Female panel mount connector protects to IP67 when unmated

binder UK has announced a key addition to its 770 Series NCC connector system. It is a female panel mount connector specifically designed to be front fastened for easy installation.

The NCC (non-connected closed) connector system protects the contacts to IP67 when not connected without the need of a protective cap. The contacts are protected from water, dust and foreign particles by a spring-mounted lid when unmated. When the cable plug is mated, the contact cover is pushed inside the receptacle body, the contacts engage and the connector is locked with a quarter turn of a bayonet-locking collar. According to binder the efficiency of the design means a product life of more than 5000 mating cycles.

Originally designed for medical equipment, the Binder 770 Series NCC range is suitable for all types of portable or hand-held measuring equipment, control devices and other applications where it is an advantage to make rapid set-up changes.

The connectors have eight gold-plated contacts, are rated to 2A and 175V in solder and dip-solder versions and cater for cable sizes from 2.5mm to 8mm diameter.
