Turck Extended Range M8 Sensors


Turck announces its new range of 8mm barrel inductive proximity sensors. The technology of the ferrite core sensors has evolved, increasing the sensing range by up to 50 percent. As a result, flush mounted solutions can now be offered with an extended sensing range of 3mm as well as with the conventional sensing range of 2mm. The non-flush sensors are likewise available with a 3 or 5mm sensing range. Thanks to the newly developed sensor electronics, Turck is also now able to produce devices with an ultra-short 15mm design.

The modular development approach of the sensor series has led to a broad range of variants that allows users to find the ideal 8mm barrel sensor for their application, without having to compromise. The sensors are available in 15, 22, 30 and 40mm lengths. On the connectivity side, Turck is offering M8 or M12 connectors as well as sensors with a cable outlet, which in turn can be ordered with a 3- or 4-wire connection as NC or changeover contacts.

The sensors with a cable outlet are provided with a cable suitable for E-chain use, and a semi-transparent LED ring at the sensor end, which shows the sensing state from any viewing angle. The sensors are IP67 rated, and have an operating temperature of -25° C to 70° C.

Banner Engineering Vantage Line One-Piece Plastic Fibers


New to Banner Engineering’s Vantage Line series of fiber optics are opposed mode plastic fibers with a one-piece fiber and lens construction. The integrated glass ball lens:
  • Simplifies installation
  • Ensures that the lens will not fall out in high-vibration applications
  • Is more cost-effective than purchasing plastic fibers and a separate lens assembly
  • Provides a very narrow beam which minimizes the chance of light reflecting around a target in dense sensing environments
These plastic fibers offer excellent value, matching performance and a competitive price for OEM opportunities.

IDEC ISMD23E Integrated Stepper Motor + Drive + Controller


IDEC's ISMD23E is a size 23 3-in-1 Integrated Stepper Motor + Drive + Controller package with network interface. It is a self-contained motion control product that is easy to install while delivering best-in-class performance at a competitive price.

ISMD23E incorporates a Stepper motor + drive + controller into a single product that interfaces to the MicroSmart FC6A PLC over the Modbus TCP network. We've reduced total system costs and simplified installation because users only have to purchase one product versus a separate controller, drive, and motor. Plus, programming & configuration is streamlined because it uses user-defined macro instructions in WindLDR PLC programming software. No additional software is required, and users don't need to learn another programming language!

FEATURES
  • Stepper motor + drive + controller integrated for optimum performance
  • High-torque, NEMA frame size 23 stepper motor
  • Powerful 3.4 amp, DC-powered micro stepping drive
  • Anti-resonance circuitry ensures smooth performance at any speed
  • Space saving design simplifies installation with reduced wiring
  • Optional M12 connectors for rigorous applications requiring IP50 or IP67 rating


IDEC ISMD23 Integrated Stepper Motor + Drive


The ISMD23 Size 23 Integrated Stepper Motor + Drive package from IDEC combines value-driven pricing and simplified installation in a dynamically matched drive-to-motor package that optimizes a wide range of industrial automation applications.

Powerful 3.4 amp stepper drive technology has been designed into this package to achieve a space-saving design that delivers outstanding performance.

Simplified installation begins with configuration software that allows you to configure the current level, the idle current amount and the steps per revolution over an RS232 serial link from your PC. 

While the ISMD23 size 23 Integrated Stepper Motor + Drive is configured over a serial link, motion is controlled by a separate device, such as a stepper indexer, that outputs step and direction signals.

FEATURES
  • Stepper motor + drive dynamicallymatched to optimize performance/ reliability
  • High-torque, NEMA-frame size 23 stepper motor
  • Powerful 3.4 amp, DC-powered micro stepping drive
  • Anti-resonance circuitry ensures smooth performance at any speed
  • Space-saving design simplifies installation with reduced wiring
