Although this is primarily a distributor show, there are still a good portion of new products being announced. Here are just a few of the products I’ve seen today:
Harting presented their latest addtion to their Han line, the Han-Yellock locking connector series. These innovative industrial connectors feature a pushbutton locking technolgy instead of the traditional levers. I highlighted the product back in April (

IRC has also unveiled the MIL-rated LRF3W-MIL Series resistors, which offer high stability through thick-film materials and are suited for high-current sensing applications, which is good news for the military and aerospace markets.
Also notable, Aidorondack Studios is employing the OVQ12S30x7 Series flexible LED modules from OPTEK in their “Changing Earth” exhibit at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA. The flexible strips have red and amber LEDs modules incorporated into the design to simulate flowing lava in the Magma Crawl display at the exhibit.
