Tuchel connectors – What are they and how do we use them?

19 10 2011

A tuchel connector is probably best described as a screw version of a circular connector.

There is a variety of tuchel connectors available on the current market, including the Amphenol Tuchel Circular Connectors C091D.

The male and female circular cable connectors come with 3-8 and 12 and 14 contacts depending on the clients’ requirements, and crimp in 3 to 8 positions.

These have ingress protection to IP67 and IP65, offering complete EMI security in the full mated and locked position. 

Slimline Smart Card Connectors

Amphenol Tuchel PCP Slimline Smart Card Connectors are another option. This more specific type of connector has compact dimensions of 56mm x 30mm x 3mm, which suits most applications where there is limited space for connectors. 

The PCB Slimline Smart Card Connector has protected contacts, metal casings for good stability in harsh environments and a secure switch so they do not get turned on or off accidentally.

An easy operation tuchel connector would be the Amphenol Tuchel Series C 16 M eco mate circular connector.

This connector is easy to assemble, safe from high vibrations due to its non-sensitive screw locking, and has better grip for both safe and secure handling.
