M23 19-Pole Field Wireable Connectors

Mencom M23 Field wireable (attachable) connectors are flexible passive devices used for a wide variety of industrial signal and control applications. The “Crimp and Poke” method of wire termination provides a quick solution where pre-molded cordsets are not readily available, or where cabling needs to be repaired. The improved pin and insert designs make using these connectors even more effective and efficient. A simple change to the way the pin is captivated in the insert makes wiring, and re-wiring, if necessary, a quick and easy task. Gone is the old retention clip that could possibly be damaged when re-wiring or repairing. A simple extraction tool can now be used to quickly remove any contact. The pins and sockets for the M23 19-pole products accept a wire gauge range of 24-18 AWG. Mencom M23 19-pole field wireable connectors offer rugged and reliable connections with error-free field installation.  The universal design also provides a means for shielding the cable if needed. As a convenience, Mencom also offers a crimp tool (CCPZ-MIL) a locator tool (MCTP-V19) and the extraction tool (MCV19ES) to assist with assembly and disassembly, as well as MCV-001 to assist with the assembly of the female threaded connector.

Size 21.21 metal hoods with M25 angled cable entry

The wide range of 21.21 rectangular connectors offers a number of advantages for modern industrial applications. They provide a secure and reliable connection for power and signal transmission, with high resistance to environmental factors such as dust, moisture, and vibration. In addition, their compact design allows for easy installation and maintenance, making them a popular choice for a wide range of industrial machinery and equipment. The new size 21.21 metal hood with angled M25 cable entry can accommodate large-diameter cables or wire bundles while eliminating torsional stress on the locking lever of the mating enclosure.

V-TYPE Lever Series

Mencom introduces the innovative V-TYPE lever for rectangular connectors in response to the increasingly diverse and specialized performance requirements for securing the connections against severe vibration in harsh manufacturing environments. The V-TYPE lever distinguishes itself from other types of levers due to its unique closing mechanism consisting of two hinged elements that are pivoted on the housing. This composite movement allows the levers to move over the pins on the housing with an initial rotational movement and push down to engage the locking mechanism, which results in a tight seal with a high degree of protection (IP66/IP67/IP69 according to EN 60529). Constructed of stainless steel, the V-TYPE lever features a secure latch to prevent unintentional release, and the lack of plastic parts provides several benefits including increased durability against impact, corrosion from oil, chemicals, and high temperatures.

Toolless Rectangular Connectors for 10,000 Mating Cycles

There are industrial applications that require frequent mating cycles throughout life such as measuring/controlling drawer-mounted equipment, molding control equipment, and replaceable tools. Since the connectors of these applications need to be connected and disconnected several times a day, failing to install high-performance connectors with a sufficient mating cycle rating could result in unstable connections with lower reliability, which will cost more in the long run.Mencom offers the new Squich HNM (High Number of Mating) inserts designed to maximize ease of use while minimizing maintenance downtime. These rectangular inserts feature special contacts with galvanic high-performance gold plating and lubrication, which allow up to 10,000 mechanical mating cycles when installed in compatible HNM enclosures.

Rectangular Connector

Industrial electrical connectors have consistently faced the challenge of being ‘smaller, faster, safer, and easier’ in the modern manufacturing era. Those four keywords have been one of the manufacturing trends in the automation industry with the following implicit requirement, ‘The components and connectors are required to be small and compact while being waterproof and resistant to vibration to withstand in rugged environments.’ Mencom offers the new compact enclosure series engineered for ease of assembly and simplicity in mind. These fully metallic enclosures are available in size 32.13 exclusively and their hoods are designed in one piece for any wiring combination with a robust stainless-steel lever.

IP68 Enclosures

Mencom offers a range of IP68 series rectangular enclosures that provide the highest level of protection against dust and complete continuous submersion in water. These IP68 series enclosures have also successfully passed the tests required for the IPX6 degree of protection (tightness to powerful water jets) and for the IPX9 degree of protection (high pressure and temperature water jets), thanks to the dual O-ring seal design. Therefore, their official overall protection rating is IP66/IP68/IP69.The IP68 enclosures except size 44.27 are made of corrosion-proof foundry grade aluminum alloy and they are coated with oven-cured thermosetting paint with epoxy power, which makes the enclosures highly resistant to scratch, shock, seawater, and chemicals.
