HIROSE Electric Co. Ltd offers its new robust lightweight circular EM30M Series. The series is perfect for connecting medical equipment, wind power generation systems, and factory automation machinery applications. The push-on bayonet lock save users valuable time and lessen the risk of electrical shock with the IP2X rated specification created for contact touch protection against access to hazardous parts.

With the use of high-quality plastic material, the circular connector provides resistance to rough handling, for high current applications. Also, the multi-point contact spring component helps lessen contact resistance and promotes a high current flow.

The connector series provides two options of non-waterproof or waterproof versions, the latter achieved with the IP67 specification, which offers superior levels of dustproof and waterproof protection due to the built-in O-ring capable of withstanding liquid intrusion.

A further benefit is that commercial tools can be used for this series. Termination of the crimp contact is quick and simple using standard JIS crimping tools. A contact removal tool is offered to quickly remove the contact from the housing.
