Diffused Litepipe series from VCC provides a soft glow appearance

Designed for operation in dark environments where a bright indicator is not required, and may even be an annoyance to spectators, the low-profile LFB and LFC series light pipe™ from Visual Communications Company features a frosted surface that provides uniform brightness, a soft glow, and a wide viewing angle at 120°. A retainer accessory provides a reliable solution for high-vibration environments.

Features        
  • Minimizes loss of light and maximum light transmission achieved with the low-profile design and optical grade polycarbonate material
  • Diffused, frosted surface provides uniform brightness, soft glow and wide 120° viewing angle
  • For use with surface-mount or through-hole LED provides flexibility with new or re-designs
  • Press fit (front panel mount) with crushable ribs that simplifies installation and enables faster assembly in a production environment
  • No physical contact between light pipe and LED provides versatility for assembly
Applications        
  • Audio and video equipment
  • IoT
  • Darkroom equipment
  • Electrical control panels
  • Entertainment systems
  • Home theater systems
  • Industrial equipment
  • Medical equipment
  • Security systems
  • Studio control panels
  • Transportation dashboards
Specifications        
  • Diffused, round, low-profile 3 mm or 5 mm light pipe
  • Available in standard lengths ranging from 0.125” (3.2 mm) to 1.000” (25.4 mm)
  • RoHS- and REACH-compliant
  • Made of optical grade polycarbonate 94V-0 clear material
  • Custom lengths are available
  • Optional retainer (RTN112, RTN125) for high-vibration environments (secure and uniform placement of the light pipe to the panel)

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…

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…
