TE Connectivity O.C.H. Micro Circular Connectors

TE Connectivity’s O.C.H. micro circular connectors meet the mechanical and environmental performance requirements of MIL-STD-810G with typical applications including soldier vest cables, batteries, radios, antennas, and military vehicles. The connectors are protected by a lightweight aluminum shell and use thermoplastic inserts to minimize size and weight because every ounce counts in body-worn applications. TE’s O.C.H. micro circular connectors are available in a wide variety of plugs, receptacles, and crimp contacts and in different position counts and contact types, and they’re intermateable with Nett Warrior products. The connectors offer push/pull quick disconnect coupling for fast mating, with a breakaway force of 13 ±3 lbf. Copper alloy contacts are plated with gold over nickel and rated for 5A.
