Banner Engineering DF-G3 Fiber Amplifier

Banner Engineering’s DF-G3 fiber amplifiers, with their world-class long-range detection, are now available in models with visible red, infrared and long infrared LEDs to solve the broadest range of detection applications. Visible red LED can be used with glass or plastic fibers and allows for easy alignment of the light to the target. Infrared LEDs can only be used with glass fibers but provide twice the range and optical power of the visible red LED. The long wavelength infrared (1450 nm) must be used with glass fibers, but it provides a powerful and unique solution for detecting water based liquids. …

Phoenix Contact RIFLINE Relays with Blowout Magnets

Phoenix Contact’s RIFLINE Complete family now includes relays with blowout magnets for arc suppression, enabling switching of higher current DC circuits. At low voltages, relays are designed with a contact/air gap sufficient enough to break the arc when the contacts open. When the same relay is used to switch greater DC loads, this same arc can destroy the relay contacts. In applications where circuits have higher current DC loads, relays with blowout magnets can be used to break the arc upon contact opening, “blowing out” the arc. These RIFLINE Complete relays with blowout magnets help extend the life of the …

Banner Engineering WLB32 Industrial LED Light Bar

The WLB32 is now available with a built-in motion detector and an eye shield window option in both AC and DC models.  The passive infrared (PIR) motion detector was developed for use in applications that need an automated way to turn the light on and off. It is ideal for locations that cannot use a physical switch or where the placement of the switch is not useful. While LED lighting provides dramatic energy savings over traditional light sources, further savings can be derived by switching lights off when not in use.  New models of the WLB32 featuring an eye shield …
