UTS In-Line is a connector that is designed to expand or repair links, and which assures a level of dynamic airtight sealing to IP68 or IP69K. It is an ideal solution for demanding applications such as robotics, off-road, road signage and railway signaling. The screw contact termination variant makes it the ideal companion for installation engineers.
The compact, all-plastic connector has no square edge, allowing it to be easily inserted, for example, in a narrow sheath or in areas that are difficult to access. It can transmit low or high power (up to 26 amps), or a signal of just a few milliamps.
Like the rest of the UTS range, UTS In-Line seals to IP68 and IP69K. This gives it immersion stability to a depth of 10m and, in cleaning operations, to pressures of 140 bar. This sealing is also dynamic: in concrete terms, this means it is protected even when the cable is drawn in all directions. The material, a high performance plastic, resists shock and vibration and offers excellent temperature performance (from -40 to +105 degrees Celsius). The connectors are also resistant to salt spray (up to 500 hours) and to UV, which enhances their reliability in outdoor applications.
UTS In-Line is also fitted with an ergonomic « TRIM TRIO® » closing mechanism – an interlocking third-of-a-turn bayonet with a sensitive, audible click that guarantees a good connection. It is good for 250 operations and supports the following networks: Ethernet 10 BaseT, 100 BaseTX, 1000 BaseT, Cat5e (TIA/EIA 568B) and D class (ISO/IEC 11801).
The UTS range is part of the TRIM TRIO® family. It is a unique range on the market, comprehensive and designed on a modular basis. The sockets are common to all TRIM TRIO® connectors, as are the contacts. This results in complete freedom to design a connector with several different types of contact – signal, power and high-speed (Coaxial, fibre optic). Through its modular approach, extensive range and resistance to extreme and severe environments, the TRIM TRIO® family positions itself as a benchmark for industrial circular connection.
