D-Sub full metal hoods for slide locks and automatic slide locks

Slide locks and automatic slide locks are used especially for D-Sub interconnections with frequent reconnect cycles or for difficult mounting locations where a screw-on locking would be problematic being either difficult to reach or very time-consuming to operate.

These items are typically applied in test benches and experimental set-ups, in modular control systems or for mobile testing and diagnostic devices. As most of these kind of applications do require a high level of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), a reliable EMI / RFI protection by continuous shielding of the interconnection system is indispensable.

Being a specialist for EMI / RFI shielding interconnection systems Inotec electronics has developed the series M1, M2, M3 and M5 which are especially designed for being operated with slide locks and automatic slide locks.

M1/M2 series

M1/M2 series with slide lock for 9- up to 50-way D-Sub or 15- up to 78-way HD connectors

  • Quick an safe locking and unlocking
  • Reliable protection against unintentional release under tension or vibration and high mechanical load
  • 2 or 3 cable entries for a maximum of flexibility
  • Type M2 has been extended by 15 mm to permit e.g. the installation of filters, PCB assemblies or offering additional space for mixed cabling
  • Version with pre-cut female thread suitable as counterconnector

M3 series

M3 series with automatic slide lock for 9- up to 50-way D-Sub or 15- up to 78-way HD connectors

  • Fast and save locking even in unfavourable installation situations
  • Protection against accidental release of the connection
  • When the connector is plugged in, the slide snaps automatically into the locking position
  • Only for unlocking the mechanism has to be activated manually
  • Safe and tool-free assembly of the locking spring
  • Special blanket geometry for an optimal guidance of the lock slide
  • Up to 3 cable entries for a maximum of flexibility

M5 series

M5 series with compact 9-way quick release lock

  • Fast and save locking even at high packing densities and frequent reconnect cycles
  • Locking is carried out simply by pushing on the connector without having to activate any additional mechanism
  • Optimal grounding through stainless-steel snap-on hook, completely pre-assembled
  • Gummed spring clips are allowing an optimal handling.
 

Inotec offers the widest range of high-quality EMC-performing D-Sub hoods with screw locking:

  • EMC-oriented hood design
  • HF-protected full metal hoods made of die-cast zinc with labyrinth cover
  • Unused cable entries are sealed against HF interferences with blind plugs
  • Integrated grounding point
  • Ergonomic hood design (avoids pulling on the cable)
  • Inotec crimp flange technology with dovetail design ensures minimum transition resistances to shielded cables
  • High-end corrosion resistant locking screws ensure a safe connection with extreme mechanical resilience and resistance against vibrations
  • Locking screws are secured against loss by an integrated retention geometry
  • All screws are available in 4-40 UNC or M3 threading with various head shapes
  • Interference-free and constant ground contact towards the mating connector
  • Optionally available with preparation for the Inotec coding system (to avoid mismatching of connectors)
