PRODUCTS INTERCONNECTION NEW RUGGED BULKHEAD HOUSING FOR FIBRE OPTIC TRANSMITTERS R


ugged bulkhead-mount housings from OMC are now


available for fibre optic receivers and transmitters. The new devices incorporate an ST connector and have been developed as the ST version of OMC’s FDH1 transmitter and receiver housing. The robust design of the FDH36 helps it withstand the harsh operating environments often found in industrial, automotive, mass transit and similar applications, including off-road vehicles. The new devices consist of an


all-metal, rugged turret design with a square base flange. The flange features mounting holes in each corner and are designed to bolt down firmly to the bulkhead,


helping to ensure a robust and secure fixing. As well as offering greater physical resilience than plastic housings, the FDH36’s metal construction also helps with screening against radio frequency interference. OMC’s Commercial Director,


William Heath says: “The FDH36 is the latest addition to our range of precision-machined, all-metal fibre-optic components. It is


designed to interface with industry standards while offering the consistency, longevity and robustness needed for industrial, transport, and other challenging applications. Our new rugged bulkhead housing with ST connector can accommodate our full range of Tx and Rx diodes, helping withstand vibration and is ideal where links have to allow for multiple connect and disconnect cycles.” Heath adds, “As we design and manufacture our transmitters, receivers and fibre-optic connectors in house, we welcome custom requirements and are able to offer parts that are tailored to suit specific needs.” www.omc-uk.com

The functional principle of the HARSH ENVIRONMENT CONNECTORS FROM BINDER OFFER MORE FLEXIBILITY


Binder has announced an addition to its HEC Series 696 circular connector series. The HEC Series (for Harsh Environment Connector) is a UL connector designed to provide high resistance to salt spray, temperature fluctuations, ozone and other pollutants. The new addition to the series is an accessory for panel mount applications sealing on the inside of the panel designed for sealing the single wires at the connection side and offers protection against dust and humidity. It consists of a set of seals accommodating wires of 2.5-6.0mm (AWG 14-10), a pressing screw and a ring which, when fitted, meets IP67. It is specifically designed for 5 pole (4+PE) panel mount connectors.


The HEC connector’s design features a secure, three-point fast locking mechanism that prevents


incorrect orientation. The use of crimp contacts makes for a vibration-proof termination. According to binder, HEC connectors are good for 1000plus mating cycles making them ideally suited for applications that require frequent connecting. www.binder-connector.co.uk


preLink system is based on two parts: the connector carrier and the plastic terminal module. The module has eight entry holes for finger insertion of insulated solid or stranded cable


conductors, and is pressed together in a single operation with a simple 360


̊ hand


press tool, providing dependable IDC termination. It is then simply clicked into the connector carrier to produce a highly reliable, repeatable field termination cabling system. Data cables with pre-terminated modules will fit through even the tightest gaps. The terminal modules come in three


different types: 8-pin yellow devices for cable with conductors of AWG 23/22 stranded/solid, 8-pin white for AWG 27/26 stranded/solid covering with Cat 5e to Cat 6A performance compliance, and 4-pin Black AWG 27/26 stranded/solid for AIDA/Profinet performance networks. www.harting.co.uk

NEW USB-C HUBS EXPAND CONNECTIVITY OPTIONS FOR A RANGE OF COMPUTING NEEDS


Three new USB-C hubs, including one featuring USB 3.1 Gen 2 have been introduced by StarTech.com. The 4- Port USB-C Hub (HB31C4AB) offers users data transfer rates of up to 10Gbps and is compatible with both USB- C and Thunderbolt 3 equipped laptops, and is plug and play, eliminating frustrating installation times. It is bus powered, so there is no external power adapter required, helping to reduce cable clutter. The company’s 7-Port USB-C Hub (HB30C5A2CSC) offers users 4 USB-A ports, 1 USB-A fast-charge port


and 2 USB-C ports. The multitude of ports provided eliminates the hassle of swapping connected devices on port deprived laptops. This adapter allows users to not only extend the life of their current devices through USB-A ports, but also allows users to connect and take advantage of their new USB-C devices all through one hub. This hub provides users with an extended length cable to allow for more flexibility when connected to a device, as well as plug and play technology to allow for a hassle free set up once connected. It is perfect for a front office workstation where a number of USB peripherals are in use or a back-office support area where multiple peripherals are being tested.


The 4-Port USB-C Hub with Individual On/Off Switches HB30C4AIB is a portable solution for road-warriors who use thin laptops with limited ports.


This hub makes connecting on the go easy, with no need for extra power adapters or a complicated installation process www.startech.com
