binder announces the addition of a power connector to its HEC series of connectors designed specifically for outdoor use. Capable of handling up to 32A at a rated voltage of 600V, the Series 696 HEC power connector is available in both cable and panel mount formats with 4+PE silver plated male or female contacts.
The binder Series 696 connectors are manufactured from a tough UL 94V-0 rated polyamide and incorporate a three-point bayonet locking system that makes for quick and secure fastening. They are waterproof and dustproof to IP68/IP69k and can withstand the levels of harsh treatment found in applications like agriculture and construction where the use of high-pressure washing is commonplace. Other applications include traffic and signalling systems, process engineering plants, water purification facilities and recycling equipment.
These HEC connectors feature a robust and safe coding mechanism to prevent incorrect orientation and, according to binder, they are suitable for over 1000 mating cycles. The use of a variety of crimp contacts ensures a secure, vibration-proof termination.
