New from ITT Electronic Components is a versatile multipin connector series. The VEAM CIR series can function as an electrical, optical or pneumatic connector, and it is also available in high voltage, twin or tri-axial, hermetic and EMC versions.
Designed originally for the hostile environment of mass transit applications, CIR connectors are also suitable for use in military, commercial, medical, geophysical, entertainment, nuclear and aerospace applications. The design parameters were based on MIL-C-5015, however, its unique positive lock and quick disconnect coupling surpasses the environmental requirements of this military specification. The CIR design has been adopted by NATO as the “standard connector for Ground Fighting Vehicles” and is used extensively in U.S.A. and European military programs.

Coaxial CIR connectors accept most popular RG cables. Fiber styles are available with single or multiple fiber termini. Devices can include a range of insert / grommet materials to provide superior resistance to fuel oils, solvents and elevated temperatures; alternatively they can be supplied with glass to metal hermetic seals in lieu of elastomeric inserts. Other configurations include High voltage, Twin- or tri-axial - size 4 or 8 contacts and RFI/EMI - grounding fingers on plug connectors provide superior plug-to-receptacle (360º) shield integrity. Filtered devices are also available incorporating tubular or planar filter networks.

CIR connectors have also been designed for pneumatic operation. Various insert arrangements with size 4, 8 or 12 cavities accept pneumatic contacts to pass liquid or air, at pressures of up to 110 PSI. Flow valves are additionally available.

Finally, CIR connectors are available with various thermocouple material contacts including; chromel, alumel, copper, constantan and iron.
