This is the final part of a series of three articles that aim to help readers better understand the critical concepts and parameters that must be considered for high-speed connector design.
HEYCo-molded Liquid Tight Break-Thru Plugs are co-moulded and elastomer parts that function as liquid-tight plugs with an IP67/68 rating. Round wire, cable or tubing will easily pierce the plug to convert it for use as a liquid-tight bushing due to the flexibility of the TPE material used in the plug.
HEYlock locking IEC power cords eliminate accidental and vibration disconnects. They are universally compatible, so there is no mating plug or receptacle required. They are designed for retrofit as a plug-and-play replacement for existing power cords.
Heyco-Tite Multi-Hole Break-Thru Liquid Tight Cordgrips offer the flexibility to use fewer of the available holes while still providing a liquid-tight seal around the conductors. For easy installation of conductors, external dimples indicate the presence of an underlying through channel.
This is the second in a series of three articles that aim to help readers better understand the critical concepts and parameters that must be considered for high-speed connector design.
Heyco-Flex VI is a flexible, PVC/metal liquid-tight electrical conduit (LFMC). It has a PVC-jacketed, continuously interlocked, hot-dipped, zinc-galvanised steel core for good crush and corrosion resistance.

TURCK has announced an expansion to the YB2 line of compact disconnect splitters with LEDs. The LEDs provide a visual indication of when power is applied and when one or both discrete signals are present.
Amphenol RF's TNC and Type N cable plugs and jacks have been engineered for harsh conditions without compromising their performance. The 50 Ω ARC rugged connectors come in standard and reverse-polarity versions and are sealed at IP67 levels in unmated and mated conditions.
Positronic has produced the WCBD Series, a waterproof version of the Combo-D mixed power/signal connector family. The product provides the ability to mix power and signal in a single connector body capable of up to 40 A per size 8 contact.
The Molex Ditto range of wire-to-wire interconnects and pre-assembled harnesses provides an alternative to plug-and-receptacle power connector systems. The devices are suitable for HVAC equipment; home security and appliances; and solid-state lighting applications including displays, signage and transportation lighting.
Erich Reichenbach, founder, Reichenbach International Inc., offers tips on how to specify connectors for drones, which require versatile, lightweight and reliable components that perform in demanding environments.
The need for high-speed connections has expanded from office environments to remote and sometimes outdoor implementations, including those for the military. In this article, ODU looks at the rugged high-speed data connector requirements to consider for such applications.
