BENGALURU, India / TAIPEI, TAIWANMay 30, 2017 – Corsair®, a world leader in enthusiast memory, PC components and high-performance gaming hardware today announced the new CORSAIR K68 mechanical gaming keyboard. Continuing CORSAIR’s commitment to mechanical keyswitch quality, the K68 uses 100% CHERRY MX LED-lit mechanical keyswitches, combining them with a per-key silicone rubber shield to make the K68 both dust and water resistant tested to an IP32 rating. Preserving all the mechanical touch and feel that has made CHERRY switches gamer’s first choice, K68 also boasts per-key dynamic back-lighting and dedicated multimedia controls, allowing for simple customization and on-the-fly audio adjustment. CORSAIR K68 – ready for everything you, or your games, can throw at it.

It can happen to any gamer’s setup. In a brief lull in the action you reach for a drink or snack, only for an unseen threat to suddenly appear on screen. As you instinctively reach for your WASD keys to respond, it’s already too late to stop your falling snack or spilling beverage and the loss is often much greater than just a round, quest or mission. CORSAIR K68 was designed with those moments in mind, surrounding its CHERRY MX Red mechanical key switches with individual silicone rubber shields to allow spills to flow right through and keep dust and grime out.

While it’s designed to survive action outside of the game, the K68 also has everything you need to enable a high-performance gaming experience. Per-key red LED dynamic backlighting is completely configurable using CORSAIR Utility Engine (CUE) software, allowing gamers to choose from a wide-range of dazzling pre-set lighting effects, or download hundreds of user-made profiles. CUE also enables in-depth Macro support, allowing any key on K68 to be remapped to any other command or complex multi-function macros. Dedicated volume and multi-media controls put play, pause and skip at the touch of a button to minimize alt-tabs and interruptions, while dedicated windows-key-lock and lighting brightness buttons eliminate distractions or interruptions when you need to focus most.

Water resistant, dust resistant and made for gaming, K68 is mechanically tough.

R&M: All sustainability objectives achieved

May 29, 2017

Cabling specialist presents fourth CSR report. Activities informed by success-oriented values

BENGALURU, India – May 29, 2017 – Over the past two years, R&M – a globally active Swiss developer and provider of cabling systems for high-end network infrastructures has achieved the objectives of its sustainability strategy. Among other things, the company has refined and clearly defined its mission and corporate culture. Special emphasis was placed on respectful and success-oriented collaboration between colleagues, as well as with customers and other market partners. Colleagues were encouraged to cultivate an entrepreneurial sense of responsibility.

R&M’s recently published fourth Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report provides detailed information about the successful implementation of the sustainability strategy in the 2015 and 2016 financial years. R&M sees its increasingly global orientation as key to its sustainability. In 2016, R&M successfully entered the North American market. During the reporting period, a new branch was also opened in Brazil, to enable R&M to work the South American market more intensively. Global market cultivation is enabling R&M to make the most of growth opportunities and balance out disparate regional developments.

Sustainability continued to be a top priority for R&M in an ecological sense, too. Among other things, the company managed to reduce its water consumption, waste water output and use of cardboard packaging and paper at its Wetzikon headquarters during the reporting period.

The CSR report proves once again that R&M clearly meets the international standards for responsible entrepreneurship,” says R&M CEO Michel Riva.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The cabling specialist R&M has just produced its fourth sustainability report. “In the 2015/2016 reporting period, we achieved all of our commercial, social and environmental objectives,” says R&M CEO Michel Riva

Increasingly, large and international customers are expecting R&M to document its sustainable activities. Riva: “Responsible economic, social and environmental activity has always been part of the culture of this independent family business. Sustainability is a fundamental part of the owners’ approach. The company’s mission was reformulated and, within the space of a few months, established throughout the Group. This includes a targeted value system called Values for Success.”

During the reporting period, R&M managed to improve efficiency in all its plants. These improvements help to conserve natural resources and also contribute to the company’s success. Among other things, the plant in Bangalore, India, re-organized its production processes and managed to double its productivity as a result. The more streamlined way of working is having a positive effect on colleagues’ motivation.  The concept proved easily transferable, and was quickly applied to the plants in Bulgaria and Poland. In 2016, R&M was certified in line with ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015, confirming the high standards across the Group in terms of quality and environmental management.

Over the past two years, R&M has again placed particular emphasis on training for young people.  The company is currently promoting the introduction of dual vocational training in Bulgaria, based on the Swiss model. A delegation from the Bulgarian Parliament visited R&M’s headquarters in January 2016 to find out more about this training pathway for young technicians. On average, the R&M Group invests CHF 0.5 million a year globally in training its employees – an increase of 66% compared with the 2013/2014 reporting period.

The report is produced every two years and is published on the website. See https://www.rdm.com/Home/Company/About-R-M/Corporate-Social-Responsibility.

R&M Introduces Patch Cord Configurator for Power over Ethernet

May 25, 2017

R&M recommends: Avoid overheating, compute cleverly, calculate cabling precisely. Slimline patch cords are also suitable for Power over Ethernet

BENGALURU, India – May 25, 2017 – R&M, the globally active developer and provider of cabling systems for high-quality network infrastructures, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, is facilitating the introduction of Power over Ethernet to data centers and large networks with planning tools. Power over Ethernet (PoE) is used to power Ethernet end devices, such as switches, using data cables instead of separately laid power cables. Network cables can, however, also heat up under the influence of electricity. This in turn results in an increase in attenuation which reduces the transmission range. IT planners, technicians and data center operators must therefore carefully plan how to reduce the heating up of cables before they introduce PoE – for example with shorter links or smaller cable bundles. R&M supports planning with handy calculation tables. In addition to the configurator for fixed cables which is already available, R&M now also offers a configurator for patch cords. The free tool can be downloaded from the web: https://www.rdm.com/Home/Products-Markets/Topics-in-Focus/Power-over-Ethernet.

Black-Cable

Power over Ethernet is spreading increasingly. Data center operators are also using the major advantages this technology provides even though this does entail the challenge of keeping the cables cool. This is not only true of the thick cable bundles behind the racks, but also the patch cords on the front,” says R&M Product Manager Roger J. Karrer. The deciding factors: the cable cross section and the PoE performance levels used.

Thin cables are more susceptible to heat but users are increasingly opting for more slimline patch cords to reduce the cable volume at the front of the rack and facilitate patching. For example, the new PoE-capable R&MthinLine patch cord range is very much in demand. Its slimline cables have a total cross section of just 3.8 mm or 4.5 mm and conductor diameters from AWG28 to AWG30. This is why R&MthinLine cords are more flexible than conventional ones. They are easy to lay in tighter bending radii and are simple to store in cable guides.

Roger J. Karrer emphasizes: “This combination of PoE and thin patch cords pays particular attention to the possible increase in temperature and planners are given plenty of support by the PoE patch cord configurator from R&M.” The configurator calculates the end temperature to be expected in the patch cord bundle for each planned PoE performance level. These range from 15 watts to 4PPoE (4-Pair Power over Ethernet) with a 55 or 100 watt output. With 4PPoE up to half an ampere can flow via each twisted pair, which can cause overheating in long, very chunky cable bundles.

Slimline patch cords such as R&MthinLine cables support the use of Power over Ethernet (PoE) in data centers and large networks. Greater heating up of the current-carrying cables should, however, be avoided. The patch cord configurator from R&M helps planners to take precautionary measures.

The configurator takes ten parameters, such as room temperature and the volume of the cable bundles, into consideration. Planners can derive tolerances from these and see when critical temperatures will be reached in the patch cord bundles.
