TE Connectivity
has carried out two major improvements this year
in its SEACON Micro WET-CON family of connectors. These, according to
the connector supplier, will lead to streamlined manufacturing, faster product
turnaround, and expedited delivery.

First, as of
March 1, these single-ended connectors are lead-free and Restriction of
Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS)-compliant. Previously, customers had to make
a special order if they required the RoHS-compliant connectors.

Also, as of April 1, the SEACON Micro
WET-CON family of connectors are available in standard cable lengths of
1 m, 2 m, and 5 m for cable on inline connectors and 0.5 m for hook-up wire on
bulkhead connectors.

While longer lengths can still be ordered on demand,
standard-length connectors will contribute to reduced lead times. It’s also
worth mentioning that as of April 1, TE Connectivity separately
sells accessories such as locking sleeves.
