Banner Engineering Sure Cross Wireless Q120 Button/Light Pendant

The Sure Cross® Wireless Q120 button and light pendant from Banner Engineering is an autonomous wireless Node that enables two-way communication between an operator and up to six remote and/or mobile devices. Six independently controlled push-button inputs allow operators to wirelessly send status updates, acknowledgements, initiate processes, and actuate devices. Six red and green LED indicators provide local indication of status from remote or mobile devices and equipment. A wireless radio, internal battery supply, and optional 10-30VDC power terminals are housed inside the Node, making this product series truly plug and play.

  • DIP switch configurable
  • Six push-button inputs with momentary or toggle operation
  • Six sets of red and green LED indicator lights with solid or flashing operation
  • Reliable, field-proven Sure Cross wireless architecture operates in the globally accepted 2.4 GHz frequency band or the long-range 900 Mhz frequency band, depending upon model

Crydom PMP Proportional Controllers

Crydom's PMP Series are fully configurable Panel Mount proportional control relays with micro controller based technology designed to provide control of the power delivered to single-phase loads of up to 90 Amps at 90 to 600VAC.

PMP Series SSRs vary the output power in proportion to an analog control input, which can be one of 3 signal types: 0-5VDC, 0-10VDC or 4-20mA. The output can be controlled by 2 different methods, selectable on the unit: Phase Angle Control, and Burst Fire Control (with Distributive Zero Cross).

PMP Series proportional controllers are ideal for a wide range of applications that require control of the load power, such as for example lamp dimming and resistive heating control.

  • Output ratings of 25, 50 and 90 Amps
  • Available in 3 operating voltage ranges: 90-280, 345-530 and 420-660VAC
  • Selectable Operation Mode: Phase Angle or Burst Fire control
  • Selectable Control Input: 0-5VDC, 0-10VDC, 4-20mA
  • 50/60Hz Adaptive Operational Frequency function
  • 4-20mA input does not require an auxiliary power supply
  • LED multifunction status indicator
  • Contactor configuration with "Elevator" screw terminals
  • Optional overvoltage protection (built-in TVS diode)

Turck uprox3 Sensors w/ IO-Link

Turck is now offering its uprox3 sensor in an IO-Link-capable version. Turck’s uprox3 sensor line offers the longest sensing distances of all Factor 1 sensors on the market, and now coupled with IO-Link capabilities, allows for more flexibility and intelligence to be integrated into sensing applications.

With the use of the uprox® IO-link sensors, you reduce costs in new and existing applications. Easy configuration allows you to flexibly adapt the sensors to your needs. You can not only set the output functions and the sensing distances, but special functions are included and can be used whenever needed. Additionally, each adjustable switching distance can be run sequentially in combination with an IO-Link master. Also, the sensors include all standard uprox3 benefits such as Factor 1 with the longest sensing distances and an excellent magnetic field strength. The reduction of variants streamlines the ordering of the product, and also minimizes the storage and administrative costs.

In IO-Link mode, the sensor is operated on an IO-Link master. This enables access to all parameter and evaluation functions. The intelligent data retention with IO-Link 1.1 allows a sensor to be exchanged without having to reset parameters. The process data uprox3-IOL provides further analysis options such as application-specific switch points, temperature limits, etc., or an identification number. These can be used to identify 256 different nodes. The sensing of targets and their simultaneous identifica- tion can then be implemented with a single sensor.

Turck is initially offering four variants of uprox3 IO-Link: an M12, M18, and M30 barrel style, all in a chrome brass housing, as well as PTFE-coated variants for welding appli- cations. Additionally, a rectangular, CK40 style is also included in the series.

New Tools for Banner Engineering VE Smart Camera

The new Line Detect tool is included in the most recent release of Banner Engineering's Vision Manager software (version 1.2.1). This versatile tool measures distance and angles and can reliably find a best-fit line for critical gauging applications. Line Detect can also inspect for damage or flaws along the edge of a part.

Also new to Vision Manager 1.2.1, the Data Export option enables the export of tool specific results (pass/fail, length, etc.) over RS-232 or Ethernet. Users can customize ASCII data strings to support individual requirements of a PLC or PC. This builds on Vision Manager’s export capabilities for EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and Modbus/TCP.

Improvements have also been made to the visual feedback offered by Vision Manager. Users benefit from upgrades to the live image display as well as greater flexibility in how information and Regions of Interest (ROIs) can be viewed.
