Bulgin extends miniature circular power connectors to double options
Bulgin has extended its Buccaneer 4000 series of miniature circular power connectors to meet the growing demand for power connector solutions that are both ultra-small and highly reliable, explains the company. Adding to the existing three, eight and 12-pole connectors the range extension comprises two-, four-, six- and 10-pole configurations; more than doubling the options available, says Bulgin.
Modern applications demand increased flexibility as well as high power density and reduced weight and all in a small footprint, explains Bulgin. The 4000 series is capable of carrying a variety of voltages and currents throughout modern systems.
The cost-effective connectors are also highly rugged and suitable for applications where long-term durability is a necessity. Able to withstand vibrations, shocks and corrosion to EN/IEC 60068 requirements and salt spray for marine applications, the Buccaneer 4000 series connectors are also capable of being submerged in water to the IP68 rating and able to withstand powerful jet sprays / high pressure washing to IP69k standards when mated.
Additionally, the connectors have a UV-resistant, UL94V-0 flammability-rated plastic body equipped with a bayonet locking mechanism, allowing users to make a secure connection without the need for specialist tools.
The extended miniature circular power connector range joins Bulgin’s portfolio of pushbutton, piezo, slide, toggle and rocker switches designed for a variety of industrial applications.
Bulgin manufactures a range of rugged connectors, fuse holders, battery holders, switches and indicators designed for use in the most challenging of environments. Headquartered in Cambridge, UK, Bulgin also has offices in all key global regions and an extensive sales and distribution network spanning 65 countries. Its manufacturing facilities are based in the UK and Tunisia.
