ITT Interconnect introduces rugged electrical connectors for transportation applications

SANTA ANA, Calif., 19 Sept. 2008. ITT Interconnect Solutions in Santa Ana, Calif., is introducing electronic connectors for transportation applications called the Trident series.

The connectors come in six configurations including snap together (rectangular and slimline), multiway (rack & panel), ringlock (circular), neptune (circular) and TNM (circular) devices.

"The connectors also feature IP67 sealing to withstand harsh environments, allowing them to be specified for applications ranging from dashboard signal and power, to air conditioning, to junction boxes and power train in on- and off-road vehicles," says Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions.

Additional applications for the Trident connectors include rail, test, communications and manufacturing equipment, and robotic systems.

The snap together rectangular and slimline connectors feature an operating voltage of 250 volts AC rms. Contact current rating is to 13 amps for the rectangular connector and 10 amps for the slimline version. Insulation resistance is 5000Mohms at 500 volts DC.

Rack & panel connectors are tested to MIL-STD-202 and feature a test voltage of 200 volts AC rms for 60 seconds and an insulation resistance of 5000Mohms at 500 volts DC. Operating temperature ranges from -55 to 125 degrees Celsius

The ringlock connectors feature an operating voltage of 250 Volts AC rms and a contact current rating to 13 amps. Insulation resistance is 5000Mohms at 500 volts DC.

The Neptune and TNM connectors mix signal and power contacts in one housing and feature IP67 sealing. Test voltage is 2000 Volts AC rms, with an insulation resistance of 5000Mohms at 500 volts DC. Working voltage for the Neptune connector is 25 volts. The TNM connector features an operating voltage of 250 Volts AC and one contact current rating of 6 amps or 13 amps (crimp), with 40 amps power contacts.
