Question on Canon circular mil connectors

Discussion in 'Electronic Design' started by Don Lancaster, Jan 18, 2012.

  1. Some of these can have their inserts rotated into as many as four
    different orientations. Often noted by a W through Z. Presumably to let
    you have several cables with the same number of pins that are not
    interchangable.

    Can these rotations be changed in the field, or is this a factory only mod?

    There may be a series where the keying may be modified during the
    end-user connector build (pinning, backshell, etc.) but I'm not aware of
    any. Far less likely would be a connector that could be realigned post-
    assembly. All of the ones we've used have the keys machined into the
    housing, with a master key at 12 o'clock.

    I'm assuming that you're talking about MIL-5015 style connectors.

    Dunno about Cannon (note spelling). I've always used Amphenol.

    Amphenol can, in most cases be configured, in fact you have to order
    connectors by the part numbers of the individual components, which is an
    obstacle course. BTDT.

    I guess the Cannon product is similar, but the catalog requires Acrobat 8,
    so I guess ITT-Cannon won't be getting my business anytime soon :-|

    You *must* have the catalog, else you'll not get what you expected, BTDT,
    too.
