Anderson Power Products (Sterling, MA) has introduced the Saf-D-Grid 300, designed for single-phase AC applications requiring
higher voltages, smaller size, and expanded current carrying
capability. Saf-D-Grid 300 builds upon the performance of the 400 V
DC Saf-D-Grid connector. Features include:
■ A silver-plated, pure copper contact system.
■ Thermoplastic insulators.
■ Up to 30 A and 300 V within the same panel cutout as IEC 60320
■ Separate mechanical keys for 10 and 20 A configurations.
■ A maximum operating temperature of 80;C.
■ A high temperature, glass-filled nylon receptacle housing.
■ The ability to operate in temperatures of up to 120;C.
■ Universal touch safety.
■ An integral latch on the plug housing.
■ An optional ground-tied shield.
MicroPower Direct (Stoughton, MA) has
announced the MPL-03SEUP series of miniature,
safety approved, 3 W AC-DC power supplies.
Designed for space critical board level applications,
the power modules are as a miniature single-in-line
(SIP). Features include:
■ Six standard models operating from a universal
input of 85 to 264 VAC.
■ Regulated single outputs of 3. 3, 5, 9, 12, 15, or
■ The ability to be used in high voltage DC-DC
applications with an input of 70 to 400 VDC.
■ Tight line/load regulation.
■ Continuous short circuit protection.
■ Input/output isolation of 3,000 VAC and over
■ A Class II input.
■ An MTBF (per MIL HDBK 217F) greater than
■ RoHS compliance.
■ An industrial operating temperature range from
-40° to +85°C (ambient).
High-Speed Data Cables
W. L. Gore & Associates (Pleinfeld, Germany) has
announced its family of high-speed data cables for civil
aerospace applications. GORE Aerospace Cables address
the industry’s ever-increasing data needs in aircraft,
including passenger in-flight entertainment (IFE) and
essential electronic systems, while reducing maintenance
downtime and operating costs. Features include:
■ Suitable signal integrity for high-speed data transmission
up to 10 Gb over longer distances.
■ Support for standard protocols such as Ethernet Cat5e
and Cat6a, USB 3.1, HDMI 2.0, and more.
■ Construction with fluoropolymers.
