CombiTac connectors can house a very wide variety of contact types in a single casing. Choosing which contacts to use and where to place them is now much easier with Stäubli’s upgraded Configurator tool. This intuitive online service can be accessed from any web browser, enabling designers to quickly and easily build up a CombiTac connector to meet their precise requirements. Realistic 3D simulation shows how the connector will appear, allowing users to explore the final product and review assembly dimensions. Modules can be chosen from a wide range of contact types including power, signal, data, thermocouple, coaxial, fibre optic and bus connections and even media such as pneumatics and hydraulics. Interactive graphical assistance is available throughout the configuration process. 3D STEP data files and parts lists can be downloaded to simplify the design process. The Configurator can be accessed from the dedicated CombiTac website at configurator.combitac.com.
