Bulgin, an Elektron Technology connectivity brand, has unveiled the latest addition to its rugged Buccaneer range of connectors, giving engineers and product design professionals even greater flexibility in systems design. The all new Buccaneer 6000 Series of waterproof power, signal and data connectors features a ‘unique’ and easy to use, patent-pending push-pull locking system, that connects up to ten times faster than a traditional screw thread mechanism. This latest addition to the popular Buccaneer range is designed to withstand the harshest environments and meets IP66, IP68 and IP69K standards.
The Buccaneer 6000 Series includes data (USB or Ethernet), signal and power versions up to 16A, 277V, and complements the popular screw thread Buccaneer range. Available in fully interchangeable metal and plastic constructions, the body mouldings and pin carriers have been specifically designed to create a robust interface while avoiding damage during coupling. This guarantees a correctly sealed connection – even where access is restricted.
Stuart Hutchings, marketing manager, Bulgin, said: “Elektron’s innovative design team has made a significant breakthrough with the introduction of the Buccaneer 6000 Series of connectors, giving a robust, fully waterproof and fast connection in a range of challenging environments. This makes these adaptable connectors ideal for a wide range of applications, from industrial automation to food processing.”
John Wilson, CEO of Elektron Technology, added: “This is a triumph for Elektron Technology’s investment in innovation and our product development team, delivering cleverly engineered, well-designed products in response to clear market needs. I expect these new connectors to be in great demand for a wide range of potential applications. These connectors are our easiest yet to use and they look good too.”Electropages - Electronics Components News, From Leading Electronics Distributors. More news from Bulgin
