CONEC has developed the rugged M12x1 X-code connectors for industrial communications applications. Part of the Sensor Actor Line, the M12x1 X-code connectors are designed for integration within modern automation solutions where universal communication is necessary for connecting a number of different networks within a single system.
Let's face it: Robots are better than people.They’re more dependable than humans (i.e. no sick days), they’re usually cheaper, and they don’t complain. The downside is pretty obvious as well, at least with the primitive robots we have today:
The EXPFL-31 Explosion Proof Halogen Flashlight is a compact and highly durable waterproof lighting solution that offers hazardous location compliance combined with the ability to withstand submersion to 100 feet. Extremely durable and powered by standard AA batteries, this waterproof halogen flashlight provides reliable and portable HAZLOC illumination in an affordable package.
A new "nano machine shop" that shapes nanowires and ultrathin films could represent a future manufacturing method for tiny structures with potentially revolutionary properties. The structures might be "tuned" for applications ranging from high-speed electronics to solar cells
In the field of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), Parabolic Trough Collector (PTC) technology is one of the most widely used, and Dunkermotor's new Bifurcated Wormetary gearmotors are designed to meet that application's requirements, while offering several unique benefits.

Murata Americas introduced its newest member of the HCR (Hybrid Crystal Resonator) family, the ± 50ppm XRCGB-F-N series. Murata's continuous development of the HCR family has resulted in this new tighter frequency tolerance, further expanding the value proposition HCR offers to design engineers.
OSD Displays has introduced a seven-inch WVGA 800 x RGB X 480 TFT with 500 Nit backlight utilizing long life 40,000-hour LED’s. This new seven-inch TFT is fully RoHS compliant. The OSD070T0680-29 offers a 250:1 contrast ratio and supports
GIGAVAChas introduced a new DPDT 20kV relay. The G53WF is ideal for applications requiring high continuous carry current, up to 150A, as well as high power RF circuits that require low signal loss. The combination of massive copper contacts and a vacuum dielectric provide a low and stable 12 milliohm contact resistance which means low voltage drop in DC circuits and low signal loss in RF circuits.
AutomationDirect’s ultrasonic sensor offering now includes additional18mm round plastic DC models. The UK1 series are IP67 rated sensors with a 15 to 30VDC operating range and are fitted with an M12 quick-disconnect
Milford, CT – EAO Corporation of Milford, CT USA, a premier global supplier of Human Machine Interface (HMI) Systems and Components, introduces the Series 51 Stop Switch. These units are ideal for space sensitive applications often found within:
WAGO Corporation’s 2060 Series pushbutton SMD-Terminal Block gains a 600-V/9A two-pole unit. The high-voltage two-pole unit is positioned to simplify design and expedites manufacturing — specify and automatically place only one component for high-output LED devices such as roadway lights.
Nikola Tesla is arguably one of the most underappreciated scientists in history. He was a very cool, brilliant guy, but money wasn’t really his strong suit. He built a laboratory called the Wardenclyffe Tower in Shoreham, New York, which he lost due to his financial problems. The tower that Wardenclyffe was named for was destroyed in 1917, 15 years after it was built.
Cambridge, Mass. – August 23, 2012 – Applied physicists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have created an ultrathin, flat lens that focuses light without imparting the distortions of conventional lenses.At a mere 60 nanometers thick, the flat lens is essentially two-dimensional, yet its focusing power approaches the ultimate physical limit set by the laws of diffraction.
Researchers at the University of Leicester have developed a new form of digital microscope which can create an image 100 times faster than regular equipment – without losing image quality.The team of scientists have developed a new type of confocal microscope that produces high-resolution images at very fast speeds.
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced the G10 safety module – said to be the world’s smallest AS-Interface safety module with IP67 protection. These safety modules are positioned as a Safety at Work solution that reduces the complexity and cost of any safety installation. Additionally, the design supports
WECO has expanded its SMarTconn family of surface mount terminal blocks to include a 5.0 mm pitch SMT screw terminal block with fixed terminal bodies and an inclined tower for wire entry and screwdriver.
