Bulgin – an Elektron Technology connectivity brand – has unveiled the latest additions to its rugged Buccaneer range, introducing solder contact options for the popular Buccaneer 6000 and 7000 series of environmentally-sealed connectors. Featuring quick and convenient locking without the need for specialist tools, these connectors provide rapid installation and a robust interface – even where access is restricted.

The Buccaneer range is designed to withstand the harshest environments, meeting IP66, IP68 and IP69K standards to ensure secure power and signal connectivity. These latest updates to the range mean that engineers and product design professionals can now choose between crimp terminals for fast, easy installation, and solder contacts for a more long-term solution with minimal voltage drop.

To further increase flexibility, these robust connectors are also now rated for use with up to 16 AWG (1.29 mm) wires, this applied to the 8 pole or 10 pole options for Buccaneer 6000 and 7000 series connectors respectively. Together with fully interchangeable metal and plastic body constructions, the Buccaneer 6000/7000 series can be truly tailored to meet the needs of individual applications, simplifying product design and construction.

David Luu, Product Marketing Analyst for Bulgin, commented: “The Buccaneer range is designed for use across a broad range of demanding applications, providing compact, cost-effective and, most importantly, easy-to-use solutions that offers complete environmental protection. These latest offerings are testament to our continued investment in this popular product line, and our ability to adapt quickly to meet customer requirements.”
