For years, Yamaichi Electronics has been continuously expanding its Y-Circ P circular connector portfolio.
"We have developed a new flexible system for easy unlocking, in order to offer our customers a convenient
extension to existing products," explains Matthias Schuster, product manager for circular connectors at
The opening assistance is compatible with all straight and angled cable connectors of the Y-Circ P series
and can be used for all standard sizes. With its facilitating release function, this accessory helps the
user to gain full advantage of the push-pull connectors – especially within tight mounting spaces.
Merely pulling on the lanyard leads to an unlocking effect for the push-pull circular connector. The lanyard
extends the circular connector to a certain extent.
Therefore, the push-pull system´s feature and advantages
completely maintain. An increase in time-efficiency can be gained through a better accessibility of the
unlocking device, on behalf of extremely tight connector positions. Reason being the circular connectors are
accessible and can be pulled without much effort.
Yamaichi Electronics offers new products of the Y-Circ P series in a pre-assembled condition. The new
release system can be used immediately after delivery.
On the other hand, the unlocking aid is offered as a retrofit kit for field assembly. Customers who have
already purchased circular connectors can easily assemble the unlocking aid themselves without suffering any
functional disadvantages compared to the product with pre-assembled unlocking relief. Yamaichi’s supporting
tool YCP-ACT-2 assists for an easy installation.
Customer-specific connectors as well as customer-specific release aids can also be realised quickly and
flexibly due to our own production and development in Germany.
The YAMAICHI configurator supports our customers by a correct assembly process and generates an appropriate
lanyard for a selected product to make ordering easy.
