Watlow® Introduces a New Brand Strategy Including a New Logo and Tagline

Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, announced a comprehensive new branding strategy today. A core component of the enhanced strategy will be newly designed logo and tagline icons. The new look was unveiled internally to team members across the globe the week of November 30, and the icons will be unveiled externally at the company’s booth at POWER GEN® International 2016, being held December 8 – 10, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Watlow’s purpose and vision is to enable our customers to thrive,” said Bob Moore, director of marketing communications. “Our new company logo reflects our commitment of providing best in class engineering expertise and leading thermal products that give our customers a competitive advantage. The new tagline, “Powered by Possibility” captures this sentiment perfectly and serves as a daily challenge to all Watlow team members to think beyond the constraints of today. The new logo and tagline together symbolize our unwavering commitment in being our customer’s most valued partner.”

Watlow spent over 18 months assessing its current position in the marketplace interviewing both customers and team members. Using that valuable data, the company developed a new brand architecture including the enterprise brand, which is represented by the corporate logo, tagline and emotional benefit, the sub-brands including the company’s business units and product portfolio.

“We left no rock unturned,” continued Moore. “We wanted to do this right. We talked with customers, team members and experts in the field. We know how important it is to understand our position in the market before undertaking a rebranding exercise. Knowing how our customers have traditionally perceived Watlow was critical in determining how we could best serve them moving forward. Our research confirmed that customers welcomed our desire to expand our brand and associated offerings through a deeper understanding of their applications. We are encouraged by our success within our strategic markets to date and are excited for the future of the company.”

Stop by Watlow’s booth number 2227 at POWER GEN® International and be one of the first to see the company’s new look.

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.

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…
