Heavy-duty connectors are used wherever there is a need for a secure, simple and time-saving assembly of machinery and facilities. The connector housings are made of die-cast aluminum and offer excellent protection against dirt, moisture and mechanical stress. Special modular connectors make it possible to integrate signals, power supply, pneumatics, and data connections into a single connector.
SMICO product line defines new standards with it's comprehensive depth and width of its features. What other suppliers offer only as a custom configuration, SMICO supplies in its standard product line. As a result, selecting the proper connector is now easier than ever. You save both time and money and your work flow is optimized. Thus you can strengthen your position on the market and leverage your competitive advantage.
A heavy-duty connector consists of a connector insert and its protective enclosure. The insert is therefore the heart of the heavy-duty connector. It is responsible for electrical functioning.
Connector inserts from SMICO are made from high-quality insulation materials, which allow secure transmission of high voltages in a tight space. Moreover, we use only a single type of plastic in our entire product line. This plastic is UL listed, and suitable for railway applications. This allows an unlimited world-wide use of the SMICO connector.
Universal and flexible - modular inserts are the solution for many applications.
HM is a modular system consisting of modules and frames. Together they form a complete insert that integrates without difficulty into an HDC housing. The system allows you to choose combinations of different modules yourself and insert them in a frame.
A heavy-duty connector consists of a connector insert and its protective enclosure. All of SMICO enclosures are made of high-quality die-cast aluminium. Thus they are impact- and corrosion-resistant, yet still compact and lightweight. Their patented stainless steel clips make them totally water- and dust-proof. They can be used under the harshest environmental conditions and are resistant to frost and vibrations.
SMICO has further developed its IP65 housing. The result is an industrial housing of a new design that also has the properties corrosion resistance and long service life. These new HDC industrial housings even surpass our previous stainless steel housings in all respects. All operation elements are made of stainless steel. A high-quality, multistage surface sealing provides safety for years. That’s why SMICO discontinued the stainless series and why you should use our new IP65 housing.
The IP68 housings have been developed for use under extreme environmental conditions. The high class of protection guarantees trouble-free operation in use on vehicles and under tough climatic conditions. If you want to protect your delicate interfaces from EMC emissions, these connectors are the right choice for you.
