Binder-USA released a new version of the 692 and 693 series connectors good for outer cable diameters of 14 mm.
The new designs maintain the IP67 environmental protection rating when fully mated and terminated to cable having an outer diameter within the recommended range, which varies by part number, company says. The connectors are available with or without SEV, VDE, and UL approvals. Male and female cable plugs or panel-mount, flanged sockets are available with two contact configurations: 3+PE and 6+PE. The available termination styles include screw-type, solder-cup and crimp terminations (crimp contacts & crimp tooling ordered separately). The 692 and 693 series connectors are intermateable and interchangeable with other manufacturers’ industry standard connectors.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
