AlphaWire’s EcoFlex™ Cable is the newest innovation in flexible control cables. By combining better performance and minimum environmental impact, EcoFlex uses its mPPE insulation and jacketing to provide all of the advantages in a smaller, lighter flexible control cable.
- Recyclable mPPE jacket and insulation
- -40°C to 105°C static, -5°C to 105°C flexing temperature range
- RoHS and REACH Compliant
- Suitable for use in NFPA 79 applications
- Compact cable for moderate flex applications
- Rated for more than 1 million flex cycles
- Easier routing and handling
||Of Benefit to You:
- Up to 32% smaller than PVC
- Up to 55% lighter than PVC
- Up to 91% lower outgassing
- 100% recyclable
- Up to 8x Flexing Bend Radius
Additional Information: Environmentally Friendly
EcoFlex cable contains no halogens, phthalates, or heavy metals. The mPPE thermoplastic insulation and jacketing can be easily recycled. They meet RoHS and WEEE requirements for the elimination of hazardous substances and recyclability.
Low Specific Gravity
The 1.03 specific gravity of mPPE is 25% to 40% lower than other insulation materials, such as PVC, polyethylene, and cross-linked polyethylene. Along with the reduced wall thickness, the low specific gravity yields significant weight savings of up to 55% with EcoFlex cable.
Better Dielectric Strength
The superior dielectric properties of mPPE make a reduced wall thickness possible, while maintaining the same electrical properties as a thicker PVC control cable.
More Choice in EMI Protection Alpha Wire offers EcoFlex cable in three shielding options to handle any electrical environment.
SupraShield® Foil + Braid Shield
EcoFlex cables are available from stock in most sizes and constructions, with put-ups as small as 100 feet. Alpha Wire provides same-day shipment and next-day delivery to practically anywhere in the world.

Connect more devices in less space
G11 passive splitters are recent additions to the PEPPERL+FUCHS family of G11 Series AS-Interface I/O Modules. Available in flat cable or M12 male connector versions to satisfy varied application needs, these splitters are sealed to keep out contaminants. They are also ECOLAB certified and IP67 rated for reliable operation in wet environments. In addition to AS-Interface, they are well suited for any power or network distribution requirement.
“More connectors mean that less space is required to distribute an AS-Interface network to the field,” says Tim Cicerchi, Product Manager, Pepperl+Fuchs. “Onboard LEDs provide users with quick and easily identifiable connection status. A green light indicates that the voltage is okay and a red light indicates reverse polarity.”
G11 Series AS-Interface modules feature a simple, round housing design that enables the AS-Interface cable to easily exit the housing in any direction to significantly simplify installation and operation. The round design also leverages an O-ring gasket to make these modules impervious to water jets or submersion.
With its unique yellow flat cable, AS-Interface supplies power to sensors and actuators, and enables users to transfer data to up to 31 analog nodes per AS-Interface network. Retrofitting AS-Interface is extremely simple, and the installation time and costs are much lower compared to conventional wiring technology. AS-Interface transfers data reliably, is extremely resistant to electromagnetic interference, has a diagnostic function and can detect faults such as short circuits.
TE Connectivity (TE) has extended its PCB (printed circuit board) connector product family that meets RAST standard to further support most industrial and appliances safety standards.
- Designed to the RAST Standard
- Tin / Silver plating
- Available in multiple colors

TE Connectivity (TE) has extended its PCB (printed circuit board) connector product family that meets RAST standard to further support most industrial and appliances safety standards. With the expanded portfolio covering several sizes, colors, footprint layouts and plating, TE’s new PCB connectors are particularly ideal for wire-to-board connections and control units of major appliances and other applications.
TE’s new PCB connectors come with a broad range of options and comply with most industrial and appliance safety standards, including UL94-V0, IEC 60335-1 (GWT 750°C), as well as certificates of conformity by UL, VDE and CQC. These product additions allow TE to offer a more optimized product portfolio and more flexible solutions to meet diversified needs in the appliances market.
The 5mm-pitch PCB connectors that meet RAST 5 standards come with two to eight positions and three footprint layouts. The 2.5mm-pitch PCB connectors that meet RAST 2.5 standards are available in 3 to 15 positions, 1 footprint layout, and external and internal locking types. Both models also offer choices of tin or silver plating, several different colors, and various configurations of keying for customization needs in order to save costs.
Introducing the Honeywell Zephyr™ Digital Airflow Sensors 0 to 20 SLPM and 0 to 200 SLPM
Honeywell first introduced the Zephyr™ airflow sensors HAF Series in March 2010 with a digital output version, 200 SCCM, a long port fastener mount, and a short port snap mount. This product is considered the foundational building block of the Honeywell Zephyr™ portfolio. Honeywell’s customers use the Zephyr building block with their own bypass solution. The bypass serves as the main airflow channel in the equipment, such as a ventilator.
Honeywell is pleased to announce its new Zephyr™ Digital Airflow Sensors that provide an airflow range from 0 to 20 SLPM and 0 to 200 SLPM. These new devices have been designed for customers who don’t want to create their own bypass solution. Honeywell has affixed the Zephyr building block airflow sensor directly to the bypass, eliminating customers having to design their own bypass and saving them time and effort.
- High performance: Tight Total Error Band [±4% reading] and high accuracy [±3.5% reading]
- Ease of integration: Simple electrical interfaces (regulated, compensated, calibrated, linearized); multiple mechanical configurations (manifold mount, male and female fittings)
- Custom calibration: Forward flow direction; optimized custom calibration for many gases (dry air, helium, argon, nitrogen, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide)
Honeywell’s Zephyr™ Airflow Sensors potentially may be used in many medical and industrial applications.
