Corporation (NYSE:ITT) and its Cannon brand interconnect systems
have a long legacy of equipping defense forces with innovative,
high-reliability connector technologies. Today, these systems are
lighter, smaller, sealed and ruggedized versions of our standard
high-reliability connectors that offer an increasing number of benefits
for soldier-worn applications.
With faster high-speed data and RF connections, these new connector
systems are designed to work with smaller Micro and Nano wire sizes that
minimize weight and maximize performance and reliability. They also can
be used with the latest fabrics in low- and no-profile configurations
that minimize their presence to the soldiers wearing them.
Delivering reliable power and more mission-critical data in a
lightweight, robust and integrated package helps lighten soldiers'
physical loads and helps them maintain contact and receive crucial
Next week, ITT and its Cannon brand will highlight their comprehensive
array of mission critical applications for soldiers - including weapons
control, biosensors, threat location, GPS, radio communications, thermal
imaging and battery power - at Eurosatory, the premier global defense
and security show being held in Paris June 16-20.
These latest connector solutions feature super clean pull-back barrel
cleaning systems, space saver "no profile" designs, rugged stainless
steel construction, pogo pad technology that eliminates the need for
dust caps, pogo contact technology that delivers increased durability
with more than 10,000 cycles, and canted spring technology featuring
snap-on and break-away coupling technology with 360-degree EMI
"ITT and our Cannon team are committed to connecting and protecting
soldiers today and in the future by developing advanced technologies for
critical defens-related harsh environment applications," said Neil
Yeargin, president of ITT's Interconnect Solutions business. "Our rugged
connector solutions offer conductivity, flexibility and safety in
increasingly smaller and lighter form factors. We will continue to focus
our engineering on solutions that help enhance safety and power the most
important mission critical technologies."
At Eurosatory, Cannon will showcase the Nemesis mini-connector line for
the soldier wearable market. The Nemesis Space Saver and Nemesis Super
Clean versions deliver enhanced connectivity and safety in a smaller,
lightweight and easy-to-clean design architecture. Available in versions
with extra seals and lower profile, the connectors can be conveniently
embedded into clothing and are ideal for use with sensors and other
bidirectional location service applications.
The Nano D line of rectangular connectors offers one of the smallest
packages available on the market today. The Nano series is engineered to
channel events into a single pipe, offering more efficient fiber optics
communications. Nano D is ideally suited to handle high-bandwidth data
in harsh environments and offer flexibility in either wearable or
"Our connector solutions are engineered to be the lightweight, reliable
and durable so soldiers can focus on their missions," said Wes Morgan,
director of product management for ITT's Interconnect Solutions
business. "We are proud to transform and power modern defense forces
with connectors offering improved conductivity, smaller form factors,
reduced weight and highly engineered construction with corrosion
Cannon is also showcasing its Universal Contact connectors enabling
high-reliability contacts for power data and RF; Micro RF connectors
ideal for high-bandwidth data and RF applications in a micro size;
Nemesis micro circular connectors with unique pull back break-away
coupling systems with pogo pad contacts for easy cleaning; Micro and
Nano-D rectangular connectors ideal for PCB and panel mount integration;
and the comprehensive MKJ series of circular interconnects with crimp
and poke field terminated contacts with multiple coupling styles
including ratcheting threaded versions and breakaway styles.
