Wieland’s RST Mini connector
Wieland Electric has added the RST Mini to its RST round-plug connector system. Said to be the smallest connector on the market, this 5-pole system consists of a connector for on-site installation, appliance connectors for integrating into housings, re-wireable components and pre-formed cables ready for connection.
The RST Mini system is rated up to IP69 and has also been designed for use with 3- and 4-pole electric supplies.
Connectors lock automatically on connection. Unlocking follows the ‘bayonet’ principle. In the ‘safelock’ position, the connection can only be opened using a screwdriver.
Installation errors are reduced by using mechanical and colour coding so that only matching connectors can be connected.
The standardised M20 thread enables these connectors to replace conventional screwed cable glands.
The system is said to reduce installation time by about 80% and cost by 25%.
