2-, 4-, 6- and 10-pin miniature circular connectors
Bulgin has expanded its range of 4000 series miniature circular connectors. In addition to the existing 3, 8 and 12-pin solutions, the company now also offers 2, 4, 6 and 10-pin configurations. According to the company, the connectors are extremely robust and are suitable for applications where a long service life is required.
The Buccaneer 4000 series connectors withstand vibrations, shocks and corrosion in accordance with EN / IEC 60068 as well as salt spray for marine applications. In addition, they can be immersed in water up to protection class IP68 and withstand strong water jets or high-pressure washing processes according to IP69k when plugged in.
User congress connectors
The connector user congress in Würzburg illuminates practical aspects of the design and use of modern connectors. In practical workshops, top-class experts impart electrical engineering basics, specific know-how and help you select the right connector.
In addition, the connectors have a UV-resistant, UL94V-0 flame retardant plastic housing with a bayonet lock, so that users can establish a secure connection quickly and easily without special tools.
Interface provides power, data, signal for concept vehicle
Like its predecessors Snap and Micro Snap, the Metro Snap concept vehicle from Rinspeed AG consists of two elements: the moving skateboard as an optimized electric vehicle and the so-called pod, which can be changed flexibly for different tasks. Between these two elements, communication, signal transmission and energy supply must always work smoothly. Once the pod and skateboard are securely connected, the connectivity connection between the two elements is established automatically. Taking into account the special requirements for a mechanical connection, power, signal and data then flow.
Harting provides a specially designed interface for this. With Rinspeed, the technology company wants to take the next step for future mobility concepts. Whether passenger transport or freight logistics - Metro Snap can be used flexibly. The Harting module helps to be able to quickly convert the vehicle for different tasks.
The Practical Guide to Connectors is a reference work for device development and for the use of connectors. Developers and users receive answers to questions about design, materials, physical principles, contact surfaces, shielding measures, housing mechanics and locking systems.
M12 portfolio expanded with angled connectors
TE Connectivity (TE) has expanded its M12 portfolio with A, B and D coded versions of the angled connector. The angled M12 PCB connectors are available in versions with two, four and eight contacts for direct mounting on printed circuit boards and as a wall bushing. Integrated snap-in hooks made of plastic should enable reliable mechanical and electrical connections, which saves space on the printed circuit board in different applications, reduces installation costs and increases productivity.
The connectors are UL certified and meet IEC specifications. Their interface complies with the current industry standards and is compatible with many sensors, limit switches and other industrial devices. The IP67-compliant design offers protection against the ingress of dust and water when used in industrial environments. According to TE, local warehouses, low minimum order quantities and the worldwide sample service ensure short delivery times. Fields of application for the M12 connectors are industrial automation, industrial Ethernet, sensors and other areas that require protection class IP67.
