Connectors speed data transfer
New products from the Peak Group to be showcased at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2015 include a range of VTAC high speed data connectors for VPC's Mass InterConnect systems that offers data transfer rates of over 10Gbit/s per differential pair. Rapid data transfer is ensured when the connectors are installed in VPC's 90 Series Module, which can support up to 34 VTAC connectors with two differential pairs or four single-ended connections. The contacts are gold-plated for signal integrity and reliability and are compatible with several industry standard connectors including USB 3.0, Serial ATA, HDMI, DVI and DVI-1, RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet, QSFP and Infiniband.
There are also test plugs for standard industrial interfaces produced by German manufacturer Engmatec. They speed the production testing of electronic equipment incorporating interfaces such as USB, HDMI, RJ45 and eSATA. They have been specially developed for industrial-level automatic testing where plugs are frequently inserted and withdrawn. These automation-compatible test plugs are manufactured from abrasion-resistant plastic, with contact wires made of copper beryllium and glued into the plug body. They are suitable for operation for up to 200,000 mating cycles. Recently introduced test plugs include several types for the new USB 3.0 interfaces as well as new versions for the eSATA (Serial ATA) interface, DisplayPort connections, and FireWire (IEEE 1394) connections.
The company is also showing the range of Universal LightProbe Spectra USB Sensors from Optomistic Products, designed for the colour and intensity testing of LEDs. These programmable sensors check for a specific colour, or identifying the correct colour and intensity from a wide spectrum of colours, including white LEDs. They offer the choice of digital or analogue outputs. The latest version has a serial digital output and a USB interface incorporated into the sensor, enabling it to deliver a fast and simple serial-digital output directly to a PC.
Software from Simplicity AI complements the hardware on show. The Tequra software suite aims to reduce the cost and risk involved with test software development, deployment and maintenance. The software also provides detailed insight into manufacturing processes and product quality.
