Miniature cylindrical connectors

Amphenol Industrial Operations has released the RoHS-compliant version of its PT series miniature cylindrical connectors suitable for environmental sealing or pressurized applications across a wide range of industries.

According to the company, it has reduced or, where feasible, eliminated regulated hazardous substances from these connectors. The RoHS-compliant PT series connectors are available in shell sizes from 6 to 24. Standard shell styles include wall mount receptacle, cable receptacle, box mount receptacle, jam nut receptacle, thru-bulkhead receptacle, and straight plug.

The cylindrical connectors feature a five key/keyway polarization with bayonet lock coupling to ensure positive mating with no chance of cross plugging. They are manufactured with rugged aluminum shell components. In addition, spring tension provided by a wave washer in the coupling nut maintains the interfacial seal between mating halves.

Other key features include molded neoprene insert and main joint gaskets for moisture sealing at the gasket and electrical isolation of the contact in the insert. Machined copper alloy pins and sockets are gold plated to eliminate contact corrosion and offer an indefinite shelf life.

In addition, the PT series is intermateable and intermountable with Amphenol's other miniature cylindrical connectors series, including the SP and MS/PT series of connectors.

Pricing for a mated pair starts at $16. Delivery is eight to ten weeks factory direct or one to two weeks from distributors, based on part number availability.
