Chromalox Introduces XtremeDuty™ Platform

Chromalox, a leading manufacturer of advanced thermal technologies, today announced the availability of the XtremeDuty technology platform, a suite of custom engineered thermal solutions that feature engineering, material and proprietary control technologies. The platform is designed to stand up to the most extreme environmental and process conditions present in many areas of the world.

The suite of products includes industrial heaters and systems, heat trace cables and accessories, and heating components that provide customized, reliable and safe solutions that match the requirements brought on by any extreme or hazardous climate or process. All products meet strict third party-certifications and listings, including CE, IEC, ATEX, UL, CSA, FM, DNV and EAC.

“The XtremeDuty platform is a product of our commitment to innovation,” said Troy Dixon, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development. “It is the industry’s first product platform specifically designed to address risk, downtime, maintenance, operating costs and safety needs specific to extreme environmental and process applications.”

In conjunction with the XtremeDuty Platform launch, Chromalox released a six-page white paper presenting the benefits of the new technology platform specifically designed for extreme environmental and process conditions.

The paper provides an overview on the need for practical equipment that can combat common pain points while withstanding extreme conditions in industrial markets like power generation, oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical to name a few. The white paper also elaborates on variables to consider when engineering heating systems that are relied upon to minimize downtime and keep critical processes running.

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…

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…
