Multi-pole Signal ConnectorsMulti-pole Signal Connectors

Signal/High Speed Data Connector which is based on the bayonet lock connector. They feature a low fire hazard thermoplastic insulator, which is removable for repositioning at an alternative orientation. There are 4 styles of multi-pole contact available Co-ax, Twin-ax, Tri-ax & Quadrax.

The unique contact design allows for simple and robust termination to multi-core. The contacts can be mixed within the same insulator to provide many different combinations of wire termination. Connector sealing features a stepped wire sealing grommet, which provides a water tight seal to the cables.
