Rugged stainless jackscrews or easy-to-mate latches provide secure connections under severe environmental conditions.

Further technical details of the connector series include a 3A current rating per contact, a very wide operating temperature range from -55C to +125C, a vibration resistance of 10G for six hours, a shock resistance of 100G for 6ms and a durability of at least 500 mating cycles.
