CamdenBoss is launching a premium range of CamCirc circular multi-pole connectors that can offer IP68 waterproof sealing. The new range features multiple options encompassing various body sizes and styles, as well as contact configurations from two to 19 poles. Applications include industrial, robotics, food processing, broadcasting, military, energy, marine, automotive and autosport, medical, oil and gas, rail and security.
Offering a rugged, high-quality and high-performance interconnection range, CamCirc products will not disconnect when the cable is subjected to a load. The connectors are also marked for ease of locating a connection.
CamCirc connectors are based on push-pull technology that creates a vacuum seal when mating halves are plugged together to ensure that cables cannot be disconnected even if the cable is pulled. Disconnection is only achieved by pulling back the outer sleeve of the connector. All the connectors are keyed so that only correctly matched halves can be mated.
The range comprises six types of receptacle sockets - four fixed (types B, E, L and M) and two cable-mounting (types S and T). These offer equivalents for Fischer connectors (types D, DBEU, DEE, DEU, K and KE, respectively). Any plug will fit any socket style provided they are correct in size and number of poles. Cable-mounting receptacle styles enable in-line connections to be made quickly and easily. Flat or protruding receptacle panel styles enable a choice of easier location in harsh or low-light conditions, or a more compact finish for tight spaces.
Four size options offer direct alternatives to Fischer 102, 103, 1031 and 104.
Cable-mount plugs feature a cable clamp set to hold cables and wires in place when the pluggable half of the connection system is assembled and the contacts soldered. The clamp creates the seal on the plug side of the connection (if the environmental version is used) and these are supplied in sizes to accommodate various cable diameters. Cable clamps, sold separately from receptacles and plugs, are available in three types: shielded, unshielded and environmental, the latter being required for IP68 rating.
The housing material throughout the range is chrome-plated brass to resist corrosion, with contacts of gold-plated brass to give reliable connection.
These new CamdenBoss CamCirc premium circular, multi-pole, push-pull connectors are said to be well suited to use in all outdoor/harsh environments, while offering industry-recognised sizes and styles to provide a strong alternative to, and be full compatibility with, Fischer products.
