"Commercial UAV/UAS manufacturers are transitioning from hobbyist-style wired battery connections to more elegant, compact, robust and higher-reliability board-to-board, wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connectors," said Jeff Torres, global product manager, Molex. "We have a complete product set to offer this rapidly growing industry. For example, the compact size and high current density of EXTreme Power™ products make them a proven, reliable solution for battery-cartridge applications, and the Fit Families of Molex connectors offer a great fit for rotor applications. Also, Molex is developing new products designed specifically for the UAV/UAS industry."

Molex EXTreme Power connectors, which will be displayed at booth 926, are ideal for next-gen commercial UAV battery applications. The line includes:

EXTreme LPHPower™ System, which offers 30.0A per contact at +30ºC T-rise and a 7.50mm connector-profile height while facilitating optimum airflow in the battery cartridge. Its hybrid power and signal circuit layout, with integrated alignment guides, conforms to a variety of electrical requirements.
EXTreme Ten60Power™ System, which provides 30.0A and 60.0A per contact at +30ºC T-rise and enhances design flexibility with both low- and high-power contacts in a configurable design.
EXTreme EnergetiC™ System, which provides 50.0A and 100.0A per contact at +30ºC T-rise and enhances design flexibility with both low- and high-power contacts in a configurable design.
EXTreme PowerMass™ System, which offers 40.0A, 80.0A, and 150.0A per contact at +30ºC T-rise and maximizes power delivery from the battery via extremely high-current blades.
Other Molex products to be featured in booth 926 include Ultra-Fit™ and Mega-Fit® Power Connectors, which deliver cutting-edge current density at 14.0A and 23.0A per circuit respectively; the PicoBlade™ Connector System for high-density harness applications; and Micro-USB, a USB Shielded I/O Cable Assembly.

 IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
