The 4-pin right-angle connector assembly is comprised of 2 components, the straight connector and the right angle adapter. These parts can be purchased individually or as a set. The straight connector used in this assembly is different from the straight 4-pin connector. The connector wires in the right angle assembly are longer to accommodate the bend in the adapter. The opening in the extended elbow is a great place to easily attach a dust cap or permanent identification tag to the sensor.
The right-angle connector keeps the sensor from rolling off of the table or laboratory bench and prevents cable stress caused by tight bends as the cable exits the sensor. A sensor with the old style straight connector can be easily retrofitted to use the new right-angle connector, which also has a place to attach the connector dust cap and an identification tag. The right-angle connector combines form and function to help make the sensors more useful and extend their life.
