Shielded M12 cable connectors with PG cable gland Provertha has expanded its M12 product portfolio with the introduction of fully shielded M12 cable connectors with PG cable gland. Due to the fully shielded MG cable gland the new M12 connectors are ideal for challenging applications with high EMC. The RF-tight solutions with 360° shielding support a wide spectrum of cables with diameters from 5.5 mm to 9.0 mm. Cable with different diameters can be easily adapted for various applications. Despite the new features and the reliable shielding the new M12 cable connectors retain the compact form factor and the dimensions of the standard M12 cable connectors. The crimped contacts with the PG cable gland enable a secure and reliable cable strain relief in demanding applications. Provertha Connectors, Cables & Solutions GmbH www.provertha.com Miniature connector crams 4 power and 20 signal contacts The Fischer MiniMax Series handles more mixed signal and power connections while saving money, space and weight, according to the manufacturer. The miniature solution comes as a pre-cabled solution for handheld or body-worn applications when space is limited. The Fischer MiniMax Series is available both in 19 and 24 pin configurations. While the 24 pin configuration is available with 4 power and 20 signal contacts, the 19 pin configuration features 4 power and 15 signal contacts as standard. Within the signal contacts, there are 2 advanced contacts for USB power connections as available option. The connector comes in push-pull, screw lock and quick release. Fischer Connectors www.fischerconnectors.com Optical D-Sub connector withstands harsh use Lane Electronics’ Positronic Optik-D Series is an ARINC 801 conforming fibre-optic connector designed to be used with the company’s Combo D-Subminiature family. Positronic’s Combo-D is a hybrid connector system which allows designers to incorporate power, signal, coax and now optical contacts in a single mixed density, D-Subminiature format. According to Lane Electronics, Optik-D connectors are more cost effective than D38999 or ARINC 600-based systems and are compatible with ARINC 801 products from other manufacturers. The Optik-D connector features an ultra-low insertion loss figure of just 0.06 dB (typical) achieved thanks to a proprietary design based on a tight tolerance guide pin and bushing that act jointly to keep the fibre cores precisely aligned.
