CA series of round industrial connectors from company Hirschmann (a member of Belden group), meets all requirements asked from industrial connectors. Dust and moisture are no problem (IP67), secure connection and easy manipulation (even in gloves) are self-evident.
CA series is no greenhorn, but a renowned professional used in many applications. Plastic body is from a durable polyamide reinforced by glass fibres. This material is in many cases more advantageous than a metal and also eliminates problems with a possible corrosion in a harsh environment (chemical industry, moisty environment, agriculture, renewable-energy sources, ...). A designer is almost free to choose a suitable cable, because the connectors are supplied with two sealings enabling to use cables with 6-12 mm diameter (6-9, 9-12mm).
connectors are produced in versions CA3 (3 poples + 1PE) and CA6 (6 poles + 1PE).
Similarly, like every decent connector, even the CA3/CA6 is designed in the way, that PE pins are the first to connect, what ensures a reliable protection already at connecting and the equalization of gnd potentials at the same time (increased ESD protection). Reliable electrical contact is ensured by silver-plated contacts.
The main difference between CA3 and CA6 is the maximum current and voltage. At the same time, the 3 pole version has screw terminals, while the 6-pole version has solder ones.
It can be said, that it is worth to put your hands on the CA series. Precise construction and a simple usage will probably convince you. The CA series is also suitable for 230/400V mains applications and can be used to power supply any devices with current up to 16 A(AC).
The latest novelty are the colour versions (red white blue), which we´re able to supply to you upon request. Detailed information will provide you datasheets at particular types.
