JAE has recently developed the HB01 Series, a waterproof cable-to-cable connector ideally suited for the industrial machinery market.
As robots and other industrial machinery are becoming increasingly compact, multi-axis, and multi-functional, the installation space for devices such as servo motors is decreasing. This has created a demand for compact, low-profile connectors that have waterproof performance as well as compatibility with applications where board mounting is not possible.
The HB01 Series perfectly meets this demand. The HB01 Series connector features a mechanical lock which withstands vibration and pulling, and also saves space by utilizing a hybrid structure that allows for wiring of both power and signal lines in one connector.
This connector achieves high-waterproof performance (IP67) by sealing the mating area with a seal ring and the cable pull-out area with a grommet inside the connector.
The HB01 Series has a structure that guides the terminals with a rear cover on the back of the connector, and allows for improved harness workability.
To meet the broad variety of customer needs, the HB01 Series is compatible with a wide range of cable sizes, and two barrel sizes can be selected for both power and signal terminals.
