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.
