Waterproof version makes a splash for push-pull connector range

Yamaichi_preview edit_tmbThis IP68-compliant waterproof T-series addition to its push-pull connector series Y-Circ P connector family is one of the highlights of the Yamaichi Electronics stand at Southern 2018

The waterproof series is based can be connected to existing circular push-pull connectors already on the market. It features a one-piece collet for error-free installation and an optimised mechanism for reliable locking. This provides for higher mating cycles, says the company, and there is a special pin assignment for high-speed data transmission, providing interference-free transmission of signals up to 10Gbit/s.

Miniaturisation reduces cost, space requirements and installation effort. The connector’s jack is housed in the same reduced installation space as the basic compact jack of the company’s B-series, together with contact carrier and housing coding. The IP68 sealing has similar dimensions, but it also integrates the entire locking mechanism and ensures the re-use of the B-series insulators.

Optimised cable sealing makes installation robust and fast. Cable sealing is a single collet, compared with other commercially available connectors with up to three parts, to simplify installation and minimise the risk of damage to the sealing.

The design also includes an optimised locking system, with two long hooks to provide the same coding as with the B-series.
