HNM 10 000-plus range widening


ILME HNM – High Number of Matings range keeps widening.

The offer covers several fronts.

The new RKAX size “21.21” metal housings (bulkhead and surface mounted) and hoods with CLASS single locking lever break into the market for rectangular connectors, coming together with a wide range of connector inserts for 5 A, 10 A, 16 A and 40 A, and the re-designed RQF/M 05, with integrated HNM screw-type PE terminal.

The new combined connectors RXC 4/2 and RXC 4/8 which, thanks to the HNM treatment, extend from 500 to 10 000 mating cycles ensuring optimal performance.

New metal concept


Smaller, faster, safer, and easier to connect.

These are the keywords summing up the continuous trends in connectors and connectivity.

Components for the automation industry are required to remain compact and small, but along with the size, the connectors have to be resistant to vibrations and maintain their seal to withstand rugged environments.

To meet these needs, ILME has developed the new CQA / MQA 08 enclosures which stand out for features and functionality guaranteed over time:

  • compact overall dimension size “32.13”
  • hoods in one piece for handling any wiring combination
  • fully metallic
  • with a robust stainless steel lever
  • EMC-ready if equipped with suitable M25 EMC cable gland

CX 01 YA: power for storage


When it comes to serve the growing energy transition market, which requires high power features combined with compactness, the integration of power systems and relevant cable assemblies has to be safe, cost-effective and space-saving.

ILME presents its own solution, the CX 01 YAF/M high-power MIXO module, designed to minimize its space installation requirements while guaranteeing a 200 A rating performance.


The smart asset of this new module is the special insulating cover plate:

  • allowing the connection of DIN 46235 pre-insulated crimp cable lugs
  • while avoiding accidental contact between cable lugs of adjacent modules

The result is a compact 90° connection type, which means no bending of large diameter wires (up to 70 mm2), and the same voltage rating (1000 V) of the standard 200 A crimp module.

SQUICH® connectors for 10.000 mating cycles


Machine interfaces and system components that are connected and disconnected several times a day require high-performance connectors as frequent mating cycles are the norm.

 For such conditions ILME offers the RSH and RDSH inserts, designed to maximize ease of use and minimize maintenance downtime.

These inserts combine the special gold plating and lubrication features typical of the HNM (High Number of Matings) series with all benefits of the ILME proprietary SQUICH® technology: tool-less connection, fast and reliable wiring, high resistance to vibrations.

Key characteristics:

  • Special contacts with galvanic high-performance gold plating for 10 000 mating cycles
  • RSH inserts with 6 / 10 / 16 / 24 poles and ratings 16A / 500V / 6kV / 3
  • RDSH inserts with the highest contact density 9 / 18 / 27 / 42 poles and ratings 10A / 400V / 6kV / 3
  • Probing point for multimeter measurements on each contact and additional coding system (RDSH only)

CX 8/0: high power management


Harsh environment conditions require reliable solutions.

For such needs ILME offers the CX 8/0, a robust power connector providing excellent performance in a smart design.

The safe crimp termination makes CX 8/0 highly resistant.

Compared to other solutions on the market, available in axial screw technology, this connector guarantees:

  • higher resistance to mechanical stresses such as vibration, shock and strain on wire strands
  • gas tightness providing outstanding corrosion resistance
  • faster connection time and more consistent results
