Omron Intros Field Assembly Connectors
Waterproof field-assemblable connectors.
Schaumburg, IL — Omron Electronic Components LLC has introduced its XS5C (socket) and XS5G (plug) field assembly water-proof IP67 (IEC60529) connectors that use Smartclick, a one-touch bayonet locking system that enables connection with just 1/8 of a turn. These versatile connectors enable users to fabricate custom length cable assemblies right on the shop floor.

The connectors can also be used to repair damaged connectors in the field, shortening downtime. They are available with screw, solder, or crimp style terminations. These connectors are offered in straight or right angle configuration in both 5 and 4 pin versions. They carry a 4 Amp current rating at 10 to 30VDC with contact resistance of 40mΩ max and operate in a --25 to +70°C temperature range. The XS5C and XS5G are backward-compatible to existing screw style M12 connectors.

Smartclick connectors improve the integrity of the circuit connections as compared to traditional screw style connectors. They feature an audible and tactile click indicating a secure lock. The Smartclick lock features excellent shock/vibration resistance (tensile: 100N/15s and torsion: 1N-m/15s) making them less likely to become disconnected thus reducing costly equipment downtime. Typical applications include industrial automation, machinery, automotive assembly equipment, semiconductor processing, solenoid, and sensor valves.
