SANTA ANA, Calif. — ITT Interconnect Solutions, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of connectors, interconnects and cable assemblies, has partnered with distributor Pan Pacific Electronics to offer its advanced Quadrax connector family with reduced lead times. Pan Pacific Electronics, a global aerospace distributor, has carried the ITT Quadrax product line since November 2011. The Quadrax product family includes ARINC 600 connectors and Mil-DTL-38999 connectors, in addition to insulators, connector assembly kits, shells, pins, sockets and crimps.
“Pan Pacific Electronics has established itself as a premier distributor within the military and aerospace marketplaces. We have enjoyed a solid 10-year relationship with Pan Pacific Electronics, and we look forward to working with them to better serve our mutual customers by reducing lead times of Quadrax product now stocked by Pan Pacific Electronics,” said James Herman, VP of sales at ITT Interconnect Solutions.
ITT’s BKA Series meets the performance requirements of ARINC 600. The BKA Series connectors feature size-eight rear-release crimp pin and socket Quadrax contacts, and size-eight front-release PC pin Quadrax contacts that provide ease of repair. The crimp contacts terminate to 100-ohm Star Quadrax cable. The size-two and -three connectors can accommodate from 28 to 56 Quadrax contacts. The ARINC 600-designed BKA Series connectors feature Quadrax contacts keyed to an Ethernet-specific aluminum insert. Mix and match inserts allow signal, power and Ethernet connections.
ITT’s KJAQ Series connectors are MIL-DTL-38999 qualified and feature a metal housing that prevents insulator damage. Utilizing Quadrax technology in the rear-release crimp pin and socket contacts, as well as the front-release PC pin contacts, the KJAQ Series connector is 100% scoop-proof, which allows for blind mate situations. A variety of layouts are available including special/custom capabilities.
