18-Position I/O Docking Connector supports 20,000 mating cycles.

January 21, 2015

Designed for cable and docking station applications in multiple markets, 34.1 x 23.6 x 9 mm 3800 Series comes in cable mount or vertical PCB versions and utilizes sequential mating system that, when connected, establishes ground system first to protect vital internal electronics from potential surges. Contact structure provides stable contact resistance and eliminates contact stubbing. Spring contact structure also prevents contact buckling and reduces contact shaving.

Cable Bushing maximizes wire density.

January 20, 2015

With SKINTOP CUBE MULTI, up to 23 electrical cables or pneumatic lines can pass directly through enclosure wall. System places rigid, glass-reinforced nylon frame into standard-sized cutout in wall. Polycarbonate insert inside rectangular frame has gel-filled holes, which allow cables to be inserted while creating seal and providing strain relief. Available in 2 versions, CUBE MULTI  covers cable diameters from 3–16 mm, maximizing wire density for given size cutout. Read More

Grounding Spring Connectors target mobile devices.

January 20, 2015

With free heights from 1.8–2.5 mm, working ranges from 0.85–2.4 mm, and operating temperature of -40 to +85°C, FCN-118X Series is suited for smartphones, tablet PCs, and wearable devices. Side-wing construction prevents form deformation by outer force in handling, while stop point prevents further displacement if excessive contact force is applied. In addition to providing frame grounding, some grounding springs can also function as power contact between printed circuit boards. Read More

Cable Management System targets robot workcells.

January 8, 2015

Providing cable management and protection, Base-RAP prevents cable problems between energy chain of TrackMotion modules and base of robot. Cable conduits, featuring 2-piece split loom construction, protect cables from tangling, flapping, and interfering with robot motion. Brackets are configured to safeguard against stress and unnecessary motion, and appropriate bend radii are maintained to prevent premature cable failure. With quick access clips, cables can be replaced without special tools. Read More

RF Components feature low passive intermodulation.

January 5, 2015

Operating up to 3 or 6 GHz, depending on configuration, RF Cable Assemblies exhibit PIM performance of -160 dBc and 1.25:1 VSWR. Most assemblies are built using formable 0.141 or 0.250  low PIM coax, but ½ in. flexible and superflexible low PIM coax are also available. RF Adapters, offering PIM performance from -150 to -168 dBc, operate up to 8 GHz with VSWR of 1.25:1. Available in 50 W and 100 W versions, RF Loads operate up to 2.7 GHz. Terminations have PIM rating of -168 dBc. Read More
