Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical and electronic components, enclosures and rack systems, has announced the availability of the Techno TH392 waterproof connector with X-Dry technology. All cables are hydroscopic to some degree and will therefore absorb moisture that can collect inside the cable sheath, moving along its length and even crossing terminations in the cable. The X-Dry technology blocks moisture transmission across terminals, protecting electrical and electronic equipment.
The connectors have screw or piercing terminals and can accept cables with diameters from 8-12mm; maximum cable cross section is 4mm2 for screw terminals and 0.5-1.5mm2 for the piercing clip terminals. Water and dust protection is to IP68 at 3bar pressure from 30 minutes to two hours. Rated current is 17.5A, 450V, and operating temperature from -40 to +125degC.
