If weight considerations are important in the development of your equipment, connectors made of aluminium become inevitable, because they are 50% lighter than typical metal connectors. Available in a wide range of colours, the Alulite connectors from Fischer Connectors SA easily integrate with product designs, while also offering a flexible colour coding system.
Rugged, 360deg EMC shielded, sealed up to IP68 (2m/24h) or even hermetic, they can withstand harsh conditions. Suitable for frequent connect/disconnect operations, the plugs and receptacles are engineered to endure more than 5,000 mating cycles within a temperature range of 50degC to 150degC. Additionally, the anodised finished connector housing is engineered with an aluminium alloy specifically chosen for its anticorrosion property.
Accepting cable diameters from 1.4 to 10.7mm, the new Alulite series is available in multipole from two to 27 pins with solder, PCB or crimp contacts and, upon request, in coax, triax or hybrid contact configurations. The choice of body styles is wide: standard-sized or short plugs, push-pull locking mechanism or emergency release system, front projecting or flush receptacles, front or rear mounting models.
