ITT Interconnect Solutions has created a corrosion-resistant variation of its D-Subminiature product range in response to customer requests for a connector that is able to operate in a highly corrosive environment, while meeting MIL-Spec requirements and JEDEC standards for RoHS compliance. By equipping the D-Sub line of connectors with MIL-Spec P grade stainless steel shells and hardware to ensure stringent corrosion resistance, ITT Interconnect Solutions has achieved a robust D-Sub design for applications in the telecommunications, aerospace, marine, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries.
Intermateable with standard D-sub connectors, the corrosion-resistant versions offer high strength and withstand continuous exposure to salt spray and corrosive chemicals. The connectors are medical and pharmaceutical grade, rated to 40A maximum current per contact and are available in nine through to 50 contact patterns in standard sizes and 15 through to 78 contact patterns in high-density sizes. Five shell sizes are offered: E, A, B, C and D.
