Delta offers frameless fans

These frameless fans are available in blower, mixed-flow, and axial frameless models making them well-suited for a range of applications. As heat sources become smaller and more densely packaged, thermal-solution designers reduce weight and size wherever possible.

The frameless fan series offers the ability to integrate the fan into a complementary heat sink or housing design for maximum space-efficiency. Initial fan blade diameters range from 45 mm to 60 mm with speeds ranging from 2,900 rpm to 5,500 rpm. Despite their rotational speed and diminutive size, these fans run super quiet without traditional fan housing.

Applications include deploying Delta’s axial frameless fan model in larger spaces, such as within a finned heat sink. The mixed-flow frameless fan model is well-suited for smaller spaces with less defined outgoing airflow such as thinner finned heat sinks that offer more external air access.

The blower, or centrifugal type, frameless fan models can be applied to small spaces that offer fixed outgoing airflow.

Hirose EF2 Series Zero Screw Connector

 ZERO SCREW™ Terminal Block EF2 series is a spring terminal block that can connect cables to electrical equipment such as power distribution in buildings without using screws. The elimination of screws saves installation works and maintenance. In addition, it prevents accidental fires triggered by the loosening of screws in electrical power applications.

Since the ZERO SCREW™ terminal block EF2 series is spring-loaded, there is no concern of screw loosening. A good connection is maintained by IDC, and the fire risk of electrical equipment is reduced.

The ZERO SCREW™ terminal block EF2 series connection method is a single action of inserting standard ring terminals. Compared with the conventional screw-type terminal block, it is possible to eliminate the need for checking operations such as unscrewing, screwing, and torque checking. It is possible to reduce the number of work hours by more than 40% and thereby shorten the construction period.

IMSC introduces VIA® (Variable Interface Adapter), a new 5G RF board-to-board solution

 IMSC’s newly developed VIA® (Variable Interface Adapter) is designed for board-to-board and board-to-filter RF interconnections in todays and future 5G applications. The enhancement of the mechanical design is outstanding: limited detent and smooth bore interfaces are integrated into the adapter – one side of the adapter has mechanical retention to provide limited detent and the other side is smooth bore. The same PCB type could be used on both sides of the connection. This results in a lower number of different parts on the BOM and lower costs.

Additional product features include:

>> Combines all the advantages of board-to-board connections (SMP, Long wipe-SMP, P-SMP)

>> Reliable, advanced & secure connection

>> Excellent blind mate – fast and safe assembling

>> Same PCB type on both PCB sides simplifies assembly and the BOM

>> Limited detent or smooth bore side defined by the adapter

>> Low mating profile with minimum board-to-board distance of 12mm

>> Available as SMD & Thru-Hole component
