Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced its MagSpeed Quadrature, SNG-Q Series output speed and direction sensor that combines highperformance accuracy with industry-leading reliability. The new sensor is designed and tested to
perform within potentially harsh conditions that could cause malfunctions and system downtime from moisture, extreme temperatures and electrical noise.

“Machine downtime is costly for all manufacturers, and sensor failures can be especially difficult to identify and troubleshoot,” said Ted Tomita, product marketing manager, Honeywell Sensing & Productivity Solutions. “The Magspeed Quadrature Sensor is a solution that can reliably perform in nearly any condition, backed by Honeywell’s consultative, technical expertise in working with design engineers to create a solution that best fits their systems.”

The MagSpeed Quadrature Sensor, SNG-Q Series, meets performance and reliability standards in:
  • Environmental Sealing: The MagSpeed Quadrature Sensor meets IP67/69k standards, among the highest ingress protection ratings for the transportation industry. This will enable the sensor to withstand water and moisture from penetrating the sensors that could cause damage to the component and system failures.
  • Electrical Noise Immunity: The new sensor’s electrical noise radiated immunity (EMC) is rated to 100 volts/meter, which meets the stringent ISO rating for the transportation industry. As a result, the MagSpeed Quadrature Sensor is more protected from outside radio noise and frequencies from cell phone towers, two-way radio devices, and other communication signals that could interfere with sensor readings and signals.
  • Temperature Range: The MagSpeed Quadrature Sensor is capable of operating in a wider temperature range from minus 40 to 150 degrees Celsius, providing more flexibility to design engineers in the sensor’s installation location. The increased temperature range will help the sensor’s reliability when installed near a machine’s engine, exhaust or brakes where exposure to high temperatures is common.

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 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…
