GlobTek Twist-Locking Barrel Connectors

User-added imageUser-added image

Coaxial barrel connectors are the most common type of connectors used to transmit power and signals in electronic devices. However, vibration and accidental tugs can easily disconnect standard barrels, resulting in critical system downtime or data loss. Globtek’s locking barrel connectors prevent these costly failures by securing connections.

Featuring an ingenious twist-lock mechanism, these connectors latch firmly onto mating jacks, eliminating disconnections from shocks, jostling or vibration. The smart design maintains a slim, low-profile shape, with a similar form factor and appearance to traditional barrels. These connectors provide workability with choices like locking barrel plugs, corresponding locking jacks, and locking T-plugs. With a 5.5mm outer diameter (OD) and inner diameter (ID) sizes of either 2.1 mm or 2.5 mm, they effortlessly integrate into a range of setups.

The locking barrel plug serves as the fundamental female DC barrel, excluding the wire connection. It engages by rotating the plug after secure insertion, effectively locking it into a jack. Offering a hassle-free connection, these locking plugs are indispensable for adapting to initial production design or integrating into current prototype iterations with a reliable, standards-based connectivity. Upgrade your creation with our versatile locking barrel plugs, guaranteeing your designs stay connected with ease and precision:
