Solaris Series

SOLARIS is a small, plastic, easy-to-use rectangular connector designed specifically for low and medium power applications.

Solaris’ spring-loaded slide lock mechanism is a snap to use - simply push to lock, and slide to unlock. The slide lock provides convenient single handed & tool-less mating, eliminating the Foreign Object Debris (FOD), found in typical screw mount D-Subs.  Each housing has raised finger ridges for a sure grip, and built-in cable tie access hole provides a “zero footprint” method to secure the connector to a bulkhead or cable bundle.

High grade polyethermide plastic makes SOLARIS suitable for man/machine interfaces with high mating cycles, and provides a wide operating temperature range.  Ultrasonically welded components means void free joints, sealing out humidity for long lasting, crack free operation over the life of the installation.   Interfacial seal and wire seal grommets provide IP67 sealing, meaning your application is free from dust, moisture and corrosion when exposed to the real world.

So when you need a small, rugged, lightweight, easy to use rectangular connector - think SOLARIS!
