A Brief Overview of M24 Bayonet Connectors

Views: 1283 Author: Site Editor Publish Time: 2023-01-28 Origin: Site

M24 Bayonet connectors are circular connectors that provide a secure and simple-to-use connection by rotating the locking ring until it latches into the mechanism.

When compared to screw and push-fit connectors, this standardized locking type allows for faster and more secure connections.

Because complete coupling or decoupling is accomplished with a quick one-third turn of the coupling nut, it is commonly referred to as a "quick-disconnect" connector.

Characteristics of M24 Bayonet connectors

 1. Easily connect to pins and ramps

 The M24 Bayonet coupling mates with bayonet pins and ramps rather than threads. On the receptacle's perimeter, three equally spaced passivated stainless steel bayonet pins are used. The pins slide into locking detents by sliding through undercut ramps on the coupling ring of the plug.

Tactile, audible (clicks), and visual (markings) confirm that the connector is securely mated. Some plastic connectors may have a metal coupling nut for added strength. Bayonet connectors are used to send power or signals.

2. Reverse connection

In connectors that previously used threaded coupling, a reverse-bayonet coupling configuration is frequently used, and in this case the bayonet pins are located on the coupling nut's underside.

The reverse bayonet coupling arrangement allows for simple mating and unmating, requiring only 120 rotations and providing audible, tactile, and visual indications of positive coupling.

3. Connect with two or more cables

M24 Bayonet connectors are used to connect two cables or a cable to another connector, such as a BNC, C, or ST connector.

4. The versatility usage of the M24 bayonet connector

The bayonet's versatility makes it useful for a variety of product series (e.g., subminiature, miniature, and power categories), as well as a variety of applications (e.g., medical equipment, outdoor, and heavy machinery).

The bayonet's secure mating makes it ideal for applications requiring moisture resistance, as well as shock and vibration resistance.

5. Easy to maintain

It’s easy to maintain when you compare it with other connectors such as the threaded connectors and the push-pull connectors. So, this point made M24 bayonet connectors stand out in the market and it’s preferred over the other connectors of similar features

 Application of M24 bayonet connector

M24 bayonet connector has a variety of applications such as aircraft, off-road vehicles, construction machinery, industrial devices, and test and measurement.

The M24 bayonet connector is used basically for mostly in industrial connectors which are the power generators, sensors, and engines.

Factors to consider when you purchase an M24 bayonet connector

 Below are some factors to consider when you are purchasing a connector for your home or office or for your various applications which include, the technical requirements of the connectors, environmental conditions (vibration, shock, moisture, and dust), and also the required mating period.
