Connectors offer scope for future expansion

Paul Boughton
ITT Cannon's new 2mm Modular CBC 20 is another addition to the company's popular Tempus cable connector series. It has a two-part modular plug and receptacle structure that offers the interconnect headroom necessary to expand as design requirements change. Engineers will be able to use it to manipulate large amounts of data at greater speed in the layout of cable harnessing. The standard four- and five-row cable receptacles include all the components needed to assemble finished cable ends. The four-row versions provide 4x6 and 4 x12 contacts, and the five-row versions offer 5x6 and 5x12 contacts. They accommodate the most commonly used wire sizes (AWG 24 to 30) with insulation displacement contacts (IDC).

These connectors are fully compatible with IEC 61076-4-104 backplane connectors and are suitable for use in telecommunication, industrial, medical and instrumentation applications. ITT Cannon can also provide rapid deliveries and production capabilities for custom Tempus cable assemblies.

Tempus cable connectors are detailed in an application note that can be downloaded from ITT Cannon's website.
