Molex, LLC Key Developments

Molex Introduces IP67 Devicenet I/O Module with Full M8 Connectivity

Molex introduces the Brad® DeviceNet HarshIO M8 Modules, the first on the market to come fully ODVA conformance tested and approved. Offering full M8 connectivity for power, I/O and DeviceNet fieldbus this module provides a unique IP67-rated, small form-factor solution for high-density machine I/O connections for CNC and robotic machines, as well as material handling and bottling equipment. A more compact solution to the current mixed M12/M8 modules, the new IP-67-rated HarshIO M8 modules mount directly onto the machine even in the toughest environments. Featuring an IP67-rated housing, Brad HarshIO modules provide protection against dust, liquid and vibration. Machine mounting saves on cabinet space and reduces wiring costs in the field. Two integrated CAN fieldbus ports enable daisy chain wiring topology or additional cost saving. The flexible HarshIO 8-port design supports high density I/O points for attaching sensing devices, actuators or any single digital signal device in a compact space. Featuring built-in protection to help prevent short circuit and current overload, the configurable modules come equipped with diagnostic LEDs for visual feedback on network, power and I/O status.

Molex Introduces Impact™ zX2 Backplane Connector System to Meet High-Speed Application Demands

Molex has released the Impact™ zX2 Backplane Connector System, featuring density and signal integrity (SI) performance, while supporting data rates of up to 28 Gbps in a modular design. The system utilizes Impel™ patented ground shielding and footprint technology to enhance SI performance. Customers looking to upgrade their line cards to meet ever-increasing data rate requirements can now do so without making major revisions to their existing infrastructure. The zX2 system is backward compatible with standard Impact headers, allowing current Impact customers to keep their existing architecture in place while upgrading their chassis’ data rates. A common-ground structure improves crosstalk isolation, resulting in increased near-end crosstalk (NEXT) margin. Tuned to lower functional impedance to 95 Ohms, discontinuities are minimized throughout signal channels. Reduced-size compliant pins (0.36mm) on both the backplane and daughtercard modules optimizes PCB footprint which helps to further enhance the SI performance of the connector system by reducing impedance in the footprint. The Impact upgrade, Impact zX2, is ideal for applications in several markets, including telecommunications, data/computing, aerospace and defense, and medical.

Molex Introduces IP67 Brad HarshIO EtherNet/IP Modules for Roller Drives

Molex recently introduced the first ODVA conformance tested and approved IP67 EtherNet/IP I/O module to interface with roller drives. The space-saving Brad® HarshIO for Roller Drives Modules are machine-mountable to connect industrial controllers to I/O devices directly, even in the toughest environments. Interfacing with up to 4 roller drives makes the modules an economical choice for conveyor applications. Featuring an IP67-rated housing, the HarshIO modules provide protection against the ingress of dust and liquid in high vibration environments. Machine mounting saves on cabinet space and reduces wiring costs in the field. An integrated two-port switch with 100Mbps delivers full duplex data transmission and enables a daisy-chain wiring topology for additional cost-savings. The Molex patented Ultra-Lock® push-to-lock connection system delivers further time saving benefits for reliable IP67-sealed connection of cordsets during commissioning. The HarshIO module supports 8 digital inputs, with 4 digital outputs and 4 analogue outputs, to control the speed of the drive. Featuring built-in protection to help prevent short circuit and current overload events, the modules also come equipped with diagnostic LEDs for visual feedback on network, power and I/O status.
