Multi-wire connectors require a housing in addition to one male insert, one female insert, a base, and a plug, adapter or cable gland to complete a reliable connector. Housings consist of a hood that mates with a base or a coupler with a locking system to ensure coupling stability and protection.
Heavy-duty multi-wire connectors are used for easy signal, power, and data connections to provide a secure, simple, and time-saving installation. Their rugged housings offer excellent protection against dirt, moisture, and mechanical stress and are ideal for terminating multiconductor cables. Connectors are assembled from components and require, at minimum, a male and a female insert, and a housing comprised of a hood and base.
Available in 3A, 10A, 16A, 6B, 10B, 16B, 24B, and 32B sizes
Heavy-duty metal housings in polyester powder coated die-cast aluminum alloy or self-extinguishing thermoplastic housings
Single locking system (one lever locked on two pegs) or double locking system (two levers locked on four pegs)

Inserts provide the wiring connections and are mounted between the hood and the base of the multi-wire connector assembly or a one-piece housing.
Available in screw terminal or crimp style contact block connections
Self-extinguishing thermoplastic reinforced with glass fibers
Asymmetric guide rails prevent incorrect coupling
Captive installation screws allow for easy and secure installation
Laser-printed or molded terminal/contact positions on both sides of insert
Wide contact surface for ground terminals
IP20 without enclosures
Suitable for stranded and solid conductors
Housings are available in Hoods, Bases, Couplers, Bulkhead and Surface mount configurations which provides a protective covering for the insert and wiring.
All housings are available in a standard profile. Several are offered with a high construction (HC) profile that allows more room for wiring the higher density inserts.
Available with top entry or side entry cable passages
Straight or angled models
Thermoplastic or aluminum construction
Various dimensions and sizes
PG threads (PG to NPT adapters are also available) for conduit connection; IP68 or IP66 cable glands for cable entry
For use with crimp style inserts, crimp contacts are securely connected to bare wires and installed into the multi-wire insert. A perfect crimp connection is gas-tight, corrosion free, and is equal to a cold weld of the parts being connected.
Made of silver-plated or gold-plated copper alloy
Female or male contacts, sold in 100-packs
10 Amp, 26-14 AWG and 16 Amp, 26-12 AWG sizes
Use crimp contact tool for proper crimping
Plugs, Adapters, and Cable Glands
Plugs, adapters, and cable glands provide IP protection and support for cable connections to housings or bases.
IP66 protection with plastic or metal cable glands
IP68 protection with metal cable glands
Adapters convert a PG thread to an NPT thread
Blanking plugs with gaskets to seal unused ports
Housing Insert Plates
Housing insert plates provide a way to secure non-standard connectors, including 9-pin D-sub connectors, into a housing component.
Single and dual 9- and 15-pin D-sub connector cutouts
Blank cover plates or plates with selections
Bulkhead cutout reducing insert plates selections available
Thermoplastic construction with gasket included
Code Pins and Polarization Keys
Code pins are used in applications where there are identical connectors that could be coupled with the incorrect mate, potentially causing equipment damage or breakdown. Code pins replace the installation screws on the inserts.
Polarization keys provide a safe way for connectors to align properly, ensuring proper polarity.
Single code pin or double code pin with male and female versions
Sold in quantity packs
Zinc-plated steel construction
Fits 3A 12-pin inserts
Two keys are required per coupled connection
12 red keys per pack
