Rectangular Connector Family

June 1, 2006
The RockStar family of rectangular connectors is designed to facilitate “plug-and-play” connecting and disconnecting of electrical circuits in individual control systems.

RockStar connectors include a high-quality die-cast aluminum housing with a stainless steel locking system as standard, a high-quality multi-layered surface sealing, as well as laser-etched identification marking. These features are designed to make RockStar suitable for corrosive environments and industrial applications. The connectors are available in versions with IP65 and IP69k protection class ratings. RockStar housings are also the only ones that fulfill the NEMA 250-1991, Type 4X standard, says the vendor. Connectors are available in four different types of housings—hood style, coupling, bulkhead and base. Five connection systems are offered, including screw clamp, tension clamp, crimp, axial screw and the vendor’s push-in direct connection. RockStar connectors are available with from 3 to 216 poles, and ratings up to 1000V and 100A, both with and without a ground connection.
