Applications intended for medical and industrial environments, which experience frequent spillages and wash-downs, can take advantage of the Series 770 NCC connectors thanks to their IP67 rating in unmated condition. The panel-mounted receptacle has an internal sliding cap that moves forward and seals the contact area when the plug is disconnected from the receptacle. According to developer Binder-USA, the connector’s bayonet locking allows for quick, easy, and reliable mating and demating of the connector halves. Visual indicators on the plug and receptacle help align both connector halves during the mating process. The male cable connector can handle 2.5- to 8-mm diameter cables. Eight gold-plated contacts are rated at 175 V and 2 A per contact.
