A new fully assembled overmolded connectivity solution has been released
by Turck Australia for J1939 Deutsch applications. Designed for increased
longevity and durability, especially in harsh environment applications, the
fully assembled solution also reduces installation time.
Turck’s newly designed overmolded J1939 Deutsch connectors are
recommended for mobile equipment and oil and gas applications, where
environmental factors such as shock, vibration, cold temperatures, moisture,
and oils can affect performance.
Features such as an overmolded design, extreme life jacketing, IP67
rating, and extreme cold weather performance provide additional reinforcement,
abrasion and oil resistance, and superior performance in a ready-to-use
solution. Turck’s industry-leading extremelife-60 cabling in the overmolded
J1939 Deutsch connectors allows for a flexible cable jacket that will not break
or crack when pulled in extreme cold.
Turck Product Manager Chris Kunkel said the new solution was developed
in response to customer feedback about their need for a durable and easy-to-install
connectivity solution for J1939 applications. He explained that Turck combined
its long history of overmolded connectivity solutions with the extremelife-60
cabling to offer customers a solution that can truly stand up to the most
demanding of environments without the hassles of hard wiring or assembly during
Turck’s overmolded Deutsch cables are constructed following SAE
specifications for J1939. Turck offers overmolded J1939-11 solutions for
shielded applications, as well as J1939-15 solutions for unshielded
applications, terminating resistors, and tees.
