Today, classic connection technology is undergoing fundamental changes. With the trend towards miniaturisation, connectors are also becoming smaller and smaller. Nevertheless, they should remain robust and withstand more and more mating cycles. This applies to the components in electronic systems for industrial electronics and consumer electronics as well as to devices for communication, medical or traffic technology.
Today, connectors must transmit energy, signals and as much data as possible. High-speed data rates in the range of Gbit/s require sophisticated RF concepts. For this, the user needs powerful and flexible, application-specific and, above all, compact connection solutions. For device manufacturers and users, properties such as reliability, availability and cost-effectiveness as well as smooth assembly are particularly important.
In electronic systems in all industries, connectors are often complex components with different electrical and mechanical environmental requirements. According to the application environments, the connection technology then also requires different designs and complexity.
Manufacturers are responding to new markets and applications such as Industry 4.0 with the accelerated expansion of multi-version product families. Connection technology specialist Yamaichi Electronics combines different technologies and is successively developing new versions based on the experience of the Y-Circ P push-pull connector series.
In the meantime, the company has launched an extensive range of push-pull connectors. Manufactured in Germany, the circular connectors with push-pull locking mechanism offer cost and many other advantages, as they save material and space and are easy to assemble.
