January 25, 2012 - Featuring nickel-plated zinc hoods and bases with stainless-steel hardware, EPICŪ ULTRA Rectangular Housings thrive in corrosive, electrically noisy, or mechanically challenging environments. Integrated brush-style cable gland enables termination of cable shield with 360° contact area, and forms conductive shell around contacts to virtually eliminate electrical interference. Since lip seal between top and bottom components is recessed, it is totally enclosed by housing when mated and latched.

The Lapp Group has developed a new line of rectangular connector housings designed to thrive in corrosive, electrically noisy or mechanically challenging environments. Called EPICŪ ULTRA, the new housing features nickel-plated zinc hoods and bases with stainless-steel hardware. Together, these corrosion-resistant materials allow the new housing to survive in applications that that would prove challenging for traditional painted aluminum housings.

EPICŪ ULTRA features an integrated brush-style cable gland, which provides a fast and easy method to terminate a cable shield with a 360-degree, low resistance contact area. Along with the nickel-plated housing, this forms a conductive shell-or Faraday cage-around the electrical contacts to virtually eliminate electrical interference.

The connector housing's unique mechanical design improves both sealing and strain relief. EPICŪ ULTRA's built-in cable gland not only improves sealing and strain relief but also speeds assembly and eliminates a possible leakage point. Additionally, the lip seal between the top and bottom housing components has been recessed so it is totally enclosed by the housing when mated and latched. This design feature protects the lip seal from mechanical damage and exposure to UV radiation when installed outdoors.
