M23 19-Pole Field Wireable Connectors

Mencom M23 Field wireable (attachable) connectors are flexible passive devices used for a wide variety of industrial signal and control applications. The “Crimp and Poke” method of wire termination provides a quick solution where pre-molded cordsets are not readily available, or where cabling needs to be repaired. The improved pin and insert designs make using these connectors even more effective and efficient. A simple change to the way the pin is captivated in the insert makes wiring, and re-wiring, if necessary, a quick and easy task. Gone is the old retention clip that could possibly be damaged when re-wiring or repairing. A simple extraction tool can now be used to quickly remove any contact. The pins and sockets for the M23 19-pole products accept a wire gauge range of 24-18 AWG. Mencom M23 19-pole field wireable connectors offer rugged and reliable connections with error-free field installation.  The universal design also provides a means for shielding the cable if needed. As a convenience, Mencom also offers a crimp tool (CCPZ-MIL) a locator tool (MCTP-V19) and the extraction tool (MCV19ES) to assist with assembly and disassembly, as well as MCV-001 to assist with the assembly of the female threaded connector.

800 volt, N-channel depletion mode MOSFET

Littelfuse, Inc., an industrial technology manufacturing company, is pleased to announce the launch of CPC3981Z, an 800 V, 100 mA, 45 Ohm, small power N-Channel depletion mode MOSFET. Compared to a standard SOT-223 package, this new product's SOT-223-2L package features a removed middle pin. That increases the drain-gate pin spacing from 1.386 millimeters to more than four millimeters. The extended creepage distance is beneficial in higher voltage applications such as switch mode power supplies or power factor correction startup circuits because designers can avoid the need for costly conformal coating or potting. The key differentiator of the CPC3981Z is its modified SOT-223-2L package which enables designers to meet the required extended creepage distance for higher voltage applications with a small discrete device.

SSP safety switches

AutomationDirect has added SSP magnetic locking RFID non-contact safety switches to their portfolio of safety products. The SSP safety switches monitor and lock machine guards, doors, windows or other machinery. These safety switches combine both magnetic locking and RFID technology to provide tamper-proof protection using coded actuators. Contact is not required between the switch and actuator, which allows for a degree of misalignment.

Iboco wire duct options

AutomationDirect has added more Iboco wire ducts which provide an easy, efficient and safe way to organize wires and cables routed inside an electrical enclosure or cabinet. Our new shorter-length (1 meter) Iboco T1 series wide-finger-wall wire ducts and T1E series narrow-finger-wall wire ducts add more options for installation convenience in smaller projects. In addition, T1E series wire duct is now available in 2m self-adhesive versions that help reduce installation errors by temporarily holding the duct in position while being secured with screws. Iboco wire ducts are rugged UL recognized products made of a UL94V-0 flammability-rated PVC material and include two predetermined break lines on the sidewalls that allow easy removal of a single finger or a full segment from the base.
