Harwin Launches New Range of Coin Cell Battery Retainers

Harwin, the leading hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, has expanded its EZ-BoardWare range of PCB hardware products with four new coin cell holders. As with all the EZ-BoardWare products, the EZ Coin Cell Holders - which cover battery sizes BR1225/CR1225 and BR2032/CR2032 (12.5 and 20.0mm diameter) - are designed to reduce manufacturing costs by eliminating time-consuming secondary assembly operations.

The new parts include a single-piece SMD holder designed to allow 20.0mm diameter by 3.25mm thick coin cells to be easily and securely connected to the PCB. Manufactured in phosphor bronze and tin plated, these products are available on tape and reel packaging, ideally suiting them to automatic placement systems. Also newly launched are three contact/insulator style products, two of which are low profile, surface mounted products available in tape and reel, while the other is a departure from the rest of the EZ-Boardware range, being a space-saving, through-board (vertical) mount device rather than an SMD.

Comments Product Manager, Paul Gillam: “Like all Harwin’s innovative EZ-BoardWare family of PCB hardware, the EZ Coin Cell Holders increase manufacturing flexibility, reduce manufacturing costs, save space and improve in-field maintenance. They are mechanically strong, yet facilitate easy battery removal and minimise installed cost. Typical applications include on-board power supplies to drive memory circuits, across a broad range of markets from consumer electronics through industrial and control systems to the Mil/Aero arena.”

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.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
