New locking clips aim to meet growing demand
binder’s comprehensive product offering already provides a circular connector series for many industrial application sectors. "Now, with a new accessory, binder can improve two of its circular connector series with increased security and safety as required by a range of applications," says the company. "With new locking clips, binder is meeting the increasing demand in the snap-in segment."
The binder 620 and 720 Series are subminiature and miniature connectors designed for use in automation engineering and medical applications where there is a growing demand for fast-acting mating and other mating options.
Demand for extra safety increases
binder’s snap-in connectors have always provided a secure and reliable connection for conventional applications. However, the new locking clips are designed for use where pronounced physical stress is present. An example is stress due to cable tension. Equally important are applications where the connections cannot, under any circumstances, be interrupted either by unintentional or even unauthorised loosening.
Examples here include suspended lights like those in streetlights, cable extensions in cable ducts as well as safety testing where users need reliable protection against accidental or malicious separation of the connection.
Features of the locking clips
The locking clips have three snap-in lugs which provide the user with a clearly audible click when latched. For simple use, connecting and disconnecting is easily possible using one hand.
For even more security, the locking clips can be fastened using cable ties and, importantly, the new accessory can be reused several times. The clips are available in black or white versions for clearer identification of the installation, or to match a corporate identity or conform to the environment.
