Courtesy: Binder-USABinder-USA's Harsh Environment Connector (HEC) is designed to endure extreme environmental conditions with its IP68/IP69K rating, making them well-suited for the industrial and agricultural environments.

The contact arrangement for the HEC connector is a hybrid 4x signal and 3+PE power configuration with removable crimp contacts. At 8 contacts, maximum rated voltage is 400 V for power and 60V for signal. The rated current for the HEC connector is 3 A for signal contacts and 25 A for power contacts. Standard wire gauge for signal contacts is 26 to 16 AWG, and for power contacts standard wire gauge is 16 to 14 AWG.

The IP68/IP69K rating means the HEC Connector is able to withstand high pressure and high temperature wash downs. Furthermore, the connectors have resistance to UV, acidic rain, saline mist, ozone and other pollutants in the air. The lock is designed as 3-point bayonet locking that makes for secure fast locking while a robust key prevents any wrong connection.

The HEC connectors are UL and VDE approved for easier implementation to new and existing applications. In addiition male and female field-attachable plugs and panel mount receptacles are available as well as protection caps for unmated connectors.
