Power connector has optional hinged cover for maximum protection

Foremost Electronics, the Essex based specialist distributor of electromechanical components, has announced the availability of the latest addition to the Binder HEC (Harsh Environment Connector) series of connectors designed specifically for outdoor use.

The new Series 696 HEC power connector power connector is capable of handling up to 32A at a rated voltage of 600V and is available in both cable and panel mount formats with 4+PE silver plated male or female contacts.

Introduced by Foremost at the same time is a matching panel-mount connector with a hinged cover for maximum protection when not mated. Designed for fast and easy assembly, the Series 696 HEC female connector protects to IP67/IPX9K and can be supplied with 4+PE, 8 (4+3+PE) and 12 silver-plated contacts and features crimp termination.

The Binder Series 696 connectors are manufactured from a tough UL 94V-0 rated polyamide and incorporate a three-point bayonet locking system that makes for quick and secure fastening. They are waterproof and dustproof to IP68/IP69k and can withstand the levels of harsh treatment found in applications like agriculture and construction where the use of high-pressure washing is commonplace. Other applications include traffic and signalling systems, process engineering plants, water purification facilities and recycling equipment.

The Binder HEC connectors feature a robust and safe coding mechanism to prevent incorrect orientation and have an operating life in excess of over 1000 mating cycles. The use of a variety of crimp contacts ensures a secure, vibration-proof termination.

Alan Vincent, Sales Director of Foremost, comments, “Electronic equipment is increasing being used outdoors and in harsh environments. These new Binder harsh environment connectors offer designers a rugged and reliable interconnection solution.”

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
