Cambridge Electronic Industries launches Rapid ConneXions 12G- SDI coaxial connectors for automated pick and place

and cable assemblies for the broadcast, machine vision and medical markets, announces their first range of connectors designed for automated pick and place manufacturing techniques. This industry leading range, which is marketed under Rapid ConneXions, includes Right Angled and End Launch, BNC and Micro BNC connectors. The Rapid Connexions range is part of the world renowned CoaxVision™ precision 75 ohm brand. All of the connectors


ambridge Electronic Industries, the specialist designer and manufacturer of high-quality coaxial connectors

within the Rapid ConneXions range are specifically designed for automated placement onto the PCB in rapid assembly and volume production environments. All of the connectors are 12G-SDI and CXP-12 compliant

and are fully compatible with reflow processing. The connectors are available with different PCB locking post lengths, to suit variations in board thicknesses and all feature Pin in Paste posts for electrical termination of the connector body, while also providing extra stability in the process manufacturing environment. The PiP pins are sized not to protrude through the PCB. The BNC connectors are supplied individually or in pick

and place waffle trays of 36 connectors, while the Micro BNC connectors are supplied individually or in a tape and reel of 650 pieces.

Flexicon offers a fast-fit with new in-line dividers

larger size, non-metallic flexible conduits including 42 mm and 54 mm. Flexible conduit allows designers and installers to


combine and protect different sizes and types of cables, from end to end, in one system. In-line dividers enable circuits to be divided and the conduit system to be adapted, thus offering flexibility while still maintaining system integrity. With one larger entry and two smaller entries, the

FPAX accessory allows a conduit system to be split in to two smaller diameter conduit runs. This can be beneficial when space is restricted, or multiple conduit runs and routings are required, such as on industrial machinery. IP ratings of IP66, IP67, IP68 and IP69 can be achieved

with the use of additional seals, which are included with the product.

Asset Management – How IIot gets you crucial data for insightful analytics T

he movement towards and development of Internet of things technology has already considerably improved

many organisations ability to manage their assets better. As organisations continue to develop themselves in their given field their ability to monitor their assets needs to remain agile to meet ongoing change. The way in which we get data and information from our assets must continue to provide rapid solutions and even swifter responses ensuring proactive rather than reactive intervention. Whatever your asset is however, machinery to man power, the ability to get them working as efficiently and effectively as possible is crucial to success.

To keep up with the rapid changes and requirements of

any business the way we access internet of things must move forward to. It is no longer sufficient for most businesses to rely on mains powered, large data logging units that aren’t easily transferrable and often lead to questions around costs to deploy. Development of battery powered, cost effective, cellular devices providing flexibility and agility must be addressed to answer these requirements.

Many of our clients require solutions that help them

manage their assets over large locational areas or with assets that are in difficult places to reach once deployed. The challenge is to allow insight remotely whilst management remains local, deploying their people effectively and safely to resolve any issues. Development of Bluetooth (BLE) within remote monitoring units is a vital development in allowing field asset communication.

As we are currently working closely with the water

industry, the intricate and vast pipe networks require a smart approach to monitoring and reacting. Typically to access certain points of the network it involves disrupting traffic whilst you protect your people who manually have to take readings. Via IoT devices and BLE this same

gathering of data could be done in seconds with no need to intervene unless anomalies are detected. Cutting time on investigative work and being able to deploy key people in the right location at the right time gaining huge business savings as well as having the collation of ongoing data. This example can be transferred to numerous industries with numerous assets.

The powerful insight of data manipulation and analysis

can develop the ability to work on a greater understanding and predictive modelling that can maintain an organisation at the forefront of their industry. The art of effective analysis comes down to the ability to acquire quality data. The data is the foundation to realising many

aspirations around insight and knowledge that most organisations require for their future strategies. Of course, IIoT requires investment, but investment in the foundations can only lead to a strong base to build upon.

solutions and how we can help you monitor your assets, please call us +44 (0) 1905 754 078 and ask for one of our IoT Application Specialists.
