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.
