Electrical and electronic connector distributor Lane Electronics has made available a series of miniature circular connectors manufactured by Neutrik. Called etherCON, powerCON and opticalCON, the connectors have been designed to satisfy a wide range of industrial data and communication applications.
etherCON is a ruggedized and lockable RJ45 connector system optimized for industrial network applications. The connectors feature a diecast shell with what Neutrik describes as a unique chuck-type strain relief with versions and allow the assembly of already assembled conventional RJ45 cables.
Neutrik’s powerCONis a locking three conductor AC connector with contacts for line, neutral and pre-mating ground contact. It is an ideal replacement for appliance couplers when a rugged solution combined with a locking device is needed to guarantee a safe and reliable power connection.
With models based on, and compatible with standard LC and MTP® connectors, opticalCON is designed to overcome the weakness inherent in fibre-optic connector systems. Designed for difficult environments, these connectors guarantee a safe, dust protected and rugged connection. The opticalCONMTP® cable connector features a robust all-metal housing and heavy-duty strain relief. An innovative spherical dust cover protects the fibre from contamination and minimizes maintenance.
In addition to these connector ranges, Lane Electronics also holds large stocks of Neutrik’s chassis connectors, patch bays and cables, plugs, jacks and phono connectors.
