16BL - optimized safety functions and increased flexibilityStäubli Electrical Connectors is launching the new 16BL single-pole high-current connector, which was specially designed with optimized safety functions and increased flexibility specifically for (emergency) power supplies and industrial applications. The 16BL has numerous impressive innovations and allows safe, intuitive use and reliable power transmission under extreme environmental conditions, even in a temperature range from −40 to +120° C.
The new 16BL connector system from Stäubli Electrical Connectors is designed for high power up to 630 A. The components are robust and can be used easily and safely, even under the most adverse conditions of use (IP65, IP68, and IP69 degree of protection; salt-spray resistant). The new 45° bayonet locking system as well as the crimp and reusable AxiClamp cable connections ensure a reliable connection. The color and mechanical coding allows quick, intuitive identification and connection in the field with no risk of confusion. The micro-switch integrated into the flush-mounted socket signals the user that the connection is plugged in and can also be integrated into a safety circuit for machine enabling, fulfilling IEC 61984. Besides high numbers of mating cycles (up to 5,000, depending on conditions of use), the tried and tested MULTILAM technology guarantees consistently high contact quality with constantly low contact resistance throughout the entire lifespan.
