Water-resistant connectors for space-constrained security and medical uses introduced by Hirose
SIMI VALLEY, Calif., 3 Sept. 2014. Hirose Electric Co. Ltd. in Simi Valley, Calif., is introducing the DF62W series water-resistant in-line connectors for space-constrained applications like security systems, medical devices, robotic machinery, and food process machinery.
The connectors offer a simplified, slim design and smooth contour for connecting inside small spaces. Providing IP67-rated protection, the DF62W series dimension is 27.1 by 10.2 by 12 millimeters when mated.
The ability to resist the effects of water is from a wire seal and housing seal that are pre-assembled in the housing. The crimped contacts and wire are easily inserted through the seals to complete the cable assembly.
The wire-to-wire connector series has a multi-row pin layout arranged in a grid pattern that can reduce the size of the diagonal diameter, making the DF62W series connector suited for space-constrained applications. Using a reliable two-point contact design, the DF62W series delivers ruggedized connectivity that is resistant to shock and vibration.
The DF62W design has no exposed metal components, reducing the possibility of shock, and has a center latch that provides a tactile click during mating and visual confirmation of a completed lock. The latch also is protected by tapered side guards that prevent entanglement in the harness and accidental unmating.
The DF62W series has a current rating of to 3 amps, a voltage rating of 250 volts AC-DC and is Halogen-free as defined by IEC61249-2-21. Contact resistance for this series is a maximum of 30 m ohms, and the mating durability is assured for 30 insertion/withdrawal cycles.
