Yamaichi Electronics introduces a new series of circular connectors “made in Germany” with a push-pull locking mechanism. It offers cost advantages due to material reduction and thus space saving design. Customers benefit from excellent support and service.
As an experienced connector manufacturer, Yamaichi Electronics Deutschland GmbH has developed a new circular connector series: Y-Circ® P. The series name stands for Circular Connector Push-Pull.
To permit fast, flexible production, the connector series is produced by Yamaichi Electronics in Germany. This location has been active in the area of connector manufacturing and cable assembly for years. So in addition to connectors, customer-specific cable assemblies can also be offered.
The push-pull locking mechanism permits the simple insertion and unlocking of the connector by pulling on the housing. High-quality contacts permit at least 5,000 plug cycles.
The Y-Circ P series can be connected to other existing series on the market, but it has clear advantages. For example, the connector is significantly shorter than the competing products, saving space.
The design of the shield contacts was also optimized. All half-shells are designed identically and cannot be confused anymore. That greatly simplifies the assembly of the connector, reducing the time and expense for assembly.
Yamaichi Electronics Deutschland GmbH starts with the B series of the connector. It has a protection rating of IP50 and can be ordered in a number of combinations. Initially, three different diameters will be available, each of which can be equipped with a different number of contacts.
The chrome-plated metal housing is high in quality and tough, so the connector is also suitable for use on visually demanding devices. The machined contacts mean that both secure data transmission and high currents are no problem.
Matthias Schuster, product manager for the Y-Circ P product family at Yamaichi Electronics, explains: “The Y-Circ P allows Yamaichi Electronics to open up new market segments and customers for whom other products from our company will also be interesting. We can also offer an interesting alternative made in Germany for customers already using a connector with a push-pull locking mechanism.”
