ITT Interconnect Solutions offers sealed circular connectors for high-pressure operating conditions

ITT Interconnect Solutions in Santa Ana, Calif., is introducing its miniature circular connectors called the MIKQ IP68 series. The new series of connectors is designed to withstand high-pressure operating conditions in tactical communications and control systems, imaging systems, and television camera equipment. The connectors meet IP68 standards and feature a contact system that adheres to a sealant material while maintaining 0.050 contact spacing. “The MIKQ IP68 miniature circular connectors were developed in response to customer requests for harsh environment connectors that provide higher-rated sealing processes in the same physical footprint as the original MIKQ connectors,” describes Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions.

“By employing sealing materials and a contact design, we were able to meet our customers’ needs with a device rated up to 5 PSI.” All insulator and contact areas within the MIKQ IP68 connectors are sealed against environmental elements. The 37-pin connectors feature a twist pin contact system with standard crimp contact wire terminations. The connector is housed in a brass metal shell and features crimped gold-plated contacts. Secure connector mating is achieved with a push-pull coupling mechanism. For more information, visit ITT Interconnect Solutions online at
