Amphenol PCD Terrapin Connectors

Amphenol PCD Terrapin Connectors are designed especially for communication systems that operate in harsh environments. Featuring a rugged shell design and IP68 sealing in both mated and unmated conditions, Terrapin Connectors provide highly reliable performance in the most severe conditions. Terrapin shells are machined from brass for increased number of mating cycles and higher degree of robustness over traditional aluminum connectors.

The Terrapin Connector product family includes Circular Push-Pull and Micro-USB connectors.
These connectors are used extensively in ruggedized routers, military LAN switches, harsh environment data collection, robotics, battlefield communications, and mass transit communications.

Circular Push-Pull Connectors

Amphenol PCD miniature circular push-pull connectors are designed for communications in harsh environments. Featuring a rugged shell design, Terrapin Miniature Push-Pull Circular Connectors deliver superior EMC performance with high environmental sealing to IP68 in both mated and unmated conditions. Resilient even in severe conditions, the RoHS compliant black-silver plating is both low-luster and corrosion resistant. Amphenol PCD Terrapin Miniature Push-Pull Circular Connectors are Gigabit ethernet and USB 2.0 compatible, making these connectors well-suited for ruggedized routers, military LAN switches, harsh environment data collection, robotics, battlefield communications, and mass transit communications. Amphenol PCD offers the miniature Terrapin connectors with design options such as an optional locking mechanism, multiple shell sizes with up to 37 contacts, and standard or tailored overmould solutions.

Amphenol PCD Terrapin Connectors Performance Specifications

Micro-USB

Amphenol PCD Terrapin Micro-USB Connectors offer Micro-USB technology in a rugged, IP68 sealed connector to increase durability and reliability for USB data transmission in harsh environment applications. Terrapin provides a backshell strain relive with screen termination, 2000 mating cycles, 5 keying options, and a miniature footprint <16mm Ø. The shell design also ensures blindmating of the receptacle to the plug and IP68 sealing in both mated and un-mated conditions to eliminate ingress of moisture and dust through the interface. These Micro-USB Connectors deliver highly reliable performance in severe conditions with an environmental temperature range of -55°C to +85°C, IP68 sealing 1hr @ 2m immersion, 1000hrs salt spray, vibration 10g sine, 30hrs, 5Khz. Compliant with High Speed USB 2.0 specification and intermateable with standard COTS Mirco-USB plug connectors, Terrapin Micro-USB Connectors are suitable for both military and industrial applications.
