HONEYWELL INTRODUCES ONE OF THE INDUSTRY’S SMALLEST AMPLIFIED DIGITAL PRESSURE SENSORS TO HELP REDUCE DESIGN, MANUFACTURING COSTS

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced its new Amplified Basic Pressure (ABP) sensor, one of the smallest amplified digital pressure sensors in the industry, to help engineers design systems that fit on increasingly smaller and lower power devices. The ABP sensor features wet-media compatibility, as well as sleep mode and temperature
output options, making it a versatile choice for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

Measuring 8 by 7 millimeters, the ABP sensor’s small size will help engineers significantly save board space and reduce design and manufacturing costs, while maintaining enhanced performance and reliability of the systems they design.

The ABP sensors will be among the most accurate of their kind with a ±1.5 percent total error band (TEB), and capable of reading pressure ranges from 60 mbar to 10 bar, 6 kPa to 1 MPa and 1 psi to 150 psi. This will enable engineers to better optimize system performance by improving resolution and system accuracy.

“Low power systems and the ‘Internet of Things’ are expanding into many industries. As a result, engineers have more pressure now to develop not just smarter, but smaller systems to fit these emerging trends,” said Dan Herzog, product line director, Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions. “Our new amplified digital basic pressure sensors were designed to help engineers meet these aggressive design goals by saving valuable space and cost without compromising the end product’s performance.”

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…
