Circular plastic connectors now CSA certified

Louise Davis

TE Connectivity’s circular plastic connectors (CPCs) are now UL-recognised (File Number E28476) and meet criteria for CSA Certification (LR 7189) from the United States Department of Defence.

Through their circular configuration, CPC and CPC cable assemblies provide designers with an efficient use of real estate and the mounting options include panel mount, free-hanging and wire-to-board. Receptacle and plug housings accept Type III+ or Size 20 signal contacts, Type XII power contacts or AMP Powerband (size 8) contacts.
The housings come in six series designed to handle standard and high-density signal, power with current up to 50A per contact and combinations of signal and power in the same housing. Sealing to IP67 is offered in several configurations. The CPC line includes accessories to complete the cable or panel assembly process such as cable clamps and boots, keying plugs and sealing caps.
