Yamaichi Electronics has developed a new circular connector series: Y-Circ P. The series name stands for Circular Connector Push-Pull. The push-pull locking mechanism permits the simple insertion and unlocking of the connector by pulling on the housing. High-quality contacts permit at least 5,000 plug cycles. The design of the shield contacts was optimized. All half-shells are designed identically and cannot be confused anymore. That simplifies the assembly of the connector, reducing the time and expense for assembly. The supplier starts with the B series of the connector. It has a protection rating of IP50 and can be ordered in a number of combinations. Initially, three different diameters will be available, each of which can be equipped with a different number of contacts. The chrome-plated metal housing is high in quality and tough, so the connector is also suitable for use on visually demanding devices. The machined contacts mean that both secure data transmission and high currents are no problem.
