There are industrial applications that require frequent lifecycle matching cycles, such as measuring / monitoring drawer-mounted equipment, molding control equipment, and interchangeable instruments. Because the connectors of these applications need to be connected and disconnected several times a day, failure to install high-performance connectors with a sufficient pairing cycle rating can lead to unstable connections with lower reliability, which will cost more in the long run.
Mencom offers the new Squich HNM (High Number of Mating) inserts designed to maximize ease of use while minimizing downtime during maintenance. These rectangular inserts have special galvanically highly effective gold-plated and lubrication-coated contacts that allow up to 10,000 mechanical mating cycles when installed in compatible HNM enclosures. In addition, Squich spring clip technology with drive buttons provides not only fast and reliable wiring, but also high vibration resistance from industrial applications.
Standard HNM (RSH) inserts are available in 6, 10, 16 and 24 poles, and high density (RDSH) versions are available in 9, 18, 27 and 42 poles. High-density (RDSH) versions have multimeter measurement points on each contact and an additional coding system.
