SANTA ANA, Calif., 24 April 2009. ITT Interconnect Solutions in Santa Ana, Calif., is offering receptacles for its KP Series circular military connectors. The sealed KP Series military connectors initially were developed for military applications, but also are for industrial because of their reliability as harsh environment connectors.

The military connectors are particularly useful in applications that require connect/disconnect mil spec connectors, company officials say.

In addition to military and aerospace connectors applications, the KP series rugged connector family also is for automotive test equipment, camera and robotic systems, as well as engine, valve, and gearbox controls.

The KP rugged connectors receptacles have solder-to-board contacts and plug connectors in combination with customized end bells/adaptors. The receptacles are available with different solder pin diameters and lengths, while the plug connectors are fabricated with standard or customized end bells, or metric or PG adaptors. KP receptacles enable systems designers to use shielded or unshielded cable with several variations of cable glands, cable conduits and shrink boots.

The KP receptacles are available with gold or flash gold plating in contact sizes 20, 16, and 12. Current rating is 7.5 amps for the size 20 contacts and 10 amps for the size 16 contacts. The receptacles can accommodate 2 to 61 contacts and have a minimum of 500 mating cycles.
