The single and double locking latches enable close arrangement, flexible mounting, and easy manual replacement of connectors. The locking latches are composed of fiberglass-reinforced polyamide.

Widest variety of heavy-duty connector outlet directions

Select from our wide housing range according to your requirements. We offer you sleeve housings with straight or lateral cable outlets for all common metric and Pg thread sizes.

Extra-large housings for heavy-duty connectors

The extra-large connector housings in sizes B32 and B48 accommodate two fixed-position contact inserts side by side. They are thus particularly suitable for high-position supply lines.

Heavy-duty connector versions with more wiring space

High sleeve and surface-mount housings with cable outlets of up to M50 provide more room for wiring large cable diameters and wiring bundles. Perfect for applications with modular contact inserts.

Free combination of sleeve housings

Combine the sleeve housings as required with a panel mounting base, coupling housing or surface-mount housing as well as with modular or fixed-position contact inserts. The sleeve housings and base housings are compatible with the industry standard.

EMC protection for HEAVYCON STANDARD industrial connectors

The housing surfaces and seals are electrically conductive. Combined with shielded cable glands, they offer you reliable EMC protection.

HEAVYCON D7 wall mounting

You can mount the D7 panel-mount base on the wall easily using two or four screws, depending on your requirements.

D7 housing in splash water

The robust D7 housings are reliably corrosion-resistant and offer optimum protection against dust and water. The plug connection defies adverse environmental influences and is dust and water-tight up to IP67 degree of protection. This enables reliable use even in outdoor applications.

HEAVYCON D7 with RJ45 contact insert

With the RJ45 contact inserts for D7 housings, you can create your own compact and robust interface and transfer data safely and reliably at high speeds of up to 10 Gbps. The RJ45 connector sets guarantee the fast and safe cabling of your application with the qualified preselection of the components. Moreover, the slotted seal in the housing screw connection also allows pre-assembled cables to be fed in easily.

HEAVYCON D7 on scales

With the use of plastic or die-cast aluminum, the compact HEAVYCON D7 connectors are particularly lightweight compared to comparable connectors with classic metal housings. However, we are only saving on weight here, because our “lightweights” defy extreme environmental influences and can be used outdoors without any problems.

HEAVYCON ADVANCE Robust without compromise

HEAVYCON ADVANCE heavy-duty connectors with screw locking mechanism are ideally suited for particularly aggressive surroundings, e.g., in offshore areas, or the chemical or railway industry. Sensitive interfaces are reliably protected, even against electromagnetic interference. For the panel feed-through, the panel-mount base that is normally used has been replaced by two simple panel-mount flanges, thereby reducing mounting and material costs. With this method, the sleeve housing forms a seal directly on the control cabinet panel.

  • Save space and money: Use panel-mount flanges instead of a base housing
  • For the harshest requirements: Housings satisfy IP66/IP67 degree of protection (plastic) and IP66/IP68/IP69K degree of protection (metal)
  • Compatible with standard panel cutouts
  • With their conductive surfaces and seals, the metal housings are EMC-ready

HEAVYCON ADVANCE industrial connectors without panel-mount base

HEAVYCON ADVANCE eliminates the need for the panel-mount base that is normally used on the device side. The housings are therefore particularly durable, robust, and space-saving.

HEAVYCON ADVANCE savings potential

Without the need for the normal panel mounting base, you save on mounting and material costs. The low designs of the metal and molded cable glands of the plastic housings offer further savings potential.

HEAVYCON ADVANCE screw locking mechanism

Mount the ADVANCE sleeve housing with two panel mounting flanges and robust stainless steel locking screws directly onto the wall. This achieves a high degree of tightness and makes it more difficult for unauthorized persons to gain access.

HEAVYCON ADVANCE housing versions

HEAVYCON ADVANCE is available in metal or plastic. The powder-coated outdoor housings are suitable for extreme demands.

Configure HEAVYCON ADVANCE industrial connectors

Combine the ADVANCE housing with modular or fixed-position contact inserts, according to your requirements.
