Molex Launches Hand-Held Wire Crimp Pull-Force Tester, the First Portable Version for the Global Market

Molex Incorporated today announced its Hand-Held Wire Crimp Pull-Force Tester, a manual, hand-operated digital pull tester that delivers accurate pull-force readings required to verify crimp quality. Ideal for contract manufacturers and harness houses, the Hand-Held Wire Crimp Pull-Force Tester from Molex measures accurate pull strengths on a wide range of crimped terminals and wires, providing consistent verification of crimp pull force and reducing potential quality issues. Molex will showcase the product in booth 2454 at the International BoatBuilders’ (IBEX) Exhibition, October 2 – 4, 2012 Kentucky Exposition Center, Louisville, Kentucky.

“Our Hand-Held Wire Crimp Pull-Force Tester can be used in any situation requiring a portable solution to verify crimp quality, including applications in the automotive, commercial, contract manufacturing, design/engineering facilities and industrial marketplaces,” said Bob Grenke, product manager, Molex. For marine instrumentation manufacturing, it is an ideal tool due to its portability. “Many of the marine manufacturing facilities have large factory floor footprints with multiple departments responsible for ensuring quality. Multiple stationary pull force testers could be required; this portable tool can allow marine manufacturers the ability to reduce their capital equipment investments for their quality processes with one portable tool,” said Grenke.

The Hand-Held Wire Crimp Pull-Force Tester from Molex comes standard with both a wheel-type clamp featuring multiple slot sizes for wire diameters up to 6.35mm and a clamp-style holder for open-barrel products. The manual hand-cycle lever automatically grips the wire, providing an accurate measurement of the crimp pull strength on a wide range of wire sizes and terminals including crimped, soldered or solderless. It comes with multiple power plugs and a digital output that displays measurement settings in pound force (lbf), kilogram force (kgf) and newton (N), making the Hand-Held Wire Crimp Pull-Force Tester ideal for global use. It is shipped with AC rechargeable adapters for 120 and 230V AC power supplies and a calibration certificate (NIST).

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.
