The PowerBox PIK range of connectors exploits modern Hot-Melt technology to combine proven connector systems used in modelling applications. All the joints in our cables are soldered on our premises, and subsequently checked by a second staff member for correct polarity and quality of workmanship. The connector is then placed in a specially made injection-moulding tool, in which it is encapsulated with a special plastic at a temperature of 220°C and a pressure of 10 bar.
This process permanently seals the soldered joints as well as acting as a strain relief. Neither mechanical stress nor environmental influences - such as damp or heat - can have any adverse effect on this connection. The plastic we use is resistant to vibration, oxidation, acids, alkalis and fuels, and is temperature-resistant from -30°C to +90°C.
The cables we supply include types with different conductor cross-sections, adapters, charge leads and three-core servo leads. Cables with a cross-sectional area of up to 1.0 mm² have PVC insulation, while the 1.5 mm² and 2.5 mm² types feature silicone insulation.
