A new fully assembled overmolded connectivity solution has been released by Turck Australia for J1939 Deutsch applications. Designed for increased longevity and durability, especially in harsh environment applications, the fully assembled solution also reduces installation time.
Turck’s newly designed overmolded J1939 Deutsch connectors are recommended for mobile equipment and oil and gas applications, where environmental factors such as shock, vibration, cold temperatures, moisture, and oils can affect performance.
Features such as an overmolded design, extreme life jacketing, IP67 rating, and extreme cold weather performance provide additional reinforcement, abrasion and oil resistance, and superior performance in a ready-to-use solution. Turck’s industry-leading extremelife-60 cabling in the overmolded J1939 Deutsch connectors allows for a flexible cable jacket that will not break or crack when pulled in extreme cold.
Turck Product Manager Chris Kunkel said the new solution was developed in response to customer feedback about their need for a durable and easy-to-install connectivity solution for J1939 applications. He explained that Turck combined its long history of overmolded connectivity solutions with the extremelife-60 cabling to offer customers a solution that can truly stand up to the most demanding of environments without the hassles of hard wiring or assembly during installation.
Turck’s overmolded Deutsch cables are constructed following SAE specifications for J1939. Turck offers overmolded J1939-11 solutions for shielded applications, as well as J1939-15 solutions for unshielded applications, terminating resistors, and tees.
