Molex Subsidiary, Temp-Flex, Announces New Microwave Coaxial Cables that Deliver Low Loss and Superior Bandwidth

Temp-Flex LLC, a subsidiary of Molex Incorporated, announced today the availability of microwave coaxial cables designed for high-bandwidth applications using proprietary processes. Temp-Flex low loss and ultra-low loss cables deliver faster speed and electrical performance in military and aerospace, defense, automatic test equipment and medical applications.

“Our flexible microwave and RF coaxial cables are engineered to meet or exceed the stringent requirements for a range of rugged industrial and military applications,” states Jeet Sanyal, engineering manager, Temp-Flex. “Customers trust Temp-Flex standard and enhanced coaxial cable solutions to deliver the reliability and performance they need – and faster, more competitive lead-times.”

Temp-Flex microwave coaxial cables are available with either a solid core fluoropolymer resin dielectric (low loss) or an air enhanced design with a fluoropolymer resin layer applied over dual monofilaments (ultra-low loss) around the center conductor for increased signal speed. High purity fluoropolymer resin offers a low dissipation factor and ensures a lower rate of energy loss. Highly consistent manufacturing processes are used to maintain tight mechanical tolerances yielding extremely stable electrical performance.

Additional benefits of Temp-Flex low and ultra-low loss microwave coaxial cable include:
  • Phase stability
  • Tight impedance tolerance 50 Ohms ± 1 Ohm
  • Tight time delay tolerance
  • FEP alternative to PTFE and ePTFE
  • Bandwidth potential up to 110GHz
  • Stability under dynamic conditions
Designed for superior monitoring and control of radar, military vehicles, satellite, space, missile, RF ablation and test and measurement equipment, Temp-Flex coaxial cable solutions are insulated with a fluoropolymer dielectric. A helically wrapped silver-plated copper flat wire shield and braid are applied to all cable sizes to achieve superior shielding effectiveness. The standard solid core (low loss) construction coaxial cable delivers 70 percent velocity of propagation (VOP), while the air enhanced dual monofilament design (ultra-low loss) achieves 85 to 88 percent velocity of propagation and improved insertion loss at high frequencies.

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 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.

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…
