Molex's Micro-Fit 3.0 interconnects offer users a low- to mid-range power-distribution solution with a high current in a small footprint. Based on a 3 mm centreline, the product is available in wire-to-wire and wire-to-board configurations, SMT and through-hole processing, 2 to 24 circuits and single- and dual-row versions.
Cable assemblies are the core components for the most critical connections. In many instances, there is an option of choosing between field-assembled cables or overmoulded cables. For some designs, the choice is clear cut, for others not so much. This article explores the design differences between moulded cable assemblies and field-terminated cables.
The world's 14 billion online electronic devices, such as set-top boxes, modems, printers and game consoles, waste around US$80 billion each year because of inefficient technology, according to the International Energy Agency.
As Brazil hosts the world's greatest sporting competition this month and also prepares for the 2016 Summer Olympics, what will be the impact of the World Cup on the connector market?
Rojone's new RD5 CNC Bending machine has significantly increased the company's capability to produce semi-rigid cable assemblies and delay lines.
Hirose has developed the robust DF62 Series slim inline connectors, designed to take advantage of small/confined spaces. They come equipped with a locking structure that gives the user two lock completion indicators - a tactile click and a visual check of the socket lock through the plug slit.
Easy to install and upgrade, the Acti 9 series from Schneider Electric delivers safety and efficiency to machine and panel builders and maintenance engineers. The high-performance modular system comprises low-voltage devices including circuit breakers, contactors, industrial switches and energy meters.
The Network Technologies XTENDEX ST-2FOHDMI-SC50 optical fibre HDMI extender can extend HDMI signals up to 300 m using two-stranded multimode SC fibre-optic cables. Two extenders can be cascaded to reach up to 600 m.
RF coaxial connectors have been around for so long that their beginnings are lost in the mists of time. Most people, however, are familiar with the traditional 50 Ω coax plug that went into the back of the family television set.
TE Connectivity's Cloudsplitter connector system delivers Cat5e data performance and up to 250 W of DC power in a single cable, integrating eight signal and two power positions to provide a compact single solution that helps standardise inventory.
HARTING's high-temperature connector family, the Han HighTemp Series, enables the reliable transmission of signals and power at temperatures up to 200°C in industrial environments.
The Phase 3 Powersafe connector series offers good ingress protection. The sequential mating box is IP54-rated before the Powersafe connectors - which are IP67-rated - are installed. Once the connectors are installed, the complete assembly is IP67-rated. If an IP67 rating is required to withstand exposure to wet conditions at all times, Phase 3 recommends surrounding the sequential mating box with an IP-rated electrical enclosure.
Molex's Plastic Substrate Interconnect (PSI) provides a low-profile interconnect solution for the solid-state lighting industry when used with an integrated Pico-EZmate header in select LED arrays. The product delivers power while providing a simple and reliable solderless connection to LED CoB arrays for lighting applications.
