ShowMeCables’ Bulgin Connectivity Thrives in Adverse Environments

Offering Includes Power Entry Modules, Power and Data Connectors, Switches and More

ShowMeCables, an Infinite Electronics brand and a supplier of wired and wireless connectivity products, has just added a variety of connectivity devices made by Bulgin to withstand adverse environments. They consist of battery holders, fuse holders, push-button switches, circular power and data connectors, and power entry modules. Bulgin is a renowned designer and manufacturer of environmentally sealed connectors and electronic components.

Most of ShowMeCables’ new Bulgin products are made to withstand harsh environments, with ingress protection ratings such as IP69K, IP68 and IP66. This makes them ideal for applications such as industrial, commercial, marine/wastewater, transportation, medical, agricultural and food processing.

The removable/latching drawer-style battery holders include options for AA, AAA, C, D, or nine-volt (PP3) batteries, and they can be wired in series or in pairs. Mounting options cover PCB, panel or base. There are multi-up versions for holding multiple batteries at once.

The snap-fit-mount Bulgin fuse-holders handle AC fuse sizes 5 x 20 mm and 6.3 x 32 mm. The fuses are protected with panel-sealed IP68 or IP66 ratings. They feature a captive drawer, integral protection against electric shock, and bayonet screwdriver release.

The Bulgin panel-mount push-button switches control AC power flow in panel-mount applications. They are panel-sealed to IP66 specifications. The single-contact push design includes TVS protection. Their bright daylight LEDs come in several color options and LED ring illumination.

The flange-mount power entry modules (PEMs) are C14 style AC outlets with a choice of 6.3 mm quick-connect or 2.8 mm solder terminal connections. Each has an integral 5 x 20 mm fuse holder and a spare fuse-holder for immediate replacement when needed.

The Bulgin circular power connectors come in mating plug-and-socket pairs, with options for 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 12 or 25 contact configurations. They have either an IP68 or a food-processing-grade IP69K rating with waterproof wiring. They handle up to 12 amps and 277 volts.

The circular data connectors are inline or chassis-mount and come in Ethernet or USB versions. They have either an IP68 or IP69K rating with waterproof wiring. Other advantages include a damage-resistant alignment feature and EMI protection for noise immunity.

“With this broad new range of connectivity products, our customers are enjoying two big benefits,” said Product Line Manager Dan Rebeck. “They get Bulgin’s renowned designs, built to withstand harsh environments, and they get ShowMeCables’ unparalleled fast delivery and exceptional customer service.”
