TE Connectivity Launches New Circular HD Product Line
Circular connectors.
Harrisburg, PA — TE Connectivity is introducing the new Circular High Density (HD) connector product line as a low-cost alternative to 38999 and other circulars for rugged non-Mil Spec applications. The Circular HD family offers more than 400 options in a wide range of cable and panel mounting options, shell sizes, insert configurations and gender options.

They are suitable for military and commercial use, including radio equipment, medical equipment, test equipment, audio and video equipment, data acquisition and industrial control. The connectors offer: push/pull self-locking mating and unmating; scoop proof, blind mating; operating range of -65 to +125°C; durability of 1000 mating cycles; five shell bodies ranging from 14mm diameter to 27mm diameter; panel-mount receptacles; IP68 rated with potted, solder cup or PCB termination; 96-hour salt spray exposure; The connectors are able to withstand 37 g's of vibration and 50 g's of shock; cable-attached plugs and receptacles; solder cup termination; full range of insertion configurations: power, signal, power and signal; up to 40 signal contacts; up to 20A current rating; multiple keying options; chromate or black chromate finish.
