New Push-Push SIM Connector Ideal For Multi-Card and Thinner Mobile Devices

In response to the surging demand for multi-card mobile devices, TE Connectivity (TE) today launched its latest push-push SIM connector, featuring dual-slanted contacts that enhance stable connection and a super low profile design that enables sleeker product design – ideal for handset, tablet, personal GPS, laptop, ultrabook and server applications.

According to a market survey by GfK Market Research in 2011, multi-SIM use is set to grow exponentially, especially in newer and more emerging markets. “The multiple SIM facilitates the consumer-lead desire to utilize different tariffs throughout the week, depending on time and usage,” the report said [1].

"With its innovative design and quality construction, the new push-push SIM connector is our solution to the growing market demand for multi-card devices," said Youichi Kashiwa, product general manager, TE Consumer Devices. “TE has worked closely with leading mobile device manufacturers in the development and launch of this new product." The smooth push-push mechanism makes it easier for users to eject a SIM card, while the dual slanted contact design helps avoid contact jams from hooking housing components underneath and provides better mating performance during drop test.”

On the other hand, TE’s new push-push SIM connector is an ideal solution for slim mobile devices. The super low profile design provides connector height of only 1.4mm, which is 25% thinner than existing products and significantly helps reduce the height of end devices.

Consumers also yearn for a more polished user experience. TE's new push-push SIM connector features a card detect switch that enables hot swap and a wider card slot compatible with all SIM cards. In addition, the connector’s half-moon shape opening strengthens EMI protection. Extra open space at the front side of the housing helps prevent finger cuts when inserting or extracting the card.

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 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.
