Extended Range of SMT Spring Contacts

Harwin, the leading hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, has expanded its EZ-BoardWare range of PCB hardware products with nine new EZ-Spring Contacts. Also known as Spring Fingers or Grounding Contacts, these devices are designed for easy assembly onto PCBs, and are used as grounding or shielding contacts, in contact with metal frames or shields. Suitable for both wiping and sliding action, the individual clips are supplied in tape and reel packaging for automated placement, and reduce manufacturing costs by eliminating time-consuming secondary assembly operations.

A significant addition to Harwin’s existing range RFI/EMI spring contacts, the new devices are available in a variety of different styles. Uncompressed heights of between 1.7mm and 7.0mm provide excellent design flexibility, and good spring properties provide excellent electrical connection/grounding to be made between a PCB and various other electronic components - other PCBs, speakers, fans, aerials, shields etc – even if the equipment is subject to vibration. A variety of plating finishes, including gold and tin are offered.

Comments Product Manager, Paul Gillam: “These EZ- Spring Contacts take up minimal space on a PCB and are mechanically strong, capable of providing a good electrical connection that can be easily mated and separated many times. More, they provide a low cost solution being auto-placeable by industry-standard equipment.”

EZ- Spring Contacts are suitable for use in virtually all industry sectors across a wide range of products including mobile and smart phones, sat navs, MP3 players, cameras and video systems, tablet PCs, laptops, PCs, brown and white goods, medical and industrial equipment.

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…
