SOLARIS Series Slide Lock Connectors

SOLARIS Series Slide Lock Connectors

Amphenol's SOLARIS spring-loaded slide lock mechanism is straightforward to use: simply push to lock and slide to unlock. The slide lock provides convenient single handed and 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 a built-in cable tie access hole provides a “zero footprint” method to secure the connector to a bulkhead or cable bundle.

High grade polyetherimide plastic makes SOLARIS suitable for man/machine interfaces with high mating cycles, and provides a wide operating temperature range. Ultrasonically welded components mean 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 applications are free from dust, moisture, and corrosion when exposed to the real world.
