TE's C-Lite Light Weight Cable Technology

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, announces its C-Lite cable family of lightweight marine cables has received classification certification from the China Classification Society (CCS), making the C-lite family certified by eight of the top marine classification agencies in the world.

“The C-Lite family of cables are vastly small and light, letting customers do more with less,” said Mark Casselton, product manager, Global Aerospace, Defense, and Marine, TE. “And with TE’s new manufacturing facility in Kunshan, China, we are now able to better serve our customers in Asia with shorter lead times, helping them get to market faster.”

C-Lite cables use TE’s advanced materials technology to deliver a thin-wall insulation that dramatically reduces the size and weight of cables – without reducing the electrical or mechanical properties. From general power and lighting to communication, control and instrumentation applications, the C-Lite cable family is designed for use in a variety of commercial marine, offshore and military marine applications.

The C-Lite cables install up to 30 percent faster into a vessel or module compared to traditional cables, permit tighter bend radii and enable smaller cable trays and ancillaries, allowing more equipment to be connected within the same space. The thin-wall technology uses low-smoke and zero halogen wire and cable – which emits lower levels of toxic gases and generates considerably lower levels of smoke so that visibility is preserved in an emergency. The highly flame retardant cables are resistant to oils, solvents, fuels and petroleum mud.

In addition to the recent classification certification from CCS, TE’s C-Lite family of high-performance lightweight marine cables are certified by seven other leading marine classification approvals, including: ABS (American Bureau of Shipping), BV (Bureau Veritas), DNV (Det Norske Veritas),GL (Germanischer Lloyd), KR (Korean Register of Shipping), NK (Nippon Kaiji Kyokai) and RMRS (Russian Maritime Register of Shipping).

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…
