The safety connector disconnects when more than 10 lbs (4.5 kg) of pull force is exerted, and can be reconnected after the sensor and cable are safely retrieved from the monitoring point. The connector disconnects, or “breaks away,” and can be reconnected hundreds of times. The connector works in temperatures from -25 ºC to 85 ºC (-13 ºF to 185 ºF), and is IP67 rated, making it ideal for the harsh industrial environment.
The safety connector feature is being introduced with 12 popular models of MaxFlex cables for portable vibration data collection, but can be ordered as an optional feature on all MaxFlex models. Wilcoxon makes MaxFlex cables compatible with portable data collectors from SKF, Emerson (CSI), and Rockwell (Entek IRD), as well as many generic cable assemblies that are compatible with most vibration data collectors. MaxFlex cables have reinforced cable joints at the sensor and connector end, the most common place that competitive cables fail. MaxFlex cables are rugged and reliable, with excellent EMI/RFI shielding, to serve the needs of field data acquisition.
