PEI-Genesis has expanded its range of products from Amphenol-Tuchel Electronics with the addition of the new eco-mate series of circular industrial connectors. Having evolved from Amphenol-Tuchel's C16-1 series, the new eco-mate connectors are completely intermateable and interchangeable with the old C16-1 products.
Particularly suitable for use on control equipment in the robotics and automation sectors, the eco-mate connectors are made from tough polyamide material and offer environmental protection of IP65 or IP67, depending on model.
They also feature a vibration-proof coarse-threaded cable gland and are ergonomically shaped to facilitate quick mating/unmating even under extreme environmental conditions.
Available from stock from the PEI-Genesis stocking centers in both South Bend Indiana, and Southampton, UK., the Eco-Mate series consists of male and female panel-mount receptacles, together with male and female cable connectors in both straight and right-angled versions.
All variants are equipped with a pre-mating earth contact and can be specified with either three or six additional contacts in a choice of screw, solder or crimp termination styles.
The cable connectors incorporate a clamping ring that can accommodate cable diameters ranging from 6.0 to 12.5mm, and the straight versions are also available with an optional internal strain relief mechanism. All receptacles feature an integral fastener for the optional protective cap.
