Connectors Get Expanded Sizes

May 3, 2018
Bulgin's connectors are able to withstand vibrations, shocks, and corrosion.

The 4000 series of miniature circular power connectors have been expanded to meet the growing demand for power connector solutions that are both ultra-small and highly reliable. Adding to the existing 3, 8 and 12-pole solutions the range extension comprises 2, 4, 6 and 10-pole configurations, thereby more than doubling the options available.


Modern applications demand increased flexibility as well as high power density and reduced weight – all in a small footprint. The 4000 series delivers all of that and can carry a variety of voltages and currents throughout modern systems.


The cost-effective connectors are also highly rugged and suitable for applications where long-term durability is a necessity. Able to withstand vibrations, shocks and corrosion to EN/IEC 60068 requirements and salt spray for marine applications, the Buccaneer 4000 series connectors are also capable of being submerged in water to the IP68 rating and able to withstand powerful jet sprays / high pressure washing to IP69k standards when mated.


Additionally, the connectors have a UV-resistant, UL94V-0 flammability-rated plastic body equipped with a simple and efficient bayonet locking mechanism, allowing users to make a secure connection without the need for specialist tools.


The extended miniature circular power connector range joins Bulgin’s already extensive offering of push button, piezo, slide, toggle and rocker switches designed for a wide variety of industrial applications.
