Features of Tuff-Link Bus System Connectors

The family of Bus System Connector Products features:

  • Both Mini-Link™ & Micro-Link™ 5-pole connectors available as 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 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.
