Hirose Electric Co., Ltd. will release the “MT” Series of lever-lock interface connectors that improve the wiring workability of motors through our entire channel. The MT series allows efficient wiring by simply pulling down the lever lock, and contributes to space saving in the connection area by combining power signals.
● Requires Smaller Sets and More Efficient Wiring Work
Amid the recent labor shortage, the demand for industrial robots has grown significantly due to the shift to smart factories, and there is an emerging need for miniaturization, especially in cooperative robots, for which demand is growing. On the other hand, motors mounted on the drive unit of a robot require separate wiring for power, signal, and brake connections for each application, which occupies a large area in the interface section. In addition, many conventional connectors are fastened with screws, which makes wiring time-consuming and may cause waterproofing problems due to loosening of the screws.
● Lever Lock and Power Signal Hybrid Reduces Wiring Time and Set Size
To solve these problems, we have developed the "MT" series, a lever-lock interface connector with combined power, signal, and brake connections. By combining power, signal, and brake connections, it saves space in the motor connection area and contributes to downsizing of the equipment. Furthermore, locking is completed by simply pulling down the lever, which saves time in wiring work. Since no screws are used, there is no risk of loosening, and IP67 waterproof performance is ensured in the engaged state. The high vibration resistance suitable for the operating environment of industrial equipment is also ensured, making it a product that is well suited for these applications.
