Murrplastik Introduces a Cable Drag Chain Solution for Heavy Duty Applications

Murrplastik Systems, leaders in cable drag chain products and innovation, have introduced a new model into their PowerLine Cable Drag Series designed to meet the growing demand for greater loading, distance and speed capacities. The new MP 52.6 features a significant increase in chain side link wall thickness resulting in a 1.5X increase in maximum tractive force.

In addition to the optimized distribution of tensile forces, the MP 52.6 cable drag chain also features more stable operation and less wear while considerably extending the chain’s useful life. Additionally, a new latch mechanism answers the demand for even greater simplification of installation and servicing work. This new latch system makes it possible to open the frame bridges from the top allowing the cable drag chain to be left where it is in the guide channel during upgrades and repairs.

Another new optional feature of the MP 52.6 are sliding blocks that serve to further minimize wear to the chain side links. They feature a specially designed 4 mm wear zone and are fitted onto the side links in the cable drag chain’s inside bend instead of the usual frame bridge interlocks. This results in the sliding blocks wearing down first and foremost, thus extending the life of the cable drag chain.

The new MP 52.6 features a chain side link thickness of 25 mm (compared to the standard product 16 mm) and an inside chain height of 52 mm. The flexible MP shelving system permits the definition of any internal width from 45 mm to 600 mm. It is designed specifically for heavy-duty tasks in the mid-size performance category where operating loads are increasing due to extra control, data and supply cabling and/or extended travel distances.   The MP 52.6 is designed specifically to handle the resultant exponential increase in tensile.

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…
