Mencom now carrying ILME SQUICH spring terminal rectangular connectors
September 27, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
September 27, 2018 – Mencom is now offering ILME “SQUICH” spring terminal rectangular connectors, used in a variety of industrial machinery in rugged industrial environments.
With the SQUICH (already open) spring insert technology, no tool is required to terminate rigid and/or flexible cables (up to 2.5mm2) to the contacts in the connector. The SQUICH inserts are up to 50 per cent faster to wire than the conventional screw terminal connectors. These inserts provide a safe and reliable connection and will endure severe vibrations on harsh manufacturing floors. In addition, when used with the IP65 housings, they offer gastight connections.
The CK series SQUICH connectors are wired on the rear top of the insert. This keeps the wires from being bent and eliminates the tedious disassembly process of the inserts from the enclosures when re-wiring is required.
A unique coding system is available to prevent incorrect coupling that may cause consequent damages and breakdown. These coding pins can be set with multiple unique configurations, so several enclosures can be mounted together without fear of mating the wrong hoods with the wrong bases. According to EN 61984, the three- and four-pole (size 21.21) SQUICH inserts are rated 10A, 400V.
Since cables are wired from the rear top, the measuring points for multimeter probes are located next to the connections.
