FCI Develops High-Performance USB 3.0 Connector Technology, Supports 5 Gbps Data Rate

FCI, a leading manufacturer of connectors and interconnect systems, has released its new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connector that provides a significant performance enhancement versus USB 2.0 connectors. The highly reliable SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connector minimizes user-wait time by supporting a 5 Gbps data rate and providing a faster sync time, which is a 10x performance increase versus USB 2.0 connectors. The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connector is optimized for power efficiency and has the bandwidth and headroom required for Flash-based products and other emerging consumer and industrial data applications.

The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connector is backward compatible with the USB 2.0 connector to minimize connector form factor variations and maintain the extensive driver infrastructure, while preserving customer and component expectations.

Combining high-speed data transfer with superior power management of mass storage devices, the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connector improves rich-media device interaction in consumer electronics and audio/video applications.

“In new A/V technologies, Flash-based peripherals will require much higher data speed transfer rates, and the limitations of USB 2.0 connectors would prolong user wait times. The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connector’s advanced performance characteristics are ideal for many applications that require energy-efficiency and high-speed handling,” said Kevin Cheng, Product Manager.

The durable USB 3.0 connector allows for up to 3,500 mating cycles and features added pins for faster USB signal and to support wave soldering applications. The USB 3.0 connectors are colored blue on the interior to distinguish them from USB 2.0 connectors.

The halogen-free, RoHS-compliant USB 3.0 connector is available in two receptacle styles, right-angle and vertical mounting. Copper alloy contacts with a steel back shell and high thermoplastic resin housing provide the connector with an operating temperature range of -55ºC to +85ºC.

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…
