Hirose Electric (Simi Valley, CA) has developed the DF59S Series, a mono-pole
connector that is optimized for LED lighting applications. The DF59S series is RoHS
and REACH compliant, and is classified as a Halogen-free product.
A housing-free receptacle that
produces a slim fit and low profile
A stress-free contact that provides
a ± 0.5 mm floating function in
the X and Y directions; and ± 0.2
mm in the Z direction.
A rated voltage range from
200 to 350 V.
A high-current capacity of 3 A.
Constant Voltage LED Driver
Phihong USA (Fremont, CA) has expanded its PDA072 and PDA080 constant voltage
LED driver series with 0 to 10 V dimming models. The PDA072W and PDA080W Series
LED drivers measure 241
x 43 x 30. 5 mm and weigh
750 g. Features include:
Output ratings of 72 W
@ 24 VDC and 80 W
@ 48 VDC.
A fully potted and
An IP67 rating.
Power factor correction
>0.9 per Energy Star
Efficiency ratings >88%
at 277 VAC inputs.
Over-voltage, over-current, short circuit, and open-circuit protections.
Edge Card Sockets
Samtec's (New Albany, IN) Edge Rate contact system increases wear life
and minimizes the effects of broadside coupling, decreasing crosstalk for
superior signal integrity performance and impedance control. Features
Optimization for performance at speeds up to 14 GHz/28 Gbps
( 3 dB insertion loss at 7.98 mm stack height).
A double row design with 9 to 60 positions per row on 0.80 mm
The ability to mate with standard 1.60 mm (.062") thick cards, as well
as Samtec’s AcceleRate twinax cable assembly (ECDP Series) for a
Optional board locks or latching, cable latching, and weld tabs.
