I wanted to start a discussion to try and get some input and inspiration for which types of connectors automation folks are using to wire up their probes, control panels etc. Clearly there are a number of experts/professionals experienced in industrial automation on this board, and as a "seat of the pants engineer", with only a few panels under my belt, I would love some input as to more effective or elegant solutions that may be out there unbeknownst to me.
To get things rolling, here is what I am currently using: Nema twist locks for power which I love and have held up to serious abuse, and for my rtds, auber connectors such as these:
which have not fared nearly as well and have started to get very finicky after a bit of use, which is my primary concern.
Does anyone have any experience with Neutirk PowerCON connectors, 3-pin stereo jacks or have an recommendations for hardy 2-3 wire connectors for thermocouple probes, panel mounts etc.?
