binder Genalog News - IP67 Rated even when unmated
binder, a leading supplier of industrial circular connectors, is adding protective caps for the cable connectors to its NCC (Not Connected Closed) 670- and 770-series portfolio. Their task is to prevent the ingress of particles and humidity when the interface is disconnected. The protective caps are equipped with holding straps that can be easily attached to the cable connectors.
If a connection has to be released during use, such as for inspection or maintenance, this reduces the environmental protection for the period of work. Protective caps for binder's 670- and 770-series cable connectors reliably protect the components against any ingress of dust and liquids when unmated. Therefore the requirements of protection degree IP67 will be met.
The 670 series includes cable plugs and flange sockets. The flange sockets have an IP54 degree of protection when unplugged and an IP67 degree of protection when plugged in. The connectors are available with 5 gold-plated contacts and are designed for a rated current of 2A at 50V. They have a plastic housing, a bayonet lock and a solder or dip solder connection. The connection cross-section is 0.25 mm² with a limit temperature of -25°C to +85°C.

These reliable circular connectors in cable and flange versions with bayonet locking correspond to protection class IP67 when mated. The flange version offers IP67 protection even when unmated. 770 series connectors have 8 gold-plated contacts with a rated current of 2 A each. Cable glands are suitable for cables with a diameter of 2.5 to 4 mm, 4 to 6 mm and 6 to 8 mm. Users can expect more than 5000 mating cycles.
