THORKOM II

Cooper Interconnect’s New Thorkom™ II IP68 rated waterproof connectors are the latest in a long history of high-quality interconnect products.

The simple twist-lock and dual O-ring design provide a solid waterproof connection for any environment where uninterrupted reliability and cost are important.

Q. What is IP68?

A. IP is an industry standard for Ingress Protection.

The first number ‘6’ represents protection from dust and particles, 6 being the highest.

The second number ‘8’ represents protection against liquid/water, 9 being the highest.

Thorkom I

vs.

Thorkom II

16


Thorkom II uses the same screw machine contacts as Thorkom I.

All PCB mount connectors come with contacts pre-loaded, so the customer does not have to buy them separately. – Thorkom II

The same crimp and insertion tools can use for Thorkom I and II.

Thorkom II offers a potting shell and field installable backshells for both sizes, 7 & 24.

When ordering a cable mounted part, the backshell / potting shell comes with the connector as a complete item. – Thorkom II

Contacts are rated for high power at 5 Amps.

Thorkom II connectors are capable of greater than 1000 mating cycles with no loss of performance.

Most parts are available with optional Polysulfone, a high temperature material able to withstand the sterilization process in the medical field.

Enhanced safety feature prevents accidental unmating.
