DF-G2 High Speed Fiber Amplfier Now with Several LED Colors

Banner Engineering’s high speed DF-G2 fiber amplifiers now offer several LED colors to maximize contrast in challenging low-contrast applications. For example, a green LED generates more signal difference (i.e. contrast) when detecting a red mark on a white background than a red LED can generate. White, green, blue and infrared LED colors are available to cover the broadest range of applications. The IR LED model is especially useful with “T5” terminated glass fiber assemblies and provides almost two times more detection range than the red LED.The DF-G2 series is the high-speed version of the DF-G fiber optic amplifier family. The …

Pro-face GP4000M Rear Module

Pro-face America has launched the new GP4000M series rear module for their GP4x01M series of HMIs. The GP4000M Rear Module offers two unique data management architectures. Thanks to the large library of 3rd party protocols supported, the GP4000M Rear Module can be deployed as a “Factory Gateway”. As a Factory Gateway, the GP4000M can bridge devices from two different networks, each network operating on a different industrial communications protocol. For applications where operator interaction is not required or infrequent and data collection is necessary the GP4000M operating as a “blind node” makes for a cost effective solution. Coupled with our …

Pepperl+Fuchs R2000 Detection Laser Scanner

Pepperl+Fuchs introduces the R2000 Detection Laser Scanner. Smaller than most coffee mugs, these 2D laser scanners feature a 360-degree gapless measurement angle with angular resolution within 0.071 degrees, scan frequency to 30 Hz and object detection down to 1 mm. An eye-safe visible red laser simplifies alignment and, because the light spot is up to 15 times smaller than competitive technology, it enables precise detection of very small objects or reflectors. R2000 Detection Scanners can also detect objects up to 10 m away and reflectors up to 30 m away, with measurement repeatability that is always within 12 mm of …
