Single-pole high-current connector 

15 Jul 2018

Stäubli Electrical Connectors has launched the new 16BL single-pole high-current connector, which was specially designed with optimized safety functions and increased flexibility specifically for (emergency) power supplies and industrial applications. The 16BL allows safe, intuitive use and reliable power transmission under extreme environmental conditions, even in a temperature range from 40°F to 248°F (-40°C to 120°C). The new 16BL connector system is designed for high power up to 630A. The components are robust and can be used easily and safely, even under the most adverse conditions of use (IP65, IP68, and IP69 degree of protection; salt-spray resistant). The new 45° bayonet locking system, as well as the crimp and reusable AxiClamp cable connections, ensure a reliable connection. The color and mechanical coding allows quick, intuitive identification and connection in the field with no risk of confusion. The micro-switch is integrated into the flush-mounted socket signals the connection is plugged in and can also be integrated into a safety circuit for machine enabling, fulfilling IEC 61984. Besides high numbers of mating cycles (up to 5,000), the tried and tested MULTILAM technology guarantees consistently high contact quality with constantly low contact resistance throughout the entire lifespan.
