Avnet Abacus signs a pan-European deal with Elektron to distribute its Bulgin and Arcolectric brands throughout Europe.

This agreement extends the existing relationship between the two companies, which have previously worked together to supply customers in the UK and Ireland with connectivity and electro-mechanical components.

The selection of product options available from the distributor include the Buccaneer IP68 and IP69K-rated waterproof connectors, including the new 6000 series- a range of environmentally sealed circular connectors designed to provide secure and safe connections in harsh or hostile conditions.Also available is a range of mains rated inlet and outlet connectors conforming to IEC and EN60320 specifications, which enables solutions to most mains powered equipment and cable applications.

The product line-up also comprises an extensive selection of fuse holders carrying international safety approvals from UL, VDE, CSA and SEMKO, designed to give the maximum levels of protection in complex electronic equipment. In addition, a range of battery holders for AAA, AA, CR123, C, D and PP3 size cells, manufactured from quality plastic moulded and metal components, ensure a secure and reliable connection in applications such as portable and memory back-up equipment, fully complementing the existing battery portfolio available from Avnet Abacus.

Standard and miniature rocker switches, pushbutton switches, double pole splash resistant switches, and smart indicators can also be purchased through the distributor.
