Quick disconnect sensor-cordset combination

Turck has expanded its range of FM approved 12, 18 and 30 mm 3-wire DC barrel sensor and cordset combinations. Now, quick disconnect sensors may be used in Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D environments when equipped with a Turk lokfast guard. Turck sensors with potted-in cable for use with conduit are also FM approved for these locations.

Shielded cordsets

Turck is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100% cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

Modular RFID interface

The BL ident RFID product portfolio has been expanded with the release of a simple RFID (RFID-S) slice for its BL20 modular I/O system. Each RFID-S slice contains two channels of RFID. Additional RFID slices, as well as traditional discrete and analog I/O slices, may be added to the system, making it the only product on the market that allows this combination on the same node on the network, according to Turck.

Intrinsically safe pressure sensor

The PT4400 pressure sensor series is designed for intrinsically safe locations. The series utilises a media-isolated stainless steel diaphragm for use in pneumatics, water management, hydrogen storage, hydraulic systems, oil and gas, HVAC/R and industrial OEM equipment.

Compact ultrasonic sensor

Turck has introduced an ultrasonic sensor in a compact Q12 style housing that achieves a 40 cm sensing range with a small 2.5 cm blind zone. The small profile of the sensor allows it to be mounted in narrow spaces, like those found in packaging applications.

S12 connectors

The 4- and 5-wire S12 Quick-Connect connectors are designed to expedite installation and mate to any fully threaded M12 on the market, regardless of the manufacturer. These connectors employ advanced technology to simply attach to and detach from any M12 connection — and users can clearly hear and feel the click of the S12 Quick-Connect to know that it is fully attached. Using the S12 Quick-Connect provides a cost-effective method for component installation, including connecting numerous junction boxes where installation time can be reduced by 85%.

Profinet cordsets

Turck has introduced a 4-wire Profinet cordset line that has been developed to provide plug-and-play connectivity for applications using Profinet protocols. Profinet, the fastest industrial ethernet I/O network, is compatible with existing fieldbus systems and the only network that can accomplish a line topology — especially suitable for long conveyor systems. These cordsets connect to Turck’s BL67 ethernet gateways for Profinet — which can be connected to up to 32 I/O modules per gateway — to allow smooth integration into current fieldbus structures.

Capacitive sensor

The BCF10 capacitive sensor’s small size makes it more flexible for mounting in level applications and it has the ability to detect liquids with high concentrations of chlorides, such as soaps and cleaners. Turck’s noise immunity technology has been retooled for a flat pack housing.

DeviceNet gateway

Turck has expanded its line of BL20 economy modules with the release of a DeviceNet gateway. This addition augments Turck’s current PROFIBUS-DP and CANopen gateways for the BL20 economy system.

19-pin connectors

Turck has expanded its 28.6 mm minifast connector line with the addition of the 19-pin connector. The 19-pin minifast connector is rated for up to 300 V, 4 A per pin, and is a solution for applications requiring an even more robust, cost-effective solution than a traditional 19-pin M23 connector — including material handling in manufacturing and packaging applications.

Magnetic cylinder position sensor

Turck has added a compact WIM45 magnetic field sensor to its line of cylinder position sensors. The WIM45 provides a direct analog output for determining the position of a piston magnet on all types of pneumatic cylinders, delivering greater accuracy than indirect analog monitoring with potentiometers or linear position systems.

Moulded cordsets

Turck now has the ability to mould its 6- and 8-pin M23 powerfast connectors. These connectors may also be completely shielded by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nuts.

Plastic detecting sensors

Turck has introduced the BCC capacitive sensor series, specifically designed to provide accurate level detection in the plastics industry. The BCC series features good EMC and ESD immunity, allowing the sensors to reliably detect the level of plastic pellets in a hopper while withstanding environmental interference.

Weld nut sensors

Turck has introduced magnetic-inductive sensors for efficient and economic detection of weld nuts. These sensors use signal attenuation to reliably detect ferromagnetic components such as nuts, bushings and spacer sleeves and ensure these necessary components are present before robotic welding occurs — with no additional software or electronics required.

Analog interface modules

Turck has introduced the IMS interface module, designed to provide a cost-effective solution for analog signal conversion. The IMS interface module measures 6.2 mm wide, featuring one of the smallest profiles on the market today.
