Waterproof connectors for field cable joining applications
A range of IP68 waterproof connectors have been launched by CamdenBoss that include one-piece construction to reduce the possibility of incorrect assembly. The heavy duty, robust and strong CPWP3 range features an integrated terminal block design so there are no small parts that might be dropped.
This makes them suitable for use in field cable joining applications where losing parts can create difficulties. The compact one-piece construction ensures ease of installation with colour-coded screws/terminals making wiring up easy, while the inclusion of Braille points ensures correct identification of connections in low light conditions.
The CPWP3 range includes three models – a waterproof field assembly T connector, a waterproof field assembly in-line connector and a 3-pole waterproof panel mount connector. Specifications include voltage and current ratings of 250V/16A, contact resistance of 10mΩ, insulation resistance of 500MΩ at 500VDC and temperature rating from -40 to 105°C. Contact/terminal material is nickel-plated brass and size OD (Outside Diameter) range for the T and in-line connectors is 5.5-8.5mm. For the panel mount connector, minimum wire size OD is 6, 10mm maximum.
Complementing the CPWP3 range is the CPWPES family of waterproof assembly splitters offering 3, 5 and 9 outputs from a 3-pole single input. These provide a compact, convenient, waterproof and robust method for connecting a feed cable to several outputs. The 3- and 5-way splitters offer a voltage rating of 400V at 20 and 17A respectively while the 9-way splitter is rated at 250V/10A.
Compliant with EN61984 and CE approved, the waterproof assembly connectors from CamdenBoss are useful for all field installation applications.
