Parker introduces cost-efficient and energy-saving refrigeration dryer series StarlettePlus-E for effective removal of water vapour from compressed air

Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, presents with the new StarlettePlus-E series an efficient solution for the reliable removal of water vapor from compressed air. The new series from Parker Hiross, the expert brand within Parker for cooling & refrigeration, combines quality and efficiency at low operating costs while at the same time offering the smallest carbon footprint currently available. Developed around a state-of-the-art aluminum heat exchanger, the so-called E-Pack (patent pending), the StarlettePlus-E series features an air-to-air and an air-to-refrigerant section, a highly efficient stainless steel demister separator and a moisture collection chamber, resulting in a standard ISO 8573-1 class 4 air quality. The series was designed for industrial and general compressed air applications requiring a pressure dew point as low as 3° C (ISO 8573-1:2010, class 4), a necessity in many manufacturing processes and industries.

Thanks to the highly efficient E-Pack design and the innovative heat exchanger, the refrigerant circuit is noticeably smaller and offers lowest absorbed power (kW) by the fridge compressors in its range. In addition, it uses minimum refrigerant charges which, on average, are 25 % lower than those of comparable dryers. This makes Parker Hiross StarlettePlus-E the solution with the least running costs and the smallest impact on the environment in the market. Additional cost reductions can be achieved with the Energy Save feature which is available as of model 026 and bigger. It will decrease energy consumption during partial load operation by cycling the fridge compressor activity while at the same time cooling the inlet air with the cold reserve stored in the E-Pack mass.

All models are equipped with a digital controller, featuring functionalities which are useful in day-by-day operations of any application: dew point level indication, voltage-free alarm contact, maintenance reminder and integrated time controlled condensate drain. In addition, thanks to its dual frequency design, StarlettePlus-E is ready to operate either in 50Hz or 60Hz environments.

Removable panels and internal component disposition facilitate service inspections and maintenance. For easy access to the drain, a pass-through drain niche is also available on all SPE models. The StarlettePlus-E can either be installed next to or hung on a wall, making it a most flexible solution for many environments. The series is available as of now.

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…
