Sockets are generally used in automation technology to connect sensors and actuators with connectors to splitter boxes.
Even when fastened by hand, a perfect lasting seal of sensor and actuator connections is guaranteed. The integrated end stop protects the O-ring against destruction caused by over-tightening the nut. Even in harsh industrial environments, the connectors are protected against unintended loosening by a special vibration protection. Some types are fitted with highly visible LEDs for operation and switching status indication.
