Treotham Automation introduces a new solution from igus for reliable connector protection.

Developed by German company igus for sensitive standard USB connectors in industrial applications, the Conprotect solution ensures quick and easy assembly without tools, and prevents inadvertent unplugging, while protecting against mechanical loads.

To provide even better protection for USB connectors in industrial environments, Conprotect also has a protective enclosure that can be easily clipped around the connectors in a few steps. Inadvertent unplugging is prevented with two knurled screws giving the connection added reliability. The rugged and protective enclosure for connectors can also be used with a coupling for flying connections.

Assembly is simplified with the lids of Conprotect made from identical parts that fully enclose the connector, and the screws simply clipped-in thereafter. Conprotect can also be retrofitted on existing connections.
