Press Release from Cliff™ Electronics, 23rd October 2013.
Cliff™ Electronics “One Stop Shop” for Power Connectors
Power Connectors for OEM, Burn-in and Test.
On display at Productronica 2013.
For portable and rechargeable products Cliff™’s unique, patented and highly successful DC-10L dual socket accepts both 2.1mm and 2.5mm diameter plugs. This is rated at 12V/5A, available with solder tag, PCB or SMT mounting options and has an on-board switch. Being able to accept two of the most common power connector plug sizes simplifies system design and production and offers manufacturers a reduction in inventory and supplies.
Cliff™ will also be using Productronica to launch a new range of locking 2.1mm and 2.5mm DC plugs and sockets which have been introduced in response to increased market demand for secure power connections.
For rugged AC power connections the multi-pin CliffCon® range offers 20A per contact with new models offering from two to nine connection pins, waterproofed to IP68. Intended for any application where a high quality, reliable, locking connector system is required the CliffCon® range of connectors are tough and durable, multi-pole plugs and sockets. Designed for high power applications, contacts are touch-proof and meet the safety requirements of IEC 65/348. Features include a simple, fool-proof locking mechanism, high reliability wiping contacts, safety “leading” ground pin which makes first and breaks last to prevent damage from arcing if disconnected under load and a built in cable clamp to secure cables from 6 to 15mm diameter.
The Cliff™ Quicktest connection block has, for many years, been an overwhelming success in repair, test and manufacturing facilities worldwide, where quick, safe, temporary, un-terminated connections are required to mains supplies. A new 3 Phase Quicktest will be on show for the first time at Productronica, extending the applications for Quicktest into the electrical engineering, drives and controls markets.
