Panasonic Introduces the NEW R35K Series of Narrow Pitch Connectors

April 19th, 2021

The NEW R35K Series is an ultra-small 0.35mm pitch socket and header Connector pair that is available in a 4-pin solution. This Connector uses power terminals on each end of the Connector to transmit 3A continuous current allowing for the connection of small Battery powered devices. The inner pins of the Connector are each rated 300mA for carrying signal as well.

The NEW R35K Series Connector also maintains the Panasonic unique Tough Contact Construction consisting of bellowed contacts for shock and vibration resistance and v-notch construction shape which maintains 2 points of contact between socket and header pins. The robust structure and balancing of small size and high current capability makes the NEW R35K Series ideal for lightweight Battery powered devices such as smart watches, hearing aids and headphones.

Panasonic Introduces the NEW HF 1 Form A High Capacity PhotoMOS Relays Product Line

April 19th, 2021

The latest addition to the Panasonic PhotoMOS® Relay family, the NEW HF 1 Form A High Capacity PhotoMOS Relays are 1200V High Capacity PhotoMOS Relays and offer a suitable substitution for replacing reed and mercury Relays. Additionally, the NEW HF 1 Form A High Capacity PhotoMOS Relays offer high load switching for both industrial and test equipment environments.

PhotoMOS Relays can sometimes be used in applications where traditional Electromechanical Relays are already being used. Replacing a standard Electromechanical Relay with PhotoMOS can provide additional benefits such as longer life cycle, better resistance to shock and vibration, low On-resistance and a theoretically infinite life cycle. This makes PhotoMOS Relays a very good solution for Battery Monitoring Systems, Test & Measurement, Electrical Power and Industrial markets. Some common applications for Panasonic PhotoMOS Relays would be in the measurement market, security equipment, fire prevention systems and industrial machines.
