Bulgin – an Elektron Technology connectivity brand – has unveiled the latest addition to its rugged Buccaneer range of connectors. Designed to provide engineers and product design professionals with greater flexibility in systems design the all new Buccaneer 6000 Series of waterproof power, signal and data connectors features a unique and easy to use, patent pending pushpull locking system, that connects up to 10 times faster than a traditional screw thread mechanism.
This latest addition to the Buccaneer range is designed to withstand the harshest environments and meets IP66, IP68 and IP69K standards.
The Buccaneer 6000 Series includes data (USB or Ethernet), signal and power versions up to 16A, 277V, and complements the popular screw thread Buccaneer range. It is available in fully interchangeable metal and plastic constructions and the body mouldings and pin carriers have been specifically designed to create a robust interface while avoiding damage during coupling. This guarantees a correctly sealed connection – even where access is restricted.
Stuart Hutchings, Marketing Manager for Bulgin, commented: “Elektron’s innovative design team has made a significant breakthrough with the introduction of the Buccaneer 6000 Series of connectors, giving a robust, fully waterproof and fast connection in a range of challenging environments. This makes these adaptable connectors ideal for a wide range of applications, from industrial automation to food processing.
Elektron’s new series of connectors will be made available on a global basis through the Bulgin distribution network.
