Designed to cut machine assembly and maintenance costs to the minimum, the new CombiTac direqt family of modular connectors introduced by Stäubli features a Click-and-Connect system that enables all parts to be quickly assembled manually without the use of any special tools. The new connectors are said to offer a light, modern design incorporating the highest level of safety features, and can be fully customised to meet customer requirements. Each carrier and frame is coded, eliminating any possibility of assembly error or incorrect polarity mating between male and female connectors.
All configurations, whether for panel mount or housing applications, ensure a constant and reliable connection for signals, power and pneumatic coupling for up to 10,000 mating cycles says Staubli. Throughout this life cycle, the quality of the contacts remains at the highest possible level, providing constant low contact resistance and stable performance even in the presence of shock and vibration. Medium and high current contacts up to 350A are available, offering IP2X protection on both the male and female side, along with leakage-free pneumatic couplings (15 bar).
Staubli's established family of CombiTac connectors has been renamed CombiTac uniq, and is rated at up to 100,000 mating cycles. CombiTac direqt and CombiTac uniq connectors can be supplied ready assembled, including cable assembly if required. They can be quickly and easily configured online using the intuitive and award-winning CombiTac configurator at configurator.combitac.com. Both CombiTac series are said to be suitable for a wide range of applications in general industry, automation, automotive manufacturing and testing, medical and healthcare, rail, transport and logistics.
