Binder adds to its HEC (harsh environment connector) series
Designed specifically for outdoor use, the series 696 is the latest addition to binder’s HEC series of connectors. The series 696 power connector is capable of handling up to 32A at a rated voltage of 600V. The series 696 HEC power connector is available in both cable and panel mount formats with 4+PE silver plated male or female contacts.
The binder series 696 HEC connectors are manufactured from a tough UL 94V-0 rated polyamide and incorporate a three-point bayonet locking system that makes for quick and secure fastening. They are waterproof and dustproof to IP68/IP69k and can withstand the harsh conditions found in applications like agriculture and construction where the use of high-pressure washing is commonplace. Other applications include traffic and signalling systems, process engineering plants, water purification facilities and recycling equipment.
These HEC connectors feature a robust and safe coding mechanism to prevent incorrect orientation and, according to binder, they are suitable for over 1000 mating cycles. The use of a variety of crimp contacts ensures a secure, vibration-proof termination.
