Fountain Inn, S.C., May 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of passive components and interconnect solutions, has developed and is now sampling a new, first-of-it-kind, off-the-shelf, high-reliability wire-to-board (WTB) connection system for discrete 18 – 24AWG wire terminations in quality- and cost-conscious automotive electronics applications exposed to shock, vibration, high temperatures, and other harsh environmental elements, including vehicular computers, such as airbag, engine, and transmission control units. The new 53-8702 Series combines industry-proven insulation displacement contact (IDC) and press-fit or compliant pin technology in a single package to deliver robust, double-ended, cold-welded, and gas-tight WTB terminations that eliminate costly two-piece connector systems, improve implementation efficiency and reliability, enable problem-free conformal coating, enhance design flexibility, and remain effective throughout the life of a vehicle. “IDC and press fit/compliant pin technologies have proven to be two of the most reliable contact systems in critical automotive applications for more than a decade now and are widely employed throughout the industry,” said Tom Anderson, connector product manager at AVX. “By combining these two trusted contact technologies in a single high-reliability solution, we’ve achieved the perfect marriage of materials and contact geometries for use in harsh environment automotive electronics and — more than likely — as engineers test and validate samples of the series, additional applications outside of automotive as well.”   AVX’s new 53-8702 Series IDC/Press-Fit WTB connectors feature two phosphor bronze contacts per position, each of which exhibits superior fatigue resistance over extreme temperature and deflection ranges, and are currently available in five positions. The series is rated for 6 – 10A depending on wire size, 125V, operating temperatures spanning -40°C to +125°C, and a single termination cycle.  Benefits of the new series include: - Redundant contact systems for enhanced wire retention and PCB attachment. - The ability to replace costly, two-piece connector systems with a single solution comprised of the two contact technologies most revered for their ability to deliver high-reliability connections capable of withstanding extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, and thermal expansion over long lifetimes in automotive applications. - The ability to connect two PCBs that are in close proximity, but not in the same orientation or alignment location for a traditional board-to-board connector more reliably than the FFC/FPC cables typically used to jumper between two zero insertion force (ZIF) connectors, especially in high-vibration applications. - Improved implementation efficiency over FFC/FPC connectors via the use of multiple color-coded discrete wire gauges to achieve high current-carrying capabilities, which can facilitate easier and more traditional wire dressing and routing through a vehicle. - Compatibility with potting processes without any risk of ingress, unlike traditional, elastic-only contact systems, which are vulnerable to potting material ingress during both the potting process and thermal expansion. - Dual assembly methodologies that allow for either pre-installation on a PCB during the board build process, enabling wires to be inserted and pressed into place with any standard flat rock seating tool upon final assembly, or pre-installation on a wiring harness, enabling the connector to simply be pressed into the PCB upon final assembly, the latter of which is especially well suited to conformal coating processes.  For more information about AVX’s new high-reliability 53-8702 Series IDC/Press-Fit WTB connectors, please visit http://www.avx.com/products/connectors/wire-to-board/idc-connectors-14-28-awg/idc-press-fit-53-8702-wtb/ to access the product datasheet.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 21, 2017) - ALTAIR RESOURCES INC. ("Altair" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AVX)(FRANKFURT:90A) (ISIN: CA02137W1014) (WKN: WKN A2ALMP) President and CEO, Mr. Harold (Roy) Shipes, is pleased to announce that the Company has acquired a third mining license that expands the land position on the Crepulje zinc-lead-silver property, Mitrovica district of Kosovo. "Based on our interpretation of the gravity survey and the high grade trench samples, it was imperative we cover anomalies that extend onto this additional land," stated CEO Harold (Roy) Shipes. The third license extends the property to the west and north from the original two holdings. A recently completed gravity survey encountered anomalies extending onto this additional land which is underlain by the same favourable geological units as the original property holding. As announced on October 11, 2016, a field program was undertaken on the Crepulje project in May and June 2016. Three existing trenches were re-exposed and were also extended, and five new trenches were completed. These new discoveries extended the zone of high-grade lead-zinc mineralization which has been trenched by approximately an additional 300 metres to over 450 metres. Eighteen samples were collected from the trenches, and one surface grab sample was collected from a surface exposure. Five new trenches were completed; trench No. 8 through No. 12. In addition, one sample (No. 19) was collected from a newly discovered outcrop. Results from these new trenches and newly discovered outcrop are presented in the following table: Portions of trenches 1, 2 and 3, which were originally excavated in 1974, were re-opened, deepened and widened. Nine samples were collected during this summer's program. The results of these samples are presented in the following table: The samples collected during this program were submitted to the ALS Laboratory in Bor, Serbia where they were initially crushed and pulverized prior to a split being analyzed. The samples were initially analyzed for 33 elements using the ME-ICP61 technique. Where the samples exceeded the upper limit of 1% for zinc and/or lead they were then analyzed using the Zn-OG62 and Pb-OG62 techniques respectively. A number of samples exceeded the 30% zinc upper limit and were then analyzed using the Zn-AAORE technique. The technical information in this Press Release has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Stewart A. Jackson, PGeo., a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101, and a Technical Advisor to the Company. To learn more about Altair, please visit http://altairresources.com.
