0.3MM Pitch Flexible Printed Circuit Connectors Address Diversified Customer Needs

In view of increasingly diversified customer needs in the consumer devices market, TE Connectivity (TE) has developed two new types of 0.3mm pitch Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) connectors to enrich its FPC connector product family.

The two new types are: a 0.3mm pitch FPC connector with a box shaped, back-flip lock actuator and a lower contact point; and a 0.3mm pitch FPC connector standard-size back-flip lock actuator and an upper contact point.

The most important feature that both new types share is that they are back-flip lock connector types, which accommodate pick and place nozzles, are easy to actuate and have better printed circuit retention.

The unique feature of TE's back-flip lock connector type with a box-shaped actuator is that the robust actuator not only better protects the connector but it also makes it easier to operate.

The exclusive advantage of TE's back-flip lock connector type with a standard-size actuator is that it boasts an upper contact point, which gives customers more flexible design opportunity in that they are not limited in their cable orientation.

All TE 0.3mm pitch FPC connectors are RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.

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 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.

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…
