The Buccaneer range of environmentally sealed power and data connectors from Bulgin has been extended with the introduction of the new Buccaneer 4000 Series. Building on the Buccaneer 6000 and 7000 Series of quick locking connectors, this latest offering provides the same twist lock coupling and ‘fit and forget’ connectivity in a more compact format, making it easier for product engineers to integrate them into their system designs.
The Buccaneer 4000 Series has been developed to provide sealing to IP67, IP68 and IP69K standards - ensuring true environmental protection in harsh conditions - as well as to withstand vibrations, shocks and corrosion to EN/IEC 60068 requirements. Each unit has a UV-resistant, UL94-V0 flammability rated plastic body equipped with a simple and efficient twist locking mechanism, allowing a secure connection without the need for specialist tools.
Currently available in 3-, 8- and 12-pole configurations rated to 13A, 600V - plus a micro-B USB data connector - it offers a choice of solder and crimp contacts, and can accommodate cables from 3 to 7mm in diameter. Together with a choice of inline or panel mounting options, this makes the Buccaneer 4000 Series well suited to a range of marine, industrial, transport and infrastructure applications, especially where space is at a premium.
