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.
New Tool-Free Cable Entry System
Posted on June 15th, 2016
KADP cable entry system offers a simpler and faster assembly for inserting and sealing cables for enclosures, machines and junction boxes. Through the pre-punched membrane, standard cables with diameters from 1.5mm to 20mm can be simply pushed into the control cabinets, panels or machines, and sealing with an IP66 rating. In comparison to traditional cable glands and cord grips, the cable entry system provides 10 times faster assembly time and a higher packing density, thanks to the tight fitting entry points. In addition, it takes 50% less space than the traditional solutions, which is ideal for cabinets with limited space.
The frame of the cable entry plate is made of a robust hard plastic molded with industry grade elastomer and it provides a simple & quick tool-free installation by snapping it into a rectangular opening. The KADP series fits into a standard cutout for the size of 24-pin industrial multipole connectors (11mm x 36mm) and can be mounted in a wall with a thickness from 1.5mm to 2mm. If the thickness is greater than 2mm the cable entry plate can be attached with M5 screws.
Below are applications where KADP series can be utilized.
– Mechanical and plant engineering
– Measuring and control technology
– Drive engineering
– Mobile studio- and lighting technology
– Wind power and solar energy technology
– Electrical installation
