Weidmüller connectors offer three innovations in one product

Weidmüller connectors offer three innovations in one product

With their SNAP IN connection technology, versatile modular construction and ultrafast ex-works delivery for both standard and customised versions, Weidmüller says the new OMNIMATE 4.0 connectors set new standards for speed and convenience, giving users a decisive competitive advantage. The two-part connectors are designed for wire-to-board applications and are available with up to twelve poles.

The SNAP IN technology used in OMNIMATE 4.0 connectors reduces wiring time while increasing connection security, even when compared with other cage-clamp systems, asserts the company. The connectors are supplied ready for wiring and users simply insert a pre-stripped cable end. The connector then snaps shut – like a mousetrap – and securely clamps the wire. An audible click and a green marker confirm that the connection has been made correctly. No tools are required.

Should it be necessary to remove a connection, this is equally fast and easy. The clamping latch is simply lifted with a finger to release the wire and, once again, no tools are needed.

Thanks to their modular design, OMNIMATE 4.0 connectors can be supplied with any number of poles from two to twelve and can also incorporate a Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) connection. Currently available types are suitable for use with solid or flexible cables, with or without ferrules, from 0.5 mm2 to 2.5 mm2. Further pitch sizes will shortly be added to the range, and all types will be intermixable to allow complete freedom in the configuration of custom connectors.

For even greater convenience and speed, OMNIMATE 4.0 connectors are supported by the Weidmüller Configurator. This means that users can specify and order their connector assemblies including any special printing requirements with just a few mouse clicks, secure in the knowledge that the specification will be checked instantly for completeness and accuracy. The configurator can also import requirements direct from popular CAE packages, including Zuken E3 and Eplan Electric P8.
