Electronics Interconnect connector miniature panel mount

HR34P Series panel mount miniature connector guides itself into the correct mating position with blind mating ability. Constructed with self-aligning elements, device is commonly used for rack-to-panel connectivity in base stations, industrial machinery, medical equipment and more. Connector is suitable for applications where the electrical receptacle is recessed or hidden in a way. The circular connector features a floating screw design that provides a degree of play to absorb misalignment when mating. A gap between the panel and the screw enables floating of ±0.5 mm in X and Y directions. The screws are pre-coated with anti-loosening agent ‘Nylok’. This also reduces assembly time and contributes to reducing the incidence of malfunctions due to variations in the application process, such as vibration and shock impact.
