In2Connect UK Ltd has extended its range of IP67 bayonet locking connectors with a new power connector to complement the panel cut-outs of the existing RJ45 Ethernet, USB and Fibre Optic Duplex LC data and bus connectors. These power connectors offer the flexibility of front or back mounting within a single panel footprint.
POWER BAYONET CONNECTORS
These new power connectors are designed for industrial cable connections with IP67 protection. Bayonet locking allows a quick, simple and robust connection in harsh environments. 2 and 3 pole versions are available within the IP67 power bayonet connector series. The 2-pos. version is designed for DC use up to max. 48 V DC and the 3-pos. version utilises a premating contact for AC up to max. 250 V AC with protective earth contact (PE).
Crimp contacts are available for wire cross sections 12 to 10AWG or AWG10 to 8 for the 2 pole plus AWG14 to 12 for the 3 contact version. Crimp connections ensure easy, safe and quick mounting of the contacts, which are included in the connector kit.
These power connectors can be used to replace other types like the IEC C13, Neutrik PowerCon or CEE Norm and have the added benefit over some of bayonet locking to ensure safety and continuity of supply in an industrial environment.
The connectors are also available in readymade cable assemblies.

For industrial real-time-Ethernet, In2Connect has developed an RJ45 connector type with a bayonet latching mechanism according to the IEC 61076-3-106 standard. This robust design with IP67 rating ensures reliable protection and easy connection under harsh environmental conditions. They are not intended for use under continuous pressure. In consideration of the broad range of ‘rained on’ definitions, the industry appears to have agreed to a ‘test of immersion for 30 minutes, at a depth of 1 metre, or the equivalent air test at 1.45 psi. That is the Qualification Test. (Protected against the effects of temporary immersion between 15cm and 1metre. Duration of test 30minutes). A socket connector with IP67 rating, bayonet coupling and protective cap is available for installation into equipment. It can be mounted on the front or rear side of an enclosure panel of up to 3.2 mm thickness and is available in three designs.
Preassembled patch cables with IP67 rating in various lengths are available to interconnect panels and equipment.

The existing product line of IP67 rated USB connectors features bayonet locking in accordance with IEC61076-3-106 and an audible and noticeable feedback to ensure the user that an IP67 watertight connection is made. Compatibility between enclosures made with various materials is adhered to in accordance to IEC61076-3-106. The die cast housings are nickel plated and provide excellent shielding against EMI-RFI.
The IP67 USB Socket can be mounted on the front or rear side of enclosure panels with thickness up to 3.2 mm. This interface meets IP67 rating requirements when a mating connector is inserted or when covered with a secured protective cap. A USB 2.0 plug set is available for the cable side and there are also preassembled patch cords available in various IP protection designs and lengths. Also available are Mini-USB 2.0 Type B watertight bayonet locking connectors, integrated into a black plastic housing. No further mounting tool is required to make this simple, fast and robust connection.

Ideal for communications, security and surveillance equipment applications, these connectors provide increased protection from contamination and moisture in addition to mechanical stability, temperature resistance, electrical and vibration immunity.
For enhanced performance, a Multi-Mode 50/1µm (300 metre 10GbE – OM3) cable option is also available.
The IP67-rated LC product family features a 1/6th turn bayonet coupling for fast and secure mate/unmate, even with gloved hands. To optimize chemical resistance, UV resistance, and tolerance to physical abuse we offer these connectors in two different housing materials: black plastic and nickel-plated, zinc die-cast. All connectors are duplex LC type, in single-mode, multi-mode, and APC types.
The product line includes panel-mounted receptacles, mating plugs, and protective caps. Pre-assembled jumper cables including cables suitable for outdoor use and direct burial, in standard lengths from 1 metre to 300 metres are also available.
