Board-to-Board Connectors for the Industry

Phoenix Contact presents a newly developed series of board-to-board connectors with 0.8 and 1.27mm pitch. Both product families are ideally suited for the device-internal connection of several printed circuit boards.

Artesyn High Density 250 Watt Open Frame Medical Power Supply

Capable of delivering 250 W with forced-air cooling and 155 W with natural convection, the CPS250-M series follows the industry standard 2X4 inch form factor (50.8 X 101.6 mm) and is just 1.29 inches high (32.7 mm). The CPS250-M series offers 93.5% typical efficiency, 2x MOPP Type BF ready and EN60601 medical approval.

HARTING ix Industrial® - Ethernet Interface

HARTING ix Industrial offer a potential replacement for conventional RJ45 connection, taking up 70% less space than RJ45 with more robustness. It features 5000 mating cycles and Cat6A performance for 1/10Gb/s Ethernet. The active locking of the socket and connector uses two stable metal snap-in hooks, providing clear haptic feedback that confirms a secure connection. The product ideal for industrial Ethernet networks, medical devices and vision and surveillance cameras.

Vicor DCM2322x Isolated & Regulated DC-DC Converters

The DCM2322x DC-DC Converters operate from an unregulated and wide-range input to generate an isolated Vdc output. These DC-DC converters utilize high-frequency Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) topology to deliver high efficiency across the input line range. The DCM2322x converters provide Over Voltage (OV), Undervoltage (UV), Over Current Protection (OCP), short circuit, and thermal protection. These DC-DC converters are ideal for use in rail transportation, defense/aerospace, industrial, and process control.

AEC-Q101 N- and P-channel TrenchFETs

Power MOSFETs produced using a special process design that is optimized for use in the automotive industry. Low thermal resistance, -55ºC to 175ºC operating junction and storage temperature range, many package and SMD/SMT and through-hole mounting options. A full range of polarity options is also available, including N-channel and P-Channel co-packages.

The smallest, lightest, mixed-layout connector

Discover maximum space saving with combined signal and power in the new Gecko-MT connector from Harwin. When your application must not fail, connect with confidence. The next generation high-rel connector is tested to extreme levels of G-force and temperature for maximum performance in harsh conditions.

Artesyn 650 Watt Open Frame Medical AC-DC Power Supplies

Capable of delivering 650 W with forced-air cooling (750 W peak) or 400 W with natural convection, the CNS650-M series follows the industry standard 4X6 inch form factor. It is available in U-channel, open-frame, enclosed and enclosed end-fan options. The series incorporates 2XMOPP and is Type BF ready, while digital communication offers control and monitoring functions.

Automotive Grade Thin Film Chip Resistors

AEC-Q200 qualified resistors designed for automotive electronics, industrial and medical equipment, telecommunications, and test & measuring equipment. The resistors feature superior resistance against sulfur-containing atmosphere, an MSL-I moisture sensitivity level, and offer high component and equipment reliability.

Display Visibility a Problem in Sunlight?

Then Optical Bonding could be the answer. Display touch screens or glass are layered onto a module, leaving a tiny air gap. Environments of high brightness are a problem as light reflects as it travels through the various mediums, impairing the intensity and clarity of the end image by lowering the brightness and readability.

Amphenol RF SMA to AMC4 RF

Cable Assemblies are based on a 1.37mm coax cable with a standard female SMA jack on one end and a right-angled male AMC4 cable plug on the other end. They offer 50O impedance and work in a frequency range of DC to 6GHz. Cable lengths range from 50mm to 300mm.

New! Rugged, Solder-Cup Spring-Loaded Connectors

The new 868 series spring-loaded, and target connectors feature solder-cups to accommodate wire and cable attachment. With flanged insulators and fastening options, these connectors are ideal for mounting into product housings in docking stations, cable terminations, heavy duty quick connects and panel mount equipment.

Structured Cabling made easy

Assembly routine often encounters the unexpected. A damaged cable segment needs to be repaired quickly but you do not necessarily want to lay a new cable segment just yet. The existing network has to be extended or an additional device integrated but you do not have an assembled cable at hand. The perfect solution for these situations is now available: field-assembly data networking components from Telegärtner.

Gecko Screw-Lok now with Reverse Fixings and Cable Assemblies for Design Flexibility

Gecko Screw-Lok connectors resists extreme shock, vibration & temperature, offering a secure and robust connection in demanding applications. The range of miniature 1.25mm pitch connectors includes Ready-To-Use Cable Assemblies, Metal Backshells for strain relief & RF shielding and now features Reverse Fixings for ultimate design flexibility with the same high-reliability.
