SANTA ANA, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ITT Corporation (NYSE:ITT) will showcase new lightweight and robust connector technologies to meet the evolving needs in the global security, defense and soldier wearable markets at DSEI. The DSEI show is a premier global defense event being held in London Sept. 10-13.
In response to an increasing demand for products that combine power and data in a robust, lightweight package, ITT’s Interconnect Solutions business and its Cannon brand have released the improved Nemesis mini-connector line for the soldier wearable market. This new version combines enhanced connectivity and safety in a smaller, lightweight 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.
“ITT has a long legacy of developing advanced technologies to address critical defense-related applications which are then adapted for other harsh environment applications in markets such as commercial aerospace, oil and gas, medical and transportation,” said Neil Yeargin, president of ITT’s Interconnect Solutions business. “Our new lines of rugged connector solutions offer conductivity, flexibility and safety in increasingly smaller and lighter form factors. We will continue to partner and invest in new technologies that meet the strategic needs of our customers.”
The 38999 Aluminum Hermetic series delivers a smaller, lighter connector with the same durability qualities as glass-sealed alternatives on the marketplace at a reduced cost. The Hermetic uses a proprietary hybrid sealing method that can withstand the harshest environments. The ITT Cannon brand product is engineered with corrosion resistant materials that can withstand high temperatures and keep water out resulting in dependable performance.
“We are excited to continue the ITT legacy of developing highly engineered solutions for the defense industry,” said Anh Phan, vice president of marketing for ITT’s Interconnect Solutions business. “The new 38999 Aluminum Hermetic offers our customers a cost-effective alternative to glass-sealed products in the marketplace. Our hybrid sealing method employing polymers provides better conductivity, at less weight and is constructed with corrosion resistant materials.”
The Cannon brand is also showcasing the Nano 32129 mini connector which is engineered to channel events into a single pipe offering more efficient fiber optics communications. The Nano series is ideally suited to handle high bandwidth data in harsh environments and offer flexibility in either wearable or board-mountable applications.
