PA&E’s circular DC hermetic connectors are designed for military, space, commercial, and medical applications with environmental conditions that require extremely rugged and reliable hermetic seals. Available in catalog and custom versions compatible with both laser welding and soldering, these connectors utilize Kryoflex®, the company’s specialized polycrystalline ceramic material, to produce seals with robust resistance to extreme temperatures and humidity.
Chogori’s M12 Series field-installable connectors feature coupling nuts for enhanced vibration resistance and allow users to customize cable type and length, enabling quick, easy, and cost-effective onsite installations in applications including proximity and safety switches, and other miniature I/O devices and sensors. Rated for up to 250V and 4A, the series is available in male and female straight and right angle versions with 3, 4, 5, and 8 pins, screw-in or solder terminations, plastic or metal housings, and A, B, or D coding.
Bulgin’s EXPlora Series environmentally sealed circular connectors enable quick and easy screw-fixed connections with robust dust and waterproof resistance. Designed for use in ATEX Zone 2 applications with hazardous or explosive atmospheres, including: motors, pumps, lighting, and process and control equipment, the series is available with 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 10 pole variants and features positive location keyways to prevent incorrect coupling.
Phoenix Contact’s 18AWG M12 cordsets were designed for use in traditional 22AWG M12 assembly applications in which voltage drop is a concern, necessitating the specification of a larger wire. Available in 3, 4, and 5 positions, the PLTC cables feature sunlight resistant PVC jackets, and are rated for use in temperatures up to 105°C.
SGconn’s IP66 waterproof, dual-port USB chargers are designed for use in harsh, outdoor environment applications, including: marine, power sport, and utility vehicles, heavy equipment, and golf carts. Capable of powering smartphones, tablets, and other USB-enabled electronic devices, the series is available in 12V, 12–24V, and 48V options with a normally open or normally closed magnetic cap, and is engineered to fit into traditional 12V power points with simple snap-in panel mounting.
Omnetics’ Micro ACME Triple Thread Ratcheting Circular Connectors feature lightweight aluminum ratchet-coupling shells that provide rugged, high-reliability, IP68 watertight connections for continuous signal integrity in harsh military, aerospace, security, and petroleum applications subject to high shock and vibration. The series also features alignment keys and insulators that enable quick, secure couplings and over-molded strain reliefs on the back of each connector that conform to the cabling, improving the overall reliability of the completed cable assembly.
TE Connectivity’s SEACON MINI-CON dry-mate electrical connectors are small diameter, high density connectors designed for use in high pressure marine applications, including: drilling systems, umbilical links, and submarines. Made of 316 stainless steel with glass reinforced epoxy (GRE) inserts and gold-plated copper alloy contacts, the series is available in 13 shell sizes with up to 203 contacts (including coax), and is rated for up to 16,000psi, 5,000VDC, and 23A. The series is also available with higher psi ratings and in optical, hybrid, self-wiping, reverse insert, pressure balanced oil-filled (PBOF), titanium, and Monel™ models upon request.
Binder’s M12 S- and T-coded Power Panel Mount Connectors are now available with plastic, prewired receptacles ideal for use in process and manufacturing automation applications in industrial networks. Designed to be threaded into panels or fixed with a locking nut, the series features IP67-rated protection from liquids and debris, gold-plated contacts with crimp terminations for low contact resistance, and is rated for up to 630VAC, 63VDC, and 12A per contact.
