Parker Hannifin Corp. introduced its XM Series Inline Valve for multiple industrial applications in a variety of pneumatic markets. This 1/8", 2-position, single solenoid, spring return 3-way or 4-way valve has AC or DC operating voltages. The 12V DC and 24V DC coils are rated for mobile voltage operation. The 3-way valves can function as normally open or normally closed valves.
Southco introduced its F6 hinge line that includes concealed, removable-style hinges that enhance user options for durable and corrosion-resistant performance, along with concealed mounting and tool-free door removal. Removable and retractable hinge-pin options simplify door removal for easier access, while all-metal designs in a range of sizes provide more choices for strength and durability in a variety of enclosures and industrial equipment.
Sullins Electronics announced the expansion of their edgecard connector portfolio to include a high-temperature, dual-readout series that accepts 0.093" (2.36 mm) thick daughtercards. These edgecard connectors are engineered for high-temperature applications such as straight and right angle card extenders. Made of high-density dielectric materials, parts can be ordered to withstand 150°C continual heat.
QA Technology Co. announced the expansion of its integraMate hyperboloid contact and connector product family with the addition of 1.5 mm size contacts and a 3-pin power connector. The 1.5 mm size has a current rating in excess of 12A, and it incorporates a 12-wire hyperboloid cage. The core technology is a hyperboloid wire cage contact design that offers a low mating force, high cycle life and superior resistance to shock and vibration.
Molex, Inc. announced its HD Mezz and SEARAY board-to-board connectors for applications with high pin-count devices on mezzanine cards or module printed circuit boards (PCB). They provide multiple benefits on personality or expansion cards for use in networking and telecommunication equipment, mid- and high-range computers, medical equipment, military products and industrial controllers. These connectors simplify PCB routing without sacrificing performance, and they provide advanced electrical and mechanical features.
Master Bond introduced its LTX-117G low cost, electrically conductive, water-based adhesive, sealant and coating. It is a one-part, UV stable latex adhesive where the electrical conductivity is achieved by the incorporation of non-metallic graphite filler. This polymer system dries by water evaporation at ambient temperatures to provide cost effective coatings with controlled electrical properties, including use in ESD anti-static systems. It has a service temperature of -60°F to +250°F.
FCI enlarged its high density Compact D series to 62 contact connectors in straight receptacle versions to meet the need for higher density connectors and as a complement to its press-fit D-sub range in 78 contacts. Provided with press-fit terminations, this connector helps to avoid the cost and time of an additional wave solder process. It is compatible with any PCB thickness starting from 1.6 mm, an advantage for thick backplanes.
Binder-USA announced the addition of shielded connectors with screw termination to its Series 768 M8 Euro-style connectors. These connectors allow for shielded connections that protect analog and sensitive signals from EMI interference in industrial Ethernet or Fieldbus networks. The shielding of the connectors is simplified with the use of an iris-shaped spring.
Phoenix Contact announced its PLC-RELAY, a high-current terminal block relay with plug-in SPDT contacts for applications requiring a nominal current rating up to 10A or those that need to improve the electrical life of the contacts. Measuring 14 mm wide, the relay’s contacts are larger than a standard 6 mm terminal block relay. These contacts help to extend service intervals two to three times longer than the standard relay, while adding security for uncertain load conditions at the same time.They are a reliable alternative to ice cube relays, and they feature a plug-in bridging
Taiyo Yuden USA, Inc. announced its model CKP2520 multilayer chip power inductors that achieve better performance compared to the company’s previous CKP series parts.
