According to the product announcement, the coupling nuts and housings of the cordsets for 1” and 1 1/8” threads have recently been redesigned to deliver the better connectivity and stability. In addition to the power and signal connectors, Mencom offers M12 and 7/8” threads circular connectors for the industrial Network solutions such as DeviceNet, Ethernet, Foundation Fieldbus, Profibus, and Profinet.
Although the MIL-Spec 5015 circular connectors were originally designed for aeronautical and tactical service applications, they are becoming more commonplace in industrial applications, but do not need the military specifications. In order to meet the strong demand from various industries, Mencom has designed and offers a MIL-Spec 5015 Equivalent connector series with size 10SL (0.625”-24NEF), 14S (0.875”-20UNEF), 16S (1”-20UNEF) and 18(1.125”-18UNEF).
Mencom circular connectors are UL listed and IP67 rated to provide the utmost protection and quality for harsh environments. Multiple pole configurations and cable jacket materials including PVC, PUR and TPR are available for over-molded connectors along with a full line of accessories such as field wireable plugs, T-connectors, closure caps and plugs to name a few. Mencom has a variety of mounting styles for the mating circular receptacles. The range of the customization is from small changes to custom terminations and assemblies.
