Industrial connector specialist Electroustic has teamed up with environmentally-sealed component manufacturer Bulgin to supply, design, prototype and manufacture customised cable assembly and box build solutions.
As Bulgin’s technical distributor, Electroustic will supply all the products from the connectivity expert’s catalogue. Thanks to the close-knit collaboration between the two companies, Electroustic offers bespoke solutions for a multitude of applications, from industrial automation to marine, petrochemical and surveillance.
Bulgin’s range of circular connectors, IECs, fuseholders, battery holders and vandalresistant switches are all designed and manufactured in house. The extremely robust, environmentally-sealed Buccaneer series of connectors are IP66, IP68 and IP69K rated, providing an ideal solution for industrial power and data applications.
The IP69K rating means they can withstand water from high pressure or steam cleaning, making them suitable for use in environments such as food and beverage production, where sanitation and cleanliness are cardinal requirements. This versatile connector range also includes Ethernet, USB and mini USB connectors, as well as ATEX Zone 2 and Zone 22 rated options.
“The main reason for making Electroustic our technical partner is the company’s understanding of manufacturing process and customer service,” explained David Luu, product marketing analyst at Bulgin. “Just like Bulgin, Electroustic likes to work closely with its customers and build long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships. We’re certain that our cooperation will result in benefits for both current and future clients.”
“Demand for high ingress protection connectors has been on the rise in recent years,” commented Amy Wells, marketing manager of Electroustic. “We were keen to broaden our offering to include Bulgin’s waterproof and IP69K connectors, which are at home in some of the harshest and most demanding industrial environments on Earth.”
This partnership will make its debut at Southern Manufacturing 2015, where Bulgin experts will join the Electroustic team on Stand G26.
