ITT Cannon CT Series MIL-DTL-5015 Connectors


RUGGED 5015 CONNECTOR FOR HARSH ENVIRONMENTS

ITT Cannon CT series MIL-DTL-5015 connectors are manufactured to MIL-5015 for use in very harsh environments. ITT Cannon CT series heavy duty connectors were originally designed as aerospace components and are popular, cost-effective, rugged commercial and military connectors. Hundreds of contact layouts are available, including common 2-pin connector, 3-pin connector, 4-pin connector, 12-pin connector and 16-pin connector types. The ITT Cannon CT series is a waterproof connector that is completely sealed to withstand condensation, vibration, and flash-over.

FEATURES

ITT CANNON CT SERIES MIL-DTL-5015 CONNECTORS FEATURES

  • Full Military Temperature Range
    CT connectors will operate in temperatures from -55° to +125°C (-67° to +257°F) under the harshest possible conditions.

  • Wide Range of Wire Gauges and Current Carrying Capability
    Up to 245 amps with wire gauges from size 26 up to size 0 AWG wire.

  • Resilient Insulator & Grommet
    A resilient polychloroprene insulator and rear-sealing grommet guarantees a liquid-tight assembly. Crimp contacts can be inserted and removed a minimum of five cycles for field service.

  • Wide Variety of Contacts
    High reliability screw machine contacts with silver or gold plating are available in sizes from 20 through 0 to accommodate wire gauges from 26 to 0 AWG. Solder, crimp, PC, and Thermocouple contacts are available.

  • Rugged Shell
    Aluminum alloy shell and hardware create a rugged connector with minimal weight. These connectors have been used extensively in the military for many years and have proven their reliability in a wide range of combat and industrial applications.

  • Environmental
    Vibration proof and water proof. Will perform in the full range of MIL-DTL-5015 environments.

  • Standard Shielding Interface
    CT connectors meet requirements for MIL-DTL-5015 E/F/R styles of connectors. The threaded coupling provides superior EMI/RFI shielding without the need for special grounding spring components required for shielding bayonet style connectors. The threaded coupling nuts are used extensively in robotic applications where connector and cables rock continually. The standard CT coupling nuts contain holes for lock wires used in high-vibration or security applications.

  • Sealed Receptacles
    All CT solder receptacles have inserts and contacts bonded in place in accordance to the MIL-DTL-5015 specifications. These receptacles are sealed and their air leakage rate is not greater than one atmospheric cubic inch per hour (4.55 x 10-3 cubic centimeters per second) through the interface. Gaskets and seal screws are used to seal the panel and protect from leaks around the connectors.

  • High Performance, Low Cost
    Originally designed to the first military specification – Tri-Service connector for the Army, Air Force and Navy– these connectors are now widely used in industrial applications. These threaded connectors are easy to specify, purchase and assemble, providing long service life for applications needing minimum maintenance. PEI-Genesis assembles these in days to reduce the user's total cost of ownership.
