Light, strong, corrosion resistant coupling

Inelco Hunter has announced availability of Sine Systems’ ecomate Aquarius Fathom Lock series of waterproof connectors for industrial applications. In a mated condition, the system offers an IP67/69K rating, enabling 1.8m immersion into water for one hour.

The connectors offer a high-impact, thermoplastic design, with the advantages of a lightweight, lower-cost, sealed connector system. The Auto-Lock IP68 system offers time savings while ensuring an easy mating/ unmating process of the plug to receptacle.

The connectors suit indoor/outdoor applications and the MIL-DTL-26482-based design provides a quick and reliable bayonet coupling, verified by the tactile and audible click of the locking mechanism. To un-mate, a simple 20deg twist of the plug’s coupling ring separates it from the receptacle.

Regarding UV/corrosion resistance, the connector passes the 500-hour salt spray test. Applications include harsh conditions within wet or sea spray environments including full IP68 immersion.

With improved maximum amperage/ voltage ranges of 45 to 300A/600 to 900V (depending on series) the product finds uses in factory automation, industrial, heavy equipment, heavy duty machinery, transportation and entertainment/lighting markets.
