Designated the Trident Series, the connectors are offered in six configurations including Snap Together (rectangular and slimline), Multiway (rack and panel), Ringlock (circular), Neptune (circular) and TNM (circular) devices.

Additional applications for the Trident connectors include rail, test, communications and manufacturing equipment, and robotic systems.

The Snap Together (rectangular and slimline) connectors feature an operating voltage of 250Vac rms. Contact current rating is to 13A for the rectangular connector and 10A for the slimline version. Insulation resistance is 5000M? at 500Vdc.

Multiway (rack and panel) connectors are fully tested to MIL-STD-202 and feature a test voltage of 200VAC rms for 60sec and an insulation resistance of 5000M ? at 500Vdc. Operating temperature ranges from -55C to +125C.

The Ringlock (circular) connectors feature an operating voltage of 250Vac rms and a contact current rating up to 13A. Insulation resistance is 5000Mohms at 500Vdc.

The Neptune and TNM circular connectors mix signal and power contacts in one housing and feature IP67 sealing. Test voltage is 2000Vac rms, with an insulation resistance of 5000M? at 500Vdc. Working voltage for the Neptune connector is 25V.

The TNM connector features an operating voltage of 250Vac and a single contact current rating of 6A or 13A (crimp), with 40A power contacts.

Typical pricing for the Trident connectors ranges from $1.00 to $7.00 in quantities of 1,000 pieces. Lead time is from 6 weeks to 10 weeks.
