TE Connectivity Offers New Range of HDC Enclosures for High Protection against Contact Corrosion
DARMSTADT, Germany – March 8, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is introducing a new range of heavy duty connector (HDC) IP68 and electro-chemical compatibility (EMC) hoods and housing that provide protection against environmental and electro-chemical contact corrosion.
TE is targeting markets where resistance of electrical components to harsh environments is particularly important. Principal among these are rail, wind energy and industrial transportation. Typical applications include train sub-systems and inter-vehicle connections, vehicle washing facilities and electronic modules exposed to detergents, wind turbine brakes and pitch drives, and mining equipment.
The new hoods and housings have a robust design in a powder-coated die-cast aluminum alloy and are available in several different colors. They lock together with stainless steel M6 screws, and a nitrile rubber seal ensures protection against ingress of dust and liquids to a level of IP68.
The HDC enclosures protect against humidity, salt, detergents, fertilizers, UV radiation, temperature, shocks and vibrations. Accelerated weathering tests involving exposure to salt spray for 500 hours have confirmed the corrosion resistance of the components.
