Rail-industry connectors offer resistance to harsh environments

Designed specifically for the hostile environment of railway and transportation applications, the VBN multi-pin circular connectors feature plated aluminum alloy shells with a positive-lock/quick-disconnect reverse bayonet coupling mechanism for fast, reliable mating and unmating.

High shock and vibration resistance is achieved without the need for lock wires, and the connectors are resistant to fuel oils, solvents and elevated temperatures in accordance with SNCF standard NF F61-030.

Utilizing clip-in crimp contacts and flame-retardant thermoplastic inserts with retaining rings, the VBN series connectors are supplied as loose parts to allow users to configure the polarization to suit the requirements of their particular application. Inserts can even be changed at a later date if additional capacity is required as the system expands.

The VBN connectors are available in a variety of styles and shell sizes, and there are no minimum order quantities at all.
