High Reliability 3-Row Datamate Connectors from Harwin Now Available off the Shelf

Popular high reliability and high performance, 3-row Datamate connectors from Harwin, the leading hi-rel connector and SMT board hardware manufacturer, are now available from stock – ‘Commercial Off the shelf’ (COTS). Stocked in 5 different configurations of PCB and cable variants and in 6 standard ‘most popular’ sizes from 18 to 96 ways, the 2mm pitch, 3A per contact connectors are ideal for use in board to board or cable to board applications where a high number of contacts is required in a small space. The 3 row design provides a smaller PCB footprint saving real estate on the PCB. The compact cable version saves space within the equipment.

Comments Product Manager, Graham Cunningham: “Eliminating the lead time problems often associated with special ‘made to order’ products and enabling a cost saving over special design products. These new standard 3-row Datamate connectors are well suited for use in many markets, including Industrial, Medical and in particular the Aerospace & Military market where ‘Commercial off the Shelf’ (COTS) products are preferred to bespoke designs for cost and lead time reasons.”

A high density connector system, 3-row Datamate connectors from Harwin feature up to 96 high performance signal contacts in standard sizes of 18, 27, 36, 54, 60 and 96 signal contacts arranged in 3 rows. Designed for mating with 22 AWG and 24 – 28 AWG wire sizes, the devices are available with vertical or horizontal PCB tails.

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 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…
