ERNI has added cable systems for M8/M12 round connectors to its range of PCB products. These are produced in a variety of modules, pin configurations, cable lengths and cable qualities for the most cost-effective and optimised automation solutions.
As a completion to the product portfolio ERNI Electronics offers cable assemblies for the connection of sensors/ actuators or other automation systems devices such as I/O distribution boxes. The standard product range covers pre-assembled, over-moulded circular connectors of sizes M8 and M12 either as interconnection of two circular connectors or as a cord set having an open end of line. In addition, the portfolio comprises field-attachable connectors for tool-less cable termination, T-coupler, panel feed-throughs and adapter for quick and cost-efficient connection in the field.
ERNI extends the variety with different cable qualities that meet the most versatile industrial requirements and therefore are applicable for a wide range of use. PVC as a competitive and economic solution or PUR (UL/CSA approved), halogen-free and UV resistant, for highly demanding applications in drag chains and harsh environments - where operational reliability is crucial. Innovative product features like the self-securing screw locking guarantee vibration-proof and secure connection. The coupling nut additionally combines a knurled surface with a spanner flat suitable for standard wrenches. Different configurations, designs and codings are available from stock. All parts meet IP67 requirements (IEC 60529) to ensure protection against dust and water immersion. ERNI's pre-assembled cable assemblies use standard-wise two cable qualities in five different lengths. Further options are possible on request.

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.
