AMETEK Factory Automation Launches Enhanced GEMCO 955 eBrik II Linear Displacement Transducer

AMETEK Factory Automation has re-launched its versatile GEMCO® 955 eBrik II™ Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT) with a redesigned connector end cap, an expanded stroke range up to 74 inches (1875 mm) and improved shock and vibration performance.

The 955 eBrik II LDT was developed specifically for original equipment manufacturers and targeted to the market for linear potentiometers typically found in plastics, tire and rubber, web tensioning, factory automation and hydroelectric operations. It utilizes the latest generation of field-proven magnetostrictive position-sensing technology that offers accurate and reliable absolute position indication along with high resolution and precision repeatability.

The rugged and durable construction of the 955 eBrik II™ LDT (100Gs of shock and 15Gs of vibration) makes it suitable for the most demanding applications. The unit is resistant to contaminants and environmental conditions and is IP67 rated.

The self-contained 955 eBrik II™ LDT does not have a can or head. All of its electronics are incorporated within the unit, which is less than an inch in height (profile). A streamlined anodized aluminum extrusion houses the sensing element and electronics. The magnet moves over the sensing element that interpolates the position and converts it to a readable output.

The 955 eBrik II™ LDT is easy to install and set up and is available in stroke lengths from 1” to 74” long. The sensor offers field programmable zero and span settings and features an electronic diagnostic feedback that is transmitted through the analog output so the host controller can tell if the device has failed or moved out of the programmed range.

The 955 eBrik II™ LDT offers a variety of analog output signals (0 to 10VDC, or 4 to 20mA) for maximum connectivity and utilizes standard off-the-shelf cordsets for maximum value. Its low power consumption (1.1 watt typical) allows direct connection to display and control interface modules.

Typical applications for the 955 eBrik II™ LDT include plastic injection molding, extrusion equipment, tire and rubber, hydraulic stamping presses, die casting, lumber and forest product equipment, material handling, web tensioning, and factory automation.

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…
