binder, a leader in industrial circular connectors for automation applications, announces a new panel-mount connector with a hinged cover for maximum protection when not mated.
Designed by binder 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 contacts are rated up to 32A at 600V.
Like all binder Series 696 HEC connectors, the new hinged cover version is manufactured from a tough UL 94V-0 rated polyamide and incorporates a three-point bayonet locking system that makes for quick and secure fastening. Because it is both waterproof and dustproof, it is ideal for applications in difficult environments such as agricultural, construction, process engineering, water purification and recycling equipment, traffic and signalling systems.
