V-Lock, wire-bail and clamp systems have proven successful in preventing the accidental disconnection of power cords from inlets according to IEC 60320. However, these systems are only available for C14 and C20 appliance inlets. Schurter has developed a cord retention system with specially adapted retaining clips for C8 type inlets. The clips fit the company’ series 2576 flange mount and 2578 snap-in mount inlets.
element14 is stocking TE Connectivity passives, comprising power, precision and thick film resistors for applications in power supplies, industrial, instrumentation, automation and control. The portfolio of over 13,500 products includes 3000 recent products such as resistors, potentiometers, filters for EMC/RFI suppression and inductors.
Schurter now offers two connector types - 6100 and 5707 - in a version with a sealing kit which guarantees IP54 protection to the cord connectors. The Power Entry Module 5707 contains an IEC style C14 or C18 appliance inlet, one- or two-pole fuse holders and a standard or medical line filter.
Anchorage Group’s conduit clamps, cable clips and saddles are manufactured from a variety of materials to suit most application. The group produces copper saddles, stainless steel saddles and galvanised saddles of varying thicknesses for light duty through to extreme environments.
Mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, have become a disruptive technology that is shaking up the norms of system architecture. Traditional methods of introducing power and managing I/O are undergoing changes that are having major implications for traditional connectors. Read on to find out how.
The Spec Pak mini 3-pole connector, from Anderson Power Products, is a small, IP68, sealed connector UL rated to carry up to 22 A per contact at 600 V.
The ecoAmp high-power Kelvin contactor is a solution for high-power applications of 1000+ amperes. All typical packages and modules for power applications are covered by the ecoAmp, including MOSFETs, drivers, IGBTs, power modules and power packages such as TO, SO and DIP.
The Amphenol’s RJ and USB field series of connectors comprises standard RJ45 and USB connectors embedded into rugged waterproof circular military connector housings primarily from the MIL-C-26482 or MIL-DTL-38999 series.
Fibre offers a number of specific advantages over copper interfaces, including: much-reduced attenuation and signal distortion over long distances; greatly increased bandwidth; immunity from EMI/ESD; much-reduced cable bulk and weight; reduced latency; no electrical shock hazard or ground loop potential; and greater data security.
The IE-CFK-05 DIN rail-mount cable strain relief provides support and relief for ethernet cables once they are attached to industrial switches. This support reduces cable fatigue and helps improve the longevity of the connection point at the switch.
