Binder’s Easy Locking Connector (ELC) is recommended for sensitive homecare applications. Designed to be robust and biocompatible, it meets the requirements for electromechanical connectivity in medical devices.
Features include snap-in locking and an asymmetric hexagon mating area which aids safe operation and long service life. Biocompatible, non-irritant to skin and resistant to disinfectants, it suits the patient environment. The shock-proof and vibration-resistant ELC is available in four, eight and 12-pole versions rated at 2A and 250/150V, respectively.
The ELC is designed for over 5,000 mating cycles. Mating is intuitive and blind mating is possible by non-professionals. Alignment of the plug to socket is predetermined by the asymmetric hexagon mating area. Snap-in hooks ensure simple, effective locking. The latter is easy for the operator to recognize by the snapped-in hooks.
IP54 protects against contact, dust and splash water from all directions. The female panel mount connector protects against splashed water/liquids and accidental electrical contact, even when disconnected.
