Hypertac presents its new M12 series M12 connectors incorporating innovative features and a compact design

Hypertac has responded to the challenge of miniaturization of systems, equipment and components by introducing a new range of M12 style connectors incorporating a number of innovative features. The new M12 Series implements the higher requirements for overall system functionality within a very compact design and at the same time includes the considerable advantages of hyperboloid contact technology. Hypertac’s M12 Series comprises 3, 4, 5 and 8 way contact positions; options for over-moulded or free assembly and straight or 90 degree versions to meet all the recognized standards and industry norms.

A floating female hyperboloid crimp socket within a robust connector insulator and shell provides the benefit of this anti-vibration arrangement which ensures a safe and secure connection for all signals. Additional benefits are realized by the provision of easy handling and rapid contact assembly with a unique sideways clip insulator design.

Insulator assembly within the connector is simplified with a simple touch, look and feel system to ensure correct orientation. An identical, highly compact form factor for each version is another advantage, providing the highest possible connector to connector density. For the free-assembled right-angle version, an adaptable cable entry termination allows for a change to a straight version in the field without compromising the IP67 reliability.

The stamped hyperboloid 0.8mm (8way) and 1.0mm (3/4/5way) contact used within the M12 system supports wire diameters of 0.03mm to 0.5mm (AWG32 to 20), and is suitable for automatic high-speed crimping systems, providing further benefits of process stability and repeatability. The 1.0mm machined contact variant also offered in the 3, 4 and 5 way supports a wide range of wire diameters, from 0.05mm to 1.00mm (AWG30 to AWG18). A 1.00mm contact suitable for a cable diameter of 10mm is also available to customers.

All D-coded 4-way and A-coded 4 and 5 way arrangements have a 360 degree screen termination, which provide complete protection and shielding against EMI/EMC when coupled with the all-metal shell.

Several panel mounting versions for cable and PCB termination offer a complete system for the equipment designer.

Ideal for a wide range of industrial and sign-making applications, Flexistrip™ LED strips benefit from in-built electrostatic and reverse-polarity protection and an extra-thick copper substrate for enhanced reliability and longevity. Positive and negative connections to a low voltage supply power the strips, and a simple two-wire link can be used to carry power from one strip to the next. The very high number of LEDs per metre eliminates many of the most commonly seen problems with LED illumination - such as light and dark patches or ‘spottiness’ in a beam - and means stunningly bright, consistent illumination in a vast range of applications. For optimal reliability, the LEDs used in the construction of the Flexistrip™ range are bin- sorted very tightly, with voltage bins as narrow as +/- 0.05V. This crucial step, skipped by many strip designs on the market, results in all the LEDs on the Flexistrip™ being driven at the same drive current. Without it, some chains will draw more current than others and can be overdriven, causing groups of LEDs to fail over time. In addition, the bin sorting ensures consistency of brightness along the strip.

To enhance the range’s versatility further, OMC have developed two fundamental types of Flexistrip™ - front-firing and side-firing. The front-firing Flexistrip™ features 90 ultrabright LEDs per metre, is 10.5mm wide and offers a beam angle of 120 degrees and the light is emitted from the flat face of the strip. Total strip height is very compact - only 3.6mm - and can be reduced further to 2.1mm if required by omitting the VHB foam tape backing. This popular strip type is ideal for wide angle applications such as lighting up vending machines and chiller cabinets, point-of-sale displays, illuminated furniture and lighting up lightboxes and built-up letter faces as an alternative to fluorescent or neon.

Side-firing Flexistrip™ benefits from 78 ultrabright LEDs per metre, is 12.5mm wide and has a unique elliptical beam profile. This 30 x 60 degree beam, emitted from the side of the strip face, enhances intensity transverse to the strip while achieving fast beam mixing between adjacent LEDs, making it ideal for edge-illumination, halo effects, directional applications and for firing light over a longer distance. Total strip height is 7.0mm, or only 5.5mm without the VHB tape. This strip type is also ideal for being recessed into a routed channel or groove such as in display boards or signals.

Due to their superior reliability when compared to “decorative” LED strips, in addition to signage and display applications, OMC’s Flexistrip™ series are also finding a variety of uses in the industrial sector, for example in illuminating workstations, CNC machinery and other industrial equipment. Both strip types are available in both 12V and 24V versions and in a wide range of colours, and the front-firing strip is also available in RGB.
