Waterproof push-lock circular connectors from Astute Astute Electronics now offers Amphenol LTW’s X-Lok series waterproof (IPX8) circular connectors which integrate a push-lock mechanism together with audible and tactile feedback, delivering an excellent blind mating option for a quick and easy operation. Devices are rated at 5, 10 and 20A, and 300 V AC/V DC for 1000 cycles.

Including a large variety of receptacles and cable assemblies with different connector sizes and pin configurations from 2 to 18 contacts, the X-Lok series is suitable for both power and data applications. In order to meet industry standards, X-Lok connectors are designed according to UL2238 plus 50e and are IEC compliant. Devices not only use UL-F1 rated thermoplastic materials to limit damage due to long-term UV exposure, but also offer excellent performance in harsh high-temperature and high-humidity environments. Moreover, a ruggedised design passes free-fall and crushing test for your robustness consideration.

Gary Evans, e-mech divisional manager at Astute Electronics comments: “These connectors simplify mating in awkward circumstances, and deliver exceptional performance in rugged applications.”
