NEXT GENERATION OF POGO® CONTACT TECHNOLOGY FOR SEMICONDUCTOR TEST UNVEILED AT SEMICON WEST

Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) Contact Solutions (CPG) introduced its revolutionary new line of Pogo contacts for Semiconductor Test at Semicon West in San Francisco. The new Zip™ Family of compliant contacts deploys unique patented designs featuring planar contact surfaces produced by traditional and new innovative test pin manufacturing processes, creating scalable test pitch products that yield optimal performance. The Zip Series is designed to meet today’s demanding test requirements and economics.

The Z Interconnect Pin, “Zip,” is available in three separate design configurations: Radial, Flat, and Hybrid. The Radial Series utilizes traditional machined 3D components; the Flat Series employs innovative 2D components; and the Hybrid combines both technologies, a flat contact for the interface board married with a radial contact for the DUT. With multiple plating options, high-performance, and value pricing, Zip delivers unparalleled flexibility for users.

Bud Fabian, CPG President, commented, “The three Zip Series are designed for interchangeability in the same test tool if desired. They can be mixed and matched in the initial test socket design and built or interchanged later as needed to address specific DUT contact needs or cost objectives. This versatility increases the Zip’s value proposition for our customers.” The Z pin is available today for .5, .8, and 1.0mm test pitches with 1.27, .4, and .3mm designs scheduled for a Q4 release.

Everett Charles Technologies, a subsidiary of Dover Corporation (NYSE: DOV), is a leading manufacturer of electrical test products and services, including semiconductor test products, bare-board automatic test systems, Pogo® test contacts, and bare and loaded PCB test fixtures. ECT manufacturing, service, and support facilities are ISO registered with locations throughout the Asia , the United States, and Europe. The company has been awarded numerous patents and participates actively in developing industry standards.

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
