Connectors provide a path for any stray voltage
AMPHENOL INDUSTRIAL Pre-Earth First Mate Last Break (FMLB) connectors provide a path for any stray voltage to be shifted to a safe ground in an effort to avoid harming both the operator and voltage-sensitive equipment. Devices are designed to meet the safety requirements for applications where a protective circuit from the ground to the shell is needed. Devices feature a first mate, last break capability where the grounding pin engages prior to the engagement of the remaining pins, making any mating cycle electrically safe. Additional attributes include a receptacle with IP67 protection when unmated and plug when in the mated condition for superior moisture sealing and waterproofing; conformity with European safety standards of DIN VDE 0627; SAE AS50151 dimensions and performance; as well as being intermateable with MS 5015 and 97 series styles. Product also meets the IEC/EN 61984 standard.
