Protect Equipment With WireCrafters RackBack Pallet Rack Backing Panels

Protect workers and equipment from falling items with WireCrafters RackBack pallet rack backing panels. RackBack wire mesh panels bolt directly to the back of your existing pallet rack uprights creating a sturdy barrier between stored items and the ground below. RackBack pallet rack backing panels prevent spillage, while also stopping items from falling into aisle ways.

The durable all welded angle frame wire mesh panels give constant protection from falling items. RackBack pallet rack backing panels prevent spillage, while also stopping items from falling into aisle ways, therefore protecting personnel while containing inventory. Quick and easy to install, the WireCrafters RackBack panels provide additional safety and secure stored items from accidental falling or shifting.

The RackBack Pallet Rack Backing System is made of 2" x 2" x 10" gauge steel welded wire mesh, welded into a 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" x 13 gauge steel angle frame. Panels have pre-drilled mounting holes on six inch centers and are provided with flush mount or offset brackets to allow for pallets that overhang the beams.

DF-G3 Long-Range Fiber Amplifier: Increased Sensing Power For Longer Detection

The DF-G3 analog output long-range fiber amplifiers provide world-class long-range detection. 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.


  • The DF-G3 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
  • Easy to read dual digital displays show both signal level and threshold simultaneously
  • Cross-talk avoidance functions allows seven inspections in dense sensing point applications
  • Energy efficient light resistance enables stable detection in industrial lighting environments
  • High power amplifier with small core fibers enables precise positioning of small components

New Stainless Steel Barrel-Mounted Sensors From Banner: Suitable Where Enhanced Chemical Resistance Is Required!

The new M18-4 series is a heavy-duty, chemically resistant 18 mm metal barrel sensor that features a robust IP69K rated 316 stainless steel housing suitable for many industrial environments where enhanced chemical resistance is a requirement.


  • Complete family of sensors, all housed in the popular 18 mm threaded metal barrel
  • Chemically robust stainless steel sensors for wash down applications
  • Robust housing is sealed against fluid ingress and chemical attack
  • Powerful and bright visible red emitter beam for easy alignment and setup
  • Greatly increased sensing range in all models
  • Highly visible output and dual-function power and stability indicators 

M18-4 Fixed-Field And Diffuse Sensors Lighting Resistance:

  • High-efficiency factory lighting can generate light pulses which confuse some sensors employing only basic pulse counting demodulation methods.
  • The new M18-4 sensors will remain OFF when no target is present, and reliably turn ON when the target is present even in the presence of energy efficient lighting.
  • The M18-4 fixed-field and diffuse sensor's electronic ASIC includes robust cross talk avoidance.

Red Lion's ProducTVity Station: Ready-To-Deploy Visual Management System

Red Lion's ProducTVity Station is a ready-to-deploy plant floor visual management system that displays real-time Key Performance Indicator (KPI) data and Andon messages on large televisions to drive efficiency. This visual management system lets you create sophisticated production scoreboards using standard, consumer-grade LCD, LED or plasma TVs.

The ProducTVity Station's built-in data logger with timestamping can record key performance indicators, as well as Andon events for later review or analysis. Data can be acquired from any connected devices and compiled into CSV-formatted files, where it can be stored, displayed, emailed or automatically synchronized with an FTP or Microsoft SQL server.

Key Specifications:

    • Ready-to-deploy plant floor visualization system
    • Create Hi-definition key-performance and Andon message boards
    • Supports up to 16 CS-Series modules to accept digital and analog signals
    • 32-Bit floating point math allows creation of virtually any key performance indicator
    • Protocol conversion feature converts numerous protocols simultaneously
    • Independent serial ports provide virtually unlimited integration methods
    • Alarm notifications can be sent via email or text messages
