Mini Hybrid Connector
Posted in Electronics & Computers, Electronics, Medical, Drug Delivery & Fluid Handling, Products, MDB on Thursday, 01 September 2011
Colder Products (St. Paul, MN) has introduced the Mini Hybrid connector, which eliminates the need for multiple connections between remote tools and a device. For applications requiring a smaller footprint, this provides a compact, single connection point for both air and electrical lines. With a breakaway latching mechanism, the Mini Hybrid incorporates the SMC coupling platform in the fluid path, features gold-plated brass electrical contacts, and is suitable for pneumatic and low power applications.

Rugged Spring Pins
Posted in Electronics & Computers, Electronics, Products, MDB on Thursday, 01 September 2011
Mill-Max (Oyster Bay, NY) offers a series of rugged spring pins capable of carrying 9 amps continuous current at 10 °C temperature rise. The Mill-Max 0850, 0851, 0852, and 0853 spring pins are suitable for rugged applications and for use in circuits operating above signal level. The 085X series is characterized by a greater mass and surface area, which provides a lower resistance electrical path than miniature spring pins. The spring pins feature a gold plated stainless steel spring, .050" diameter solid plunger, and thick wall construction to withstand demanding applications. They are designed for through-hole mounting, and each pin has a large diameter post and flange providing for a perpendicular and secure P.C.B. attachment. The 085X series provides .045" mid-stroke and .090" maximum stroke, allowing for use in applications where stack up tolerances are great. Applications include board stacking, docking stations, cable assemblies, quick connects, and anywhere there is a blind mate solution. The series is rated at 1,000,000 cycles minimum.
