HOW DO I KNOW
IF I’M TALKING TO
AN ENGINEER OR
Ask Smalley. It’s simple to tell
when you work with Smalley. That’s
because you’ll always collaborate
directly with our world-class team
of engineers—experts whose only
focus is helping you get the most
performance from your precision
wave springs or retaining rings.
Smalley wave springs reduce spring
operating height by 50%, saving space
and weight, fitting tight radial and axial
spaces. We offer more than 4,000
stock sizes in carbon and stainless steel.

THE ENGINEER’S CHOICE™
Mill-Max (Oyster Bay, NY) is
expanding its selection of target
connectors in both its .100” and .050”
grid families. Target connectors are
used in place of SMT pads on a PCB
as the mating surface for spring-
loaded pins. The new series include
right angle with concave mating face
(.100” grid), through-hole and surface
mount with concave face (.050” grid),
and horizontal surface mount and
right angle (.050” grid) with both flat
and concave face options available.
n Precision-machined and gold-
n Connector insulators molded from
high temperature plastic suitable
for most soldering processes.
Murata Power Solutions (Mansfield, MA)
has announced the D1U54P-W-650-12-HBxC
series of 650 W power supplies. Packaged in
an industry standard 1U format measuring 54.5
x 40 mm ( 2. 15 x 1.57”), it has a length of 228.6
mm ( 9”) compared to the 12” length of other
power supplies in this family. Features include:
n A power density of 21. 4 W/in³.
n A single 12 VDC primary supply.
n A standby 12 VDC/2 A output.
n A capability of N+1 redundancy.
n An active current sharing (ORing FET),
permitting connection up to a maximum of
eight in parallel.
n An I2C compliant PMBus interface and front
panel LED status indicators.
n Overvoltage, overcurrent, and overtemperature
n Forced air cooling.
USB Charge & Sync Device
Saelig (Fairport, NY) has introduced the
Cambrionix EtherSync – a network-attachable
USB charge and sync device that allows
multiple USB devices to connect with an
Ethernet network, simplifying remote software
and firmware updates. EtherSync is available
with multiple USB ports which can be used
with all types of USB-based peripheral devices,
tablets, and smartphones. Features include:
n The ability for each USB port to
simultaneously provide correct charging
currents of up to 2.1 A.
n USB 2.0 high-speed (480 Mbps) syncing
of multiple device types – irrespective of
n The ability to enable a host computer to
remotely access USB ports to charge and
sync USB devices in different locations from
one central controller.
n Either a fully-enclosed EtherSync unit or a
component board with 8 USB ports.
