Banner Engineering DF-G3 Analog Output Fiber Amplifiers

The DF-G3 fiber amplifiers were developed by Banner Engineering to provide world-class long-range detection. It has 1.33x longer range than the DF-G2 at 1 ms response speed, and 2.5x longer range than the DF-G2 at 24 ms response speed. The increased sensing power enables longer detection for all applications and detection of very small targets and features when used with very small core fiber assemblies. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets, and increases detection sensitivity when using array fiber assemblies for web guiding or area detection for part ejection applications.FEATURES World-class long-range sensing capability, more than …

Turck minifast Control Power Wiring Solution

Turck has developed a new connectivity solution that is compatible with the control power connection system utilized with Rockwell ArmorStart distributed motor starters. Turck’s Minifast control power offering gives an alternative solution to have drop in replacements that tap directly into the existing E-stop control wiring circuits.Turck’s solution uses a 5-pin connector with the same pinout as a standard 6-pin Minifast connector. The connector has the pin #4 location on the connector plugged, which ensures it cannot mate with either a standard 5-pin or 6-pin Minifast connector. This prevents any chance of mis-wiring to any other existing connectors in the …
