ITT Cannon Trident Connectors: Trident Ringlock, Trident Neptune & TNM



INTERMATEABLE WITH SOURIAU CONNECTORS

ITT Cannon Trident connectors are a family of cost-effective, reliable circular connectors that include the Trident Ringlock, Trident Neptune and TNM series. All three series of ITT Cannon Trident connectors are fully-sealed to IP67. The Trident Ringlock and Trident Neptune series are UL94-V0 circular plastic connectors with a metal coupling nut and bayonet retention mechanisms, providing the cost and weight benefits of a plastic connector with the durability of a metal connector. Trident Ringlock connectors are intermateable with Souriau/Burndy Trim-Trio (UTG). Trident Neptune uses the same contacts as Ringlock, but is a unique product perfect as a transportation connector or in harsh environments where full-sealing and a mix of power and signal contacts are required. ITT Cannon’s TNM series is an all-metal version similar to MIL-DTL-26482, but lower cost and not intermateable. For full details on the ITT Cannon Trident connector family, see the product specifications below.

FEATURES

ITT CANNON TRIDENT SERIES (TRIDENT RINGLOCK, TRIDENT NEPTUNE & TNM) FEATURES

  • Strong, Light Weight, Low Cost
    Superior to plastic circular connectors and less costly than metal connectors. Trident’s metal bayonet coupling nut and locking mechanism provide strength and life comparable to an all metal connector. Bodies are of durable UL94V0 thermoplastic with high strength nickel plated metal coupling nuts and bayonet ring. Molded rubber and silicone seals guarantee water-tightness.

  • Attractive Appearance
    Nice enough for front panel mounting.

  • Submersible or Waterjet-proof Versions
    Neptune uses a rear individual wire sealing grommet and is fully submersible to IP67. Ringlock is protected against submersion to IP67 using gland seal cable clamp.

  • Wide Temperature Range
    Trident will operate in temperatures from -55ºC to +120ºC (-67º to +248ºF) under conditions of high humidity, severe vibration, ice, and mud.

  • Wide Range of Wire Gauges and Current Carrying Capability
    Up to 30 amps per contact with wire sizes from 28 AWG up to 12 AWG wire. New TNM 700 volt 40 amp power for up to 8 AWG.

  • Standard and Reverse Connector Housings
    In the Trident STANDARD configuration, the receptacles use socket contacts and the plugs use pin contacts. A REVERSED version is also available for safety and/or polarization. Standard and reversed connectors will not intermate. ‘Keying Pins’ are also available to polarize connectors with the same orientation and layout used on the same panel to prevent mis-mating.

  • Wide Range of Contact Styles
    Contacts are available in crimp, PC, coax, wire wrap or first make/last break for ground connections.

  • Field Serviceable
    The use of removable crimp contacts allows connections to be changed or modified in the field if necessary. Contacts are copper alloy with a range of gold or tin platings.

  • Agency Approvals
    • UL and CSA (Trident Ringlock)
    • IP67 Submersible

Curves apply to single contacts in isolation. Use of smaller wire gauges or more than one contact in a connector requires derating.

Contact us for additional derating information.



HOW TO SELECT ITT CANNON TRIDENT SERIES (TRIDENT RINGLOCK, TRIDENT NEPTUNE & TNM) CONNECTORS

STEP 1.

Determine number of circuits required per connector (4 to 48). Note that some Neptune layouts (shaded rows) have a mixture of power and signal contacts.

STEP 2.

Choose Trident Ringlock (waterjet proof) or Neptune (submersible). Neptune part numbers are shaded in chart.

STEP 3.

Select connector sex: STANDARD or REVERSED. Standard plugs have pin contacts, receptacles have sockets. Reversed plugs have socket contacts, receptacles have pins.

STEP 4.

Choose shell style: PLUG, FLANGED RECEPTACLE, or JAM NUT.

STEP 5.

Find part number on chart (remember, shaded part numbers are NEPTUNE).

STEP 6.

Select endbell, if needed. Neptune comes with low profile wire seal endbell; however, all endbells shown can be optionally used with Neptune connectors.

STEP 7.

Choose dust cap, if required.

STEP 8.

Select contacts and tooling below.




HOW TO SELECT ITT CANNON TRIDENT SERIES (TRIDENT RINGLOCK, TRIDENT NEPTUNE & TNM) CONTACTS

TNM CONNECTORS

ITT CANNON TRIDENT SERIES TNM CONNECTORS



TNM 700 Volt Power Connector System
Shell Size 161



The TNM range of connectors is an extension of the long established Neptune and Trident Ringlock connector series but with the advantage of a number of additional features. These include RF shielding and moisture sealing to IP67.

The connectors feature strong nickel-plated zinc alloy shells with a metal coupling ring for high reliability and durability. When used with the new low cost shielded endbells the connector system provides RF shielding from cable to equipment or cable to cable that satisfy EMC requirements.

The signal contacts used are from the standard Trident contact range (See pages 58-59). The recommended contacts are the stamped and formed Two Part, available with either tin or gold plated finish. If a higher performance is required the Trident Three Part machined contacts can be used. All signal contacts have a current rating of 13 Amps and wires with conductors 14 - 28AWG (2.50 mm2 -.08 mm2) can be accommodated. Note if more than 4 contacts per connector are designed to run at, or near, their full rated current for sustained periods, a derating factor must be applied. For further details please call 800-523-0727.



Mating face of plug for standard sex is shown. Reverse sex have mirror image cavity identification.
