Rugged Interconnects for Harsh Environments eBook




Rear panel mount cable connectors are available for Harwin’s 2 mm-pitch Datamate and 1.25 mm-pitch Gecko high-reliability series. The advantage of rear panel mount is that the bulk of the connector housing is located inside the enclosure for greater protection against damage and an aesthetically appealing design.

New Datamate backshells address increasingly commonplace right-angle interconnect orientations. They mate directly with Harwin’s cabling metal backshells for its female Datamate cable connectors. This means a fully EMI/RFI shielded connection can be established in a horizontal PCB to cable connection.

The GT50 Series wire-to-board connector has a 2-point contact system enclosed between two springs that minimizes the effect of heat shrinkage on the contacts and improves contact reliability. As a result, the GT50 connector supports high heat applications up to 125°C. For many automotive applications, LiDAR, and more.




MIL-DTL-28840 connectors by Glenair, commonly used for shipboard applications, offer a high-density insert arrangement and high-shock performance. They feature RFI/EMI shielding, scoop-proof shells, and corrosion-resistant materials and finishes. They also offer maximum protection against fuels, oils, coolants, and cleansers.

CA Bayonet is a versatile and extremely reliable connector series with a proven “reverse bayonet” coupling design for exceptional vibration protection. It is designed to VG95234 specifications and ideal for a wide variety of applications and available in a number RoHS-compliant plating options.

9176-700 Series Capped IDC connectors for 18–24AWG wire are tested to automotive levels of shock, vibration, and temperature cycling and achieve a gas-tight connection to PCBs for long-term reliability in harsh environment applications including detonators for the oil and gas industry.




The most rugged cables for demanding environments: J1939, RS485, 100baseT1, 135C automotive grade, XLPE/SAE, high flex, power over data, retractile coil cords and more. Northwire design engineers will help you select the right cable materials and configuration to perform with your end application.

Feed-through adapters M12 X- and D-coded to RJ45 for electrical cabinets feature high performance Ethernet cabling, 10 GB/100 MB device connection, and solid refined die-cast housing. The M12 X-coded jack is IP67, per IEC/PS 61076-2-109. The RJ45 jack is IP20-rated, per IEC 60603-7-51. Suitable for railway applications.

Nano 360 Circular Connectors Series utilizes Omnetics’ rugged and reliable Flex-Pin contact system, is spaced on 25 mil (.64mm) centerlines, has a 9.0 mm mated length, and is specified to MIL-DTL-32139. These ultra-miniature circular connectors are ideal for industries that require small and durable performance.
