Miniature sealed connector system

22 May 2002 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. Like others in the family, it offers true waterproof sealing to IP68.

Although small in size the 400 series has multiple pole connections, from two up to 12 way. Offering a 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 mOhm and therefore suitable for signal and power applications. Even in 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 proven 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. As well as sound sealing this design also produces very strong cable retention at over 80 N. It is moulded in flame retardant V-0 rated nylon.

Three body styles - flex, flex in-line and panel mounting - are each available with plug or socket contacts allowing cable to cable and cable to panel connection in either configuration, so, for example, an inlet and outlet connection with the same number of ways could be used on a single panel.

Designed to meet UL, CSA and VDE electrical approvals the 400 Series Buccaneer provides a lower cost alternative to comparable Mil spec connectors according to the manufacturer. In addition, the tough corrosion resistant bodies can be an added advantage where continuously subjected to damp or wet conditions.
