A new connector system from Binder has a design that protects the contacts to IP67 when not connected, without the need of a protective cap. Originally designed for medical equipment, the Binder 770 Series NCC (non-connected closed) range will also prove ideal for all types of portable or handheld measuring equipment, control devices and other applications where it is an advantage to make rapid set-up changes. The efficiency of the design achieves a product life in excess of 5,000 mating cycles.
Series 770 is a panel-mount receptacle in which the electrical contacts are protected from water, dust and foreign particles by a spring-mounted lid when unmated. When the cable plug is mated the contact cover is pushed inside the receptacle body, the contacts engage and the connector is locked with a quarter turn of a bayonet-locking collar. The connectors have eight gold-plated contacts and are rated to 2A and 175V.
