CIRP - Hard Insert Connector for Industrial Range

The CIRP low fire hazard connector family - Rail approved - with plastic insert based on the Mil-C-5015 standard.

This circular connector family provides flexible arrangements and a rugged mechanical performance. The CIRP provides a modular solution to many applications. This IP67 rated connector (when mated) can withstand up to 2800 V/46 A, is space efficient and requires no filler plugs.  

Our advantages

  • Shortest connector of its type, taking up less space.
  • 2000 minium mating cycles.
  • Rugged and reliable under vibration and harsh environments.
  • Sealed webs in the grommets eliminate the need for filler plugs, also speeding up assembly as there is no need for dummy contacts.
  • No additional backshell adaptor needed for 90o backshell.
  • Multiple colour coded orientations.


  • Easy coupling, low friction roller pins on plug, reducing wear and easing connector mating (8Nm maximum coupling torque).
  • Stainless steel wear pins in receptacle shell for positive, repeatable locations.
  • 360o RFI grounding washer.
  • Hard plastic insulator.
  • Approved NFF16-101 Halogen free materials.
  • Robust beryllium copper clip retained contacts.
  • Modular design.
  • Mated connector seals to IP67, includes innovative environment sealing of grommet entry.
