CANNON’S APD connector series is designed specifically for transportation applications such as braking systems, power distribution, battery links, sensor applications, lighting and gear and power steering controls. The connectors are available from Connector-Tech .
The connectors are sealed to IP69K making them totally protected against the ingress of dust and capable of steam jet wash down.
The IP69K test is designed for rating protection against a high-pressure jet-stream (1160psi to 1450psi), high liquid temperature (80°C) and close nozzle distances (100mm to 150mm) providing excellent engine steam cleaning protection. The operating temperature range is -40°C to 140°C.
They are designed to withstand high shock and vibration and are resistant to brake and transmission fluids along with oils, greases, salt, dirt and mud. The APD’s will maintain their integrity in the roughest environments.
The APD series is available in single, dual, 3 and 4 contact with a maximum current rating of 30A and 6 and 7 way with 16A contacts.
A three-point bayonet coupling system with an audible and tactile feedback ensures they are mated properly even in areas of low visibility or awkward position.
Colour coded versions, with unique polarisation for each colour, are available to avoid cross-mating in areas where multiple connectors must be used.
