Easy locking connector ensures no miss-mating
The easy locking connector system (ELC) from Binder Connectors is now being distributed by Foremost Electronics. Designed for a variety of applications in medical systems, the binder ELC series 570 has an intuitive locking system to ensure positive mating with miss-mating being prevented owing to a mating position clearly defined by the “shape” of the mating area.
The ELC series 570 connector features a PA66 plastic housing, has 12 gold plated contacts for 0.25 mm squared wires and is rated at 2A, 150V. The connector has been designed to have a working life of more than 5000 mating cycles to ensure long and reliable operation in applications where equipment is regularly connected and disconnected, a common requirement in applications across the medical sector.
The female panel mount connector provides protection against the ingress of liquids, water splash and accidental electrical contact and when mated the new easy locking connector offers protection to IP54.
Alan Vincent, sales director, Foremost, said: “Clinical and patient monitoring equipment is often portable and used in many locations. A reliable and fool-proof connector system is a must in these environments. The mating system on the new Binder ELC connector satisfies these requirements as well as being proofed against water splashing when in use.
