Switchcraft Conxall has just 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.

Harsh Environment  Mini Con X Insta-Click
The Con-X® Insta-Click™ series is sealed to IP68 for harsh environments when used with a molded cable assembly.

UV Resistant
A special high-PBT material provides excellent UV resistance for outdoor use and lighting applications.

Made in the USA
Made in USA to the high standards that have made Conxall the leading name in harsh environment connectors.

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
Insta-Click connectors are rated at 300 Volts AC/DC.

Current Rating
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 20mOhm initial contact resistance rating

Applications
Outdoor equipment and machinery
Data logging
Security Systems
Safety equipment
Ambulatory medical equipment  Mini Con X insta-click cable
Parking sensor systems
Food Trucks
Sports Scoreboards
Outdoor signs
Indoor Agricultural Lighting
Industrial sensors and controls
Fire protection systems
RVs and recreational equipment
Solar power systems

Cable Assemblies
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. With offices in Lakewood, CO, Salt Lake City, UT and Phoenix, Arizona, Moss Marketing is available to support your design efforts. Please let us know how we can be of service.

Switchcraft Conxall’s Data-Con-X series of Harsh Environment data connectors continues to expand with the addition of USBC connectors set to be released this quarter. This revolutionary product line allows the world of high speed data transfer to operate outside the box where the action is.

Data-Con-X connectors can be molded right onto cables for superior strength and sealing. Some standard overmolded versions of these products are available on distribution shelves.

Product demonstrations and samples are available, as well as design assistance including DFC, DFM, DFT and DFQ.

Whatever high speed harsh environment application you have, DataConX products would be worth considering.
