WILMINGTON, Mass., Oct. 14, 2013 ­/PRNewswire/ -- Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking TE Connectivity's (TE) UV-Resistant Sealed Circular Plastic Connectors (CPC).

TE's sealed CPC is ideal for UV resistance in outdoor applications because it is now manufactured with UL F1-rated resin. This UL F1 rating meets industry standards for long-term UV exposure, allowing the housings to be suitable for outside applications where connectors may be subject to frequent or extended exposure to sunlight.

The new CPC is sealed to IP67 with no additional enclosure needed to protect the mated connector from water exposure, making it easier and less expensive to install. The circular configuration requires less space than a rectangular-style connector with an equal number of contacts for an efficient use of space on your equipment.

Receptacle and plug housings accept Type III+ signal contacts and/or AMP POWERBAND (size 8) contacts. The housings come in three series designed to handle standard signal, power with current up to 50A per contact, and combinations of signal and power in the same housing. All housing variations include sealing to IP67. Mounting options include panel mount and free hanging.
