Established in 1923, British-based Bulgin Components is a leading global designer and manufacturer of connectors, fuseholders, and switches. It was founded by research and development proponent Arthur Bulgin OBE—a life member of the Royal Society of Arts and of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, and one of the six founding members of the Radio and Electronic Components Manufacturers’ Federation (RECMF).RoHS, REACH, and ISO 9001 compliant, Bulgin manufactures the following interconnect products:
For joining electrical circuits together, connectors are needed. Bulgin produces a wide range of interconnect solutions. For strong, rapid connections in harsh environments, the Bulgin 7000 Series Buccaneer connectors are ideal. IP66, IP68, and IP69K certified, the 7000 Series Buccaneer of circular connectors are environmentally sealed to prevent dust and water from entering the system. The UL94-V0 rated, UV stable, halogen free, all-plastic housing of the connectors are designed with quick mating and release mechanisms. The “scoop-proof” contacts prevent data loss from mismatching, and are built for blind mating applications. Polarization and visual alignment features ensure proper mating.
To convert electric power into radio waves, an antenna is required. Bulgin’s portfolio of interconnect products includes the SMB (SubMiniature B) Waterproof Antenna. Resistant to environmental degradation, the SMB Waterproof Antenna radiates omnidirectionally at a half-wavelength configuration. It is specifically engineered for the 2.4GHz, 440-470MHz, and 900/1800/1900MHz frequency bands. Manufactured to IP68 EN60529 standards, the SMB Waterproof Antenna is also dustproof via its secure screw thread locking.
Designed to hold a wide range of battery sizes—AAA(RO3), AA(R6), C(R14), CR123, D(R20), and PP3(6R61), Bulgin’s battery holders can fit one, two, three, or four cells. Easily customizable to a client’s needs, the battery holders fixing styles include screw and flange panel fixing, as well as PCB and base mounting variants. The panel-mounted models are produced in two styles: standard fixing and front panel sealed. The open frame styles are PCB- or base-mounted with an interlocking mechanism to join adjacent holders together. They are produced from high-quality molding and metal components to ensure steadfast connection.
Resistant to vandalism, Bulgin’s line of LED indicators are manufactured in a variety of bezel, LED, and color styles. They are panel mounted and meet the IP67 criteria for hermetically sealed front panel use. Designed to complement Bulgin’s family of vandal-resistant switches, the LED indicators are similarly designed with stainless steel bodies that resist harsh environment applications.
