SMPM snap-on connector series has features and applications similar to its cousin SMP series, which is 30% bigger in size. Yet the very small size of SMPM interface makes it challenging to obtain good center contact captivation and retention using the traditional PTFE machined insulators.

Radiall is proud to announce a new ultra-miniature PEEK™ molded insulator, which has been implemented on most SMPM cable and receptacle connectors. This innovative insulator is less than 2mm (.08 in) in diameter. Its shape has been optimized using advanced simulation software to provide excellent RF performances up to 65 GHz.

PEEK™ is a polymer thermoplastic with outstanding mechanical and chemical resistance properties that are retained to high temperature. Because of its robustness, PEEK™ is used to make items used in demanding applications.

Radiall SMPM connectors using PEEK™ insulator are less subject to mechanical stress and overheating during soldering assembly process. Center contact captivation and retention is higher than with traditional machined PTFE insulators.

The SMPM product range includes plugs for .047 and .085 semi-rigid cable, PCB and panel receptacles, hermetic receptacles with integrated glass bead, fixed and spring-loaded adapters. Extraction tools are also available to disconnect right-angle plugs or adapters.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p


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 E
