Circular connectors shown by Binder UK at Southern Electronics 2014 will include the new 770 NCC that is protected to IP67 when not connected without the need of a protective cap. This makes it suitable for medical equipment, portable and hand-held measuring equipment, control devices and anywhere that needs rapid set-up changes. The design achieves a product life in excess of 5,000 mating cycles.
The electrical contacts are protected from water, dust and foreign particles by a spring-mounted lid when unmated. When the cable plug is mated the contact cover is pushed inside the panel-mount receptacle body, the contacts engage and the connector is locked with a quarter turn of a bayonet-locking collar.
Visitors can also see the Binder 620 and 720 series of low cost, snap-in IP67 circular connectors. These plastic, modular connectors are lightweight and compact. Internal seals provide protection to IP67. The snap-in mating provides a safe connect and disconnect action.
