Eaton’s New Eatonite® Anti-Corrosion Laser Cladding Provides Best-in-Class Protection for Cylinders in Harsh Marine Environments

Power management company Eaton today announced new Eatonite® anti-corrosion laser cladding, which enhances the service life and reliability of high-functioning cylinders. The coating, certified to meet Joint Industry Protection (JIP) guidelines by DNV GL, protects cylinders in the demanding salt water applications and harsh operating environments, reducing costs of unplanned maintenance and equipment downtime.  

Suitable for offshore deep water oil and gas exploration and production, marine, civil engineering, wave power and other heavy duty applications, Eatonite anti-corrosion laser cladding can be applied to new cylinders or refurbished applications. The coating can be repaired in the field, allowing users shorter lead time for application. Optimized for corrosion, wear, scratch and impact resistance, the Eatonite solution expands the length of time between services.

“Maximizing uptime is imperative to the efficiency of heavy duty machinery, and anti-corrosion coatings are critical when protecting cylinders from harsh conditions such as salt spray,” said Stephanie Risberg, cylinder product manager, Eaton. “The new Eatonite anti-corrosion laser cladding is a best in class, reliable coating that can withstand most harsh environments.”

The Eatonite coating solution is proven to last more than 45,000 hours in harsh marine environments, including atmospheric and splash zones, and can be applied to cylinders of any length. The product also withstands up to a 180-degree bend and impacts of up to 24 foot-pounds of force without cracking.

Additionally, customers who accept Eaton’s guidance for application and care will receive a two-year product warranty.

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 E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p


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.
