TELUS 4G LTE Certifies Red Lion’s IndustrialPro® Cellular Routers and RAM® 6000 Cellular RTUs



Red Lion Controls, the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, today announced the recent availability of 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) support on the TELUS cellular network for its Sixnet® series IndustrialPro® cellular routers and RAM® 6000 cellular RTUs. As one of the fastest-growing telecommunications and largest healthcare IT providers in Canada, TELUS offers a wide range of communications products and services that include wireless, data, Internet protocol (IP), voice, television, entertainment and video.

Manufacturing and industrial organizations are transitioning from static, fixed infrastructures to dynamic, high-performance networks that serve as the platform for a growing number of connected devices across multiple locations. With 4G LTE wireless connectivity, industrial networking users can leverage increased data speeds for primary or backup WAN connectivity. LTE devices typically feature data rates up to 100 times faster than legacy 2G network technologies, making it well suited for remote sites, video surveillance applications and remote automation environments.

“We are proud to offer additional LTE support in Canada for our cellular M2M IndustrialPro and RAM 6000 products,” said Paul Bunnell, product director, process automation for Red Lion. "This new TELUS certification expands on Red Lion’s unwavering dedication to provide the market with reliable, high-quality devices that combine the power of LTE with rugged performance. Our technology supports fast access to data and video, enabling customers to achieve data rates that were once only available through the use of wired connections.”

Red Lion’s Sixnet series IndustrialPro cellular routers and RAM cellular RTUs provide fast, secure and economical wireless connectivity to remote locations and assets while offering reliable service from 4G or 3G connectivity in a single solution. As a primary WAN connection or a backup to existing network links, these cellular routers and RTUs are suited for harsh industrial environments such as oil and gas, energy and water/wastewater applications where security and reliability is paramount.

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.

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…
