TE Connectivity's Circular Plastic Connectors (CPC) product line
offers a rugged, reliable connector system suitable for a wide range of
applications. The circular configuration provides designers with an
efficient use of board space. Mounting options include panel mount,
free-hanging and wire-to-board.
CPC receptacle and plug housings accept Type III+ or Size 20 signal
contacts, Type XII power contacts or AMP POWERBAND (size 8) contacts.
The housings are available in six series designed to accommodate
standard and high density signal, power with current up to 50A per
contact and combinations of signal and power in the same housing. The
product line includes several configurations with sealing to IP67.
The CPC product line also includes accessories to complete the cable or
panel assembly process such as cable clamps and boots, keying plugs, and
CPC is UL Recognized (File No. E28476) and CSA Certified (File No. LR 7189).
Series 1 Standard Density CPCs
Series 1 Standard Density CPCs enable the use of multiple combinations of signal and coaxial
circuits in the same housing by accepting durable Multimate contacts. Sealable to IP67, Series 1 accepts size 16 Multimate pin and socket contacts.
4 - 37
Series 2 High Density CPCs
Series 2 High Density CPCs are designed to accept Size 20 DF (precision formed) and Size 20
DM screw-machined) pin and socket contacts with a .040 1.02] pin
diameter. The smaller contact size allows for more circuit positions than Series 1 connectors.
8 - 63
Series 3 Power Density CPCs
Series 3 Power Density CPCs accept Type XII power contacts which can carry up to 25 amps per
contact. The Series 3 "Power Density" CPCs are available in both standard and reverse sex connector arrangements with 3 and 7 positions.
3 - 7
Series 4 Power & Signal Combination CPCs
Series 4 Power and Signal Combination CPCs combine the signal and coaxial circuit capabilities of
Series 1 connectors with the power circuit capabilities of Series 3
connectors. Series 4 accepts size 16 Multimate contacts and Type XII power contacts in the same housing.
13 - 22
Series 5 Power Sealable CPCs
Series 5 Power Sealable CPCs combine the revolutionary performance of the new AMP POWERBAND
Contact, high current contact in configurations similar to the Series 3
connectors. Environmentally sealable to IEC IP65 and IP67
specifications, Series 5 Power Density CPCs, accept POWERBAND stamped & formed contacts capable of carrying up to 50 amps.
IP65 & IP67
Series 6 Power & Signal Combination Sealable CPCs
Series 6 Power & Signal Combination Sealable CPCs combine the high current and environmental sealing capability
of Series 5, POWERBAND contacts, and the reliability of signal
carrying, low current Type III+ contacts. These combination standard and power density CPCs use both Multimate Size 16 contacts and POWERBAND 50-amp contacts in the same housing.
IP65 & IP67
UV-Resistant Sealed Circular Plastic Connectors (CPC)
TE Connectivity UV-Resistant Sealed Circular Plastic Connectors (CPC)
are designed using UL F1-rated resin for UV resistance in outdoor
applications. The UL F1 rating complies with industry standards for
long-term UV exposure. The housings are suitable for outside
applications where parts are subject to frequent or extended periods of
exposure to sunlight. The circular configuration uses less space than a
rectangular-style connector with an equal number of contacts to provide
an efficient use of space. Sealed to IP67, these housings do not require
an additional enclosure to protect the mated connector from water
TE Connectivity offers backshell accessories for its CPC product line. Options include cable clamps, panel mount flanges, cable boots, heat shrink sealing boots, peripheral seals, backshell extenders, coupling rings, and keying plugs.
TE Connectivity offers a wide range of precision pin and socket type contacts for signal and power, for
coaxial cable, and posted versions for back panel wiring applications.
TE's precision formed pin and socket signal contacts feature a high normal force which provides a low resistance in critical applications such as dry circuit signal conditions. Single contact current ratings range from 7.5 amperes at 30°C Temperature Rise to 13 amperes at 30°C Temperature Rise.
TE's precision formed pin and socket power contacts feature a high normal force which provides a low resistance in critical applications. Single contact current rating range from 23 amperes at 30°C Temperature Rise to 50 amperes at 30°C Temperature Rise.
TE offers precision screw-machined pin and socket coaxial contacts designed for applications that combine
power, and coaxial cable terminations. The contact design enables the application of coaxial cable, shielded conductors, and twisted-pair wire with a voltage rating of up to 325VRMS, and a current rating of 7.5 amperes at 30°C Temperature Rise.
TE HDP-20 Signal Contacts are high performance, precision-formed pin and socket signal contacts designed to be intermateable with any size 20 Subminiature D connector dimensionally complying with MIL-C-24308 crimp contacts. The crimp snap-in contacts allow loading of only the number of contacts being used.
