Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH has now become MPE Garry GmbH’s global distribution partner. As the only broadliner on a global scale, Rutronik is marketing the entire product range of precision connectors and circuit board connection systems manufactured by MPE Garry as well as the network connection solutions of its subsidiary K+B GmbH with immediate effect.
The main market for the fittings, pin headers and female headers, device plugs as well as customer-specific punched parts or stamped bent parts is the industrial market. “Rutronik has a strong global position in the industrial market and has established a great deal of expertise in the connectors field,” explains Peter Fuchs, Product Manager at MPE Garry. “That is why we see Rutronik as the ideal partner with whom we can continue to grow and expand our customer base on a worldwide scale.”
Kathrin Felten, Product Sales Manager for connectors and cables at Rutronik, adds: “MPE Garry, just like its subsidiary K+B, supply extremely reliable products and customer-specific solutions with excellent cost-effectiveness. These represent a great potential that we wish to exploit together.”
New device connectors according to IEC-320 from K+B
The new series from K+B comprises network connector plugs according to IEC-320 with integrated overvoltage protection to provide a reliable shield against voltage peaks. The device plugs are fitted with two device fuses, and optionally with voltage selectors as well as integrated single or double-pole mains switches. On the connection side they have plug contacts according to DIN 46244 or soldered contacts.
The snap-on assembly means that they can be installed easily. There are standard versions for four different front panel thicknesses. As the connectors fit the same assembly apertures as the versions without overvoltage protection, an upgrade is always possible without any significant effort.
