Circular multi-pole connectors that can offer IP68 sealing for use in a multitude of applications such as broadcasting, military, energy, marine, food processing, industrial, automotive & autosport, medical, oil & gas, rail, robotics and security were launched by Camden Boss at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show in Farnborough (Feb 6-8).
The CamCirc range features multiple options encompassing various body sizes and styles as well as contact configurations from 2 to 19 poles.
Offering a rugged, high quality and high-performance interconnection solution, CamCirc products will not disconnect when the cable is put under stress or load. The connectors are also marked for ease of locating a connection.
The connectors are based on push-pull technology that creates a vacuum seal when mating halves are plugged together to ensure that cables cannot be disconnected even if the cable is pulled. Disconnection is only achieved by pulling back the outer sleeve of the connector. All the connectors are keyed so that only correctly matched halves can be mated.
The range comprises six types of receptacle sockets – four fixed (types B, E, L and M) and two cable mounting (types S and T). These offer equivalents for Fischer connectors (types D, DBEU, DEE, DEU, K and KE respectively).
Any plug will fit any socket style provided they are correct in size and number of poles. Cable mounting receptacle styles enable in-line connections to be made quickly and easily.
Flat or protruding receptacle panel styles enable a choice of easier location in harsh or low light conditions or a more compact finish for tight spaces.
Four size options – 102, 103, 1031 and 104 – offer direct alternatives to Fischer A 102, A 103 etc. types.
Cable mount plugs feature a cable clamp set to hold cables and wires in place when the pluggable half of the connection system is assembled and the contacts soldered.
The clamp creates the seal on the plug side of the connection (if environmental version is used) and these are supplied in sizes to correspond with the plugs and cables they will fit. Cable clamps, sold separately from receptacles and plugs, are available in three types – shielded, unshielded and environmental, the latter being required for IP68 rating.
Housing material throughout the range is chrome-plated brass to resist corrosion, with contacts of gold-plated brass to give reliable connection.
CamdenBoss’s new CamCirc premium range of circular, multi-pole, push-pull, connectors is ideal for use in all outdoor/harsh environments and offers industry recognised sizes and styles to provide a strong alternative to, and full compatibility with, Fischer and other competing products.
