Switchcraft Conxall has introduced the Insta-Click line of ConX connectors which latch automatically when coupled with the receptacles. To disconnect them twist the spring-loaded wingnut 90 degrees counterclockwise and pull. This eliminates over tightening the coupling ring which can damage the locking mechanism.
Harsh Environment The Con-X® Insta-Click™ series is sealed to IP68 for harsh environments when used with a molded cable assembly.
UV Resistant A special Hi PBT material provides excellent UV resistance for outdoor use and lighting applications. We can mold the connectors onto UV rated cable for a better tailored solution for your application.
Made in the USA Conxall connectors are made in the USA to the high standards that have made Conxall the leading name in harsh environment connectors. Lead time is short, you can speak with engineering during the day time there are few delivery surprises.
Contact Configurations This series of connectors is available in a wide variety of contact sizes and configurations up to 10 pins, including the mixed contact size layouts with power and signal pins in the same connector.
Voltage Rating InstaClick connectors are rated at 300V AC and DC.
13A max for # 16 contacts
7.5A max for #20 contacts
3.0A max for #22 contacts
Refer to website for detailed information
Contact Resistance Gold plating on all the contacts allows a 20 milliohm initial contact resistance rating.
Outdoor equipment and machinery
Ambulatory medical equipment
Indoor Agricultural Lighting
Industrial sensors and controls
Fire protection systems
RVs and recreational equipment
Solar power systems
These connectors can be overmolded right onto the cable for you, increasing the pull-out strength, improving the environmental seal and making the cables tamper-proof. This also improved the manufacturing process by eliminating quality issues associated with in-house cable assembly. Cables are 100% tested and documented.
Switchcraft Conxall, a division of Heico manufactures Harsh Environment connectors and cable assemblies in Chicago, IL. They are vertically integrated giving them full control of quality, timing, materials and variations in the products. Automation allows for their products to be manufactured with consistent quality and competitive pricing. Domestic production provides short lead times for tailored or custom products. Standard products are typically on the shelves of their distributors and are available coast to coast. The centrally located facilities provide low shipping costs and short shipping times as well.
Switchcraft Conxall makes harsh environment circular, data and sensor connectors, cables and custom assemblies. They also manufacture a wide variety of audio connectors, patch panels, breakout cables, video patch bays, panels and cables. The Switchcraft name is derived from their expertise in manufacturing switching jacks, formerly used in telephone switchboards. Established in 1946, Switchcraft became the standard in audio connectivity products and are widely established in the higher end consumer and professional level equipment. Even aircraft crews depend on Switchcraft quality for their communications systems.
Moss Marketing is proud to be associated with Switchcraft since 1948.
Product samples, demonstrations, design assistance and guidance are available from Moss Marketing throughout our territory, including NV, Southern Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Arizona, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas.

Schaffner EMC helps Medical Device manufacturers meet the FCC and CE noise requirements, as well as other world standards. Overcoming EMC/EMI issues and passing EMC testing is the gatekeeper between product design, development, and bringing a product to market. If EMC certification isn’t attained for a product, a company can face serious liability and fines.
Medical device standards like IEC-60601 are necessarily strict, considering the purpose and functions of this equipment. Schaffner’s medical-grade filters, chokes, transformers, and feedthrough components were designed to ensure reliable mitigation of EMI and compliance with medical standards.

Switchcraft High Amperage Jacks and Plugs
Up to 11 A!
Switchcraft has the highest current carrying DC Input Power Jacks on the market, with over twice the current capacity of the competition. The industry has been limited to 5A for these products because no higher options were available. Now Switchcraft has opened the doors to creative new applications. These small diameter switching jacks and plugs are a great alternative to larger connectors.

If your AC plug-in product uses between 5 and 11 Amps, you would be able to remove the power supply from the enclosure or case, downsizing the case. You could likely remove the fan since the power supply won’t be warming things up in there. The UL would come on the wall plug-in power supply already, so you wouldn’t have to deal with those folks much. The time to market would be faster too, plus you would likely have a lower cost overall.
So, what can you do with this?
Is that revolutionary or what?
