Mencom introduces MIXO ONE series of aluminum enclosures
June 2, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Mencom has introduced the MIXO ONE series of aluminum housings systems, designed to accept a wide range of single-sized MIXO series modules.
These rectangular connector enclosures are available in three hood variants and one bulkhead mounting base.
The numerous combinations of the MIXO ONE housings and single-sized MIXO inserts will allow each module to be converted into a fully independent connector for electrical power, data transmission, optical signals or compressed air applications.
MIXO ONE series is designed to install the single-sized modules in one guided way only so that an incorrect match with the mating connector can be avoided.
The housings incorporate a pre-leading (first-make, last-break) PE connection terminal and contact for the safest connector operation.
The pins protruding from the bulkhead mounting housing play as a key guide in cooperation with the corresponding keyway sockets in the hoods to avoid incorrect 180-degree reversed mating with a matching connector.
Four optional coding pins are available which can generate up to 16 different coding combinations as a provision against mismatching when identical connectors are installed side by side
Hoods are split into two parts (front, rear) to mount a single-sized MIXO module and simplify the enclosure’s PE connection.
Four self-threading screws and self-retaining sealing gaskets are supplied for the hoods.
Bulkhead mounting base featuring a rigid stainless-steel locking lever is supplied with the module locking frame and self-retaining flange gasket.
Shock-proof and self-extinguishing thermoplastic (UL94V-2) protection covers are available for hoods and base suitable for outdoor environments.
