Large modular enclosures will provide you the space you have always wanted
Posted on November 18th, 2016
Mencom is proud to announce new rectangular hoods that will meet the demanding requirements of the wiring market. The new hoods named BIG Series, feature larger dimensions than the standard hoods, provide additional space, and accommodate larger sizes of cables and additional entry holes. The size of the new enclosures is 23mm wider and up to 34mm higher than the current enclosures. Despite the larger sizes, the BIG hoods are still fully compatible with the existing rectangular connectors and accessories.
The hood compartment is designed with an upper and lower half connected by 4 screws with o-rings, providing easy access during assembly. This feature provides up to three times more space compared to the standard hoods. Big enclosures enable the connection of push button selectors, switches and signaling lamps after the necessary holes have been drilled. For example, it is possible to enable power supplies or signaling circuits even after the connector has been coupled.
The hood entry is available in one or more top & side entries and a closed enclosure that can be drilled. The hoods with size 44.27 fit only with the single lever. The larger size hoods fit bases with two levers. The BIG series is IP66 rated after the hood has been coupled with appropriate rectangular base and cable glands.

By using a Panel Interface Connector to communicate with a PLC inside the cabinet, you can eliminate downtime and prevent the risk of Arc Flash & other safety concerns while saving significant time and money. Mencom PICs are rated IP65/66 (NEMA 4, 4X, 12) so they can reduce potential risks of the enclosure being exposed to any unwanted substances in harsh environments.

New MIN Series Locks to Secure the Connection
Posted on August 10th, 2016
Mencom Introduces New lock designs to secure MIN Series Connections for Harsh Manufacturing Environments at IMTS – Booth #E-4152 in the East Building
Connection failures can be caused by various reasons, such as excess temperature, excess current or voltage, mechanical shock, stress and impact. Sometimes, however, the failure is caused by the careless access of unauthorized or unlicensed personnel to the connectors, which could lead to injuries or downtime. This could cause significant loss in time and money.
Mencom MIN series locks are designed to secure the connection between two straight MIN plugs or between a straight MIN plug and a mating receptacle to prevent the unexpected interruptions. The padlock hole ensures the extra layered protection by allowing only authorized users to have an access to the connectors. Once the padlock is removed, the locks can be opened by inserting a small flat-blade screwdriver into the slot.
The MIN locks for Plug-to-Receptacle connection is available in both MIN size I (7/8”) and PMIN (1 3/8”) series. The Plug-to-Plug connection is currently available only in PMIN (1 3/8”) series. Mencom also offers the protective lockout for MIN size I (7/8”) plugs.

New Front Mount M12 Receptacles with Front Lock Nut
Posted on July 14th, 2016
Mencom Corporation Introduces New Front Mount M12 Circular Receptacles with Front Lock Nut for Harsh Manufacturing Environments at IMTS – Booth #E-4152 in the East Building
Mencom is pleased to announce new front locking nut technology for our M12 connectors. These front mount receptacles with front lock nut are designed for thread mount applications that need specific keyway orientations due to the space constraint or any other unexpected engineering situations. Mencom’s new front lock nut receptacles allow the keyway to be freely rotated to any orientation required by simply adjusting the connector and the front lock nut. When using traditional front thread mount receptacles, you have no control which direction the keyway ends up after the thread is fully engaged. This new technology can eliminate that issue.
Mencom’s front lock nut receptacles are UL listed and rated IP67 to provide reliable connectivity in harsh environments. These front locking receptacles are available in multiple pole configurations including 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12 pole. The mounting thread options are available in both PG9 and M16.
