of measuring heads in a particularly solid die-cast housing. Used in conjunction with its magnetic bands with their stainless-steel covering, the resulting linear measurement system stays sealed even in harsh industrial environments and offers security against failures in the field. The magnetic rings offer the user a remarkably compact measurement system for rotary applications where installation space is very tight. Installation depths of only 16mm are possible with a large hollow shaft of 30mm. The combination of rings and bands plus Kübler's flexible manufacturing facilities open up a wide spectrum of different geometries that can be scanned, such as for example pitch circles or curves.

The non-contact technology ensures high vibration and shock resistance. The products can also be used outdoors, thanks to the high IP67 protection rating, the permitted 100% humidity with condensation, the wide temperature range and the weatherproof die-cast housing. The metal housing also offers improved shielding against electromagnetic interference.

Installation can be carried out very easily due to the large permitted tolerances of up to 1mm, which apply not only to the distance from band to sensor head but also for lateral misalignment, as well as to the built-in LED, which gives a red warning signal if the distance from the band to the reading head is too great or if the speed is too high. A green light shows the index pulse. The wide supply voltage range from 4.8 to 30 VDC likewise facilitates installation. The connections are made via a high-grade shielded PUR cable that is also suitable for trailing cable applications.

The sensing head is available either with a push-pull output or an RS422 interface and supplies two channels plus a periodic index with the corresponding inverted channels. The resolution is up to 5 mm with quadruple evaluation and the repeat accuracy is +/- one increment. The maximum traversing speed is 25m/s.

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. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
