Kyocera AVX has launched its first waterproof ‘poke home’ IP67 waterproof wire-to-wire connector family.

The 9289-000 single-piece wire-to-wire connector series is aimed at space-saving high-reliability, IP67 in-field connections in industrial, transportation, commercial, and consumer electronics applications.

The single-piece, three-position waterproof wire-to-wire connectors are the sixth poke-home wire-to-wire connector series in the portfolio but the first waterproof connectors with the poke-home contact technology.

The 9289-000 Series waterproof wire-to-wire connectors enable simple, tool-free strip-and-poke-home wire insertion and twist-and-pull wire extraction for both solid and stranded wires.

The series uses transparent polycarbonate insulators that allow installers to visually confirm wire positioning and ensure proper insertion and single-piece phosphor bronze contacts with tin-over-nickel plating and high-force contact beams that provide superior mechanical stability and maximum-strength wire retention in addition to integral wire-stops that prevent over insertion. It also offers space and cost savings compared to two-piece wire-to-wire connectors that require contact crimping and subassembly.

The connector series is rated for up to 10A, up to 1,000VACRMS or the DC equivalent, and operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +80°C and facilitate IP67 connections for 16AWG wire with outer diameters spanning 2.0–2.2mm or 3.0–3.2mm.

It is also UL approved and RoHS compliant for applications including factory automation equipment, outdoor recreational vehicles, transportation lighting, horticulture lighting, other outdoor power and lighting applications, home appliances, and drones. Parts are packaged in bulk in quantities of 200 pieces per bag, and variants with other contact counts and wire sizes are available upon request.

“The 9289-000 Series single-piece, poke-home waterproof wire-to-wire connectors fill a gap in the industrial, transportation, commercial, and consumer electronics markets by facilitating quick, easy, accurate, economical, and space-saving in-field connections with IP67 protection, superior mechanical stability, and maximum wire retention strength for both solid and stranded wires,” said said Perrin Hardee, Product Marketing Manager at Kyocera AVX.
