The central element of the Daniels Manufacturing Corporation connector accessory tool product line is the adaptor tool. This unique device is configured in such a manner as to mate perfectly with the corresponding circular connector keying pattern. It, therefore, can be used to hold the connector in a stationary position while the accessory components are being installed or removed. Many keying arrangements and shell sizes are utilized in high reliability wiring systems and great care must be exercised when selecting and using the adaptor tool. DMC has made great effort to combine the most possible applications into each adaptor tool design, thereby minimizing the tool requirements for overall system support. Many other important benefits are designed into DMC adaptor tools.
SINGLE TOOL FOR MULTIPLE KEYING POSITIONS
When multiple keying positions exist within a specific shell size (diameter), DMC engineers have designed each adaptor tool to accommodate as many variations as possible. Most adaptors will mate with six or more connectors having different keying positions. When compared with dummy receptacles or other connector holding devices, this flexibility is not possible.
MULTIPLE KEY ENGAGEMENTS
The critical platings and delicate nature of connector keys are a prime consideration in the design of a secure connector holding system. Therefore, in all cases where the basic connector configuration permits, multiple key engagement is utilized. This allows torque to be applied to a greater surface are and over a larger portion of the circumference of the connector.
ADAPTORS ARE AVAILABLE FOR BOTH PLUGS AND RECEPTACLES
The rotating coupling mechanism found on most plug connectors is the primary adaptor tool design; however, many users currently realize the benefits of adaptor tools when assembling or servicing receptacle connectors. DMC has both versions available for most circular connector series.
STANDARD SQUARE DRIVE MOUNTING
All DMC Adaptor tools are made with a standard square drive (either 3.8" or 1/4") socket for easy utilization with common torque measuring devices or other tooling. This eliminates the need for special mounting fixtures or other considerations common to the use of dummy receptacles and similar equipment.
SIMPLE ORIENTATION TO THE CONNECTOR
All adaptor tools have an indicator (dot) which visually orients it with the master key on the connector. This enables the user to orient the two components for mating without trial and error fumbling.
ECONOMICAL, RELIABLE, AND AVAILABLE
There is not a precision system for holding circular connectors available anywhere which is more economical, reliable, or readily available to meet your needs that the DMC adaptor tools.
