This type of device is engineered to optimize signal integrity in applications with limited internal space. Manufactured in materials ranging from molded plastics to die-cast alloys, our rectangular connector housings are engineered for reliable wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connections. Our portfolio offers different ratings and sizes, with or without locking features. Vertical headers are available with optional polarization pegs and drain holes and offer a blind mate version. Right angle headers offer optional screw mount flanges.
Designed for rugged performance
In commercial aircraft, ARINC 600 connectors provide modular, reliable connectivity for flight critical Avionics equipment while our DMC-M Single Module connectors enable EWIS compliant, tool-less installation connectivity for in-cabin equipment such as In-flight Entertainment systems.In industrial controls, our VAL-U-LOK connectors with Terminal Position Assurance (TPA) help protect against a contact backing out of its cavity when subjected to vibration, shock, or pulling force. In dishwashers and refrigerators, our POWER TRIPLE LOCK connectors are designed with 3-in-1 latching for improved connection reliability; these offer ergonomic features to ease assembly. In HVAC systems, our universal MATE-N-LOK connectors offer an expansive range of options – including seals – and are rated 600VAC/VDC and 19A. In high-speed data center and networking equipment, our Sliver Internal Cabled Interconnect system provides a highly robust metal housing design on the connector cage to help withstand cable pull while an active latch provides additional connection security. With TE's portfolio of rectangular connectors, which includes our Heavy Duty, Dynamic Series, and RJ45 connectors, you gain the durability and reliability of a product engineered to perform in the harshest environments.
Rectangular Connector Hoods & Bases
Heavy Duty Connectors (HDC) are rectangular industrial connectors designed to transmit power, data and signal in the toughest of conditions. In environments with vibrations, risk of dust, temperature challenges and mechanical impact, our HDC connectors provide a reliable solution with rock fall safe aluminum enclosures with protection degree from IP65 up to IP69k.
