Cyntech Components, a specialist supplier of electro-mechanical components and power supplies, is making available the new Y-Circ P connector series from Yamaichi Electronics. This metal-bodied circular connector design is mechanically and electrically compatible with industry comparable standard connectors but offers a significant space-saving advantage by being 11mm shorter in overall length than competitive solutions.
The Y-Circ P connector has a push-pull locking mechanism and is intended for applications requiring frequent connection and disconnection so has a specified endurance of greater than 5000 cycles. Electrically, its gold-plated brass contacts are rated with a maximum contact resistance of 5mO and the chromed-brass metal connector housings provide shielding of >75dB at 10MHz and >55bD at 1GHz. Easy and efficient assembly is ensured by a design that prevents the connector from being closed if parts are mounted incorrectly.
The Y-Circ P is a rugged connector suitable for use in harsh environments over an operating temperature range from -40oC to +120oC with humidity up to 95% at 60oC. The connector is also specified with an ingress protection rating of IP50 and a resistance to salt spray corrosion testing in excess of 144 hours. The Y-Circ P is also a mechanically robust connector that is resistant to vibration and shock (tested at 10-2000Hz, 15g and 100g, 6ms respectively).
Highlighting the prime benefit of this new connector from Yamaichi, Dave Mellor, managing director of Cyntech Components, said, “The shorter length of the mated connectors makes connection and disconnection in confined spaces quicker and easier. The smaller size also saves on material costs and helps make these quality components even more attractively priced.”
