Features of Tuff-Link Bus System Connector Products

The family of Bus System Connector Products features:

  • Both Mini-Link™ & Micro-Link™ 5-pole connectors which are available as either single or double-ended cable assemblies in a variety of male/female and straight/90° configurations with optional stainless steel couplers
  • Mating male or female panel mount receptacles for any cable assembly configuration.
    • These receptacles feature both an O-Ring and locknut to create the tightest seal possible - features that most other connector manufacturers offer only as an option.
  • Mini-Port & Micro-Port Bus Box in two styles:
    • Passive Feed-Thru Boxes are ideal for applications where the trunk line of the bus network is adjacent to machines since this style box takes the place of a molded tee.
      • Both the Mini & Micro versions of the passive feed-thru box are available with 4 or 6 ports
    • Passive Drop Boxes are available with 4, 6 or 8 ports in both the Mini & Micro sizes.
  • Tees and Terminators molded from durable PVC with optional stainless steel couplers
