Techno Plug / Socket Connector

April 7, 2021

Plug and Socket pair installation in just 30 seconds.

Suitable for all operating conditions, easy to wire, and resistant to accidental disconnection. These are Techno's TH389 connectors, certified for installation in heavy-duty applications rated IP66, IP68 and IP69K. Available in 4- and 5-pole, flying and M20 panel versions, they are certified up to 17.5 A and 500 V in alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC). Their compactness makes them a valid alternative to products with the same power but larger dimensions.

The main feature of this new family of connectors is its extreme practicality made possible by the Easy-Click (push-pull) quick connection and disconnection system, which is the fastest way to connect and disconnect connectors compared to other screw or bayonet-type systems.

Simply insert the plug into the socket until the end stop is reached – the click of a special hook tooth, certified to withstand pull-out forces of up to 25 kg, not only ensures the union of the two components, but also the extreme tightness of the connection, eliminating the risk of accidental disconnection. A simple press of the finger is all that's needed to connect a USB cable or a jack connector.

Similarly, the Easy-Click system facilitates disconnection, while preventing this from happening accidentally. The breaking load of the TH389, i.e. its ability to withstand a tensile stress, is certified up to 25 kg: a parameter well beyond the EN 61535 standard for installation connectors, which sets the standard breaking load threshold at 8 kg. In fact, disconnection is only possible by manually pressing the release button (EN 61984).
