Engineers can download 3D CAD models for faster prototype design



ITT Interconnect Solutions expands dynamic 3D modeling website to include lightweight Nemesis Series mini-circular connectors

by Steve Barclay

ITT Interconnect Solutions, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of connectors, interconnects, and cable assemblies, has expanded its dynamic 3D modeling tool to include its innovative Nemesis Series connectors. Available at www.ittcannon.com, this online resource enables design engineers to utilize a single interface to search for ITT's industrial, commercial, military, aerospace and high-reliability interconnects; select various output model formats; and directly request the generation of a 3D model. Users can choose from a range of industry-standard CAD formats and receive the model as a downloadable zip file to import into their own CAD system for integrating into prototype system designs. This greatly increases flexibility and enables a number of different prototype designs be tried out to achieve an optimum solution more quickly and easily.

"To help engineers reduce design time, we continue to expand the ITT 3D modeling system, which allows engineers to download 3D CAD models for faster prototype design. Our most recent addition is the Nemesis Series lightweight, small form-factor mini-circular connectors," said David Impett, product manager at ITT Interconnect Solutions.

Providing optimum performance in harsh environments and fully-sealed to IP67 or IP68, Nemesis connectors suit applications where weight and size are critical. These include medical equipment, marine applications and handheld devices. The Nemesis range includes rugged stainless steel "Super Clean" connectors with a patented draw-back barrel design for cleaning and reconnection in seconds. Additional features include ITT ICS's patented breakaway Pogo Pin contact technology, which guarantees more than 10,000 mating cycles and assures easy connector mating and un-mating while retaining full 360 degree EMI shielding.

The Nemesis Pogo Pad receptacle design both eliminates the necessity for dust-caps and removes harsh environment "fouling," often a problem with non-pad receptacles. Further Nemesis design innovations include "blind mating" for reliable and fast connection without the need for visual or mechanical keying.

ITT ICS's 3D web modeling service is available to registered users of the ITT Cannon website at www.ittcannon.com. Registration is free and only takes a few minutes. Further Nemesis specifications are available from www.ittcannon.com.
