TE Connectivity’s Heavy Duty Connectors Offer Servo and Spindle Motors Reliability and Lower Installation Times
DARMSTADT, Germany – August 14, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, offers a vast range of connectivity solutions for diverse motor types. With trends in connectivity toward more miniaturization, reduced installation times, improved reliability, and lower costs in installation and operation, TE’s heavy duty connectors are suitable for numerous applications in servo and spindle motors.
Designed to perform reliably under the most demanding conditions, TE’s heavy duty connectors offer IP69K rated protection and can endure 1,000 hours of salt spray resistance. These heavy duty connectors are built on a modular basis so they can offer power, signal and data transmission in a single compact unit. A one-piece connector frame allows for easy assembly of the modular inserts, and a docking frame that allows for blind mating provides more savings in installation time and costs.
TE’s heavy duty connector has a history dating back over 60 years, during which time it has gone through various generations and options, offering special features for a wide range of applications. “The heavy duty connector is an iconic product that stands the test of time,” says Sascha Lambauer, product manager for TE’s heavy duty connectors. “Like many other TE solutions, the HDC also withstands harsh environments, reliably performing under demanding operating conditions, and is engineered to give designers flexibility and reliability in their servo and spindle motor designs.”
Servo motors are increasingly being chosen for their high efficiency, especially in material handling systems and inside machinery. Meanwhile, advances in machine tooling requiring high precision and reliability are leading to spindle motors being put at the heart of modern production systems, delivering high quality end products.
