Combo-D connector solutions from PEI-Genesis

27 July 2023

PEI-Genesis assembles D-Sub connectors — also called D-Subminiature — in world-class automated facilities and is certified to build D-Sub connectors for Positronic, ITT Cannon, Cinch Connectivity Solutions and Amphenol. These rugged rectangular D-Sub connectors are designed for commercial, industrial and military/defense fields in addition to high performance computer, aerospace and other complex applications.

Combination, or combo, D-Sub connectors combine multiple interconnect types into one fully shielded product, which decreases the number of I/O interfaces required and significantly reduces the possibility of electromagnetic interference/radio frequency (RF) interference leakage.

ITT Cannon Combination D-Sub connectors have proven ideal for applications that require optimization of space while improving overall shielding, such as video coaxial transmission, RF and telecom transmission (50 Ω), and power interconnects (up to 40 A). These ITT Cannon connectors are commonly used in aerospace, defense, industrial and transportation applications. In addition to offering a versatile range ofSource: PEI-GenesisSource: PEI-Genesis contact combinations, they also come in various shell types, including RoHS compliant versions, dimpled shells and stainless-steel shells for durability.

PEI-Genesis also supplies Positronic Combo-D connectors in professional, industrial and military performance options. These devices are quality solutions for both indoor and outdoor environments and enable mixed contact combinations of power, shielded, air, high voltage and signal contacts within one body, making them ideal for power, signal, coax, high voltage and fiber optic needs.
