Elinker electric Weather Pack Terminal blocks are environmentally sealed electrical connections designed to withstand exposure to extreme temperatures and moisture. Terminals are tin plated and have special core wings which allow crimp-only connections, eliminating the need for solder. The terminal block and cavity seals are triple-ribbed and made of self-lubricating silicone. Cavity plugs are available to fill unused cavities. |
Both in-line and panel-mount connections are available: In-line Connections—An in-line connection consists of a shroud terminal block housing male terminals mated to a tower terminal block assembly housing female terminals. Panel-mount Connections—A panel-mount connection consists of a tower terminal block assembly housing male terminals mated to a device housing female terminals. Benefits Sealed system specifically designed to withstand exposure to extreme temperatures, chemicals and fluids Pin and sleeve configuration to alleviate stress relaxation Secondary lock and Terminal block Position Assurance (CPA) for improved system design Dual-locking tangs on terminals help prevent backing out Terminal plugging requires no orientation Positive locking indexing prevents mismating of terminal blocks Low energy, low voltage capability for vehicle electronics
Weather Pack proven harsh environmentally sealed components can be utilized in both in-line and panel-mount applications. They are ideally suited for use in harsh environments where resistance to temperature extremes, chemicals and fluids are a must like with commercial vehicle and marine applications. The general application guidelines above are for reference only and may not account for all the variables that would be present in an actual application. For additional detailed product performance information, contact Elinker electric. When designing a part to mate with a Weather Pack terminal block, consult Elinker electric print 12020084. Always request the latest copy from Elinker electric before releasing a new design. It is recommended that the above terminal block/terminal gender guidelines be followed.
Weather Pack terminals utilize a flex-pin and lap-lock design to alleviate the problem of stress relaxation. They also have dual-locking tangs which lock into the terminal block cavity and help prevent backing out. Terminal plugging requires no orientation and positive indexing prevents mis-mating of terminal blocks. Because Weather Pack provides exceptional sealing performance, it is extensively used in tough applications including construction, off-road and farm equipment.
