New Versatile Splashproof Micro USB Connector Ideal For Trendy Consumer Products

As consumer products are getting thinner and smaller, they are becoming increasingly vulnerable to water and dust. For micro USB connectors, therefore, being able to support the devices with splashproof and dustproof features is no less important than being compatible in size and shape. TE Connectivity today launched a splashproof micro USB connector designed to seal gaps around the opening and inside the connector shell. As a result, the new connector brings the best protection and optimizes user experience.

“ICs and components like microprocessors, speakers, LCD panels and PCBs in consumer products are becoming more and more delicate. Even a small drop of water or a small dust particle could impair an expensive device. For today's modern and multifunction products, micro USB connectors create one of the largest openings on the surface, even in the connector shell, there are some  large gaps - all of which increase the risk of water or dust intrusion," said Egbert Stellinga, global product manager of I/O connectors at Consumer Devices, TE Connectivity.  "This versatile splashproof micro USB connector is TE's response to market demand and marks the next step in TE's state-of-the-art micro USB connector portfolio. It offers the possibility to protect mobile devices from being damaged by water or dust intrusion, and thus helps further protect our valuable mobile devices."

With a dimension of 8.2 x 5 x 3.8mm, TE's new splashproof micro USB connector is only slightly higher than that of its non-splash-proof counterparts, while the protection against water and dust may greatly reduce cost of maintenance or post-sale service. Completely sealed IP 54 phone can be designed using this connector with the rugged molded connector front that helps seal the connector against the device shell. The new splashproof micro USB accepts A and B type plugs, and supports normal USB and USB on the Go. Conforming to micro USB 2.0 specification, it also supports high-speed data and power transmission, while the SMD solder bracket provides additional strength from underneath the connector.

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

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 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.
