Does there exist a bracket mount to use with the MPP series?

 

Recently there has been a new bracket developed to use with the MPP-series, the part MPPBPMS:

This bracket can be side mounted on your panel, and the threaded receptacle MPPRZZ and MPPREZZ can be turned in the mounted bracket MPPBPMS.

By fixing the retaining nut MPPNZ on the other side of the bracket onto the receptacle, your installation is fixed.

Here is the technical drawing of the mounting bracket:

What do i need to use when installing large quantities of the MTH series?

The first thing you'll need to take care off is to select the correct retaining washer.

MTHWFS is a washer which is a lot easier and much faster to install than the MTHWSS:

You only need to push the MTHWFS on the stud, while you need pliers to install the washer MTHWSS

When installing the washer MTHWFS, you can also use the tool ITWP-1Z so quickly push on the washer on the stud

Note: if you're using chrome plated studs, the washer MTHWFS won't work, since you can't use that washer on the chrome plated parts, as it would damage the stud.

 

How to select your rivets?

You must use countersunk rivets to fix the receptacle of the quarter turn. Select in below table the rivets.
we advise to prepare your panel with a 120° angle countersunk

Rivets for stainless steel receptacles

Here is the typical size of a rivet: panel prepartion:

What is the number of cycles of Camloc quarter turn?

The cycle number of the TurnLock quarter turn can be repeated more than 15000 times if the assembly instructions are followed.

If you have an application and special use, the number of TurnLock quarter turn cycles will not be optimal.

Here is an example with the MTH Series (Meduim Duty Tiny Housed):

If we want to choose the MTH Series, the length of the board is number 5 for a thickness between 3.8 and 4.6 mm with a type 1 receptacle.

What is a Turnlock quarter turn?

Turnlocks are fasteners that are an easy and fast solution to open and close panels with a minimum effort.

However, these aren't fragile closing mechansims.

Turnlocks are resistant to vibrations, meaning that the turnlock quarter turn fastener will not open by itself but by manipulation.

A turnlock assembly gives you an easy and secure locking solution that's very easy to operate.

 

Components:

A turnlock assembly needs at least 3 parts:

  • the stud
  • the retaining washer
  • the receptacle

Some series like the HGR needs also a grommet and a retaining ring.

Design:

Turnlocks connect components under an elastic preload. The tensile load of each assembly in the catalogue was reached after overcoming the springelement generated preload. This is unlike threaded fasteners, turnlocks do not rely on the elasticity of joint and fastenermaterials to accomplish preload. The stud assembly or receptacle was designed with a springelement. This allows the repeated application of controlled preload with assured reliability over a high number of cycles.

How does it work?

When the studassembly is rotated, the stud cross pin rides up the cam causing a controlled joint preload to be applied. This can be done by rotating the stud 90 degrees. At this point a positive mechanical stop is reached and the crosspin falls into the locking detent. This mechanism makes sure that there is a near perfect resistance to vibration induced loosening of the assembly assured.
