Smiths Interconnect’ REP Series is a range of high reliability, multi-pole, sealed rectangular plastic connectors which comply with the most stringent rail standards. Available now from Aerco, the series is protected to IP66 and IP67. These interconnects deliver high performance and capacity, plus the shock, vibration and smoke and fire protection demanded by the modern rail industry, Applications include sensors, brakes, signalling, alarms, doors, lighting, air conditioning, seats, passenger information and cabin equipment.

The use of the company’s well-proven Hypertac hyperboloid contact technology ensures low insertion and extraction forces, immunity to fretting corrosion, a long life cycle in harsh environments and superior performance, combined with 30% higher current carrying capacity than standard contacts of the same size.

No special tools are required for assembly and connection is fast, simple and secure with push to mate and press and release to un-mate.

Because a single sized contact caters for cables from 0.50mm² to 2.5mm² (24-12AWG), the series offers a significant cost of ownership savings in terms of reduction in inventory holding and maintenance costs.
