Turck YB2 LED Splitter

Turck announces an expansion to the YB2 line of compact disconnect splitters with LEDs. The new addition to the YB2 line features a translucent black over molded design. This encapsulates the LEDs and protects them from physical damage while also complimenting visibility. The LEDs are visible from both sides of the splitter, which allows for more flexible mounting options. The YB2 is available with an M12 (eurofast) trunk connector and either M12 (eurofast) or M8 (picofast) branch connectors.  This YB2 splitter is also used to consolidate two separate discrete PNP device signals into a single cable or into a multi-port junction box. The …

Banner Q4X High Resolution Models

  Banner Engineering is introducing new Q4X models optimized for higher performance over a shorter measuring range. The new 100 mm models, available with the same bipolar discrete (NPN PNP) and analog (0-10 V or 4-20 mA) output options as the longer range 300 mm models, offer twice the measurement precision and a 25% smaller laser spot for detecting small features. Discrete models can now detect objects as thin as 0.5 mm while analog models more precisely inspect part dimensions and positioning with resolution down to 0.15 mm. Features: Solves difficult distance-based applications regardless of target surface reflectivity, including black …
