Molex offers its 2.4 GHz/5 GHz Wi-Fi stand-alone balance antennas in 100 mm, 250 mm, and 300 mm cable lengths

Dual-band transmission-balanced antennas from Molex combine ground-plane independence with high-radiation efficiency for better connectivity and faster wireless device processing. This dipole-style antenna offers balanced transmission throughout the entire connection regardless of cable length. Upon removal of its tape liner, the antenna can be applied anywhere within the device chassis. The UFL-type connector at the extreme end of the antenna is secured to the application’s device radio.

  • Balanced antenna with ground-plane independent design
    • Reduces engineering resources and costs needed to mitigate PCB ground-induced radiation
  • High-radiation efficiency with 34.9 mm by 9 mm strip antenna
    • Offers total efficiency values of 75% minimum in the 2.4 GHz band and 70% minimum in the 5 GHz band
  • Poly-flexible, double-sided adhesive tape on antenna
    • Enables easy peel-and-stick mounting anywhere within the device casing
  • Coaxial cable to center-fed antenna attachment with over 18.0 N of pull force
    • Ensures robust antenna reliability and connectivity to radio device

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…
