- Photovoltaic plants

Features

- Rectangular and circular connectors- Wide range of rectangular connectors are used for flexible and robust connections in mechanical and plant engineering. On the other hand, circular connectors are suitable for motion control and energy transfer.

- Available in the screw, crimp, cage clamp, strong contact springs and push-in termination.

- Robust- It is a robust and safe range of housings, inserts, and contacts. LAPP has special industrial connectors like EPIC® ULTRA for harsh environment applications in Food & Beverage industry.

- EMC protection - A range of small and high-performing connectors with EMC protection and high corrosion safety. Protection against EMC interference is achieved through a covering of a metallic screen that absorbs electromagnetic waves.

- Connection and contacts- Easy cable connection with straight cable entry in the contacts. H-D series connectors are designed to be used for industrial applications in which a high number of contacts are required.

- Certifications - UL listed, ECOLAB®, CE

EPIC® - Industrial Connectors are Classified as Below

 

EPIC® Rectangular Connectors

Flexible, robust connectors for mechanical engineering.

EPIC® Rectangular connectors are also available as components. The right connector for any application can be made individually from housings, inserts and contacts. For the housing, there are two performance classes to choose from.

- EPIC®Standard is robust and there is a flexible choice of cable entries.

- EPIC®ULTRA has a high corrosion protection, EMC protection as well as a stainless steel interlocking device.

EPIC® inserts are available in a fixed pin design and as a modular system. EPIC®pin inserts are easy to handle and come in a wide variety of designs. EPIC®modular inserts offer flexibility with modules for data, signals, power, fiber-optics and pneumatics. This means every insert is individually tailor-made for the relevant module configuration.

 

EPIC® Circular Connectors

Compact connectors for motion control and energy transfer. Circular connectors come in two designs, a signal design with gold-plated contacts for transmitting delicate signals and as high-reserve power connectors.

- EPIC®SIGNAL connectors are available as M17, M23 and R3.0 (M27). The metal housing with an integrated EMC screen contact prevents electromagnetic interferences, gold-plated signal contacts reliably transmit with the lowest of currents and voltages.

- EPIC®POWER connectors are available asM12, M17, LS1 (M23), LS1.5 (M40) and LS3 (M58). The integrated EMC cable glands offer strain relief and are perfectly sealed with high quality sealing materials for good chemical protection.

- EPIC®POWERLOCK connectors are perfect for transmitting very high currents with color code and geometrically code in order to prevent incorrect connections.

 

EPIC® Solar Connectors 

Long-life PV connector for photovoltaic systems where 1,500V system voltage used for modern photovoltaic plants with huge power. These connectors have crimp connection from 2.5 mm2 up to 10 mm2 for reliable and durable field mounting.

Under EPIC® we have now added EPIC® SMART - the cost effective and high performance industrial rectangular connectors. These industrial connectors are designed and manufactured in India for the Asian customers. The EPIC® SMART connectors are for power and control applications. They are suitable for rated current up to 16A & voltage 500 Volts. These connectors are currently available in 6, 10, 16, 24, 32 and 48 contacts with screw termination male & female inserts, panel mount base, and side entry cable hood, single and double lever locking system. With this new range of connectors, users can have the advantage of a superior price/performance ratio and the flexibility of a wide range of solutions to meet their requirements in terms of housing inserts and contacts combinations.

FAQs

  • Q. What are the types of industrial connectors?

    There are three types of industrial connectors:

    • Rectangular connectors: used for mechanical and plant engineering and is settings where robust and heavy-duty connectors are required.
    • Circular connectors: further divided into signal design gold-plated connectors and high-reserve power connectors.

    There are several other types of connectors namely solar 4Plus connectors, RJ45 data connectors, BUS connectors, and optical fiber connectors.

  • Q. What is a connector?      

    A cable connector is a hardware piece that is fitted on the end of a cable to be plugged into an interface, or port, or connected to another device.

  • Q. What is the function of a connector?       

    Connectors help in establishing a network system between two or more connection points. It simply builds a bridge between isolated or blocked circuits and joins them to form an expansive network.

  • Q. What are the parts of a connector?   

    The main parts of a connector are housing base inserts, male and female contacts, code pins, locking levers, ceiling ring.

  • Q. Is there a modular connector?

    Yes, EPIC® includes a MH range of connectors that come with different forms of connectors that help in power control signal and data transmission.
