AUSTIN, TX – For design engineers working with machine vision and industrial control applications, 3M now offers I/O connectors that conform to the popular IEEE 1394 – 1995 standard.
The latest addition to the family of I/O connectors from 3M Electronic Solutions Division, the new IEEE 1394 connectors from 3M consist of an assortment of 6-pin shielded I/O connectors and accessories. Built around a robust ribbon-style contact interface for reliable repetitive plug/unplug applications, the connector is capable of carrying either signal or power, allowing designers flexibility in the location of power supplies to peripheral devices.
All IEEE 1394 connectors from 3M are shielded for increased resistance to EMI/RFI, critical for use in sensitive control and vision applications. Though designed specifically to suit the challenging demands of machine vision and industrial control factory environments, the robust-connection, vibration-resistance and secure-latching features of the IEEE 1394 connectors from 3M make them suitable for an even wider variety of applications, including communications and specialty computing.
Additional features include RoHS compliance*; quick-release secure latching system for easy connect and disconnect in repetitive plug and unplug applications; and the ability to accept a wide range of wire gauges. Configurations include right-angle, upright through-hole plug (male) and right-angle, horizontal through-hole plug (male) for boardmount connectors and wiremount receptacles (female) with applicable latching shell kit.
