Connector product -- SANTA ANA, Calif., 29 May 2008.ITT Interconnect Solutions in Santa Ana, Calif., is introducing high-temperature circular connectors called the CIR Series that can withstand temperatures as hot as 800 degrees Celsius for at least 15 minutes. The connectors meet European CEN/TS 45545 standards governing railway safety for fire.
Typical applications for the VEAM CIR Series connectors include railway systems, transportation interconnects, and high temperature environments where signal integrity is critical.
Featuring a stainless steel shell and ceramic insulation, the VEAM CIR Series connectors are available with 35 size 12 poles at 40 amps. A silicon rubber grommet ensures sealing, while contacts with a metallic retention clip provide a high integrity contact that will not release under extreme shock and vibration. ITT is also developing the CIR Series connectors with 40 size 16 poles rated at 36 amps and 4 size 16 poles.
