Molex offers the DDR4 miniDIMM vertical, SMT socket with and without center fork lock

Achieve ultimate PCB space-savings in enterprise computing and networking memory applications with the industry’s first compact DDR4 miniDIMM Socket from Molex.

The JEDEC standard 0.60 mm pitch sockets are used in small form-factor PCs and small form-factor servers including 1U and blade servers as well as high reliability routers for networking. Molex has also added angled and right angle versions in standard and reverse configurations to its existing range of vertical MiniDIMM sockets.

Molex anticipates the MiniDIMM module to be widely adopted, especially in applications requiring ECC in high reliability equipment. Similar modules can also be used in vertical and angled connectors using DIMM-style latching for PCs and servers.

Features and Benefits      
  • Small form-factor design (approximately 2/3 smaller than standard DDR4 DIMM sockets)
  • Metal grips on housing towers (patent pending)
  • Latches that can withstand at least 25 mating cycles
  • Profiled contacts with high normal force
  • Designed to withstand two reflow cycles
  • Pick-and-place cap option
  • Maximizes space savings for tight-spaced memory applications
  • Reduce shock or vibration to mounted memory module during transit
  • Offers high durability in mission-critical applications
  • Provides excellent contact reliability
  • Ensures optimal performance under heat
  • For automated processing
  • Data/Computing
  • High-end computing
  • Personal computers
  • RAID/Storage
  • Telecommunications/Networking
  • Infrastructure

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.

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…
