ITT ICS announces new fluid-sealed, vibration-resistant multifunctional CA Triple Thread connector for military applications
ITT Interconnect Solutions has announced a new and unique multi-functional addition to its proven range of CA Bayonet connectors, widely regarded as the most versatile and reliable of the MIL-C5015 and VG95234 connectors on the market. With over 5 million purchased since introduction the new CA Triple Thread interconnect employs a unique coupling methodology developed to provide fluid sealing, vibration resistance and safety features which exceed current CA specifications for harsh environment performance.This
The CA Triple Thread connector provides fast, easy and safe coupling/uncoupling and gives outstanding vibration resistance to the stringent standards defined in ISO 16750. It is also sealed to IP69k against fluid ingress. Its rugged shell design features RoHS compliant black zinc iron anticorrosive plating which gives 96-hour salt spray resistance: alternatively an optional RoHS-compliant zinc nickel plating in blue/grey metallic is available giving 500 hours of salt spray resistance.
Contact layouts for the CA Triple Thread connector offer all traditional ITT ICS CA layouts for the respective shell size, with CA Bayonet contacts in a hard silver or optional gold finish, which guarantee a minimum of 500 mating cycles. Insulators are manufactured from high-quality polychloroprene to enable the CA Triple Thread connector to withstand temperatures ranging from -55degC to +125degC. Alternatively, high temperature rubber materials for up to +200degC can be chosen.
The CA Triple Thread interconnect features patented Universal Shielded End Bells, giving excellent strain relief, robust sealing and ensuring 100% signal transmission. A variety of shell styles and accessories are available, including 90 degree end bells, for maximum design flexibility. Commonality of end bells and tooling with all current CA Bayonet series products reduces customer costs in utilising the new CA Triple Thread interconnect.
Suitable applications include defence systems, heavy diesel and gas engines, power-generating units, off-road military vehicles and ships.
