Stewart Connector's RoHS-compliant SS-39200
Series' mechanical design is comprised of both a wire aligner and load bar to
facilitate consistent twisted pair orientation during plug assembly. The
wire aligner is uniquely designed with a patent pending "cross talk zone"
which introduces a precise amount of cross talk to the plug to allow for
centered NEXT (Near End Crosstalk) performance as per IEC 60603-7-51 component
requirements and ANSI/TIA-568-B.2-10 transmission performance specifications
for 4-pair 100 Ohm CAT6a cabling. Due to the design of the wire aligner,
cable assemblers are provided with both a visual and mechanical means to
rapidly build patch cables that exhibit more reliable performance
characteristics than traditional CAT6 or CAT6a plug
connectors' strain relief provides cable retention and a 360-degree shielding
contact to enable a one-step termination process. Parts accommodate
typical 24 to 27 gauge solid or stranded cable due to their patented contact
Plug, load bar
and wire aligner are manufactured of UL94-V0 polycarbonate and feature 50 micro
inches gold-plated contacts for robust, long-lasting connections.
Additional specifications include an operating temperature range of -40 to +85C
and durability of 750 matching cycles. Voltage rating is 150V ac, and
current rating is 1.5A at 25C.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
