Push-pull coupling connectors reduce connection time 10 fold

August 17, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Bulgin has unveiled a new addition to the company's rugged Buccaneer range of connectors, giving engineers and product design professionals even greater flexibility in systems design.

The all new Buccaneer 6000 Series of waterproof power, signal and data connectors features an easy to use, patent pending push­pull locking system, that connects up to 10 times faster than a traditional screw thread mechanism.

The new addition to the Buccaneer range is designed to withstand the harshest environments and meets IP66, IP68 and IP69K standards.

The Buccaneer 6000 Series includes data (USB or Ethernet), signal and power versions up to 16 A, 277 V, and complements the popular screw thread Buccaneer range. Available in fully interchangeable metal and plastic constructions, the body mouldings and pin carriers have been specifically designed to create a robust interface while avoiding damage during coupling. This guarantees a correctly sealed connection – even where access is restricted.
