Amphenol Socapex launches three new ranges of protective caps for its circular connectors. These ranges round out the current standard series to provide complete and lasting protection for all MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, II and III, MIL-DTL-26482, RJ Field and USB Field connectors.
Amphenol Socapex's self-closing caps offer real ease of use and optimal protection. They screw directly onto receptacles and are available in two types of material:
- composite for MIL-DTL-26482 connectors;
- aluminium for the MIL-DTL-38999 range.
A vast choice of plating finishes — including nickel, black zinc nickel, and cadmium — is available to guarantee increased protection against corrosion, impacts, and vibrations. In addition, the metal cap for the MIL-DTL-38999 range is IP67.
Standard metal caps
The standard versions with lanyard are compatible with MIL-DTL-38999, MIL-DTL-26482, RJ Field and USB Field connectors. The caps are available in aluminium, stainless steel, and bronze with a wide range of plating finishes, lanyards and eyelets to meet every possible need, application, and environment (IP68).
Amphenol Socapex's silicone caps with nylon cord withstand temperatures up to 200°C and are compatible with the aforementioned connectors. They are a cost-effective alternative and are IP67 rated for harsh
environments where damage from dust and moisture is possible.
