Only Connect: Weidmüller RockStar connectors
Welcome to another post in the series by Nick Locke, of Nicab Ltd, who has over 15 years experience in the electronics manufacturing industry specialising in interconnection cable assembly.
You want to be a Rock star right? Well now you can be with Weidmüller RockStar Connectors!
Every now and then a new product comes onto the scene that is similar to other products in a competitive market yet has one simple difference that literally blows away the competition!
Enter the Weidmüller RockStar, a range of robust industrial connectors similar to other well known brands with a few exceptions, making this a unique range of connectors.
The main unique feature is the connectors are all Push-In connectors, eliminating the need for buying separate contacts and expensive tooling. This is a seriously simple yet effective benefit to the busy cable assembler that does not want to have to buy tooling to build low quantity prototypes typical with industrial applications.
There are other simple features such as captive screws (how many of us have lost screws in the workshop and had to purchase replacement connectors!) Universal Cable Gland & Unique locking system.
One thing that is clear is Weidmüller have spent a great deal of money on the promotion of the products and their website is first class. Not only are the images stunning, the information is simple and clear along with video presentations. Weidmüller understand that marketing products is not just about technical information. It also has to have an appealing aesthetic, which it certainty does!
You can order samples on line and I recommend this product because it is just great in all the right places!
