Waterproof connectors are one-piece construction to aid assembly

IP68 waterproof connectors from CamdenBoss offer a range of benefits including innovative one-piece construction to reduce the possibility of incorrect assembly, says the company.

The heavy duty, robust CPWP3 range features an integrated terminal block design so there are no small parts that might be dropped. This feature is a particular benefit in field cable joining applications where losing parts can cause problems. The compact, one-piece construction ensures ease of installation with colour-coded screws/terminals for ease of wiring. Braille points ensure the correct identification of connections in low light conditions.

There are three models in the CPWP3 range: a waterproof field assembly T connector, a waterproof field assembly in-line connector and a three-pole waterproof panel mount connector. Specifications include voltage and current ratings of 250V/16A, contact resistance of 10mOhm, insulation resistance of 500MOhm at 500V DC and temperature rating from -40 to +105°C. Contact/terminal material is nickel-plated brass and outside diameter range for the T and in-line connectors is 5.5 to 8.5mm. For the panel mount connector, minimum wire size OD is 6.0 and 10mm maximum.

The complementary CPWPES family of waterproof assembly splitters offering three, five and nine outputs from a three-pole single input. They provide a compact, convenient, waterproof and extremely robust method for connecting a feed cable to several outputs. The three- and five-way splitters offer a voltage rating of 400V at 20A and 17A respectively while the nine-way splitter is rated at 250V/10A.

The waterproof assembly connectors comply with EN61984 and are CE-approved.
