Pfannenberg's PYRA-MA Flashing Sounder wins 2015 Red Dot Design Award

By winning the honorable 2015 Product Design award, Pfannenberg’s PYRA-MA Flashing Alarms were proudly recognized by the international jury for their quality and design excellence.

The PYRA-MA flashing sounder has an elegant pyramid design which tapers to the outside and/or top, so the alarm device settles closely against every surface contour. With its stylistcally confident design, the PYRA-MA series can fit in every room and for every machine shapes.

The integrated sound outlets give the device clear “eyes” resulting in a classical-futuristic design.

The PYRA-MA is designed for simultaneous or separated visual or audible alerts (10 joule light output and 100 dB(A) volume). Thanks to the high system of protection (IP 66 and IK 08), and their resistance to a wide ambient temperature range (-40 to + 55°).

Pfannenberg’s industrial signaling products are the best solution for many applications worldwide including machine construction (start-up warning, machine safety) and commercial buildings (fire and gas alerting). Due to the large signaling area, the amount of signaling devices required is significantly reduced and the application remains economical while ensuring industrial safety.

Professor Dr Peter Zec, Founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award stated: “The laureates of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015 have demonstrated exceptionally high achievements and have thus been deservedly successful in the world’s largest design competition.”

Pfannenberg industrial alarms with visual and audible notifications come with a standard 10-Year Warranty, guaranteed to protect man, machine and the environment.

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…
