Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) has rolled out a modular connector family, claimed to be highly reliable with a life cycle of up to 100,000 for high cycle deployments in a broad range of applications.

The SC1 connector's touted reliability is based on multiple features. Mainly, it is designed around the CP-059 probe series, which features an internal bias design minimising the potential of disconnection even in high vibration applications. Aside from this, it has an active biasing to allow for continual internal contact, a deep draw plunger make for a low mass had to cope with shock and vibration, as well as an advanced compliance to overcome planarity issues.

Each contact is capable of carrying 10A, and its point pitches down .1 inch. The probe count ranges from 2 to 200, and can be combined with one of three end configurations: long through hole, standards through hole, and surface mount.

The connector is available, and a "Quick Builder" tool on the ECT website helps to define the details of the requirement.
