ITT Industries, Cannon now offers a rugged, easy-to-assemble circular connectors designed for high reliability industrial and commercial applications. Cannon’s MIL-C-5015-style CA A&B interconnect features fixed (non-rotating) machined electrical contacts. The advantage of a fixed contact system is that it offers customers reduced assembly time and lower cost. The contacts are also silver-plated, which makes them especially durable and damage resistant.
These MIL-C-5015-style connectors are offered with corrosion-resistant green zinc plating, which is more aesthetically appealing than cadmium. A black zinc version is also available. Zinc is more environmentally friendly, exceeding European environmental standards. Among the other features of Cannon’s A&B connector series are high-strength aluminum alloy connector bodies and high-strength plastic insulators that are resistant to chipping.
