CONEC Reduces Lead Times For One-Piece, Solid-Body IP67-rated D-sub Connectors
News Release from:
CONEC Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH

CONEC has reduced the lead time of its one-piece IP67-rated D-sub series connectors to less than six weeks, compared to competing products with 12 week lead times. Now available from stock to six weeks depending on shipping quantity, CONEC's reliable solid-body D-sub connectors reduce leakage paths with a reduced parts count, and provide a watertight connection to the panel with a silicone O-ring seal.
The D-sub connector's rugged design protects against mechanical impacts and vibration during installation and operation.
The one-piece, solid-body D-sub connectors are ideal for standard and high-performance applications including industrial machinery, medical equipment, test and measurement equipment and communications equipment.
We have significantly reduced our lead times to less than six weeks for the solid-body D-sub connectors because of our advanced modular connector designs. Others in the industry saw the D-sub connector as an older technology that couldn't be improved upon, however we saw the opportunity to make a more reliable device with a shorter lead time, said Jim Lieb, vice president, sales, at CONEC. Because of the reduced number of components, the solid-body D-sub provides a more rugged, more reliable connection, particularly for industrial, outdoor or harsh environment applications..
CONEC ensures high performance with gold-plated machined contacts. The connector is available in standard, high-density and combination D-sub configurations, and with solder-cup, right-angle and straight terminations.
The solid-body, nickel-plated, zinc diecast housing conforms to current solder requirements for RoHS-compliant solder temperatures. The entire product range is UL Listed, rated to IP67 and can be mated to standard shell sizes 1 through 5 in D-sub standard, D-sub high density and mixed-layout configurations.
The IP67-rated D-sub connectors ensure a continuously secure connection, are dustproof, and protect against temporary submersion in water.
Connector pricing is dependent on configuration selection starting at $6.00 each in OEM quantities, with a lead time of stock to 6 weeks.
