The primary reason for the design change was to improve the quality and production of the product by eliminating cold solder joints and replacing them with a crimp mounting process. An optimized insert and a metal screw thread have special contours to ensure optimal networking and the best possible anti-twist protection, while the base of the molded body provides for flexible kink protection. The products have an IP 67 / IP 68 protection rating.
