Binder just announced an addition to its RD24 connector portfolio with the UL approved Series 692/693 connectors. These incorporate a “Vario” cable outlet designed to accommodate cables with diameters from 7 to 17mm. These RD24 connectors will suit a wide variety of applications including power connections for pressure and temperature transducers, welding equipment, CCTV, security installations and control systems.
According to Binder UK Managing Director, David Phillips, users would previously have needed three different connector sizes to handle this range of cable diameters. “Now, thanks to the “Vario” outlet, just one connector will do the job”. Says Phillips. “Our design features an onion ring seal which has multiple, separable seals which, when separated, fits various cable diameters.” David Phillips adds.
Two specifications are available – 4 pole (16A, 400V) and 7 pole (10A, 250V) – both of which have a pre-engaging earth contact. binder is offering male and female versions for in-line mating or connection to standard panel-mount receptacles.
Manufactured from durable PBT with silver plated brass and bronze pins and contacts respectively, the new RD24 connectors are protected to IP67 when mated and locked. Options are available for screw, crimp and solder termination and contact resistance is ≤5mΩ.
binder has designed these RD24 connectors to operate across a wide temperature range and more than 500 mating cycles.
