Circular Connectors - Housings


Circular connectors are interconnect products characterized by a cross section that is generally circular in shape and have contacts that are typically arranged on a polar coordinate system, rather than on a rectangular grid or coaxially. For products marketed as modular connector systems allowing configuration of a desired connector from a catalog of interoperable components, housing components are the portion of the connector into which contacts or contact insert assemblies are inserted, and to which supporting components such as backshells are attached.
