Heavy-duty Connectors for Outdoor Applications from Phoenix Contact
- Published: Tuesday, 06 December 2016 07:48
Heavycon Advance heavy-duty connectors from Phoenix Contact are suitable for particularly stringent requirements in aggressive environments such as the railway or chemical industry as well as offshore systems.
The new outdoor enclosures are made from corrosion-resistant, saltwater-resistant die-cast aluminium. A black powder coating provides additional protection against corrosion.
The usual panel mounting base is not used with these heavy-duty connectors. This creates very compact interfaces with a low height. They provide an optimised space for cabling and save both assembly and material costs. The outdoor enclosures are available in sizes B6, B10, B16, and B24 with a high-profile and low-profile design. The UV-resistant Viton seal makes direct contact with the mounting surface.
The outdoor connectors feature IP68/IP69K degree of protection. Thanks to the screw locking, the interface is securely closed and cannot be opened by unauthorised persons, as is the case with a locking latch.
