Easy locking connector cannot be miss-mated

Foremost Electronics, the Essex based specialist distributor of electromechanical components, has announced the availability of the new easy locking connector system (ELC) from Binder Connectors.

Designed for a wide variety of applications in the critical area of medical systems, the binder ELC series 570 has an intuitive locking system to ensure positive mating with miss-mating being prevented thanks to a mating position clearly defined by the “shape” of the mating area.

The new ELC series 570 connector rom Foremost features a PA66 plastic housing, has 12 gold plated contacts for 0.25mm² wires and is rated at 2A, 150V. The connector has been designed to have a working life of over 5000 mating cycles to ensure long and reliable operation in applications where equipment is regularly connected and disconnected, a common requirement in applications across the medical sector.

The female panel mount connector provides protection against the ingress of liquids, water splash and accidental electrical contact and when mated the new easy locking connector offers protection to IP54.

Alan Vincent, Sales Director of Foremost, comments, “Clinical and patient monitoring equipment is often portable and used in many locations. A reliable and fool-proof connector system is a must in these environments. The mating system on the new Binder ELC connector satisfies these requirements as well as being proofed against water splashing when in use
