Pomona Electronics’ new line Banana Plug and Jack feature secure wire connections and voltage protection for safe handling.

Pomona Electronics introduces in-line banana plug Model 6383 and in-line banana jack model 6384, designed for making secure wire connections and to facilitate safe handling practices with test leads in a variety of applications including labs, factories, and field use.

The new plugs (male) and jacks (female) are compatible with most standard (4mm) shrouded banana plugs and jacks and attach easily onto any stranded wire from 18 to 22 AWG using common tooling. Once assembled, the plug provides an attractive, easy-to-handle grip while providing voltage protection for the user.

Suitable for use with insulated wire from 1,5 mm to 3,8 mm in diameter, the model 6383 and 6384 feature an over-voltage rating of CAT II 300V and comply with IEC 1010 standards.

Operating temperate range is -29C to +135C .

The plug and jack can be easily assembled onto any wire from 22 AWG to 18 AWG using commonly available crimp tools. After crimping the stripped end of the wire into the plug or jack with a bare-terminal crimp tool, the insulator can be pulled over the crimp area and locked into place. The finished assembly, when properly assembled, will meet all the requirements of UL-3111 and will also comply with EN61010 for handheld use.
