Molex Inc. has introduced a D-sub earthing connector for secure
connections that don’t require the use of special tools or specialist training.
Designed for harsh environments, the connector meets IP66 and IP67 requirements
and protects sensitive equipment such as telecommunications base stations
against water ingress in the field in mated condition. The unmated connector
also is IP-protected thanks to a cap attached to the connector.

D-sub connector protects equipment from stray voltages through a secure and
low-impedance connection to earth. The connector features a 40-A contact to an
earth cable (8 AWG) with straight termination and a metal sealing frame for
rear installation. Two hexagonal bolts enable the connector to be mounted on
the housing. For more information:
