In2Connect Now Stocking Weipu SF12 Connectors

Connector and cable supplier In2Connect UK is now stocking the Weipu range of SF12 connectors to build an indoor/outdoor interconnects system.

The SF12 (panel mounting hole size 12mm) series of multi-pin, push-pull coupling connectors will provide IP67 integrity when mated. They are used for safe voice, signal and power connections between equipment where IP67 is critical, for example in broadcast and other applications like LED lights and LED display walls, outdoor security cameras, etc.
The SF12 connector has a self-catching system that is renowned for its quick mating and unmating features. The push-pull locking system reduces time taken to achieve a robust, waterproof lP67 seal by a factor of up to 10 times compared to a traditional screw-thread mechanism. It also provides security against vibration, shock or tensional stress on the cable and facilitates operation in a very limited space.
Once firmly latched, connection cannot be broken by pulling on the cable. When required, the connector is disengaged by a single axial pull on the outer release sleeve. It first disengages the latches and then withdraws the plug from the socket.
Using a combination of O ring sealing, high temperature 260 degrees inserts, grommets and compression nuts, the insulators and contact areas in these connectors are sealed against environmental elements. The 'O' ring is sited so the integral back shell can be removed close to the solder contacts to allow accurate soldering of the incoming cable. Connector end caps are available to suit and IP67 integrity is achieved when male and female connectors are mated or when the IP67 end cap is fitted to the IP67 socket body.
The screw machined brass, solder terminations on the SF12 range are plated gold over nickel in cable free plug, in-line cable receptacle, square flange and jam nut panel mounting receptacle options. Available with from two to nine contacts ranging from 13A to 3A and rated voltages of 250 or 125 dependant on the chosen planform, the connectors can handle incoming cable diameters from 4 to 8mm.
Plug and receptacle housings are keyed to ensure correct polarisation and tactile feedback when mating. All the Pintail SF12 connectors have the option of male or female contacts in any body shell; plus the ability to join cables with cable-end plug and in-line receptacle models. Constructed of chrome plated brass shells with 260 degrees C inserts, the connectors have stable dielectric and insulating properties, and also provide good mechanical properties at design temperatures of -40 to 100 degrees C. They are RoHS compliant, CE marked, small and lightweight.
SF12 connectors are designed for at least 500 mating cycles and can accommodate cable diameters from 3 to 8mm.
