Multicontact connectors are devices used to join circuits within the industrial sector and control electronics. Today we will go into more detail analyzing 5 characteristics of multi-contact connectors with combi-tech system.
Although, this type of connectors not only have multiple applications within the industrial sector, but also in robotics, aeronautics, domotics, access control, spectacular lighting, railways and vending and control machines.
5 characteristics of multi-contact connectors
You may already know, but multi-contact connectors have become essential parts in each of the sectors mentioned above. If you’re wondering why, you’ll find the answer in the features they have. What do you think about listing them? Well, let’s get started!
The latest in design and materials
These devices are generally equipped with the latest connectivity technology because they are made with the best materials and the latest design and manufacturing techniques.
They provide a quality connection
We are not exaggerating when we say that these connectors are the most reliable and offer very high performance.
For this and other reasons, they guarantee an optimal and effective connection. In fact, we dare to say that multi-contact connectors are some of the best natural substitutes for the connectivity we all dream of.
They are versatile
Another surprising feature of these devices is their versatility. They are usually compatible with Socapex – Amphenol, something that technicians in the industrial sector are very grateful for.
Offer good resistance
Some models are designed to withstand high temperatures, others to resist powerful vibrations and others to work in inhospitable atmospheric environments.
So choosing the right multi-contact connectors will depend on your needs and where you are going to use them.
Yes, as you read, these connectors can also be combined (depending on customer needs) with other electrical, RF coaxial, fiber optic and fluid connectors all in one device. Isn’t that great?
This is good news for workers in the industrial sector who, apart from being quite demanding, require custom connectors to carry out their activities in a more practical way.
To achieve this, it is important that you use a service specialized in connector combinations.
Types of multi-contact connectors
There are different types of multi-contact connectors, but the most popular are the following:
Circular: as their name indicates they have a circular shape and their insulators come in 5 different sizes (T-10, T-20, T-30, T-40 and T-70). Not to mention that they are capable of withstanding severe vibration environments.
Modules: they can be electric, coaxial, fiber optic and compressed and vacuum air, and are usually made with thermostable materials, so they can withstand temperatures from -40ºC to +120ºC.
Rectangular: basically they are modules that are mounted in solid aluminium housings and tightened by means of staples. In them, modules of 2, 3, 5 up to 8 contacts can be put together.
Carter: these are purely industrial or watertight connectors with IP-68 degree of protection, i.e. they are water resistant and are manufactured in multiple sizes (with insulators from 50mm to 300mm).
