Rectangular Connectors with the Heat Shield for High-Temperature Manufacturing Environment

Mencom high-temp series enclosures and inserts are designed to withstand a higher range of temperatures up to 180°C (356°F).

In some harsh manufacturing industries, electrical connectors are required to ensure reliable operation in high-temperature environments. Without proper equipment and protection, those connectors exposed to high temperatures can easily fail and can cause serious operational problems. Therefore, the use of special electrical connectors and enclosures developed for high-temperature environments will extend the life of industrial applications on the harsh manufacturing floor.


The operational temperature of the Mencom standard metal rectangular connectors is between -40°C and 125°C. However, the Mencom high-temp series enclosures and inserts are designed to withstand a higher range of temperatures up to 180°C (356°F) and cold temperatures down to -40°C (-40°F) when they are installed together. The enclosures are made of die-cast aluminum coated with high-temperature resistant, red-colored thermosetting powder. In addition, their flange and sealing gaskets are made of anti-aging heat-resistant fluoroelastomer for added protection against heat. The high-temp inserts are made of self-extinguishing thermoplastic material and are color-coded dark brown.

The sizes of the high-temp series connectors are available in "21.21", "44.27", "57.27", "77.27", "104.27", and "104.62". According to EN IEC 60529, the size 21.21 enclosure provides IP44 rating and the other sizes IP65 rating.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
