Prioritizing safe power

TE Connectivity is unveiling a new addition to its Dynamic series of first mate last break connectors. The D-3000 FMLB 5.08mm option offers FMLB solutions from signal level circuitry to power circuit connectivity up to 15A in a ruggedized package.

FMLB connectors increase safety by allowing the ground to be established prior to any power connections and maintaining the ground connection until after the power connections are broken. TE already offers FMLB connectors with pitches of 2.50, 6.35, 10.16 and 16.00mm.

The new D-3000 FMLB connector resists vibration and mechanical shocks and is IP20-certified. It also boasts 0.38μm gold plated contacts to ensure high conductivity. Multiple points of contact provide a stable electrical and mechanical connection while the goldplated contacts enable low insertion forces.

Applications for the D-3000 FMLB connector include industrial automation and control, data communication, power distribution, drives, production equipment, robotics and elevators and escalators.
