Harwin is announcing a new size within its commercial Mil-C-5015 connector range, plus the availability of end caps and rubber bushing attachments to suit the entire product family.
New size 12S Mil-C-5015 connectors increase design flexibility and add to Harwin's existing 10SL and 14S-sized parts. Devices can be terminated as cable connectors, straight-plug or panel-mount products. Applications for this product family include robotics, machine tools, welding equipment, extension leads, power cords and industrial and agricultural vehicles, plus mass transit and COTS applications where Mil C qualification is not mandatory.
End caps are available in two different versions. One style has an inner thread, while the other has an exterior thread, so it is possible to either screw the cap into or onto the connector. The rubber bushings enable IP67 sealing to be achieved, protecting the connector from water, dust and chemical ingress. End caps are manufactured from an aluminium alloy and are fully RoHS-compliant and competitively priced.
Product Manager Paul Gillam comments: "The new size plus the availability of industry-standard complementary headers and bushings mean that these new commercial Mil-C-5015 style connectors can be used in a wide range of applications. To ensure the end cap is not lost, a sturdy aluminium chrome chain has been applied, meaning it is firmly attached to the connector at all times."
