Switchcraft has extended its popular IP68 rated EN3 range by adding panel mount receptacles that have right-angle PCB terminals.
Compact in size, the new 'RAPC' receptacles fit a 15mm diameter panel hole and are available from 2 to 8 poles with male and female contacts. Current ratings are up to 7.5A per pole.
The EN3 range is designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions and includes panel, cable and in-line versions and the gold-plated contacts are solder, crimp or through-hole PCB mount. Other options include cord to panel connectors with up to 18 poles.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
