Multi-wire connectors require a housing in addition to one male insert, one female insert, a base, and a plug, adapter or cable gland to complete a reliable connector. Housings consist of a hood that mates with a base or a coupler with a locking system to ensure coupling stability and protection.
Heavy-duty multi-wire connectors are used for easy signal, power, and data connections to provide a secure, simple, and time-saving installation. Their rugged housings offer excellent protection against dirt, moisture, and mechanical stress and are ideal for terminating multiconductor cables. Connectors are assembled from components and require, at minimum, a male and a female insert, and a housing comprised of a hood and base.

Inserts provide the wiring connections and are mounted between the hood and the base of the multi-wire connector assembly or a one-piece housing.
Housings are available in Hoods, Bases, Couplers, Bulkhead and Surface mount configurations which provides a protective covering for the insert and wiring.
All housings are available in a standard profile. Several are offered with a high construction (HC) profile that allows more room for wiring the higher density inserts.
For use with crimp style inserts, crimp contacts are securely connected to bare wires and installed into the multi-wire insert. A perfect crimp connection is gas-tight, corrosion free, and is equal to a cold weld of the parts being connected.
Plugs, adapters, and cable glands provide IP protection and support for cable connections to housings or bases.
Housing insert plates provide a way to secure non-standard connectors, including 9-pin D-sub connectors, into a housing component.
Code pins are used in applications where there are identical connectors that could be coupled with the incorrect mate, potentially causing equipment damage or breakdown. Code pins replace the installation screws on the inserts.
Polarization keys provide a safe way for connectors to align properly, ensuring proper polarity.
