Smaller miniature sealed connector system

9 March 2005 Interconnection

Joining Bulgin's renowned family of 'Buccaneer' sealed plastic connectors, the new 400 Series is the smallest in the range with an overall diameter of just over 19 mm, and, like others in the family, offers true waterproof sealing to IP68.

Although small in size the 400 series is packed with specification: multiple pole connections, from two up to 12 way, have been chosen to offer the maximum number of configurations; the 2 and 3 pole are rated at 8 A, 250 V, the 4, 6 and 8 pole 5 A, 125 V and the 10 and 12 pole at 1 A, 50 V. Using high quality gold-plated crimp and solder contact pins, contact resistance is less than 5 mΩ and therefore suitable for signal and power applications. Even within such a small connector, contact engagement is over 2,5 mm to maintain electrical integrity and enhance the long term reliability of the connector.

The secure cable sealing system uses the tried and tested method offered by compressive collet, cable gland and retaining nut. Separate colour-coded cable glands are used to provide sealing on cable diameters ranging from 3,5 to 7 mm, giving strong cable retention at over 80 Newtons.

Moulded in flame retardant V-0 rated Nylon, the three body styles - flex, flex in-line and panel mounting - are each available with plug or socket contacts. This allows cable to cable and cable to panel connection in either configuration. The connector faces are 'scoop proof' so mis-mating will not damage the contacts.

Designed to meet UL, CSA and VDE electrical approvals the 400 Series Buccaneer provides a lower cost alternative to comparable Mil spec connectors.
