SMK Develops Two Pin DC Power Connector
With Tool-free Connection

SMK Corporation has developed a DC Power connector featuring a safe, easy and secure connection enabling a power cable to be easily connected to equipment without any special tools.
When connecting a power cable to equipment or switchboard, a ring crimping terminal has been necessary to be screwed onto the terminal board.
SMK’s new connector does not require a crimping terminal and enables stripped cable to be connected just by simply inserting it into socket which reduces the time in man-hours.
As an option, a thermal fuse or thermistor can be mounted in the plug. It realizes high safety. In addition, this connector has waterproof & dust control specification of IP65 protection class.

【Product Features】
1. Able to connect power cables to the socket without any special tools
  • ・Socket and cable are locked just by inserting power cable into socket and closing the snap on cover. (Patent pending.)

    2. Easy detachment of parts
  • ・The cover can be easily unlocked with a screwdriver. (Patent pending.)

    3. Waterproof & dust control class IP65 when fitting is secured
  • ・Waterproofing performance of withstanding water jets for at least three minutes.

    Power conditioner, rechargeable battery, switchboard, etc.
