Space saving, integrated solutions
Multi-pin interconnects with cylindrical housing and custom contact interface design, these circular power connectors are increasingly used instead of rectangular connectors due to benefits such as strength for mechanical performance in demanding applications and saving space by allowing several contact types to be grouped together in a single connector interface from RF, fibre and signal through to high power.
We also offer a unique combination of design expertise and leading-edge technologies from a comprehensive range of Connectors and cables, working with world-leading suppliers and acting as your technical partner to help solve design challenges.
As an authorised assembling distributor for circular connectors, we work with the widest range of connectors in Europe. We build over 250,000 units each year within our dedicated Interconnect and Cable Assembly Technology Centre with a 48-hour turn around to give you a responsive service that cuts time and cost.

Backshells and circular connector accessories
Supplementing the circular connector product ranges are a comprehensive selection of accessories including protection caps, circular cable connector clamps and backshells, with ruggedised metal types for harsh environments assembled and kitted within our Interconnect and Cable Assembly Technology Centre. We work with you to select the correct product for the environment, connector type, cable selection and application ensuring the product remains fully protected. In addition to supplying the connector, contacts, backshells and protection caps we can incorporate into fully tested cable assemblies if required.
Metal circular connectors
For the harshest of environments, there are numerous metal connector shell options available. Standard metal circular connector types are aluminium based offering a strong yet lightweight construction, which is then supplemented by corrosion-resistant platings ranging from the proven Olive Drab Cadmium plating through to new RoHS compliant finishes including Black Zinc Nickel.
Where the connector will be operating in the most extreme environments, different base metals can be selected including Marine Bronze and Stainless Steel, which offer the highest level of salt spray corrosion resistance. The latter is also suitable for extremes of pressure in subsea, hermetic applications.
We can help with ensuring the correct material and plating finish is selected for the environment and application, including any specific compliances and compatibility requirements.
Power-hybrid circular connectors
For applications where multiple cable runs are not desirable the use of hybrid circular connector platforms becomes a solution. We can provide circular connector systems assembled at our Interconnect and Cable Assembly Technology Centre and from leading suppliers that offer an unprecedented range of contact options, including but not limited to, signal, low power, high power, RF coaxial and quadrax, PCB, thermocouples & fibre. We can work with you in ensuring the most logical and functional configuration is selected for your application from concept through to supply of full tested assemblies if required.
