Hirose launches screwless terminal block that simplifies assembly & maintenance by 40%.                   

Designed to replace traditional terminal blocks, the EF2 Series screwless terminal block series delivers a quick and secure one-step connection.

Available in five different sizes with five different amperage options including 30A, 60A, 150A, 250A and 400A, the EF2’ screwless design simplifies installation and maintenance by up to 40% compared to conventional terminal blocks.

Its unique single-action connection design requires the user to simply push a ring terminal into the connector. Screwless terminals do not require inspection or retightening to ensure a stable and consistent connection like traditional terminal blocks. 

Rated voltage of 600V AC/DC and operating temperature of -25 degree C to 105 degree C.

Delta SuperFlo Bearing Fans.

Delta Superflo Bearing Fans are a culmination of innumerable hours of research and development.

The result is a newly augmented mechanical structure that ensures permanent lubrication of the spinning mechanism. This is achieved through multiple improvements to the inner lubrication system, pump dynamics, sealing, and flow.

Featuring an anti-gravity oil pump, Delta Superflo Bearing Fans recirculate internal oil reserves endlessly within a chamber sealed by dual labyrinth seals. This flow, combined with heat and pressure created through centrifugal forces during operation, minimizes friction and noise while extending the working life of the fan.

Some keys features and benefits include:

  •  Permanently lubricated spinning mechanism
  •  Anti-gravity oil pump
  •  Redesigned sealing and oil flow paths
  •  New sinter powder metal bearing
  •  Greatly reduced friction and noise
  •  Better acoustic performance over 2-ball bearing fans at low speed operation
  •  Superb anti-shock
  •  Operating life guarantee (L10) 50,000 hours at 40C minimum
  •  Wide applicable temperature range
  •  Very cost competitive

ADATA Launches ISSS316 and IMSS316 Industrial-Grade 3D NAND SSDs.

ADATA Technology, has launched two industrial-grade SATA III solid-state drives (SSD), the ADATA ISSS316 2.5″ SSD and IMSS316 3D TLC mSATA SSD.

Both versions use high-quality 3D NAND Flash to offer larger capacities ranging from 32GB to 1TB and excellent performance. The ISSS316 delivers read/write speeds of up to 550/520MB per second while the IMSS316 delivers read/write speeds of up to 540/530MB per second.

For added stability and reliability both SSDs support a number of technologies including Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.), which can indicate a possible imminent drive failure, and NCQ and Windows TRIM Command to boost performance.

What’s more, with support for LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology, both SSDs can detect and fix errors to ensure data integrity and thus enjoy extended lifespans.

For convenient management of the SSDs, customers can take advantage of ADATA’s SSD Toolbox, which facilitates the monitoring and managing of the drives, with drive status, wear level, and lifespan information. 

 The ISSS316 is ideally suited for industrial computing, gaming, surveillance, healthcare, defense, and general automation. Meanwhile, the smaller form factor of the IMSS316 makes it suitable for thin clients, and embedded applications.

Ohmite new SMU series of surface mount potentiometers

Ohmite’ SMU series of surface mount potentiometers offer a maximum power dissipation of 0.25 W.

The SMU is designed to keep the lowest profile, which is done by having the adjustment location on the top of the potentiometer. The adjustment of the full range of resistance can be accomplished with a single turn, providing the user with a quick adjustment.

Ohmite also incorporates a multi-dimensional adjustment dial. The adjustment of resistance can be completed with either a flat head or Phillips screw-driver, adding another layer of ease for the user.

The SMU series is offered in standard values from 50 Ω up to 2 MΩ, and the outer casing meets UL 94V-0 requirements.
