Astute Electronics is now stocking a waterproof version of Positronic’s Combo-D mixed power/signal connector family. The WCBD series connectors, which have only just been launched, maintain a rating of IP67 making them well suited to non-sheltered and outdoor applications.
Combo-D connectors allow the user to mix power and signal in a single connector body capable of up to 40 amps per size 8 contact. The new WCBD styles feature a flexible, thermal-resistant adhesive seal and mounting accessories and hardware that prevent water and dust ingress into the enclosure. The materials used – a composite mounting plate, optional stainless steel shell and heavy gold plating – have been chosen to offer long-term corrosion resistance.
Gary Evans, E-Mech Divisional Manager, Astute Electronics comments: “The industry appetite for waterproof and ingress protection features is increasing as electronics continues to pervade all markets. With its WCBD series connectors, Positronic is enabling designers of equipment for use outdoors to benefit from the flexibility, miniaturisation and cost saving afforded by its Combo-D product range.”
WCBD series connectors are available with vertical and right-angle solder PCB terminations in two tail diameters, and optionally with flying leads. Closed entry PosiBand female contacts for ruggedised applications can also be fitted.
