Solder Barrier Pin Receptacles & Sockets with OFP® Knockout Bottom

Mill-Max Organic Fibre Plug® receptacles and sockets are discrete sockets for through-hole soldering into printed circuit boards. These open bottom receptacles are fitted with organic fibre plugs to prevent solder, paste or flux from contaminating the internal contact during the placing and soldering process. When the device/mating lead is plugged into the receptacle the OFP® is knocked out allowing the mating lead to pass through the fingers of the internal contact and make a reliable electrical connection.

14 sizes/styles are now available, 13 have standard tape & reel packaging. The advantage of tape & reel packaging for these receptacles is it permits through-hole components to be placed simultaneously with surface mount parts on pick-’n-place assembly lines – eliminating the need to hand place the receptacles in an additional manufacturing step. The OFP® barrier permits the sockets to be vacuum picked from the tape prior to placement in a hole in the circuit board.

The knock-out-bottom feature enables these sockets to be made relatively short compared to many similar receptacles. The reduced length provides two advantages: the receptacles can stand upright and stable in a carrier tape pocket and the protrusion through the PCB is minimal — especially important when working with SMT boards. The open bottom receptacle design eliminates the need to trim long device leads that would otherwise bottom out in a closed receptacle design and also makes them ideal for low profile board stacking applications via the ability to pass through.

The OFP® parts are available as discrete receptacles and can be supplied in bulk or on carrier tape,. per EIA-481 for industry standard pick and place machines.

All Mill-Max receptacles use a precision-machined brass housing with a press-fit beryllium copper “multi-finger” contact.

These are also available in strip sockets. 834 (Single Row) and 835 (Double Row) Series Pass-Through Sockets have a low .130” (3.30 mm) profile and will accept Ø.030” (.76 mm) round pin, as well as industry standard .025” (.64 mm) square pin headers.

All Mill-Max receptacles use a precision machined brass housing with a press-fit beryllium copper “multi-finger” contact (heat-treated BeCu is the best electrical spring contact material.)

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.

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…
