The new 369 series connector is ideal for harsh and confined environments found in aerospace and aviation applications. “The 369 series sealed panel mount connector is fully compatible with […]
LEMO has expanded its field-proven M series portfolio with new configurations for high power requirements. These compact and light designs are vibration proof, reliable, safe and IP68 and Mil tested. They combine the robust, light & compact M series bodies with new state-of-the-art gold-plated high power contacts. Accommodating cables from 10 mm² (AWG 8) to […]
It only takes 3µA of current to fail an EMC test, and a connector can produce that much.
The latest high-speed transmission cables are benefitting from the use of optic-fiber and copper wire options, which are offering unique form factors and customizable solutions. Typically, data-transmission copper wire and optical-fiber conductors are round or cylindrical. The addition of silver plating on the copper conductor facilitates the high-frequency electrical transmission path. Fiber conductors are foundry […]
Kyocera expanded its line of wire-to-board connectors with the release of the new UL-approved 9296-400 Series 4mm-pitch horizontal poke-home connectors. The new 9296-400 Series connectors are designed to enable the quick, easy, cost-effective, and reliable board termination of discrete 18–26AWG solid or stranded wires or 1mm-diameter jumper pins in a broad range of industrial and commercial applications. The […]
Contributed by Paul Pulkowski, Marketing Manager; Maciek Czerwinski, Director of Sales and Business Development; and Rick Lopez, Sales Engineer and Project Manager, binder USA The potential of 5G connectivity is nearly limitless with statistics that are difficult to imagine. Analysts predict that worldwide 5G connections will double in 2022 to 1.34 billion, and grow to […]
Power connectors are primarily designed to ensure a safe and reliable connection of devices to AC mains power, although they are generally specified for AC and DC voltages. AC receptacles and plugs come in various configurations with different blade widths, shapes, positions, and dimensions, designed to make them safe to use and non-interchangeable with different […]
Connectors are essential components in radio frequency (RF) systems, especially in high-frequency applications like Gigahertz (GHz) 5G devices. Designers have a broad range of connectors to choose from, but there are a few key parameters to consider when narrowing down the choices. Six keys to selecting and integrating GHz connectors include physical size, frequency range […]
