Molex Expands Customization, Modification and Extensions for Mini-Fit® Portfolio and KK® System

Molex Incorporated offers an expanded range of customization, modification and extension (CME) capabilities on variations of its Mini-Fit® product offerings and KK® system of “building block” connectors for small pitch, high current, high density applications. CME versions of the Mini-Fit and KK interconnects feature multiple power, circuit count, configuration and size parameters for optimal flexibility in wire-to-wire, wire-to-board, and board-to-board standard offerings and blind mating applications in mid-range power products.

“In an effort to better serve unique and dynamic customer specifications, our global product team has developed a full range of value-added customizations, modifications and extensions for the popular and proven Mini-Fit and KK power connector solutions,” states Corey Schroeder, product manager, Molex. “Depending on the application specifications, a customer’s unique requirements can be achieved swiftly and economically, with only minor tooling modifications or alterations—and minimal to no tooling costs.”

Mini-Fit CME capabilities include, but are not limited to:
  •     Special polarization to differentiate duplicate circuit sizes
  •     Custom molds for housings and receptacles
  •     Longer tails for thicker printed circuit boards
  •     Latch-less, dual side latching, slide-n-lock
  •     First-mate, last-break contacts
  •     Custom panel mounts
  •     Colored housings
Suitable for power applications up to 13.0 Amps per circuit, Mini-Fit interconnect products are available in single-row or dual-row, 2- to 24-circuit options, with multiple plating and material selections. Other core attributes include an operating temperature of -40 to +105 degrees C, fully isolated terminals, positive housing locks, low-engagement forces and polarized housings and receptacles. Mini-Fit product lines include Mini-Fit Jr.™, blind mate interface, compliant pin interface and H2O sealed connectors.

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…

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 power…

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.
