ITT, Electronic Components specialized connectors

Design engineers in the aerospace, hydrospace and specialty industries can now specify custom connectors and assemblies from ITT, Electronic Components, with deliveries starting at 12 weeks. Prototypes can be delivered in six weeks.

ITT offers special purpose electrical connectors designed for harsh environment and mission-critical applications in the military, aerospace and hydrospace industries. These include special release connectors, bulkhead and hull-penetrating connectors and custom cable assemblies.

The special-release connectors for aerospace applications feature special umbilical and lanyard release functions that automatically disconnect at the time of system launch. These connectors can incorporate both pneumatic and electrical lines in the same assembly and are suitable for interstage separation, weapons storage and pylon applications.

Special connector capabilities for undersea applications include custom connectors for submarine sonar sets; wet mateable connectors and umbilical cable assemblies for hull-mounted sonar arrays; lanyard-release connectors and umbilical cable assemblies for torpedo tube-launch missile systems; header assemblies for sonar system canisters, hull and missile tube penetrations; and surface ship launch systems.

The custom service includes rapid prototyping from ITT's model shop and complete in-house testing at its fully-approved product evaluation lab.
