Reliable protection for connectors14.10.2014
The conprotect from igus – easily retrofitted protection
igus developed the conprotect as protection for sensitive connectors in industrial applications. This protection against mechanical loads for standard USB connectors is assembled with ease in only a few steps and without tools. This prevents inadvertent unplugging.
For even better protection for USB connectors in industrial environments, igus developed the conprotect as a protective enclosure that is easily clipped around USB connectors in only a few steps. Two knurled screws give the connection added reliability. This approach prevents inadvertent unplugging. This new rugged and protective enclosure for connectors can also be used with a coupling for flying connections.
Easy and fast manual assembly
In order to make assembly as easy as possible, the lids of the conprotect are made from identical parts that fully enclose the connector by hand. The screws are then simply clipped-in. Users can conveniently order and retrofit the conprotect on existing connections. It is available at igus from stock and can be obtained starting at lot size 1 with no minimum order value.
