Push-pull Technology Makes Fast, Reliable Sealed Connections
The Molex Brad® Ultra-Lock® system is designed to bring the ease of a push-pull connector to IP67/IP68/IP69K-rated sealed connections in industrial environments. The M12-compatible technology provides a seal that is positioned to surpass the performance and reliability of traditional threaded connectors. The positive-locking Ultra-Lock design with built-in reliability eliminates the need to turn a coupler and connector-related intermittent signals due to harsh conditions or installer error resulting in a loose connection. Providing safe, reliable connection of sensors, actuators and other control devices, the operational benefits include up to an 80 percent reduction in electrical commissioning of industrial machinery and automation systems, according to the company. It also offers the ability to change machine configurations quickly, without the need to hire a licensed electrician. Brad Ultra-Lock connectors are designed to remain securely mated under the stresses of machine vibration, cable pulls and in-plant traffic of workers and mobile vehicles. The patented technology incorporates a mechanical locking feature and radial o-ring compression seal to lock out moisture, water, dust, solvents and other chemical contaminants. Installed with a single push, the stainless steel IP69K rated Ultra-Lock repeatable seal can withstand high-pressure washdowns up to 1,500 psi. Visit Molex at Hannover Fair 2017 – Hall 9, Stand F76.
