Turck (USA) has released an overmolded connectivity solution for J1939 Deutsch applications. It increases longevity and durability while reducing installation time.
The connector solution is suitable for mobile equipment and oil and gas applications, where environmental factors such as shock, vibration, cold temperatures, moisture, and oils can affect performance. Due to its overmolded design, IP67 rating, and cold weather performance, the connectors provide additional reinforcement and abrasion and oil resistance in a ready-to-use solution. The connectors come equipped with Turck’s extremelife-60 cabling, which allows for a flexible cable jacket that does not break or crack when pulled in extreme cold.
“We heard from our customers that the industry was lacking a durable and easy to install solution for J1939 applications,” said Chris Kunkel, Product Manager for Turck. “By combining Turck’s long history of overmolded connectivity solutions with our extremelife-60 cabling, we can now offer these customers a solution that can truly stand up to the most demanding of environments, and that involves no hard wiring or assembling to install.”
The cables are constructed following SAE specifications for J1939. The company offers overmolded J1939-11 solutions for shielded applications, as well as J1939-15 solutions for unshielded applications, terminating resistors, and tees.
