Lightweight, high strength, corrosion-resistant IP68 connector coupling system
Amphenol distributor Inelco Hunter has announced the availability of the Sine Systems’ ecomate® Aquarius™ Fathom Lock Series of waterproof connectors for industrial applications. In a mated condition, the system offers an IP67/69K rating, enabling immersion in water to a depth of 1.8M for one hour.
The ecomate® Aquarius™ connectors incorporate the latest technology, offering a high-impact, thermoplastic design, with the advantages of a lightweight, lower-cost, sealed connector system. The Auto-Lock IP68 system offers significant time savings while ensuring an easy mating/unmating process of the plug to receptacle.
The connectors are ideal for indoor/outdoor applications, and the MIL-DTL-26482-based design provides a quick and reliable bayonet coupling, verified by the tactile and audible clicking sound of the locking mechanism. To un-mate, a simple 20° twist of the coupling ring on the plug will separate it from the receptacle.
The Amphenol IP68 Auto-Locking, Fathom Lock Coupling System offers high strength, impact resistance and UV/Corrosion resistance, passing the 500 Hour Salt Spray Test. Applications will include harsh conditions within wet or sea spray environments including full IP68 immersion.
The ecomate® IP65 System, with a circular bayonet and auto-locking or a rapid-coupling system option now has IMPROVED maximum amperage/voltage ranges of 45-300A/600-900V (depending on the series) and remains an ideal option for a wide range of indoor/outdoor industrial applications as well as factory automation, industrial, heavy equipment, heavy duty machinery, transportation, and entertainment/lighting markets.
