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 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…
