Visit Booth G59 at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2013 to see the latest additions to the rugged Buccaneer® range of dust and waterproof power, signal and data connectors from Bulgin – an Elektron Technology connectivity brand. Held at FIVE in Farnborough on the 13th and 14th of February, the exhibition will showcase the new Buccaneer 6000 Series of unique and easy-to-use push-pull connectors featuring a patent pending, push-pull latching mechanism and 30° twist lock. This innovative addition to the Buccaneer range can be connected much more rapidly than a traditional screw thread connector, and is designed to withstand the harshest environments, meeting IP66, IP68 and IP69K standards.

Available in fully interchangeable metal and plastic constructions, the Buccaneer 6000 Series includes data (USB or Ethernet), signal and power versions up to 16A, 277V, and complements the popular screw thread Buccaneer range. The connector’s body mouldings and pin carriers have been specifically designed to create a robust interface while avoiding damage during coupling. This pioneering ‘fit and forget’ connector is ideally suited to applications where access is restricted, and will soon be joined by the IP66, IP68 and IP69K rated Buccaneer 7000 Series for mains power applications. Remarkably compact for its 25A and 277V rating, the Buccaneer 7000 will be available in 2, 3, 8, 16 and 32 pole options, with a unique ¼ turn locking system and a choice of zinc alloy or plastic bodies, offering engineers and designers the greatest possible flexibility in system design.
