New Pictor2 high-end inkjet printer makes industrial labeling faster and easier

With a larger print area, a huge capacity of up to 600,000 characters per cartridge and an integrated WLAN and Ethernet interface, the new pictor2 inkjet label printer by Murrplastik sets the standard for colour-based inkjet printing systems. The technical highlight: The pictor2 is the first industrial printer capable of independently measuring the print area, providing you 100% assurance of repeatability and reliability.
Figure 1: The pictor2 high-end inkjet printer, an evolution of the previous pictor model, is the first ever industrial printer capable of independently measuring the print area.

The labelling specialists Murrplastik Systemtechnik, Oppenweiler will be presenting the pictor2 high-end inkjet printer, an evolution of the previous pictor model, at the SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2012 trade exhibition. Razor-sharp and photorealistic quality with 720 dpi and fast printing are features that the pictor2 inherits from its predecessor. Murrplastik’s engineers have developed a new ink specifically for the pictor2. The robust typeface is ideal for use in tough industrial environments. An important additional benefit is the greatly improved range of the ink, with an increase in capacity of up to 50%.
Figure 2: Six polycarbonate labelling mats are fixed on the base plate of the pictor2 and labelled simultaneously within 90 seconds.

The pictor2 is really easy to operate. Six polycarbonate labelling mats are fixed on the base plate and labelled simultaneously within 90 seconds. Different sign types can also be “mixed” on a single base plate. That means that your company can manufacture its entire daily requirement of labelling plates in just a few minutes with virtually no effort. The ACS labelling software can be used to read in design data through CAD interfaces.

With its attractive design and a weight of just 20 kg, the pictor2 is the ideal desktop printer. All in all, the pictor2 is the most economical labelling system for companies with medium to high labelling volumes.

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 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…
